A.O. Scott
The New York Times
You can't help feeling that the movie owed its subject - and its audience - a bit more. Full Review
Bill Weber
Slant Magazine
This documentary on the many forms of human debt, though often frustratingly broad, offers a path to balancing civilization's ledger with a hard-nosed brand of altruism. Full Review
Mark Feeney
Boston Globe
Debt is bad, we can all agree, as is its conceptual cousin, greed. It would have been intellectually bracing, though, to have a Gordon Gekko equivalent on hand to argue otherwise. Full Review
Mark Jenkins
Ultimately, this intriguing but scattershot movie turns on the incompatibility of two worldviews - the corporate-financial vs. the environmental-spiritual. Full Review
