Generation Wealth

Description
For the past 25 years acclaimed photographer and filmmaker Lauren Greenfield (TheQueen of Versailles, Thin, kids+money, #likeagirl) has travelled the world, documenting with ethnographic precision and an artist's sensitivity a vast range of cultural movements and moments. Yet, after so much seeking and searching, she realized that much of her work pointed at one uniting phenomenon: wealth culture. With her new film, Generation Wealth, she puts the pieces of her life's work together for in an incendiary investigation into the pathologies that have created the richest society the world has ever seen. Spanning consumerism, beauty, gender, body commodification, aging and more, Greenfield has created a comprehensive cautionary tale about a culture heading straight for the cliff's edge. Generation Wealth, simultaneously a deeply personal journey, rigorous historical essay, and raucously entertaining expose, bears witness to the global boom-bust economy, the corrupted American Dream and the human costs of capitalism, narcissism and greed.

The film is not so much a documentary about how greed and money are destroying society as it is an autobiographical look at Greenfield's obsession with the lifestyles of the rich and the famous.

Greenfield's film is all over the place, and is more stream of consciousness than informative or even entertaining.

"Generation Wealth" feels like it's all over the place, and that, if most of its subjects are lacking in depth, the movie itself is open to the same criticism.

Generation Wealth feels incomplete and haunted.

The degree of difficulty here is off the charts, and the wildly uneven results only make the achievement of Kirsten Johnson's Cameraperson all the more impressive.

Generation Wealth falls victim to the very thing that it is attempting to critique, namely excess. Quite simply, there is too much stuff in here.

Scattered and self-indulgent, a career retrospective in search of a coherent theme.

But as in so much of this sprawling meditation-an odd mix where the heinously crass often outweighs the authentically beautiful-deep analysis is lacking.

If "Generation Wealth" has a message that empty acquisitiveness is bad, it delivers it, like the rest of her work, by showing, not telling.

Despite having been a renowned photographer for more than a quarter-century, Greenfield here seems to have lost her focus.

Greenfield's titillating survey of America's grossest obsessions, from plastic surgery to porn, only flirts with economic and social context, mainly limiting itself to observation and personalization.
