The Corporate Coup d'État

The film combines insights from political thinkers and journalists with the experiences of citizens from the nation's heartland, where factory closures and outsourcing have left people hopeless.

"Powerful. A horror film of the most realistic kind."
-Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter

"Wide-ranging. Ever wondered if Werner Herzog has a tattoo? Thanks to Les Blank, he does. And watching him display it during the production of Fitzcarraldo is one of the biggest draws for cinephiles in Alan Govenar's documentary."
-John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter
