Critic Reviews for Requiem For The American Dream
The film lacks visual ingenuity, but the point isn't to show us something new - it's to tell us something we might not have heard. And what Chomsky says is as unsettling as it is persuasive.
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.
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.
Audience Reviews for Requiem For The American Dream
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.
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.
