I want to give Ray Grigg’s I Want Your Money, a new documentary about our national financial debt, runaway deficit spending, impending doom and all that, a fair shake, because its message is (or could be) an important one. I really do. Unfortunately, stupid, jerkily-animated Reagan-lecturing-Obama cartoons is just not a good start, nor is the whole “schools” versus “real life” strain of intellectual attack. Also, by making President Obama the focal point of caricature and by overtly pre-selling itself as controversial (code: the movie “they” don’t want you to see), I Want Your Money tips its hand, and indicates that it almost certainly will not be at all a serious thing, but instead a partisan Molotov cocktail designed to pump sunshine up the skirts of agitated
diabetic mall walkers Tea Partiers. (Forget, even, for a moment, the dizzying reality of lectures on discredited supply-side economics from a talking head from the Heritage Foundation.) For more information on the film, which hits theaters October 15, click here.
