    Fascinating case study of the moral quagmire of globalism.
  2. 70
    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.
  4. 60
    A Decent Factory is just as much about the motives of the people asking the questions as those of the people avoiding the answers.
  5. Though it lacks a focus or greater artistic vision, Thomas Balm├Ęs' no-frills documentary offers Westerners a valuable glimpse into the sweatshops of the new China.
  6. 50
    Unintentionally funny is still funny, and the documentary A Decent Factory, had me giggling.
  7. A cursory, irritatingly facile look at the human cost of globalization.
