Storyline

Marx Reloaded is a cultural documentary that examines the relevance of German socialist and philosopher Karl Marx's ideas for understanding the global economic and financial crisis of 2008-09. The crisis triggered the deepest global recession in 70 years and prompted the US government to spend more than 1 trillion dollars in order to rescue its banking system from collapse. Today the full implications of the crisis in Europe and around the world still remain unclear. Nevertheless, should we accept the crisis as an unfortunate side-effect of the free market? Or is there another explanation as to why it happened and its likely effects on our society, our economy and our whole way of life? Written and directed by Jason Barker - himself an experienced writer, lecturer, translator and doctor of philosophy - Marx Reloaded comprises interviews with the world's leading philosophers of Marxism, including those at the forefront of a popular revival in Marxist and communist ideas. The film also ... Written by Jason Barker

Quotes

Slavoj Zizek: A communist society would be a society where everyone would be allowed to dwell in his or her own stupidity. You know who gave me this idea? Even Fred Jameson who said what if you imagine communism not as a perfectly normal society but, like a crazy society that you find on some Bruegel painting/proverbs, you know. A madman here that is a man thinks that is a man who thinks he is a chicken, there is a man who thinks he is Napoleon, you know. All these madmen politely existing wouldn't it be ...

Perfect 10
12 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

The first thing to say is that the version of the film that I saw was dubbed into German, which is not a good idea I think, especially in a documentary like this one where there are no actors (apart from in the cartoon sequences, of course!) and it's arguably better to hear what the people are saying in their own words. But then this is the only negative thing I have to say. Even the bizarre spectacle of watching Slavoj Zizek voiced by a German actor couldn't distract me from the energy and imagination of the direction. I think I'm right in saying that this is Jason Barker's first film, but it feels like a really accomplished work from a more experienced film-maker. He leads us through difficult concepts from Marx's philosophy without patronizing us, as a journalist might, but also without overdoing the philosophy and making things more complicated than they need to be. There are also a lot of comic moments, involving a great encounter between between Marx and Zizek that had me laughing out loud. Can't rate this film highly enough. Bravo.
