Zeitgeist – three movies with powerful messages that you may love or despise. They dragged on a lot to me, but to be fair, I was already familiar with a lot of the information. These movies are so long I can not write entire reviews. They’re two to three hours each with a lot of heavy material, but I’ll try to give you a glimpse into each one…
Enter Zeitgeist: The Movie attempts to pain the picture of our current situation by: questioning religion; discussing current events such as 9/11 and the war on terror; and telling some of the history leading us to how we got here.
Enter Zeitgeist: Addendum repudiates our monetary system followed up with interviews with an ‘economic hitman’. It then discusses an alternative to our monetary system with a resource based society ( I LOVE IT ) and addresses changes to society than can improve things.
Enter Zeitgeist: Moving Forward is much like the second and features Jacque Fresco who proposed a resource based economy in the second movie. They talk about that and human nature and end with things looking bleak, but follow up with messages to inspire hope. I love the idea of a resource based economy but don’t agree with many of the plans with it from this movie.
In the end they do paint a promising picture, though. There are a lot of movies telling of corruption and problems, but not many follow up with whole movies presenting alternatives to the situation and maintaining that we can pull them off! So, good job Zeigeist.
