Austin Chronicle

There's at least one great hour of filmmaking in The Corporation.

South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Utterly fascinating, an exhaustive and engaging study of business as it has evolved since the Civil War.

| Original Score: 3.5/4

Jeffrey Bruner
Des Moines Register

A polemic that's alternately depressing, enlightening and alarming, but it's also unwieldy and unfocused.

The rare movie that sets out to alter the audience's consciousness -- and succeeds.

This documentary's extra-long running time and a narrator who sounds like a sedated Star Trek computer won't win many converts.

Phil Villarreal
Arizona Daily Star

Corporations are out to get you, and you need to be afraid. You need to lock your back door at night and keep a gun under your pillow.

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.

This is all rigorous, challenging stuff.

The most fascinating interviews are the ones that make you scratch your head and ask, 'How do these people sleep at night?'

Jeff Vice
Deseret News, Salt Lake City

The film deserves to be seen, and its concepts deserve to be discussed in an open forum.

Rob Thomas
Capital Times (Madison, WI)

It's like a company that diversifies into so many different product lines that it forgets what its core mission is.

Even at 145 minutes, it doesn't feel long; the topic stays interesting all the way through

Apollo Guide

Well-rounded and fair, yet its core arguments are so strong that it inspires responsible and immediate activism.

Duane Dudek
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Equal parts documentary, PowerPoint presentation and old-school classroom lecture about how the business of making money for a small group of stockholders comes at the expense of a big group of stakeholders -- otherwise known as the rest of us.

| Original Score: 3/4

Film Journal International

Achbar and Abbott would have had a first-rate film had they stuck with their conceit -- corporations as inmates running the asylum -- but they dilute their case in an attempt to make it irrefutable.

An important documentary, if only for putting so many convincing voices together in one place and providing a coherent argument that the way things are isn't the way they have to be.

If not a call to arms, The Corporation amounts to a manifesto against the growing power of global capitalism
