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.
How did the government respond? How did American in the Heartland respond? Can they be more effective next time? Will there be a next time? Who were the major players and how did they find a way to come together and organize "chaos" in multiple cities in the US at the same time?
This should be a required piece to watch in every history class in the US!
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.
It was nothing of the sort. It was created and orchestrated by professionals. Professional what? Yeah, professional union bosses and professional communists. I attended high school from 1965 through 1970. I was used to thinking that protests were for a cause and an issue. I was not used to thinking that protests were used to destroy things.
I grew up thinking that protests were about young people who were afraid of dying in Vietnam. That's something that you can protest about. I was drafted in June of 1972. By the time I was out of Basic Combat Training at Fort Ord, CA, Nixon had ended the war. Whew! But that didn't mean that I was blind to those who did not want to stand up for FREEDOM. Freedom isn't something that is easy for people to understand. Especially if you grew up in a nurturing and loving family who took care of your every need. I grew up in a violent household with parents who routinely beat me. "Freedom" was not just a nice sounding word to me. I wanted it, badly.
When I found out that the "occupy" movement was being run by union bosses and rich kids with fully paid annuities and trust funds, I immediately realized this was not a "1960s" protest.
