The Corporation

Rated 4.0 This multi-pronged, lumbering documentary about the power and influence of big business and the lack of public control over it uses a mental-health checklist to support its premise that corporations, which have the legal status of an individual, are psychopaths. Economist guru Noam Chomsky, liberal talking heads such as Michael Moore, think-tank members, investigative journalists and others experts and activists examine the age of corporate scandal and the paradox in which companies produce great wealth and, just as great and often, hidden horrors. Directors Mark Achbar and Jennifer Abbott and writers Joel Bakan and Harold Crooks not only want us to ponder whether mankind has created its very own Frankenstein monster, which is both fattening us up and devouring our planet, but also make a compelling case for us to leave the theater and do something about it.
