Documentary: "The Corporation"

Talk about reviews that unsell movie tickets: Stephen Hunter of the Washington Post calls this 145-minute slab of anti-business propaganda "another unhelpful screed, uncontaminated by sense or perspective ... mostly talking-head interviews with such droning didacts as Noam Chomsky. .... It's the angry guy at the party who stands too close and spits while he talks." ("So Much Less Than Moore in 'Corporation'", Jul. 16; Neil Hrab, "Celluloid Bolshies", TechCentralStation, Jul. 28). The spin-off book from the project, meanwhile, is written by Joel Bakan of the University of British Columbia. He's a law professor. More: Spiked-Online didn't like it either.
