Critics have hailed Heist: Who Stole The American Dream?:
- HEIST..."has the virtue of taking the long view of a crisis that recent films like Inside Job and Too Big to Fail have only sketchily explored. It makes a strong case that government regulation of business is essential for democracy to flourish."
—Stephen Holden, New York Times
"… HEIST is well timed as a one-stop summary of reasons for ordinary Americans to be furious at our financial systems."
—Dennis Harvey, Variety
"HEIST earnestly paints the picture of a democracy slowly and methodically being nudged toward oligarchy with help from all sides."
—Mindy Farabee, LA Times
The event will feature SnagFilms' all new Snag Social Screening (TM) technology, which enables online viewers to watch the film simultaneously and connect directly with each other, the filmmakers and other subject experts via a live, post-screening discussion.
This premiere event is part of SnagFilms' exclusive "Snag the Vote" online film festival and election hub, running through election day, featuring over 100 documentaries chosen to illuminate ten key issues defining the 2013 Presidential election.
