(doc) (2008) 91% (0%0 5) PAID NYT Critics' Pick http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/22/movies/22ious.html?_r=1&scp=2&sq=I.O.U.S.A. (2008)&st=cse * * * * "See my profile for the key to this code" * * * * SYNOPSIS: ""I.O.U.S.A." tells the story of America in debt. Faced with key deficits in budget, savings, trade and leadership, increased foreign competition and ballooning financial obligations, the federal government is critically overextended. With the economy already in shambles, 78 million baby boomers are now expecting retirement benefits from their indebted federal government. Weaving together archival footage, economic data and candid interviews with Warren Buffett, Alan Greenspan, Paul O'Neill, Robert Rubin, Alice Rivlin and Paul Volcker, along with David Walker of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation and Robert Bixby of the Concord Coalition, the film offers a vivid and alarming profile of America's financial status." CONSENSUS: "A potent and lithely constructed documentary about America's financial crisis, "I.O.U.S.A." grabs you with figures but holds you with irreverent wit." MOTIVATION FOR ME TO SEE: Well, even with all of PBS' "Frontline" documentaries and Bill Moyer's weekly Friday night offerings, I can't get enough on the subject. [New purchase by HCL]
