Activist Judy Brady sums up this film's unapologetic message: "When I see a pink ribbon," she says during the end credits, "I see evil."

May 31, 2012
Blending expert testimony with emotional appeals from a support group for women diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer, this stinging indictment raises an all-together different call to arms.

The movie's indignation seems justified on at least one point: that the pink-ribbon movement thus far has done more for marketing than for medicine.
May 31, 2012
When every month has its own disease, and each satin ribbon pinned to your chest is in a different color, it's an eye-opener by a splash of cold water to see this documentary questioning the uses of philanthropy for the fight against breast cancer.

A righteously outraged documentary targeting the "warm and fuzzy" iconography of the breast cancer fundraising bureaucracy and its camouflage of corporate priorities.

An alarming look at the profitable industry that has grown up around nonprofit fund raising for breast cancer research. Must see!

Guaranteed to shock anyone who thinks that pink ribbon fund-raising is innocent -- or even useful in either preventing or curing breast cancer.

Pool's documentary provides some cold clarity on a well-advertised if misunderstood disease.
