'The Economics of Happiness' features a chorus of voices from six continents calling for systemic economic change. The documentary describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. On the one hand, government and big business continue to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power. At the same time, all around the world people are resisting those policies, demanding a re-regulation of trade and finance - and, far from the old institutions of power, they're starting to forge a very different future. Communities are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm - an economics of localization.

I was really excited with the first 5-10 minutes that presented some interesting statistics. However after that the film focused so much on "Reverend" Billy's performance group that the message of the film is lost. This film had real potential to discuss the affects of commercialization and the "need for stuff" in our society, but fails miserably. My suggestion is to read "Affluenza" for a more insightful perspective on this topic.

The film reflects the suffering of all peoples in war, and does away with the notions of good and evil. I haven't read the account of the true story, and no doubt there are some embellishments, nevertheless, this film had me leaping out of my seat all the way to its teary finale.

A complete curveball of a second half with plot points that make little sense. Keitel & Lewis become buddy-buddy with Clooney? Not buying it. Worth a watch though...

You can really see how this turned into a summer blockbuster and changed how we look at movies, as it builds in such a way as to keep you guessing who might be expendable, where the beast may strike next.Highly recommended.
