Wag your brain

I saw these movies in the last weeks and I think they’re worth seeing.

Some of them are quite insightful and eye openers, understanding more the behaviours and actions that lead/can lead the economy, politics and elections around the world. Some of them I find hard to believe, even in the documentaries movies … I need to see the full list of movies below before ending up with some conclusion.

ZEITGEIST, The Movie

What does Christianity, 911 and The Federal Reserve all have in common?  IMDB reviews here. 8.6 out of 10.

Full movie free to watch below.

Zeitgeist: Addendum

This is the 2008 documentary film produced by Peter Joseph, is a continuation of the film Zeitgeist, the Movie. IMDB reviews here. –  8.7 out of 10.

The film discusses the Federal Reserve System in the United States, the CIA, corporate America and others, concluding with the advocating of the Venus Project, created by social engineer Jacque Fresco. The movie premiered at the 5th Annual Artivist Film Festival in Los Angeles, California on October 2, 2008, and was released free online on October 4, 2008. According to director Peter Joseph, the film “attempts to locate the root causes of this pervasive social corruption, while offering a solution”. In conclusion, Addendum stresses the need for belief systems to embrace the ideas of emergence and interdependence and outlines concrete steps that can be taken to weaken the monetary system. The film suggests actions for “social transformation”, such as boycotts of large banks, the mainstream media, the military and energy companies; rejecting the political structure.

Full movie free to watch below.

Wag the dog

The cast amazing  – Robert de Niro, Dustin Hoffman, just to mention the main characters, plus Anne Heche, Denis Leary, Willie Nelson, Kirsten Dunst, William H. Macy, Woody Harrelson. Oscar awards and reviews from IMDB here. 7.0 out of 10.

The movie is excellently portraying how media can be manipulated, what you see is actually NOT what’s happening….This is the trailer

Wag your brain

Based on the Wag the dog movie,  somebody had the idea to ….wag your brain ... exposing the news from media that don’t state their sources and look like a “wag the dog scheme”.  This is their youtube channel where you can see their uploaded videos and subscribe to them.
