Big Picture Media Corporation, 2005, DVD ACH
Corporations are the dominant institution of our time. One of the reasons such organizations have become so powerful, is because in the mid-1800s they were given the legal status of a "person", in order to encourage economic growth. In this hard-hitting documentary, a successful film-making team follow the legal status of a corporation as a "person" to its logical conclusion, suggesting that an individual who acted in the manor of a corporation would be medically diagnosed as a "psychopath" - a callous, deceitful, self obsessed person who feels no trace of guild at his own inherently amoral actions. Provoking, witty and sweepingly informative, The Corporation includes forty interviews with corporate insiders and critics Â including Milton Friedman, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein and Michael Moore.
