The movie is not only anti-capitalism but anti-society, and, indeed, anti-God.
So how does it feel to watch the point flying over your head?

The reviewer obviously doesn't understand the nature of Marxist theory. He can't even understand the problems capitalism causes within society.

Anti-god? Wow. Go back to the television and watch it again numnuts.

It doesn't matter if the movie is anti-capitalism, anti-society or anti-god. You cant use your own convictions, beliefs or disbeliefs to analyze a movie! Of course the movie is all about anarchy and maybe it as a message society should pay atention. I dont thing marxism or anarchy are the great solutions but so it isn't capitalism!
But as I said, that doesn't matter! It is one of the greatest movies ever because of the brilliant performances of Brad, Edward and Helena, the brutal direction but, most important, the wonderfull script that gets you in the end with a punch in your stomach!

"The movie is not only anti-capitalism but anti-society, and, indeed, anti-God"Yeah, no sh*t, that was the whole point of the movie. You shouldn't take a film so seriously, it's not real.

This review is not only idiotic but anti-art, anti-free-thinking and down right pathetic.It's people like you who blame real life violence on Grand Theft Auto and Eminem. People like you who are slowly ruining every form of art with your closed-minded political correct gone mad views. Accept the film for the beautiful direction, stunning dialogue and incredible story that it is. It's entertainment, not some wierd, secret message diluting evil output that turds like you keep trying to make it.Get a brain.

The only one out of those that is remotely true is anti-capitalism. I can see the stretch to anti-society sort of. Anti-God however? I don't think so...Besides what the movie and book are both supposed to be about is a story about two people finding each other in a strange and crazy world. Straight from the authors mouth. Summarized of course.

"If our father where our models of God, And our father's bailed? What does that tell you about God"

Yeah, the movie is not anti-god, first of all. Second of all, don't bring your own convictions into it if you love capitalism so much. That's like saying you didn't like "Casablanca", cause you don't like old movies!

This is a film about a man who whines because he has to go to work so he can buy furniture from Ikea, and claims that "society" is "forcing" him to do this. The film then takes his whining, his blaming the rest of the world for his own inadequacy, and shows where it ends up - with a cult of similarly whining idiots trying to irritate the rest of us, all because they don't want to man up and do a day's work. And if this isn't clear, the main character discovers he's an insane terrorist.In short, it's not a satire about "capitalism" (what the hell do you people think that word means?)It's a note-perfect prediction of Al Qaeda, if anything. "Cells operating without central leadership" gets a mention, doesn't it? Except as far as we know Bin Laden is not involved with Helena Bonham-Carter.All you fanboys who think the movie has some message for you about how screwed up the world is - you're part of the joke! You're the followers, wearing black and fantasising about following all Brad Pitt's naughty instructions. You're the all-singing, all-dancing punchline to the central joke of this movie.

Alex, if any film that pushes the envelope gets classed as anti-capitalism, anti-society or anti-god by yourself, what kind of bubble are you living in? I really do think you'd be better off writing reviews for fish n chip papers like the sun or the daily mail.
When I first saw this film I was completely mezmerised & addicted to it. From the then cutting edge use of CGI, to the post-punk anarchistic philosophies, right through to the black comedy & twist at the end.
The truth of the matter is that this film is meant to make you think for yourself, to inspire you to be independant in your thoughts and actions, to be not afraid to say **** you to the "man".
If you think that capitalism works (which from your review, its sounds like you do) you've got to ask yourself "does it really?" when you look at the ****e state of affairs we are all involved at the moment. Take a look around you, but remember to take your blinkers off (which you failed to do when watching this film). You don't have to be a scientist to guess what questions I have go to ask about being anti-society & anti-God.
We recommend you watch this film again with an open mind, then think about what you have just watched and write a decent review instead of the ****e you wrote which prompted me to post this comment.

That blurb describes a fresh movie. Why was this given a rotten rating?
Jul 8 - 10:42 AM
Other than that 2nd part, what's wrong with that?
Jul 14 - 07:26 PM
The movie isn't perfect, but those are some bold claims. If you don't like it because of that, you are one sad nitpicker.
