"L'entreprise est-elle un monstre indomptable ? Si l'entreprise a, légalement, les mêmes droits qu'un individu, pourquoi se conduit-elle de façon si peu humaine ? 'The corporation' montre que le comportement de l'entreprise correspond en tous points à celui d'un psychopathe : égoïste, menteur, se moquant totalement du bien-être et du respect d'autrui... Corrosif, incisif, surprenant, ce documentaire ouvre les yeux des consommateurs que nous sommes tous, et nous montre que nous sommes manipulés à tous les niveaux de notre quotidien. 'The corporation' nous le dit : 'citoyens de tous pays, réveillez-vous !'" [Source : jaquette]
