In the world of documentaries the subject matter is often in the realm of the uncovered, the unexplored. It would be difficult to view the Occupy movement with such a lens due to the consistently favorable media coverage given. Instead, it seems necessary to get down to what really truly happened when an occupy camp came to town.
Was it truly a peaceful endeavor marked by drum circles and makeshift libraries, with folks sharing tents and ideals to improve our country and draw attention to the wrongheaded activities of the banking conglomerate against Americans? As this documentary shows in sometimes gruesome detail: of course not. In one scene the protesters actually admit that they are paid SEIU shills, that have no idea why they have assembled other than to earn the princely sum of $60. So much for grassroots activism on the left.
Occupy Unmasked goes all in to show not just the disgusting underbelly of the movement, but it’s roots in Marxism, Communism and Collectivism. The organization behind the madness, and the complete failure on the part of the mainstream media in covering all aspects of the violence and hatred that was regularly on display wherever an Occupy camp sprang up and took root.
