March 13, 2018
This smart, informative and lively polemic makes a strong case for viewing the corporation--which enjoys the legal status of an individual--as a psychopath run amok.
October 29, 2004
A history lesson, a warning shot and damning personality profile, all backed up with expert interviews.
October 22, 2004
Carries a powerful, albeit not new, message. It is frightening.
September 17, 2004
The rare movie that sets out to alter the audience's consciousness -- and succeeds.
September 16, 2004
This documentary's extra-long running time and a narrator who sounds like a sedated Star Trek computer won't win many converts.
September 4, 2004
This is all rigorous, challenging stuff.
August 19, 2004
This is a movie that will make you think.
July 30, 2004
Sharp-witted, infuriating and at times depressing.
July 23, 2004
A highly entertaining and instructive look at a subject that's rarely discussed in detail.
July 23, 2004
Very well informed about the legal origins of corporations and their current near omnipotence.
July 22, 2004
Snappy and visually spry, with a treasure trove of vintage instructional and industrial film clips, this is an urgent, overlong (more than two hours) work that delivers a timely message about the times in which we live.
July 16, 2004
If you care about the environment, workers' rights, your own health and your children's future, you need to see this film.
July 16, 2004
This is another unhelpful screed, uncontaminated by sense or perspective, that preaches loudly to the choir.
July 16, 2004
An impassioned polemic, filled with information sure to break up any dinner-table conversation.
July 16, 2004
At its most effective, the movie is a chastening, sobering, and thorough work of film journalism, however shortsighted.
July 15, 2004
If the filmmakers show a bias (and they do), it doesn't negate their central argument: For better or worse, the trends of global capitalism have changed -- and continue to change -- society as we know it.
July 15, 2004
It's a movie so chock full of information, so dense with context and analysis that it will keep you thinking and reacting, no matter what your bent or slant -- and no matter where you stand on the world-wide corporate ladder.
July 8, 2004
Cool yet scathing.
July 8, 2004
Like Michael Moore (though with a sight more technical and theoretical sophistication), the filmmakers are pretty nimble at filling the screen with snappy graphics and canny editing to keep you alert and amused.
July 2, 2004
Mark Achbar, Jennifer Abbott and Joel Bakan have crafted an informative, amusing and unnerving overview of the history and consequences of corporations.
