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

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

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

What we get is a film that is most fun when observing the cautionary lifestyles of the once-rich and adjacent-to-famous, but most insightful when it pulls outs of the fast lane and Greenfield's eye turns inward on her own life.

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 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.

While the pieces don't always fit together, they're often interesting on their own, especially as subjects now older and wiser reflect on their hedonistic days.
August 1, 2018
Generation Wealth, Greenfield's latest, feels like her anti-capitalist magnum opus, a natural extrapolation of the themes of a lifetime's work.

In fact, interviewing her subjects after their bubbles burst says the most in Greenfield's taut documentary about Generation Wealth. It is painful and unsparing and very revealing.

Generation Wealth may have taken the better part of a decade to complete but photographer/filmmaker Lauren Greenfield's hard work is worth it in the end.

Generation Wealth is awash in decadent and depraved images of our era that will stick with you.

But in the end there is a lack of unity, a lack of sharp observation, an appropriate vision and a conclusion in which we see what the proposal and vision of the filmmaker is. [Full review in Spanish]

Generation Wealth is a bit about money's impact on Generation X and their offspring, but it resonates thanks to a more micro, intimate examination of our culture.
July 31, 2018
At times the whole film threatens to turn into a visual stream of consciousness exercise... That Generation Wealth remains watchable is down to the filmmaker's skills with the camera and her confidence around her participants.
July 29, 2018
It's both bruising and beautiful, sorrowful and sensational, all whilst being a savage exploration of humanity's insatiable nature.
July 25, 2018
If "Generation Wealth" has a message that empty acquisitiveness is bad, it delivers it, like the rest of her work, by showing, not telling.
July 23, 2018
Admirably...here the US photographer and director weaves herself into the frame in order to try to bring context to a subject that can seem to have no end.
July 23, 2018
Generation Wealth dives beneath the surface in its - pointed, albeit frequently shallow - examination of the superficiality of overindulgence, becoming a group therapy session we could all benefit from witnessing.
