It is not about the today's truly wealthy, which is a missed opportunity.
November 13, 2018
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.

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.
October 14, 2018
The film is not so much a documentary about how greed and money are destroying society as it is an autobiographical look at Greenfield's obsession with the lifestyles of the rich and the famous.

The degree of difficulty here is off the charts, and the wildly uneven results only make the achievement of Kirsten Johnson's Cameraperson all the more impressive.
August 30, 2018
But as in so much of this sprawling meditation-an odd mix where the heinously crass often outweighs the authentically beautiful-deep analysis is lacking.
August 26, 2018
Greenfield's film is all over the place, and is more stream of consciousness than informative or even entertaining.

Generation Wealth feels incomplete and haunted.

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

Unfortunately, as personal as she gets here, she fails to tie everything together into a cohesive thesis
August 3, 2018
Scattered and self-indulgent, a career retrospective in search of a coherent theme.
August 3, 2018
Greenfield's argument widens so far she loses focus.
August 3, 2018
[T]he movie's simple answers don't justify its exhausting study of excess.
August 2, 2018
Greenfield's depiction of the uber-materialism of today's world is compelling, if rather obvious, but her attempt to extrapolate from that portrait of unfettered excess to a broader thesis about responsibility to family feels simplistic.
August 2, 2018
The moral lesson of "spend more time with loved ones" is pretty weak sauce if I'm being honest: It's nothing more than an unheeded warning sign on the edge of the diamond-encrusted road straight to ruin.
August 2, 2018
Some of the testimony is laughably unreliable.
August 1, 2018
Greenfield fails to offer an indictment of the systems that allow for the unchecked accumulation of wealth. Instead we get a center-liberal call for a return to family and nature, as if individual actions and attitudes are responsible for inequality.
July 27, 2018
Greenfield's titillating survey of America's grossest obsessions, from plastic surgery to porn, only flirts with economic and social context, mainly limiting itself to observation and personalization.
