    As documentaries go, this presents a pretty accurate portrayal of what was going on, AT THE TIME, why the movement came into being, the inspiration we felt, etc. (I was there).
    But that was two years ago; and the film could have been far more valuable if it included some discussion of why it fell apart; that is, besides the police brutality.
    And yes, it showed some of the brutality, but the significance of the brutal shutdown was not explored: the state could not tolerate even the essence of the OCCUPY tactic: peacefully taking a tiny portion of public space in order to have a new discussion, (a radical tactic, precisely because it’s non-violent).
    But by that time, most of the general public had lost interest in the movement because, (in general) the encampments had failed to reach out beyond their borders with some clear demands.
    And there were reasons for this.
    The general assemblies, the human mic, etc. were rather brilliant responses to hierarchic power; but they also had serious problems that needed to be overcome.
    Without clear leadership/focus, the inspiration that so many initially felt began to dissipate; and then the hangers-on, the battered and broken folk who weren’t prepared to do the work began to drag the rest of us down.

    One could go on talking ’bout it for hours, of course; but sadly, it’s no longer relevant; and I think the film represents a tendency on ‘the left’ these days, (hate to use left/right terms, but there’s no question as to the movements general character): instead of openly (and constructively) talking about the weaknesses, the left today tends to fall back on its points of inspiration, (to keep ourselves going); when, this is actually an expression of weakness, insecurity, and gets us nowhere.

    OCCUPY, as a tactic, is not dead, (witness Egypt in 2013, Turkey etc); and it will rise again in America, (activists are still doing stuff on a smaller scale); but unless we take the time to have an open, honest discussion about the challenges facing our ORGANIZED RESISTANCE, then we will not be prepared to take the revo to the next level, when once again, deteriorating circumstances drives a mass movement into the streets.
