Not cinematically adventurous, yet this important documentary recruits economists, activists, CEOs, filmmakers among many other to account for the gigantism of the modern corporation and its gargantuan penetration into the life-world. Among its many merits are the counterarguments offered by the apostles of neo-liberalism, ultimately collapsing in face of a relentless alienation of the commons! Highly recommended!
3.5 Everyone should think about the ideas, even if some are a little clumsily presented, because I think it's rare that they're given much explicit attention or thought in mainstream society and they're important issues. In terms of the documentary form, though there's not much to write home about.
A good, interesting document. I am no expert in economy, but at least I found it entertaining. I'm glad it mentions an alternative to capitalism, and that is socialism. It would be great to see Corporation 2.0, and have a look on how things have changed since 2003...
Despite its unquestionable value as a reminder of the ugly side of corporations -in most cases preaching to the converted- it is not radical in the sense that it does not aim its gun to the heart of the beast, the current neoliberal model of capitalism in which corporations are allowed to operate fairly unregulated. It lacks insight into current popular & governmental movements globally challenging this status quo.
