Commanding Heights espouses Hayek's ideas and argues for greater market freedom. It does so very poignantly, captivating the audience. A perfectly balanced approach to the ideological fights of the 20th century would result in nothing more than a chronology of events.
Wherever one lies on the political spectrum, Commanding Heights will definitely be a worthy watch. It outlines the positive and negative aspects of free markets and planned economies with a twist in favor of the latter. CH is an ideal watch for someone who asks himself "Why?" and wants to know more, possibly investigating the events mentioned in CH further.
I am looking forward to the production of a pro-Keynesian documentary of the same caliber, so it can be offered with CH as two sides of the same argument.
