Right wing sponsored BS.
13 June 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

When I saw the intro to this documentary, I was flabbergasted; the first four minutes were dedicated to promote giant corporations like FedEx, BP and EDS. Also, the John Templeton Foundation (a promo for free-marked solutions) was one of the major contributors to the making of the movie.

The movie portraits communism and planned economy almost as something evil, using a "red filter" effect and scary music when filming Kreml in Moscow.

This documentary is mostly propaganda, and should not be used for educational purposes. In fact, this movie does not deserve to be called a documentary, as it is "paid and made" by the corporations/bourgeoise.
