| a must see for consumers; that is each of us
there are loads of movies, audio and written material accessible to mass public shouting on the bad globalization, ugly politics etc, etc never going into detail, never explaining what does it actually mean, how we've come to this point and what were the reasons.

This is not that kind of movie. It goes deeper to the beginning of so called globalization in the most analytical detail as i've seen so far. Pilger took one specific country (Indonesia) and went back to 60's where it all started. Asking brave, direct questions to each side involved and getting back different views on the topic. And here you can see that none can bear the responsibility of the system, every corporation, every government can account for a tiny little part of the "evil" therefore stay virtually clean.

I've heard people don't like these kind of movies cause they don't give you any hint on solutions. They shouldn't give. They are to make you think , to make you aware. And nevertheless it teaches people to recognize professional, analytical documentaries (or interview essays in this case) like this one from manipulative, shouting peaces of garbage that flood the public knowledge.

It's a shame that this is the first comment on a this movie which is 7 years old by now.
