The Corporation (2004)

Everyone go watch this movie. Right now. Then tell everyone you know to watch it.

All the more relevent today, as Microsoft is literally censoring freedom and democracy in China. Jesus, this is some sad shit:

Weblog entries on some parts of Microsoft's MSN site in China using words
such as "freedom", "democracy" and "demonstration" are being blocked. Chinese
bloggers already face strict controls and must register their online journal
with Chinese authorities. Microsoft said the company abided by the laws,
regulations and norms of each country in which it operates. Also being
restricted on the free parts of the site are journal entries that mention "human
rights" and "Taiwan independence". Those using these banned words or writing
entries that are pornographic or contain sensitive information get a pop-up
warning that reads: "This message contains a banned expression, please delete
this expression."
