Time Out says
Inevitably, some sections fare better than others. Alex Gibney’s look at corruption in sumo wrestling and its metaphorical correlation with the murky depths of the markets proves the meatiest offering, while Morgan Spurlock’s investigation of the black-white cultural-economic divide in naming kids is the lightest and most amusing. By contrast, the remaining items seem rather fuzzier in execution. Although the various directors use graphics and animation to jazz up the visuals to a pleasing degree, none of this is much more incisive than anything you’d see on, say, the average ‘Newsnight’, while the absence of a strong connecting thread does weaken its claims on your attention.
