There's not a dull or dry moment in Reed's briskly paced film about the secret assault on the American electoral and judicial process by corporations whose agenda is nothing less than the dismantling of government itself.

A densely packed documentary that earnestly and obsessively addresses campaign finance reform, its history and vital importance.
