The maker of the movie emails to say that the Dish's link gave a false impression of the film. Since I haven't seen it myself, I'll try and see a screening when one comes up in DC and report back. But the Daily Beast's John Avlon liked it:
There have been highlights to balance out the lowlights at the Tea Party Convention. For all the Obama Derangement Syndrome evidenced, the spark of the movement was a demand to return to fiscal responsibility. These roots were well represented by a special screening of a new documentary about the roots of the fiscal crisis and the reckoning still to come, called Generation Zero. Written and directed by Stephen K. Bannon (Titus) and produced by the now infamous Citizens United, it is not primarily a partisan polemicinstead it is a smart and comprehensible look at the results of fiscal irresponsibility, featuring commentary from Amity Shlaes, Shelby Steele, Victor Davis Hanson, and Newt Gingrich, among others. It can be difficult to capture the outrage of overspending or to humanize the long-term costsbut Generation Zero succeeds in doing it.
