Critic Reviews for Heist: Who Stole the American Dream?

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (1)

  • Ultimately reframing the advancement of free market ideology of the last four decades as class warfare against the have-nots, the documentary manages to widen its scope without losing its narrative thread.

    August 28, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Though myriad aspects of its story have already been probed in greater depth elsewhere, Frances Causey and Donald Goldmacher's Heist is well timed as a one-stop summary of reasons for ordinary Americans to be furious at our financial systems.

  • The film provides a crisp, succinct answer to a question that nags most Americans: What the hell happened?

    March 3, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • [It] has the virtue of taking the long view of a crisis that recent films like "Inside Job" and "Too Big to Fail" have only sketchily explored. It makes a strong case that government regulation of business is essential for democracy to flourish.

    March 1, 2012 | Rating: 3/5
  • Like its title, Heist: Who Stole the American Dream? purports to ask a question but is only interested in forwarding its predictable agitprop answer.

    February 28, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Heist is a cinematic gut punch, to be sure, but not one entirely devoid of hope.

Audience Reviews for Heist: Who Stole the American Dream?

  • Mar 19, 2012
    I 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.
