What happens when those who live fast don't die young.

It is not about the today's truly wealthy, which is a missed opportunity.

Despite its focus on materialism, Generation Wealth ends up as a tribute to loved ones, who bring richness to life that money cannot.

Greenfield's takeaway -- money doesn't buy happiness, family is important, status is illusory -- feels too pat. It also ignores a larger point: The people here who claim not to want money are the people who've had it and lost it.

Whilst it suffers from a lack of focus at times, it's a well-made and thought-provoking insight into our strange new world.

By being both sprawling and personal, Greenfield forces us to look at how we are all complicit in this culture that prizes wealth.

Maybe society is just so afflicted with its wealth sickness that looking at all the symptoms of the illness makes it impossible to craft a compelling diagnosis of how the infection started and spread.

Greenfield's film is all over the place, and is more stream of consciousness than informative or even entertaining.
August 25, 2018
Generation Wealth falls victim to the very thing that it is attempting to critique, namely excess. Quite simply, there is too much stuff in here.
August 22, 2018
Bleak and compelling viewing.
August 20, 2018
Generation Wealth feels incomplete and haunted.
August 16, 2018
A deeply personal work with a compelling first-person narrative in which Greenfield reflects on her career photographing the excessively and garishly wealthy.

Lauren Greenfield's energetic storytelling about America's dirty little secret will definitely keep audiences intrigued and fascinated during the entire runtime.

It may entice with opulence and riches, but in the end, "Wealth" didn't buy my love.
August 5, 2018
Unfocused, lazy and poorly-edited documentary filled with too much navel-gazing. It leaves you feeling unenlightened and underwhelmed
