  5. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Requiem for the American Dream

    American pundits scream radical at Chomsky but I see a kind of boring old school european social democrat.

  6. SiIencio's rating of the film Requiem for the American Dream

    In a dysfunctional era when political debate is increasingly conveniently suppressed, Capitalism has been immunised against critical thought and the process of normalisation has reached the core of the most abhorrent consequences of the Neo-liberal agenda. One would only expect the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse next. Chomsky gives us here the first critical step to counteract, a concise and clinical diagnosis.

  7. Matilde Ricon Peres's rating of the film Requiem for the American Dream

    Terrifyingly clarifying and frightening portrait of today's western societies.

  8. Jason's rating of the film Requiem for the American Dream

    Chomsky has this laconic way of reaching in and squeezing so's to get you righteously pissed off. That's basically his job, post-reinventing-linguistics. This is merely a competent paint-by-numbers Errol Morris-school documentary rig-up operation. Ten rules of imperial containment and the consolidation of power and money dryly decanted. We basically know all this. It will make you righteously indignant. Good for you.

  9. patchwork's rating of the film Requiem for the American Dream

    Noam Chomsky parla delle falle e delle ingerenze all'interno della struttura del sistema democratico americano (e non solo). I concetti espressi sono abbastanza semplificati e non particolarmente innovativi, però fa sempre un certo effetto sentirli riassumere. la forma del documentario è standardizzata con lo stile del documentario contemporaneo alla "Errol Morris"

  10. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Requiem for the American Dream

    "The reason they call it the American Dream is because you have to be asleep to believe it." (George Carlin). Chomsky cogently explains why the 2016 America is a neoliberal, plutocratic, corporate-driven, anti-union, debt-making monstrosity. And it's getting worse every day. This is not a documentary, this is a horror film.

  11. smndvdcl's rating of the film Requiem for the American Dream

    Up there with 'Manufactured Consent' - thank goodness for libertarian socialists like Noam Chomsky. Tackling inequality and plutonomy is as vital a cause as ever. In an era where social liberals and progressives still tacitly bolster free market capitalism and corporate establishment orthodoxy, cogent conscientious objection needs its platform. Chomsky enables that peaceful dissent against that systemic exploitation.
