"A thought-provoking documentary"
British Film Institute
"Timely. Urgently asks who are cities for, who’s going to live in them, and how will they function when only the rich are there?”
"An elegantly structured odyssey that covers thousands of miles, while never losing sight of the ordinary human beings behind the money and the statistics."
The Arts Desk
"Although the topic is of major importance, making a feature length documentary that holds one's attention is a real challenge; but fast pace, good interviews... and the inspiring example of Leilani Farha all make this a must."
"Fredrik Gertten's lively, approachable documentary on the global housing crisis should leave audiences feeling engaged, enraged and with plenty to discuss afterwards."
