Critic Reviews for Citizen Koch
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.
"Citizen Koch" is undisciplined and depressing, yet still strangely worthwhile.
Audience Reviews for Citizen Koch
I didn't think it was as bad as the critics are giving it. Definitely gives a nice understanding of the Citizens United Bill, Koch Brothers, Tea Party, and all that other good stuff. It can also be racist as hell sometimes (not the doc, the people they were showing). Good Concept, Decent execution.
I'm no american, this is an american film, for Americans. I tried to care but, I'm not american and politics is overrated.
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.
