Capitalism hasnt had much good press lately, and when it comes to the movies capitalism never seems to get a fair shake. In the movies, capitalists are almost invariably cast as villains. Has someone been murdered? Are the residents of a small town dying of cancer? Is an environment being despoiled? Look no further than the CEO of some large corporation. Quick, name as many movies as you can that feature capitalists as heroes. Batman Forever and Iron Man do not count. There are a few (The Edge, Youve Got Mail), but its a short list. Now name as many movies as you can that feature mass-murdering corporations and corporate villains? That one is easy: The Fugitive, Syriana, Mission Impossible II, Erin Brockovich, The China Syndrome and Avatar, to name only a few.
