I enjoyed this film. It was very compelling. All profiles are of damaged people with a lot of regret. Including the film maker, who confesses her feelings of abandonment by her own mother as a child, only to repeat the cycle herself...

Film quotes or comments:1. Roman, Egyptian and many other societies accrue their greatest wealth at the moment they face death.2. The excesses of our culture: No matter how much you have you still want more.3. Narcissism is full-blown in our culture now; more so since the '70s or '80s.4. We are living in an end-of-the-world quality, a kind of ultra-decadence.5. In the '70s we shifted from an empire of production, to an empire of consumption.6. Reagan cut the tax rates by 25% with the emphasis now on wealth. (Note: Trump in doing the same thing is leading us into a similar Reagan styled explosion in the national deficit & debt.)7. Greed, for the lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works.8. Harvard Business School does not teach you to be a good person, but to rule the world.9. You buy your first Vuitton bag; everybody now bows to your bag. Then you say to yourself, "What next?" Well, spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on more designer ($20,000+ each) bags. Does that say something about their mental health?10. TV promotes a fictitious lifestyle (remember Paris H.) which fuels a sense of inadequacy in us. We probably know the names of the Kardashians better than our own neighbors.11. Obsessed w/building big houses, etc. in some cases w/24-carat gold toilets. In our director's previous doc "The Queen of Versailles" the Siegels who like Trump made billions, in part from land deals (they even appear in an event backing him), decide to build the biggest single family house (20+ bathrooms, 20+ car garage) in America. Up for auction (Nov. 15, '18), shows us personal shallowness of such consumptive pursuits.12. Girls, at a very young age, learn that their bodies have currency. Ex. "Toddlers & Tiaras".13. We're evolving into a pornified culture. Ex. Exercise classes that teach cardio striptease w/poles.14. Unregulated capitalism does what it is designed to to, commodify everything. Human beings become commodities that you exploit for profit.
I think this documentary is one of the best I have seen in the last decade! An anthropological take on the societal "norms" of consumerism in the world today, and the psychological effects this can have on families and individuals. I would highly recommend this movie! I have noticed some of the bad reviews about this documentary wandering...not true! Make sure you watch until the end, and it comes together very nicely.
