Critic Reviews for Citizen Koch

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (14) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (16)

  • The movie bleakly emphasizes the sense of debilitating powerlessness of the average citizen without the means to bring anything but their vote to the ballot box.

  • If the real triumph of the Tea Party is getting middle- and working-class citizens to vote against their own best interests, it's going to take a documentary more passionate and more revelatory than this one to make that point.

  • If you have a shred of idealism left, it's hard to watch "Citizen Koch" without a mounting sense of despair and outrage over the influence that money has come to wield over modern elections.

  • "Citizen Koch" is preaching to the choir. Which might not be a pointless exercise, seeing how the choir failed to show up for the last midterm election in 2010, and might need extra motivation not to repeat that mistake this November.

    June 19, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "Citizen Koch" is undisciplined and depressing, yet still strangely worthwhile.

    June 19, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Most of the movie is a backgrounder on the Citizens United case, in which a deeply divided Supreme Court opened the door to truckloads of campaign cash from tycoons and corporations.

Audience Reviews for Citizen Koch

  • Dec 04, 2014
    A great doc that should be seen by every American (especially the average clueless Republican and those who don't vote), about how an outrageous decision of the Supreme Court set a precedent for campaign advertisement that would change forever the outcome of US elections.
