The Corporation is a 145-minute documentary film written by Joel Bakan and directed by Mark Achbar and Jennifer Abbott, dealing with the nature of the corporation. The documentary is critical of the modern-day corporation, considering its legal status as a class of person and evaluating its behavior towards society and the world at large as a psychiatrist might evaluate an ordinary person. Featuring interviews with prominent corporate critics, company CEOs, business gurus, whistle-blowers, and think tanks advocating free markets, the documentary examines the very nature of the corporation - its inner workings, curious history, controversial impacts and possible futures.
