Movie Info

Crossett, Arkansas is home to about 5,500 people, one Georgia-Pacific paper and chemical plant owned by billionaire brothers Charles Koch and David Koch, and a startling rate of cancer and illness. This groundbreaking investigative documentary follows local pastor David Bouie as he fights to save his community. It offers a rare look inside a small town ruled by a single company, where the government's environmental protections have been subverted and ignored, leaving its citizens to take on entrenched powers in a fight for justice.

Critic Reviews for Company Town

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

A vital, eye-opening portrait.

December 7, 2017 | Full Review…

Even the rudimentary qualities of the filmmaking (cheap-looking camera work, poorly punctuated title cards) somehow add to its urgency, as if the movie needed to get its message out by any means necessary.

September 7, 2017 | Full Review…

Infuriating and, sadly, not at all surprising.

September 3, 2017 | Full Review…

Perhaps the film will inspire somebody powerful to stand up, but more likely it'll become just another anti-Koch doc on in the "Koch Bros Takedowns" genre in your Netflix suggestions.

April 3, 2018 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

It's a hopeful but necessarily bleak account of the 2015 District 3 supervisor's race between Aaron Peskin and the incumbent Julie Christensen.

January 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Convincing evidence that the Koch brothers should be put in prison for the rest of their sorry lives. What is the difference between putting arsenic in someone's food or toxins in their water? Not much, actually.
