Critic Reviews for Power Trip
Surprisingly funny, enlightening and informative. And watchable.
Highlights the disparity between the people and their exorbitant bills, but it's also a brief history of modern Georgia, a country whose citizens are frequently failed by their government.
Devlin's movie deals with transition and displacement in the former Soviet Union. It introduces us to a highly committed international work force and to disgruntled Georgians. The movie also immerses us in a conflict that appears irreconcilable.
An arresting and fascinating story that's ultimately not only about politics and business, but also about the human condition itself.
Through the ever-hopeful eyes of Lewis, the story unfolds in unexpected directions, emerging as both a portrait of a changing Georgia and a study of power.
An instructive account of the perils of attempting to privatize decrepit public utilities in countries with stagnant economies.
Audience Reviews for Power Trip
As far as documentaries go, this one is first rate. I say so, because it really does represent a full spectrum of viewpoints, information, and history without making it a one-sided issue. I was especially surprised at how little I knew about Georgian political history, as well as the current issues faced by this tiny former Soviet nation. Very well done, certainly worth the education:)
If you actually want to learn something while watching a movie, this could be a good pick for you. --I found it enlightening to see inside the reality of a former Soviet Republic, Gerogia (not actually Russia..Sorry about that, but I ran out of space in my title block.) --This is a documentary showing the obstacles to progress and industrial privatisation in the former Soviet Union states. --The U.S. based global power conglomerate that is trying to bring a self-sustaining modern power system to the state of Georgia has many obstacles, from nepotistic corruption, to the communist era mindsets of the populace. This movie can be very informative about the reality of Soviets lives, in the modern era. It also is a saddening story about the corruption that ultimately pervades the soviet governments and restrains the Soviet people from greater progress in the struggle to have a better life. Tim
