Generation Wealth Rated 18

Generation Wealth

Dir. Lauren Greenfield. USA, 2018. 1h 46m. Starring Lauren Greenfield, Bret Easton Ellis, Sheldon Greenfield, Patricia Greenfield, G-Mo, Florian Homm, Chris Hedges, Limo Bob.

A provocative documentary about the corrupted American Dream, chronicling the human costs of late-stage capitalism, materialism, narcissism, and greed. Award-winning director Lauren Greenfield (Queen of Versailles) captures a portrait of a materialistic, image-obsessed culture.

‘Greenfield makes a compelling argument for a society on the brink of precipitous decline, choosing to interpret the runaway vanity and rampant materialism observed in her own work as harbingers of our imminent destruction.’ Peter Debruge, Variety

‘Through her dedication to other people's lives, and with such open-book storytelling of her own, Greenfield is able to make a stunningly deeply resonant documentary about notions as seemingly obvious as the value of love over wealth itself.’ Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com
