From the New York Times:
“Throughout the world, inequality is soaring to new heights, and the wealth of nations, which once provided prosperity to the majority, has gone missing.” So begins the narration for “The Price We Pay,” Harold Crooks’s exacting and disturbing documentary about offshore tax havens for multinational corporations, the growing concentration of money within a narrow minority, and the erosion of social benefits. The ideas in this densely packed but enlightening film can be challenging, but must be heard.”
And here are some other non-U.S. comments on the film, which features us quite heavily.
- “It’s actually one of the most unsettling films I saw all year, and one of the smartest.” STEVE GRAVESTOCK, TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
- “Riveting, lucid, essential.” PARIS MATCH
- “Masterful.” CHRISTOPHE ALIX, LIBÉRATION
- “Worthy of Inside Job.” SOPHIE FAY, LE NOUVEL OBSERVATEUR
- “Rush out and catch The Price We Pay, a stunning, nail-it-to-the –wall Canadian documentary where bankers speak uninhibitedly about tax havens and top celebrity economists let it all hang out … A terrifying picture of an all-powerful market living way above the law.” JEAN-JACQUES RUE, SINÉ MENSUEL
