Unusually searching Canadian documentary of a how a veneer of reasonableness cloaks the rapacious activities of modern-day corporations. The filmmakers' key argument is that if the entirely profit-driven corporation were a person, it would have to be classified as a psychopath - amoral, deceitful, guilt-free and devoted to self-interest. Intelligently combining archive footage, graphics and interviews with CEOs and with left-wing critics, 'The Corporation' may not have the entertainment value of Morgan Spurlock's 'Super Size Me', yet its conceptual analysis is far more wide ranging and substantial, incorporating examples of corporate exploitation in Bolivia, India and Indonesia, and explaining how IBM profited from the Final Solution.
