      Audience Member The greatest family/documentary movie directed by Danny Glover, LOL!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Was this movie really not made by Dinesh D’Sousa? If you are a conspiracy theorist, this is your drivel. Have at it! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 11/22/17 Full Review Audience Member Overall, an excellent documentary on the international arms trade and the devastating affects it has had on human populations. It's emotional appeals combine with insider interviews and historical footage to present a powerful image of corruption, greed, violence and indifference. Thoughtfully composed and skillfully executed. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member 11/5/16 Amazon Video One more documentary to prove the world and the bankers and politicians who run it are morally corrupt. End of story. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Confirming things you suspected, and things that never even occurred to you. Eye-opening and disturbing.

      Nick Schager Village Voice Shadow World sells its argument about the West's criminality not with reporting but through paranoid propaganda. Apr 27, 2016 Full Review Andrew Parker The Gate Essential viewing. Aug 28, 2018 Full Review James Hennessy 4:3 ... a broad, angry condemnation of the neoliberal consensus which elbowed its way through violence and crafty politics into ideological prominence in the 1980s. Rated: Recommended Mar 27, 2017 Full Review Prairie Miller NewsBlaze What do Reagan, Thatcher, Tony Blair and Obama have in common? According to Shadow World, plenty. And having to do with covert roles as brokers for the arms trade in perpetrating endless war, 35,000 lobbyists, and a corporate coup d'etat in slow motion. Jun 4, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews
