Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Requiem for the American Dream is a documentary that showcases the ideas of acclaimed academic Noam Chomsky, who explains how the global economic system has tilted far in favor of the rich and powerful. In a series of extensive interviews, Chomsky walks viewers through his theories, explaining how the world has become more and more unequal and why current conditions suggest than significant change is unlikely in the near future. There's nothing upsetting other than old news footage of people being forcibly subdued during riots and protests, but some of the ideas are a bit academic/advanced and likely won't be very entertaining to younger viewers.
Some sequences feature news footage of protests and riots, with people being attacked by police officers using fire hoses, tear gas, nightsticks, and other weapons designed to subdue crowds.
All viewers may not agree with him, but Chomsky's message is that unchecked, under-regulated capitalism is threatening the fabric of society, with the rich and powerful using their wealth and influence to become even more so, at the expense of the poor.
