The problem is that it feels too repetitive and low on information to fill the time limit. If this had been a 30 minute special then it would have been captivating, yet after an hour you can only watch so much footage of the same thing happening before you begin to tune out. I had to struggle to pay attention and keep myself invested in what was happening. The first half hour is great and looks at some of the people and incidents that the media didn't cover; after that there's not much that really happens and ultimately it makes the film less effective. The pacing and flow were simply too jumpy to make the experience appear seamless, even though the information presented is quite good in and of itself.
Regardless of how you feel about the movement, this is certainly worth looking into. I just wish it had been more coherent and featured more information for the last 45 minutes.
If you're an OWS supporter who hasn't seen the movie - like the two people who gave the movie one star CLEARLY are! - you need to see it before you make up your mind and reject it. I have a feeling you'd be singing a different tune.
I was present at a number of radical protests in the 1960s, including one where a university building was burned and a person was killed. This reminds me of that period -- the same intensity of emotion, radical rhetoric and mutually reinforcing actors in play. When you contrast this to a Tea Party meeting, with its music, flags and Uncle Sam suits, you can see the kind of America each of them wants. I marked it down one star because it does have a strong detectable bias, although that's in the nature of films like this.
If you want to understand this movement, you need to have this film and contrast it with sympathetic accounts of Occupy. There's a tendency to judge a movement in terms of what it says about itself and that is never complete. Unless you consider adversarial perspectives as well, you are not even close to being fully informed. This film provides that.
