    This is one of the best movie i have ever watched in my entire life! Indeed an eye opener about society, politics, government and of course money!

    A tale about a crime which, surprisingly, talks about capitalism, philosophy, and good intentions. Not a bad result at all, even if sometimes the plot is lees important than the message.

    This film seemed to be a white supremast incel's wet dream. The bad guys are the only non-white in the movie. There are multiple references to the jews, the Irish, the arabs, the feminist judges.. The story is of a white guys who is super brilliant. So much so that he can't keep a girl. He then takes huge sums of cash, with no regard to security cameras or the tracking equipment on his van, hires a prostitute with is (who has a heart of gold, sees his vast superiority to all the men she's been with and falls in love with him), hires a notorious criminal straight out of jail and a dirty financier, then gets to keep the money because the liberal government of Canada is no match for his brilliance. Really terrible movie that I wish I could erase from my memory.

    This was a very clever film with fascinating dialogues and great acting. I'm not sure why it was named with America in the title since it took place in Canada although the main character's opening lines alluded to the fall of America.

    I really liked this Canadian-French film. It wasn’t terrible what I expected.

    The Fall Of The American Empire is a satire about an academic who delivers packages who ends up arriving after a hold up has taken place and two people are dead and two full bags of money are just lying there. He runs off with it and that's where our story kicks into high gear as he tries to figure out what to do with this money while falling in love with an escort and the police are hot on his tail. This is a crime caper that is very satirical and most of the time the director Denys Arcand hits his targets precisely and there are a lot of laughs. Sometimes the satire is scattered but most of the time this is a very entertaining film that thrills and is very funny and is different from most films playing currently and it's a worth a look if you're into satires or just crime films in general.
