The Corporation (documentary)

SHARE

Woe betide any conservative who wanders into a screening of this Canadian cautionary film! With sly, mildly irreverent wit and the enthusiasm of cause-happy youth, the eye-opening doc examines what a “corporation” is, how corporations are the dominant force in the modern world, and how that’s generally not for the betterment of society. The conclusion: If a corporation were a person, it would be a psychopath. A staggering number of interviews and piles of footage both stock and new provide insight and provoke thought, and the whole thing’s pretty darn entertaining, too.

B+ (2 hrs., 25 min.; Not Rated, probably PG-13 for some profanity and violent images.)
