      Sherrie Li Village Voice Though it largely sides with the protesters, the film does not find them faultless. Sep 10, 2013 Full Review Alonso Duralde TheWrap The movie very skillfully goes from the macro (coverage of the various demonstrations and encampments) to the micro (interviews with individuals who suffered in the mortgage crisis, searing examination of the behavior of the police). Sep 6, 2013 Full Review Andy Webster New York Times The variety of physical perspectives lends a vivid you-are-there aspect to this record of the Zuccotti Park protest in New York in 2011, which spawned similar demonstrations ... around the world. Rated: 4/5 Sep 6, 2013 Full Review Daniel Walber Nonfics Compelling as a panorama with historical analysis at heart, rather than an intellectual deconstruction devoid of any visceral proof. Rated: 4/5 Jun 5, 2014 Full Review Jeremy Mathews Paste Magazine It's not definitive, tidy or entirely cohesive, but hey, neither was the movement. Rated: 6.3/10 Sep 19, 2013 Full Review Rob Humanick House Next Door ...never speaking to the diversity and complexity of a social movement and only inadvertently to its often inherent disorganization.

      Audience Member Yes, I was one of those hoping, praying, rooting for the Occupy Movement, a cause that reminded every major city in America -- and 82 countries -- that crucial values most thoughtful people hold dear are being shredded by multi-national corporations. Heartbroken as I was to see that movement dissolve, I was curious to see if "99%" answers the question: Why did that movement fail? Spoiler alert: No, it does not. In fact, it offers no overview of the movement nationally or globally, but focuses only on NYC's protest with a fairly long, sometimes monotonous, string of interview clips. Great cause, weak flick.
