  1. msmichel's rating of the film Payback

    Baichwal attempts to translate the ideas from an essay by Margaret Atwood into an examination of debt; both financial and personal and quite frankly fails miserably. Over=reaching to say the least as it tries to equate blood feuds, oil spills, migrant workers in Florida, prisoners and even Conrad Black into its examination. Atwood's concepts are sound but in trying to illustrate them Baichwal loses the message.

  2. sami's rating of the film Payback

    The concept of debt is a great subject to reflect on, with such wide and tentacular scope. Sadly this documentary feels like a rather poor companion piece to what I hope is a better book by Margaret Atwood. Pity.
