Corporation is compeling documentary
about a kind of business structure an
organization can use that gives it more
rights as a person! The film by Marc Achbar,
Joel Baken, and Jennifer Abbott talks
about the corporation its effects on politics,
the world community and how it continues
to get a pat on the back instead of a
slap in the face!
get to hear about Monsanto, a company
thats chemicals are debilitating cows
for the aim of increasing milk production
despite the lack of need. How about the
unhealthy ways these companies dispose
of chemicals and the lack of regulations
and more. How about secret or misleading
product placement anyone? In 24 chapters
The Corporation gives you a very clear
pictures of why corporations need to regulated
and that people should be careful and
aware of what is happening.
film shows this through anaylsis, and
footage from advertising, television news
and industrial film and you get to here
from 40 insiders and critics like Filmmaker
Michael Moore, famed author Noam Chomsky,
the author of No Logo: Naomi
Klein about the corporation and match
the make up of a psychopath to corporation
and see if they fit. The film shows a
lot of the inside workings, peculiar histories
and future impacts of some conglomerates
we all know and in a lot of ways support
with our dollars unknowing of their practices.
The film is 145 minutes and the special
edition two-disc DVD is filled with interview,
eight deleted scenes, five hours of additional
footage, Janeane Garofalo's interview
with writer Joel Baken on Air America's
Majority Report and a host of other
resources. This film won 23 international
awards including the Sundance World Cinema-Documentary
Audience Award. If you thought movies
like Roger & Me and Fahrenheit
911 were shocking check this out
and don't cringe!
this movie is a must see and casts an
unrighteous light on the big company called
a corporation. While we all should know
that there are a good amount of good apples
(Haha!) there are those who need to be
held accountable for their terrible practices.
I'll thankfully give the film 4.5 GeoGlobes.
