excellent movie, heavy subject, shows the corruption and ruthless greed of the rich and powerful.

Outstanding documentary. America in microcosm, as before long, our economy, our civic and public lives, will look like theirs;we are well on our way, obvious to anyone with their eyes even halfway open! Not one promising leader in sight, either. All cut of the same shoddy cloth.
