Critic Reviews for Murder By Proxy: How America Went Postal

All Critics (1)

A doc about workplace violence and murders not so random after all, with a focus on the disturbing trend linked to the war on unions. And what it all has to do with Reagan, privatization, Social Darwinism, consumerism, and the Postal Reorganization Act.

Audience Reviews for Murder By Proxy: How America Went Postal

The narrative of this movie is that work place violence is a result of being mistreated at work. People interviewed were sympathetic of the of the killers and not the victims. I hated this documentary.
