    Fascinating case study of the moral quagmire of globalism.

    This film exposes a more insidious kind of exploitation, one far more difficult to detect.
  3. Why, then, is the picture chilling? Because it is a calm reminder of an inevitability. The sight of long lines of young women doing tiny bits of attachment work or packing hour after hour, day after day, is saddening.

    Director Thomas Balmès mostly just tags along for the ride, but the incidental details he picks up taint the sense of guarded hopefulness.

    Unintentionally funny is still funny, and the documentary A Decent Factory, had me giggling.
  6. Though it lacks a focus or greater artistic vision, Thomas Balmès' no-frills documentary offers Westerners a valuable glimpse into the sweatshops of the new China.
  7. A cursory, irritatingly facile look at the human cost of globalization.
