All Critics (25) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (23) | Rotten (2)

  • As one expects, Chomsky again proves to know more about his targets than they seem to know about themselves, calling on bits of history that damn not only the business-boosting right wing, but those on the supposed left side of American politics.

  • A very useful addition to public discourse at any time. But it's particularly so during this election year ...

  • The film isn't necessarily pegged to the upcoming election per se, but the logic presented within helps make sense of current affairs.

    March 11, 2016 | Full Review…
  • This feature by Peter Hutchison, Kelly Nyks, and Jared P. Scott presents a cogent and incisive lesson in how the superwealthy control the federal government.

    March 10, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Few will agree with every word spoken, but Chomsky's vision of history is worth encountering and considering.

    March 2, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • In large part because Chomsky is a very good speaker with a wealth of incisive ideas to share, the result is a film that feels less like a lecture than a provocative X-ray of current American political realities.

Audience Reviews for Requiem For The American Dream

  • May 18, 2016
    It doesn't cover groundbreaking territory for those who are acquainted with Noam Chomsky's thoughts and ideas or have read enough to know everything he says, but it is always fascinating to see him lay out with such clarity the ten principles of concentration of wealth and power.

    In a return to the screen from Manufactured Consent, we find Chomsky debating the same ideas he always has. Not that that is a bad thing.
