    This is a well made, lefty-liberal documentary about corporations that Hulu posted a while back. I own it on DVD and I do have to warn anyone interested that you should only watch it if you have 2 and 1/2 hours to spend. Get a BUNCH of movie snacks.

    Here's what the back of the DVD case says;
    "In this acclaimed documentary from the co-director of Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media, 40 corporate insiders and critics - including Michael Moore, Noam Chomsky, No Logo author Naomi Klein and Noble Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman - explore the nature and spectacular rise of the most pervasive institution of our time. Combining analysis with footage from advertising, television news and industrial films, The Corporation is an entertaining and provocative look at the inner workings, curious history, controversial impacts and possible futures of the modern global conglomerate."

    Here's the link to Noam Chomsky's Manufacturing Consent - 2 hours and 47 minutes. It's pretty dated and it's pretty much a watered-down version of his book by the same name, but if you don't really know who Noam Chomsky is it's a decent introduction.

    For some balance, here's a documentary critiquing Michael Moore; Michael Moore Hates America. It's a measly hour and a half. I haven't actually watched it :wink:
