Aroview: In a modern world where corporate power has come to exceed political power, this in-depth documentary defines a growing popular concern about big business’s all-consuming appetite for profit.
Conceived as an entity that enjoys the same legal rights as a citizen, this asserts that if the Corporation were in fact a citizen it would fit the psychological profile of a “psychopath”. Rounding up the usual suspects in support of its argument (Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, Michael Moore, etc.), this extends beyond business ethics and accountability to grave environmental concerns that don’t so much set off alarm bells as draw our attention to a ticking time bomb. Required viewing, no less...
4 stars (Very Good) A brilliant, although slow-to-start and long-winded documentary that is well worth the ride, even if it lacks direction at times. Will make you see corporations differently, that's for sure.~Tom H
3 stars (Good Enough) The directors give a thorough and reasoned diagnosis of the corporate "personality" using the standard clinical tests. Sociopathic?-- definitely ; Psychotic?-- arguably. Oh dear. ~Anon
