David Rockefeller, the oldest remaining member of the famed oil dynasty, passed away in March of 2017 at the age of 101. His death marked the end of a legacy that was inextricably linked to the politics, reputation, and functions of America itself for generations. Countless tributes may have heralded Rockefeller's passion for philanthropy and his keen intellect for business affairs in the immediate aftermath of his death, but the scathing documentary The Unauthorized Biography of David Rockefeller dares to offer a much more unflattering measure of the man.

Throughout his life, Rockefeller claimed that he existed on the outside of society's innermost circles, but the film sets out to provide a library of evidence to the contrary. According to the filmmakers, his public facade of modesty was all a disingenuous ploy, especially given his leadership role in shaping the landscape of global banking, his enormous influence over the formation of the European Union, and his proximity to nearly every world leader throughout his adult lifetime. He networked with a "who's who" of the most notorious despots and dictators from recent history, including Saddam Hussein and Mao Tse-tung. He was a frequent confidante of American presidents, including the Clinton and Bush families.

This unprecedented power and access was nothing new; it had long gone hand in hand with the massive accumulations of wealth enjoyed by the Rockefeller dynasty. But the central issue explored in the film is how David Rockefeller ultimately chose to use his wealth and influence.

According to the film, he was entirely motivated by bitter sibling rivalries and an insatiable thirst for a larger slice of the financial pie. This life's mission was propelled by his positions as Chair on the Council of Foreign Relations and as Chairman and Chief Executive of Chase Manhattan Corporation, as well as his more clandestine associations with the Bilderberg Group and the Trilateral Commission.

The man may be dead, but the residue of his legacy will remain with us for some time. The Unauthorized Biography of David Rockefeller pulls no punches in its ugly characterization of that legacy. It paints Rockefeller as the ultimate wolf in sheep's clothing, and bemoans the reality they believe he helped to create - one where unregulated greed is rewarded at the expense of suffering populations around the globe.

    that was the most biased documentary I've ever watched...and the bad part is some people will actually think what this guy is saying is the it plays right into the hands of those weirdo's in the Mid-East...

  3. tazmo8448

    Very biased say the least.

  4. Ab Asaff

    Very close to the truth. The nay sayers should have a long hard look at the underbelly of this beast.

    If there is such a thing as justice after our death the only thing this man will own is eternal darkness.

    The fact that journalists were, and maybe still are, part of the Council on Foreign Relations and yet cannot report on its actual work, is the most revealing thing of this doc, I think, given what we know today about fake MSM. So why were, or are, these journalists there? To receive talking points for their articles and broadcasts. It is largely because of the Rockefellers and their associations that wars like the one against Iraq under Bush 43, happen.

    Excellent report ; nice to hear those Irish voices wide to his scummy plans. If they [ Irish] voices ever call into "The Dice Bar" Dublin I'll stand them a pint !

    I love the fact based way this documentary put so much info and left out detail and opinions that turn to feelings. I like it because its like a teacher in public schools giving basically times and event leaving out the humanity's of it . We must look into these stark realities ourselves so that we can form our own opinions and figure out how it has changed the world and its people so greatly and will continue to. I hope someone is smart enough to figure out how to stop a family or two from monopolizing our every day... no one person should have that power... thank you top documentaries for allowing us a front seat. I appreciate everything I learn through your site.
