Movie Summary

Director:
Mark Achbar
Released:
2005
Rating:
R
The Corporation is a documentary film that examines and criticizes the corporation in the modern day. According to law, the American corporation is given the same legal status as a person. The film analyzes the corporation as if it were a psychologist analyzing a human patient. The results are surprising. Written and directed by a team of Canadian lawyers and filmmakers, the film explores the entire history of the corporation, from the 1886 Supreme Court case that established corporate personality up until 2003. Featuring interviews from critics like Noam Chomsky, Michael Moore, and Howard Zinn as well as interviews from CEO’s like Ray Anderson from Interface Carpet & Fabric. Not only was the film released in theaters, it also aired on TVO (TV Ontario) as a three part mini-series, and was released in an expanded DVD. Upon its release, The Corporation received very positive reviews. Currently, it has a 91% approval rating on rottentomatoes.com.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    The Corporation takes great and successful pains to be as visually diverse and clever as it is intellectually provocative.

  • 80

    Variety Dennis Harvey

    A surprisingly cogent, entertaining, even rabble-rousing indictment of perhaps the most influential institutional model for our era.

  • 70

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    The Corporation is a dense, complicated and thought-provoking film, but it simplifies its title character.
