Are they left or right?
12 June 2012 | by stuartmillettSee all my reviews

Loved it! Great film where two clever guys go to great lengths to show up nasty big corporations, the reaction of some representatives is truly saddening. They do mention how the government fits into this and how they should help, but overwhelmingly you will see that this so called free trade has a massive human/environmental cost- you will see CEO's, reps and the like laughing over such things on camera. Some may find these parts disgusting. I found this film made me laugh, made me angry and made me sad all at the same time- something i've never experienced before.

What i hated was reading the other user reviews and finding that nearly everyone is talking about left and right, as if nothing else exists. That makes me sad and i'm dam sure it also makes them sad too. Some of you wise old folk need to try for one second to entertain that maybe they aren't right or left, and maybe, just maybe, they believe in something else entirely. The film, though funny, made me a little sad, reading the user reviews afterwards- more so. Shame:(.
