Witty and brilliant
9 May 2017 | by janovjakSee all my reviews

Witty, brilliant real-life documentary about how scared big companies can be when their name and reputation is at stake. This should be part of every citizen's toolbox.

As entertaining as Michael Moore, although way more subtle (this isn't a patchwork of shortcut scenes and quotes, but real field work).
