The Corporation


At a buttock-anesthetising two-and-a-half hours, "The Corporation" is a pretty tough sell — especially when you consider its big message is essentially ‘the world is fucked’. But what it covers is so fundamentally relevant, and its polemic so persuasively structured, it’s worth braving the two-and-a-half-hour runtime.

It's a must-see documentary for anyone concerned about the enormous influence of multinational corporations on just about every facet of our existence. Sweatshops, child labor, environmental destruction, product marketing to children, the limiting of people's access to information, and the privatization of the most fundamental resources -- and even the most basic building blocks of life itself -- are discussed in great detail, as are how brands are marketed to children and the sometimes shocking history of many corporations' relentless pursuit of profit and "the bottom line."

I bought the two-DVD set today at my loal op-shop for just two dollars. You can watch it for free on YouTube!
