Directed by: Mark Achbar, Jennifer Abbott
At 145 minutes, The Corporation somewhat overstays its welcome, but this is an important -- and frequently infuriating -- work about global corporations riding roughshod over the world in the name of commerce. As is often the case with films of this sort, the mouthpieces speaking in support of the practices being examined are frequently the strongest arguments against those practices. The film may be a little uneven, but it's worth your attention, if only for the sections dealing with Monsanto and the dangers of Prosilac, a drug used to increase milk production. Unafraid to point fingers, the film paints a very uncomfortable picture of corporate greed that implicates not only Monsanto, but Fox News and the FDA as well.
