Requiem for the American Dream (2015)

2.5/4

Little more than a snazzy video lecture from Noam Chomsky, Requiem for the American Dream ultimately isn’t the best or most worthwhile kind of movie, especially if you’re already familiar with Chomsky’s work. In 75 minutes his ideas are (necessarily) simplified, although this does work as a very effective introduction to his thinking on American economic and social history. That said, his thinking is almost always brilliant and perceptive, and listening to him is always educational. A fine introduction, but certainly not essential.
