Movie: The Corporation

The Corporation is complete crap! I was looking forward to a thoughtful analysis of the legal and social framework of modern corporations, but all it had was a bunch of hype. I think the director wanted to make a music video, but was stuck making a "documentary". It's just a bunch of metaphors and disjointed facts.

I've heard that Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room is a much better movie. I'll check that one out.

I actually liked it a lot. But I was familiar with the more subtle factual pieces that the movie glossed over.

"Unequal Protection" by Thom Hartmann will give you the same emotional effect with more meat to the argument.

In other words, "yeah, I already knew that".

So what's the point?
