i think the documentary was evaluating the very nature of capitalism and the market company. Every big corporation started out as a mom and pop store, so...
Um documentário hipócrita. Não mostra NENHUMA novidade. Enquanto tenta vender a ideia de que as corporações têm o comportamento de psicopatas durante 2h, reserva apenas os últimos 5 minutos para "indicar" o que pode ser feito contra elas. É a velha história: os corruptos são os outros, "os políticos" (no caso, "as corporações"). Se você fosse dono de uma corp., você faria diferente? Nota: B-
The film's basic premise is that the corporation embodies the traits of the psychopath: effortless charm disguising a total disregard for others, inability to sustain long-term relationships, ruthless pursuit of the single thing which they aim to obtain, etc. It's an extremely convincing premise.
Collapses under its own weight. The last thirty minutes or so haphazardly falls into documentary, "and YOU TOO can save the world" territory. Make the world dark so Joe Schmo can't cop out not doing anything because other people are doing it already.
well-made documentary that falls into a typical trap: attributing mechanisms inherent to capitalism(i.e. urge to make maximum amount of profit at all costs) to "greedy large corporations". your average mom-and-pop-store/wholefoods/vintage record dealer works just the same way. the problem is the market economy itself.
This would be the type of movie that high schoolers would love to watch in class, not because it would pique their interest, but rather that at nearly 2 & half hours it would allow them a few days to nod off in class. The whole movie had me, but the scene talking about the Happy Birthday song seemed a bit too on the nose.
