Ayn Rand & The Prophecy Of Atlas Shrugged (2011)
Was Ayn Rand predicting the future of America when she wrote "Atlas Shrugged"? The still-influential 1957 novel is newly dissected for its economic and political themes in this documentary, which provides a biographical accounting of Rand's exposure to communism and her desire to thwart any government that dared threaten the pursuit of "rational self-interest," otherwise known as objectivism. Includes interviews with Rand experts and friends. 94 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English; interviews.
