Audience Reviews for Heist: Who Stole the American Dream?
Mar 19, 2012I saw this at the Cleveland International Film Fest 2012. There are interesting graphics and historical clips, photos and documents to clearly show the economic deregulation that has led to the recent financial crisis. The movie was completed before the Occupy Wall Street movement really began. These protests will surely come to viewers' minds. This doc is likely to rile up emotions.Byron B Super Reviewer
