I agree with everything said in this film. I really enjoyed the incorporation of the audio clips alongside the narrator.

That being said, I felt that this film could have used a little more...anything. Yes, things are bad in America. Consumerism is destroying us and hurting the rest of the world. Corporations are royally screwing us all. But all this film does is whine. I understand it's kind of a call for change through creativity, but I just felt it needed something more to really be truly meaningful.

Also, the whole bunny mask thing was just weird. What the heck? I guess it's sort of your "thing", but it's still distracting from your point.

Also, if that big house that literally has a white picket fence and pristine lawn is yours then you're sort of discrediting yourself standing next to it in a film like this. Clearly the consumerism isn't hurting you, only benefiting you.

Very poignant film. Thank you, I loved it. More people ought to get their head out of the cloud and realise the points you make in this film!

This is a great commentary about American society and it's consumerist/capitalist needs. Awesome film, thanks!
