I saw part 1 of the movie last year or early this year; ended (iirc) with the Wyatt's Torch scene. I wonder if they're ever going to finish it.

Yes and it comes out in October of this year. Great time right before the elections.

I think it is a documentary of the book, not the movie. I love the book, couldn't watch the movie more than 10 minutes or so.

Going to have to take a look at the documentary on netflix

Agree on the movie not being near as good as the book, but maybe people who haven't read the book will watch the movie; that'd be a good thing imo.

Thought the movie was quite good considering the limited funds and limited time they had to produce.....
And Dagny was pretty HOT.

Part 1 of the movie is available on NetFlix on-line...no additional cost (we have the $7.99 a month deal)

I have it in my queue to watch when I have time...the book drags (at least towards the beginning)

Not to mention the 80 or 90 page rant in the middle. I read the book back in the 70's. I've listened to it on audio books a couple times since. You can just FF through the rant if you want.

Interesting how like the book our country is becoming what with "the looters", victimization, political correct speech being enforced, and the rich bailing because of high taxes. The rhetoric is we hear now from the left is so like the book that it is is laughable if it wasn't so sad.

Yes the book was wonderful, if only the movie could have done it justice.

I think of China as "Colorado", the place that you could run too with your business and your money and not be bothered by the Mooches. Sad that I think about it that way because personal freedom has always followed economic freedom, not the other way around.

China has been on the move in personal freedom as is always the case when you have increased economic freedom.

We on the other hand have been losing our economic freedom and oddly enough we are losing our personal freedom right behind it.

Just saw the documentary and now I'm looking for a copy of Atlas Shrugged, I'm sure it will be more of an eye opener than the documentary. America has fallen a long way from the ideals it was built on.

One of my favorite books of all time. You are going to love it.

I believe it's a trilogy, but not completely certain of that.
