In the 98 minutes of "Pink Ribbons, Inc.," a wealth of information and images flit past, many intended to raise eyebrows if not ire.
You have to agree with the advocates who charge that some corporations are milking cancer.
"Pink Ribbons, Inc." is a colorful indictment of corporate infestation, but it's missing a prescription.
At the very least ... this documentary will make you question the status quo.
The film raises the question of whether branding the disease has taken precedence over preventing it.
It's a well-argued polemic that, despite being one-sided, has loads of useful information to share, if only to begin a crucial argument about health care, allocation and coordination of research dollars, consumerism and the privatization of philanthropy.
[After] watching the hard-hitting documentary Pink Ribbons, Inc., you'll never look at that pink toothbrush, food processor or T-shirt the same way again.
Every concerned moviegoer should give this movie's case a fair hearing.
...Ribbons is borderline milquetoast: it doesn't have the courage of its convictions.
Pink Ribbons, Inc. amasses a wide array of pink-tinted footage, balanced by the testimony of women with Stage 4 cancer and experts who haven't drunk the Kool-Aid, pink or otherwise
One of the hallmarks of a great documentary is telling you something you never expected to hear...This Canadian film will, if nothing else, make you think twice every time you see a pink ribbon.
Pink Ribbons is an intelligent and moving account of how capitalism has profited off philanthropy, and how it's hurt cancer patients in the process.
A good way to start a debate among 10 randomly selected individuals would be to have them view Lea Pool's Pink Ribbons Inc and have at each other. The premise of the film is this: you shouldn't be so quick in providing donations to the Pink Ribbon campaign because it has become a PR exercise for firms which often create products that increases the risk of cancer in users and the money may not go to the organizations that can provide a cure. Moving beyond cancer, I think that this is a healthy addition to the debate on corporate responsibility and how willing we are as a society to overlook sins if a cheque is issued to a charity.
