Give me a baby and I can make any kind of man
11 July 2014 | by abhi-cho2See all my reviews

The documentary covers a wide range of topics but mostly related to human cognition and how it can be manipulated and controlled to accomplish selfish requirements. It starts by citing some pioneering experiments in behaviorism preformed by John B. Watson (the same guy who said "Give me a baby and I can make any kind of man") and then build upon that. It went on and showed how several institution exploited these cognitive domains.

The part which really impressed me is the thoroughness of the facts. A lot of things mentioned are actual scientific studies which can be surfed on web.

I felt it was a bit dragging and reiterative. However the content was appreciable. Overall I feel you must give it a shot.
