Movie Info

Ayn Rand & the Prophecy of Atlas Shrugged is a feature length documentary film that examines the resurging interest in Ayn Rand's epic and controversial 1957 novel and the validity of its dire prediction for America. Set in what novelist and philosopher Rand called 'the day after tomorrow,' Atlas depicts an America in crisis, brought to her knees by a corrupt establishment of government regulators and businessmen with political pull - the 'looters' and the 'moochers' - who prey on individual achievement. Ayn Rand & the Prophecy of Atlas Shrugged looks into Rand's background for the ideas and philosophy that inspired and shaped her novel and seeks to determine whether America is indeed headed for the disastrous outcome she predicted. -- (C) Official Site

½

A detailed analysis of Atlas Shrugged and how the resurgence of Atlas Shrugged may mirror the fact that the events in the books are coming true. More of a promotional film for Atlas Shrugged the movies series than actual documentary, but regardless, it still interests me greatly to see how they compare the fictional America with the reality in parallel. A good film for the objectivists but not so welcome for the new comers.

Ayn Rand & the Prophecy of Atlas Shrugged is a brilliant documentary that explores one of most prolific authors of the 20th century. The film covers the life of Ayn Rand and attempts to explain why she wrote her novels with a philosophical subtext. It also focuses on her final novel, Atlas Shrugged, and how it represents the pinnacle of what her writing was attempting to achieve. Rand's philosophy of Objectivism is also looked at, along with how it was developed through her writing of Atlas Shrugged. Informative and compelling, Ayn Rand & the Prophecy of Atlas Shrugged is an impressive documentary.
