Critic Reviews for Capital in the Twenty-First Century

All Critics (41) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (38) | Rotten (3)

  • It's brisk, first-rate stuff, and not especially radical. I can see it being shown in schools.

  • Piketty's picture is no less dismaying for being so lavishly detailed.

    September 24, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • If Piketty is a rock star, the film paints capitalism as a supergroup whose biggest hits were hugely popular, but are long in the past. New material has not been well received.

    September 23, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Trust me this is a movie that provokes a consistent sense of "Whoa!" By the end, you'll know with greater clarity than you did before why we're in the mess we're in.

    May 3, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A sleek tour of economic history over the last 400 years or so.

    April 30, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A slick and engaging film that speeds through the history of modern capitalism with very few pauses for reflection.
