The faux press conferences and perverse inventions (SurvivaBall, anyone?) that are included here highlight corporate greed and governmental shortsightedness as shrewdly as ever.
As usual, the mood is genial and the anticorporate politics refreshingly blunt.
Although this latest documentary is, in large part, simply more of the same stuff we saw in the earlier films, there's also a lot of background material here about Servin and Vamos that makes this outing a bit more interesting.
Who said that a political film can't be sweet, too? In its grandest triumph, "The Yes Men Are Revolting" is an activist doc inspired by more than just its topical issues.
"The Yes Men Are Revolting," their third film, has a personal poignancy that is missing in the forerunners, "The Yes Men" (2003) and "The Yes Men Fix the World" (2009).
Laughing at the apocalypse is hard work.
"The Yes Men Are Revolting" is an entertaining ride through the past few years, but for all its exuberance, a deep gloom remains.
Please do not think that I am resorting to a banal cliché when I say that you do not want to miss it.
While the subject matter remains intriguing, The Yes Men deserve a better and more intimate documentary than they have made about themselves.
For the most part it revels in the Yes Men's chutzpah. You will, too.
Are they burned out or will they manage to capitalize on a new generation of activists to train?. . . This informative and entertaining joint portrait is encouraging start.
Nix and the Yes Men have mostly brought a wry joy to the doom-filled genre of climate change nonfiction, and for that they should be commended.
