Ivory Tower (2014)
Critic Consensus: Although Ivory Tower makes it clear that there isn't enough room in a 90-minute film to tackle spiraling student loan debt, it also serves as a compelling call for deeper investigation.

Critic Reviews for Ivory Tower
What makes "Ivory Tower" interesting is how it looks at not just the debt but the causes behind it, and other problems besetting higher education.
A groaning table of food for thought - almost too much for one movie, though presented with remarkable deftness.
"Ivory Tower" makes a persuasive case that the gravest epidemic that's spreading from college campuses isn't student-loan debt but attention-deficit disorder.
One of the most interesting discoveries is that it's not just students who are in debt. In the spirit of competitiveness, colleges have had to up the ante.
Rossi gives us a survey course when what we need is a seminar; the movie is a useful "What's Wrong With College 101" but the advanced study remains to be done.
Audience Reviews for Ivory Tower
Highlights the real issues most people face with the higher education system currently in place. Recommend to anyone who is going to college or intends to pay for somebody going to college. Must see.
An engaging look at the troubling state of American higher education, how we got here and how we might get out of it. Despite the absence of ready-made answers and a tendency to keep from going for the jugular as much as it could (or should) have, the film nevertheless gives us pause to assess where we're at, what we want out of our educational system and some clues on how to fix it.
