  • Summary: In a film that exposes the incompetence and corruption at the heart of the United Nations, filmmaker Ami Horowitz exposes how an organization created to ennoble mankind actually enables chaos and global discord. As disturbing as the picture painted by U.N. Me may be, Horowitz manages to keep us laughing throughout the film. (Disruptive Pictures) Collapse

    If it weren't so shocking, it would be a lot funnier.

    U.N. Me isn't all sneering, and it certainly makes its points.

    The result is far from evenhanded, but capable of raising important questions.

    Covering a lot of ground in colorful, pacey fashion, the documentary is nonetheless somewhat compromised itself by co-director Ami Horowitz's insistence on playing the Michael Moore/Morgan Spurlock role of onscreen provocateur.

    Horowitz has Michael Moore's smug tendencies without his schlubby everyman charm, which makes his attempts at goading humor out of uncomfortable interviews come off as unpleasant.

    A damning account of institutional dysfunction whose ability to stoke indignation is undercut by its filmmakers' misguided comic antics.

    What truly makes U.N. Me repulsive is its crassness.

    By focusing only on a selection of (arguably) worst cases, the filmmakers are undermining the important work of thousands of dedicated UN staff and the crucial role the UN plays in maintaining a global platform for global issues for all governments, which enables governments to talk rather than go to war on each other.
