Jon Lee Anderson,
Looks at the arguments for capitalism and technology, such as greater efficiency, more time and less work, and argues that these are not being fulfilled, and they never will be. The film is about our world, the modern civilization that eats more than needed. It's not very much information that is physically showed, its the pictures in symbiosis with music that is the real strength in this flick. It leans towards anarcho-primitivist ideology and argues for a simple and fulfilling life. Written by

This is without doubt one of the most convincing and impressive documentaries I have ever seen. It is very in-your-face and not subtle, and you might not agree with the message (consumerism is bad), but anyone would have to admit that this film is very, very well made.
It's form is highly original. For example, there's a quick montage of the world's leaders (Bush, Blair, Poetin, Chirac etc.), who's voices have been erased, and replaced by a new one, literally 'putting words in their mouths'. Great!
And I should mention the editing, which is in accordance with the images and music. The whole film playes like a musical piece, with repeting themes, set-ups and climaxes.
For the original form alone, you should see this when you have the chance. Even when you think capitalism is okay.
