    Just finished watching 2 really disturbing ones.

    Enron

    The Corporation

    Anyone else seen these?

    I saw The Corporation first & it took me awhile to get though it, I'ld get so angry/upset I just had to shut it off.

    Well I finally got through it & felt compelled to share it so I ran it over to my brother.

    He in turn gave me Enron [​IMG] No good deed goes unpunished.

    So anyone.....?

    Enron - all about how/when/why the Enron Corporation collapsed.

    The Corporation - Just that - all about corporations, how they came into being with the "rights" of an individual. How they are mandated to make $ above all other concerns. How if they actually were an individual they would be classified as a psychopath...don't want to give away too much...

    The two movies in conjuction with each other, really do make you stop & think about how & why we are going in the direction that we are.

    I haven't seen Enron or The Corporation, but will check them out. Two very interesting documentaries I've seen recently are Who Killed the Electric Car and Super Size Me. Super Size Me was a little gross at times but very entertaining.
