The Corporation

The Corporation

I’m back with another DVD review… For those of you who like thought provoking documentaries that are intended to take the blinders off and the slobbery ball gag from your mouth, then you’ll love The Corporation.

This is a mulitlayered film that is like the unraveling of an onion, layer by layer. The movie reveals the impact corporations and capitalism has on the world by exposing the greed, slave-labor and the environmental impact it’s had on the planet. Let’s not forget the interviews with the CEO’s who have realized, with remorseful reflection, the responsibility they have in being stewards of the land rather than plunderers ‚Äì though only a handful have come to that realization. Today’s corporation is an all pervasive presence that is compared to the church, the monarchy, and is even more powerful than governments themselves. While each of us wake up every morning, showering with chemicals produced in labs, brushing our teeth with more chemicals, drinking coffee from a processed paper cups with plastic lids, we unknowingly have become enslaved by corporations. From the sheets on your bed and the clothes you wear to the car you drive and the gas you put into it, lurks the fingerprint of the corporate brand. All encompassing and all powerful. The film achieves the many faceted epiphanies by showing the viewer the history of corporations, it’s rise and it’s world dominance in a capitalist society. While the documentary seems a bit long-winded because of it’s nearly two and a half hour time, it redeems itself through it’s powerful content and insightful interviews. Additionally The Corporation isn’t left or right in it’s views. Rather it lays out the facts and lets you come to the conclusion. This is a powerful film that will open your mind.
