I doubt that it's going to come here, though.

The Corporation is a cool-looking documentary about the development of the corporation as a legal entity. It's a legal construct, yes, but it also has the legal standing of a "person." From the movie's website:

Self-interested, amoral, callous and deceitful, a corporation’s operational principles make it anti-social. It breaches social and legal standards to get its way even while it mimics the human qualities of empathy, caring and altruism. It suffers no guilt. Diagnosis: the institutional embodiment of laissez-faire capitalism fully meets the diagnostic criteria of a psychopath.

I think anything that twisted is a must-rent movie.
