Reich is a natural teacher of complex concepts: The film doesn't feel like homework.
October 31, 2013
Inequality for All is intelligent, persuasive and accessible, a gentle but urgent clarion call to action.
October 4, 2013
Overall, this film is enlightening, entertaining and seriously alarming.

This documentary would be a rousing David and Goliath story even if its hero weren't the diminutive Robert B. Reich.
September 27, 2013
That a documentary about economics could be so personally emotional and affecting is remarkable. And to learn from Reich in this film, as his students at Berkeley do, is a treat and a privilege.

Robert Reich, a secretary of labor under President Clinton, leads us through a sharp-eyed essay-meditation on the rising trend of income inequality.
September 27, 2013
Reich manages to infuse this enlightening/infuriating documentary on extreme income disparity in the United States, and the corollary marginalization of the middle class, with an optimistic spirit. One that may or may not be justified.
September 27, 2013
Any politician hoping to redistribute America's wealth should screen it before every stump speech.
September 27, 2013
It's unseemly, I know, to praise a movie like this for the stand-up-comic affability of its host. But Reich's engagingness also gives credence to the seriousness of his message.
September 27, 2013
Reich is no condescending intellectual. He has no contempt for people of the opposite point of view. He even has nice things to say about Bill O'Reilly.
September 27, 2013
Reich is funny, poignant, passionate.
September 27, 2013
A cinematic listicle of misleading economic talking points.
September 27, 2013
If you like your movie stars to be smart, engaging, well-spoken, self-deprecating and Danny DeVito-size, you couldn't do much better than this leading authority on economics who served under presidents Ford, Carter and Clinton.
September 26, 2013
Mr. Reich ties together his talking points with a reasonable-sounding analysis and an unassuming warmth sometimes absent from documentaries charting America's economic woes.
September 26, 2013
The film is as much about Reich as income inequality, a topic he has written and talked about for decades. You'll learn why he's 4 feet 10.5 inches tall and why he became active in social politics.

If you're looking for a streamlined explanation for the mess the U.S. economy's in, and how we might get out, it's as good a place to start as any.
September 26, 2013
This lively film takes a "greatest-hits" approach to Reich, who fears that we're headed for another financial debacle if we don't take a more serious approach to taxes and education.
September 26, 2013
Smart, funny and articulate, Robert Reich is the university professor we all wish we'd had. He's so accessible and entertaining he takes a subject that sounds soporific and makes it come alive like you wouldn't believe in "Inequality for All."
September 26, 2013
Presents Reich's position by patching together lectures from his "Wealth & Poverty" course at the University of California, Berkeley.
Top Critic
September 26, 2013
Animated charts and graphs, on-the-road interludes and humorous asides designed to show that the speaker isn't too dislikably severe about the crisis that threatens Life As We Know It.
