MoviePass, MovieCrash

A young entrepreneur fights against corrupt investors to save his revolutionary cinema subscription service.


Why watch this film?

MoviePass, MovieCrash is an HBO documentary that, as the title suggests, explores the story of the rise and catastrophic fall of MoviePass, the innovative cinema subscription service in the United States. What really happened? While it follows the formula of typical "talking heads" documentaries, where stakeholders parade in front of the camera giving their testimonies, the documentary hits the nerve by presenting the questionable business decisions made by certain company members, encouraged by a financial system that fosters greed and does not allow fair access to financing for all citizens. In other words, MoviePass, MovieCrash is not just the gossip behind the failure of a potentially groundbreaking company: it is also a critique of the unequal, cynical, and sometimes idiotic business and financial culture of the United States.
