In this documentary, recently released on DVD, Noam Chomsky gives an overview of the miasma of the current political, sociological and economic situation of the United States. Filmed over the course of four years, Requiem for The American Dream shows Chomsky detailing in 10 points his sweeping understanding of the seemingly intractable inequities and lack of a robust democracy we find in our society.
The filmmakers ensured that this would not be just another talking head discourse: It is both innovatively animated and trenchantly informative, an incisive dissection of the disastrous impact of the concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a few.
