"Morgan Spurlock's segment is brisk, funny and enlightening, as is typical of his work. It'll challenge stereotypes and engage viewers."


"Alex Gibney's meditation on sumo wrestling and corporate malfeasance is the most artful and thoughtful of the four segments."


"The most memorable episode is the most provocative: Eugene Jarecki's all-animated 'It's Not Always a Wonderful Life'."


"Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady's final section, which deals with a study into how financial incentives may influence students' schoolwork, is the most rewarding."


"A REVELATORY TRIP into complex, innovative ideas and altered perspectives."


"One of the pleasures is seeing how very different filmmakers approach basically identical material."

-Dan Kois, Village Voice

"In Eugene Jarecki’s segment, as he cuts between ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’, pregnant mothers and Romania, YOUR JAW HANGS OPEN."

-Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
