Generation Zero

Categories: Arts and Culture, History
1hr 30min | 2010
The current economic crisis is not a failure of capitalism, but a failure of culture. GENERATION ZERO explores the cultural roots of the global financial meltdown - beginning with the narcissism of the 1960's, spreading like a virus through the self-indulgent 1990's, and exploding across the world in the present economic cataclysm.

GENERATION ZERO goes beneath the shallow media headlines and talking head sound bites to get to the source of today's economic nightmare. With a cutting edge style and haunting imagery, this must-see documentary will change everything you thought you knew about Wall Street and Washington.

Featuring experts, authors, and pundits from across the political spectrum, GENERATION ZERO exposes the little-told story of how the mindset of the baby boomers sowed the seeds of economic disaster that will be reaped by coming generations.

D-
This is a rightwing propaganda movie. Somehow, by way of assorted misstatements and an incoherent unifying theme about "turnings" (which might have been cobbled together just for this movie), it manages to blame the hippies in the '60 for rich people on Wall Street tanking the US economy in 2007 and beyond. The entire construct is absurd. The very people who financed this travesty (Citizens United) are of the class of people who are the real culprits in this. I would have given it an F, but the production values are pretty good. Don't waste your time.
