We gave it an A

This perceptive and beautifully made documentary starts out as a chronicle of Ralph Nader’s days as a consumer advocate. As it moves forward to his presidential campaigns, the film widens its focus to take in the spreading corporate control of American life, revealing Nader’s fixation on that issue to be as complex in its idealism as his activism was in the ’60s.
