Lauren Greenfield, director of Queen of Versailles, is back with a "chilling" look at the current state of American Empire. This documentary paints a portrait of a materialistic, image-obsessed culture, arguably on the brink of decline.
Simultaneously personal journey and historical essay, the film bears witness to the global boom-bust economy, the corrupted American Dream, and the human costs of late stage capitalism, narcissism, and greed. For those who have followed Greenfield's career from LA photojournalist to renowned documentarian, this is a true, troubling culmination of all her previous studies.
