Oddly though the premise is honorable the Americans actually doing the project are proving that they know nothing about what their own country is doing. One thinks that this project will fall on deaf ears and that it will change nothing, as Americans are not in control of their own country or destiny. The pseudo pretense of freedom and wealth are an illusion is well portrayed. Nibbles: Curry and Rice.

A lot of what was said in this movie irritated me to no end. Most of the people interviewed are barflies and people living on the streets or working behind some sandwich shop, who are completely ignorant about world affairs and parrot back whatever the state media or ruling party in their own country has manipulated them into believing. Granted, I think most of the footage was taken before General Petraeus and President Obama changed the scenery in a major way, but even so, the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan at that point was completely misunderstood and misconstrued. There is a huge difference between empire-building and regime change, and everyone assumed that we had undertaken the former. The latter is a humanitarian crusade and a thankless burden.

A really great documentary. I must say I shed a tear at the end. Please open your heart and mind to other cultures and countries.

Excellent documentary about looking at views toward the U.S. by the world in an honest, no holds-barred manner. Some cinematography issues, but great film.

Good, clear, not too politically entwined. Didn't have all the qualities I expected, but it did make me think more about becoming more developed as a global citizen.
