New Movie Must-See: Maxed Out

From the folk that brought us SuperSizeMe, another new documentary: Maxed Out. From the site:

"Maxed Out takes viewers on a journey deep inside the American style of debt, where things seem fine as long as the minimum monthly payment arrives on time. With coverage that spans from small American towns all the way to the White House, the film shows how the modern financial industry really works, explains the true definition of "preferred customer" and tells us why the poor are getting poorer while the rich keep getting richer. Hilarious, shocking and incisive, Maxed Out paints a picture of a national nightmare which is all too real for most of us."

It's only in limited release at the moment, just as SuperSizeMe was - initially. SuperSizeMe is now on television, regularly: just this past week, it was shown in its entirety on MSNBC.
