What are people saying?

  • MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film The Divide

    An incredibly shallow, cursory, unfocused documentary for such an important topic. I recommend The Price We Pay or Requiem for the American Dream instead. Anything by Adam Curtis (e.g. Century of the Self). The Divide is a wasted opportunity and does not any justice to its source material, Richard G Wilkinson and Kate Pickett’s book The Spirit Level: Why More Equal Societies Almost Always Do Better.
