The only thing worse than the movie are the user comments
Many reviewers love this movie and compare it favorably to typical mainstream movies. But this movie is worse because of the pretensions. The characters are as one dimensional as in die hard 2, and the polemics as simplistic as the typical hollywood plot.

The fact is that politics turn art into propoganda, and this movie is nothing more than a sophomoric essay. I am not even saying that my politics differ.(yeah, they do) I would have enjoyed a movie showing the lives of those we too often treat as invisible and the injustices they face. And I would have been moved and affected by such a movie.

But the audience manipulation is so transparent that by the end I was cheering for the dickhead managers, if only to rebel against a director trying to tell me how to think.

If one is going to make a "message" movie, make it balanced, or at least subtle. Better yet, show the pure unadulterated truth on the screen, and the message will come out by itself. My money would be better spent on "another teen movie" how the hell was this movie nominated at cannes i will never know
