What to know

critics consensus

This visual history of the growing obsession with wealth uses first-person interviews in Los Angeles, Moscow, Dubai, China and around the world to bear witness to the global boom-and-bust economy and document its complicated consequences.

Critic Reviews for Generation Wealth

All Critics (94) | Top Critics (35) | Fresh (43) | Rotten (51)

  • What we get is a film that is most fun when observing the cautionary lifestyles of the once-rich and adjacent-to-famous, but most insightful when it pulls outs of the fast lane and Greenfield's eye turns inward on her own life.

  • Greenfield's film is all over the place, and is more stream of consciousness than informative or even entertaining.

    August 26, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Bleak and compelling viewing.

    August 22, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Scattered and self-indulgent, a career retrospective in search of a coherent theme.

    August 3, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • The moral lesson of "spend more time with loved ones" is pretty weak sauce if I'm being honest: It's nothing more than an unheeded warning sign on the edge of the diamond-encrusted road straight to ruin.

    August 2, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Greenfield's titillating survey of America's grossest obsessions, from plastic surgery to porn, only flirts with economic and social context, mainly limiting itself to observation and personalization.
