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 ...

19 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After 30 minutes I thought about switching this off. In the end it was worth sticking with it. This is not a cinema movie, instead it's a reportage made for television. It's supposed to be "relevant". I struggled through the German dubbing (I fail to see why they couldn't have used subtitles) and at one point felt the film really lacked variety. The pace was unending, one idea rolled out and then another without enough time for reflection. The director had some good ideas, like the pastiche of Alice in Wonderland, and the color-coded visuals helped hold the narrative together. And thinking about it now, the way the narrative progressed helped me understand how the different parts of Marx's work fit together as a whole. Overall it's difficult to judge this as a film with any real defining style. It's probably more important as an idea to provoke debate about the capitalist world we live in.
