Whenever I watch a documentary I am looking for some information. This documentary barely had any. All the answers from the donors were predictable and watered down. There was no new information besides the brief overview of public finance and "Citizens United". I found myself getting bored about 20 mins in with the same answers from everyone. There was no fact checking on whether the donors actually received benefits. Overall this film was mediocre at best, but more likely just sub-par.

Every American needs to watch this film.

This was all over the place and never really had a flow or got to a conclusion of anything other than "money is bad". Great, we already knew that.

This was a very good Documentary that really shows you what all average American's are up against. One of the most disturbing things to me was the "Dark Money" that one of these wealthy Billionaires talks about. This is the money being funnelled in back channels by the billions and those who are contributing or donating do not have to disclose ANY of that money that they give to various groups and political candidates. Pelosi does a very good job of asking direct hard questions, and she doesn't let the interviewees wiggle out of answering her questions. You can see how many who she interviews try to use words and phrases that don't sound like what we all know is downright political bribing, and getting their back room deals done when they call on a candidate once they need that favor or favors cashed in. CU (Citizens United) has pretty much eroded our democracy down to a plutocracy giving Americans the illusion that they actually affect change through their votes. In reality, we really can't when the deck is stacked against us like this.

They don't uncover what they were hoping for and by the end nothing new is learned. Spoiler large corporations have political influence... There I saved you 2 hours.

Even the big individual donors pail in comparison to the big corporate dark money which is purely legalized bribery special interest.
