Movie Info

This documentary begins with an unusual detail that came from the 14th Amendment: Under constitutional law, corporations are seen as individuals. So, filmmaker Mark Achbar asks, what type of person would a corporation be? The evidence, according to such political activists as Noam Chomsky and filmmaker Michael Moore and company heads like carpet magnate Ray Anderson, points to a bad one, as the film aims to expose IBM's Nazi ties and these large businesses' exploitation of human rights.

Audience Reviews for The Corporation

  • Dec 24, 2010
    Def. "Corporation": The Devil amongst us. No, literally. The appearance of Michael Moore in this informative and nothing-more-than-fun documentary should have warned me since the beginning. I can't fully complain, since University made me re-watch this. Well, definitely the debate we had in class and the books we read regarding Problems of Contemporary Civilization were several times more interesting than this pretentious documentary that tells nothing new. Everything is known already. However, the filmmakers decided to extend this to two and a half hours, which is something remarkable already, since they had more than twenty hours of footage initially. Watch the first half and have a good time; then, you can happily switch off. The Corporation is even hypocritical: it presents one-sided arguments throughout and, in the end, it urges people (err... Michael Moore urges people) to take action. Are solutions provided? No. That can be interpreted as: "Final conclusion: Stop buying products from corporations and let's return to the farming times." Grade: C 63/100

    One of the best documentaries I've seen. I was quite shocked at some points. It's utterly compelling and really lays out how corporations have been screwing us and the world over all in the name of profit.

    I really had my sights set on a battle royal (or at least some juxtaposition) of Chompsky vs. Moore somewhere in this movie, but never happens. Their segments are definitely spaced apart in the movie. On the positive side is Ray Anderson CEO and Founder of the largest modular carpeting manufacturer in the world discusses his own and his corporations view on industrial ecology and sustainability. In the end the movie is 2/3 sentimental heart-string plucking with about a 1/3 of really good content.

    A very important documentary because it touches on EVERYTHING that should be important to everyone - the environment, human rights, public health, justice, government, politics, etc. It's very educational and easy to watch - you learn a lot! The diversity of people interviewed was also great.
