The Corporation

So I was led to believe this film was interesting and worth watching, by someone who shall remain nameless.

The first third or so of this film was interesting and thought provoking, it had a simple formula and it was basically working towards it, with interesting interviews and commentary.

Somewhere about a third of the way through it goes off the tracks and we’re talking about IBM being Hitler’s right hand man (the book has been out for at least five years, don’t waste my time, I’ve already read it), anti-trade protests (I hate preaching to the choir, films are meant to make us think), spineless governments (we *are* in a democracy, if the democracy is weak, you’ve only yourself to blame) and communism (eh?).

It was good to see the fact mentioned several times that consumers still actually have the ultimate power.

See the first hour, then walk out.
