Movie Info

PAY 2 PLAY follows filmmaker John Ennis' quest to find a way out from under the Pay 2 Play System, where Politicians reward their donors with even larger sums from the public treasury -- through contracts, tax cuts, and deregulation. Along the way, he journeys through high drama on the Ohio campaign trail, uncovers the secret history of the game Monopoly, and explores the underworld of L.A. street art on a humorous odyssey that reveals how much of a difference one person can make. PAY 2 PLAY: Democracy's High Stakes is the layman's guidebook to taking back our democracy. (C) Official Site

For an advocacy agitprop, the film has researched, sourced and interviewed exhaustively.

Ennis is an optimist at heart, and his belief that one person can make a difference is infectious, if naive.

Serves as a primer, and as a wake up call for those unfamiliar with the Citizen's United decision, gerrymandering, vote suppression, ALEC, the Koch Brothers, and the many other ways money corrupts politics.

Sometimes watching "Pay 2 Play" is like playing "Monopoly" with a six-year-old; they're into the game for a while, but then their mind wanders away to focus on the cat or that they really want some ice cream.

Persuasive and frightening. It's much more illuminating and thorough than Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story.
