DVD - Collapse
Chris Smith is known for documentaries like American Movie and The Yes Men, and his newest piece, Collapse, is another victory for him. The doc is primarily an interview with independent writer/investigator/instigator Michael Ruppert, who predicted the financial collapse of 2008/2009 years before it happened. Ruppert goes into detail about the factors that caused him to get to the conclusion he eventually came too, and then discusses Ruppert's predictions for the future, all of which seem dangerously plausible. Collapse is a frightening, but necessary, piece of journalism that, if more people watched, could cause a serious ripple effect, and maybe mobilize people into action to set this world back on track to a brighter future.
