Since the American legal decision that the business corporation is legally a person, it has become a dominant economic and social model around the globe. Through various case studies, this film illustrates that this “person” typically acts like a dangerously destructive psychopath without conscience, and how people can resist these entities.

What are critics saying?


Variety by Dennis Harvey

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


Premiere by Glenn Kenny

Over the course of almost two and a half fascinating hours, they make a cogent, compelling, powerful argument, and they also make a terrific movie.


Village Voice by J. Hoberman

A leisurely, never boring, grimly amusing, and not entirely hopeless disquisition on the contemporary world's "dominant institution."


TV Guide Magazine by Ken Fox

Bakan's arguments are buttressed by entertaining clips culled from commercials, industrial films and, appropriately, monster movies.


Entertainment Weekly by Lisa Schwarzbaum

The Corporation has better manners and a longer fuse than ''Fahrenheit 9/11.'' But the acerbic, sardonically illuminating Canadian documentary shares with its American cousin a certain bleak leftist glee in pursuit of its cause.


The A.V. Club by Nathan Rabin

Without a unifying authorial voice to tie it together, the film often feels shapeless and rambling, brought together by little more than free-ranging contempt for capitalism's excesses.
