Camp FEMA (2009)

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on October 10, 2011

Another great documentary from director William Lewis (or how to turn a low-budget documentary into a historical eye-opener), this is a film to watch in order to understand the times which will come (especially in case you still had any remaining dreams or wishful thinking about US). 

In case you didn’t know, Bush jr and Obama have managed the creation of a network of huge concentration and labor camps all around US, thousands of them , each of them having the capacity of retaining thousands of prisoners. This grid, perfectly similar to the German concentration camps, is waiting to be populated with American citizens and generally speaking anyone who is imprudent enough to be suspected of acts against government.

FEMA is a national agency, military ran, which has the authority of declaring law enforcements actions of soldiers against citizens for pretexts of crowd “control”, betting on the fact there will be a social rise against the economic crisis, for detaining everyone and anyone.

This is actually associated with the massive surveillance grid, which in reality has the purpose of domestically spying their own citiyens for alleged acts of terorism. The law, structure, military and techonology now exists to create what Steven Speilberg’s brilliant anticipation foresaw in “Minority Report”

Seems familiar?

My rating: 8 / 10 (Masterpiece)

A Crude Awakening: The Oil Crash (2006)

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on September 20, 2011

Director Basil Gelpke received The Jury Prize “Golden Sun” at the Barcelona International Film Festival (2007), the 2nd place in the Documentary Award category at Galway Film Fleadh (2006), the award for best documentary at Palm Beach International Film festival (2006), the Zurich film award (2006), the “Wake Up Call” award for best movie of the festival at Tahoe Reno International Film Festival (2006).

I loved how the director used the music of Philip Glass, one of the best American composers alive.

Supported by a powerful mix of archival footage, NASA shots of burning oil fields, and, often unintentionally hilarious, historical film excerpts, OilCrash guides us on an exotic, visual journey from Houston to Caracas, the Lake of Maracaibo, the Orinoco delta, Central Asia’s secretive republic of Azerbaijan with its ancient capital Baku and the Caspian Sea, via London & Zürich. OilCrash visits cities around the world to learn of our future from such leading authorities as oil investment banker Matthew Simmons, former OPEC chairman Fadhil Chalabhi, Caltech’s head of physics, Professor David Goodstein, Stanford University political scientist, Terry Lynn Karl, peak oil expert, Matthew Savinar and many more.

Good documentary, but not the best in the Oil field (although it is in Top 10). It will help you understand a lot of things if you don’t know anything on the topic.

My rating: 6 / 10.

Enjoy watching it!

What in the World Are They Spraying? (2010)

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on July 27, 2011

Although not the best on the topic, it does have its merits, especially for those who did not have the chance to see another feature. This is an ambitious low-budget documentary which will walk you across the world, from Hawaii to Belgium and back to the US, right in the Senate, where the filmmakers tried to get the attention of the politicians about this extraordinary phenomenon which is now happening all around the world, starting with the big cities, to the small town.

Maybe some of you have observed on the sky all kinds of trails, and assumed they are from reaction jets. Still, these kind of trails have special properties: they remain for longer periods of time (as opposed to the jet trails, which disappear fast) and they decrease the level of visibility in the environment on a long term. The chemicals spread oout in the air destroy buildings, crops, woods. The plants are weaker, the air is harder to breathe and especially people with respiratory diseases have troubles with this.

Although it is a phenomenon everybody saw, nobody at the official level seems to aknowledge what this is. Confronted with the evidence of tons of aluminium, barium, strontium and other substances which fall from the trails on the ground, most of the politicians and the public officials prefer to avoid any answers.

I really recommended it, especially because it is fresh (2010) and for the brave approach, the Alex Jones & Michael Moore guts of putting politicians on the spot in front of the cameras.

My rating: 6 / 10 (Good documentary)

PS: Interesting fact, in one of the sequences, senator Charlie Wilson (!) – yes, the Charlie Wilson from Charlie Wilson’s War – is asked about the chemtrails and says he doesn’t know anything.

Century of the Self

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on July 18, 2011

“Century of the Self” – Adam Curtis’ documentary on how the western culture was radically transformed through widespread manipulation, public relations, advertising and research design. Here we have extended information on the research that has been done in the years ’70- ’80 concerning values and the categories that were developed based on those studies – I’m not only talking about the Maslow extended pyramid that he developed based on the suggestions of Clare W. Graves (not mentioned in the documentary), but also about the criteria, metaprograms (especially the self-others and need-want to dichotmies) and VALS I and VALS II systems.

My rating: 10 / 10

Food, Inc.(2008)

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on July 14, 2011

Nominated for best documentary feature at the Oscars and for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Documentary by Directors’ Guild of America, this brilliant production is the best on alimentation and food.

Although a lot of the issues presented are rather specific to the US, the system is the same or similar in other countries as well. Although in some countries in Europe (such as Belgium, Italy, Hungary), there are very strict regulations for labeling food and what is allowed for aliments to contain, in other countries, it is not, and there is a very strong lobby from the corporations to discard it.

If you will watch it not as a documentary about a situation in US, but about a mechanism that is transforming wordlwide agriculture, you will discover  it is a global problem, which sooner or later will start knocking on your door. The way in which people consume food has changed so radically, that in order to satisfy in the most profitable manner the consumers’ desires, the companies have dropped all safety standards and have moved them so far beyond conceivable, that it might shock you to find out how the food you eat is being produced.

If you want to live, you cannot afford not to care about what you eat. Anything less than gaining awareness means disease or death, for you and all your loved ones. Watching this might be the most important decision you have taken in a while. This up-to-date take on such a major issue is approached with maximum professionalism and with a budget which helps get the message across in a creative design.

A must see. A masterpiece. My rating: 8 / 10.

Iraq for sale: The War Profiteers (2006)

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on July 12, 2011

Director Robert Greenwald and Brave New Films stand behind a great series of documentaries produced on actual and relevant issues.

This is the best documentary on the war in Iraq released until now and the best documentary on any war that I have ever seen in my life. I have seen a lot of documentaries about US’ wars over energy resources (especially Iraq, Afghanistan – sure hope to see soon something about Lybia) and I have read some very good books on the war in Iraq, but this tops it all.

From A to Z, you will understand why the 2nd invasion of Iraq marks not only a new kind of warfare, but also a new kind of combatant in a war: it is the first time in the known history of mankind when a Government hired a private army to colonize a country. The film depicts the horrible mockery that this whole business has been to the state of Iraq, to the American soldiers and to the tax payers. Who benefits the most out a war which has no chance of ending in our lifetimes?

How do these companies waige war against another country without suffering any consequences for their actions?

What does this new kind of war means to the world?

How is the US Army killing and making sick its own soldiers for the profit of a few?

How are the contracts assigned and what is the importance of lobby and connections?

This documentary brings into light absolotely scandalous information, at first hand and gives us a full range perspective on the implications, mechanisms and characteristics of this war.

If you would only have one documentary to choose to understand the topic of Iraq war, this is the one. A definitely must see.

Warning! While it does not depict any visual violence, the greed depicted might make you sick!

My rating: 9 / 10 ( A perfect documentary)

The Corporation (2003)

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on July 5, 2011

This Canadian documentary is a great watch especially for the students or graduates of economic and communication sciences. A brave approach, this logical demonstration of the idea that any corporation, as a concept, is pathologic and has a psychopatic profile would have make me think twice before choosing my line of work.

I would have chosen the same thing, but with more insight and less expectations. Far from the intention of demonizing corporations without argumentation, this is a very rigurous approach on the topic of transnational corporations’ power worldwide, which started in USA.

The model for extending a corporation as a business model is presented as a cancer to the modern society. This is not one of those hopeful documentaries, although in the end there is the hope to brang the power back to the consumers. It is yet not too late. We do not have a “Rollerball” society.

The picture has won the Special Jury Award at the  Amsterdam International Documentary Film Festival (2003), The Genesis Award for best documentary (2005), The Genie Award for best documentary (2005), the audience award in the “World Cinema – Documentary” section at the International Sundance Independent Film Festival (2004) and at the Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival (2004) and “The Most Popular Canadian film” la Vancouver International Film Festival (2004). So prepare yourself to be awarded!

My rating: 7 / 10 (great documentary)

Endgame: Blueprint for Global Enslavement (2007)

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on June 29, 2011

Alex Jones, which I consider the greatest documentarist alive (yes, better even than Michael Moore), takes an open frontal approach to the issue of world depopulation plans. This documentary might shock you if you have no prior information.

The basic facts:

The Bildenberg Club is an organization counting about 300-400 people which meet every year in a very discrete location, away from the large mass-media coverage and take decisions about global geopolitics for the next few years. Usually, what gets discussed at the Bildenberg meetings gets done. In some years, the alternate media sneakes in and manages to find out what is being discussed, who and what says and so on.

Henry Kissinger is one of the worst war criminals in the history of America, worked as a US Ambassador and secretary of state, his career surviving the Vietnam and Watergate PR dizasters. He ellaborated in the ’70s a plan to reduce world population, which has been publicly supported by magnats (Ted Turner, Bill Gates) and politicians (Ronald Reagan, Prince William of the UK) and CEOs (alimentation, pharma) and is an ongoing process which advocates for:

  • abortions
  • wars
  • rights for the LGBT community
  • birth control & reduction
  • vaccines which produce sterility
  • political programs which destroy family life
  • eugenics
  • the right to commit suicide
  • genetically modified food
  • irradiated food
  • drug liberalization
  • weaponised viruses
  • … and pretty much anything which shorts or kills the life of any human

This documentary takes into account the facts and presents them subjectively, arguing it is a fight for any human being to take against these elites. Although it cannot be said it is an objective film, it has the great quality of presenting conspiracy facts in stead of conspiracy theories.

If you did not know the information from this film, I am sorry for your loss. You have the right to regret the beautiful bubble in which you lived until now. Welcome to the real world!

From the Youtube description:

“For the New World Order, a world government is just the beginning. Once in place they can engage their plan to exterminate 80% of the world’s population, while enabling the “elites” to live forever with the aid of advanced technology. For the first time, crusading filmmaker ALEX JONES reveals their secret plan for humanity’s extermination: Operation ENDGAME.

Jones chronicles the history of the global elite’s bloody rise to power and reveals how they have funded dictators and financed the bloodiest wars—creating order out of chaos to pave the way for the first true world empire. * Watch as Jones and his team track the elusive Bilderberg Group to Ottawa and Istanbul to document their secret summits, allowing you to witness global kingpins setting the world’s agenda and instigating World War III. * Learn about the formation of the North America transportation control grid, which will end U.S. sovereignty forever. * Discover how the practitioners of the pseudo-science eugenics have taken control of governments worldwide as a means to carry out depopulation. * View the progress of the coming collapse of the United States and the formation of the North American Union.”

My rating: 7 / 10 (great documentary)

Inside Job

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on June 27, 2011

One of the best documentaries about the financial crisis, it has one of the best structured approaches I have ever seen in a documentary. It presents the history, the causes, the effects, the actors and the victims, from A to Z. Together with Alex Jones’ “Fall of the Republic”, it is the best film ever done about the new era of the world economy which has started in 2007. One of the greatest merits of the film is the way it takes a complex issue and approaches it in shuch a manner that it makes it easy for anyone to understand.

This film has been considered “the most important film at the Cannes festival (2010), the best full feature documentary of the year (Oscar – The American Academy for Motion Pictures and Sciences). It has received the Director’s Guild Award and the Writer’s Guild Award in 2011. it has been presented at the Toronto film Festival and it received, especially in the US, a lot of awards and nominations for excellence in film making. One of the Oscar receivers said at the ceremony it would be great to have jailed some of CEOs who was awarded lots of money after their companies broke .

Matt Damon proves his narrating abilities adding up to the film’s atmosphere. A clear-cut 360 degrees documentary. A must see!

My rating: 8 / 10 (Masterpiece)

Metrobranding. A Love Story Between Men and Objects (2010)

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on June 19, 2011

This is one of the best Romanian economic documentaries. It tells the story of a series of excellent products Romania used to produce during communism. Romania was exporting tennis shoes, bycicles, mattresses,  lightbulbs, motorcycles, and great other products which, compared to the present day product, are way better. This is the story of how consumerism destroyed a great production which would have made Romania competitive on the worldwide markets. As Romanian, I feld deep sorrow watching this documentary. It is a definitely must see, to understand communism, consumerism and Romanian history and culture.

The documentary offers a very natural and creative approach, solidly investigated which make you understand both the economic perspective and the historic perspective.You may watch it and take notes about how to make a proper documentary on a complex issue, even with low budget.

My rating: 9 / 10. A perfect documentary.

Enjoy watching it! See it in Romanian cinemas if it’s still available.

Fabled Enemies (2008)

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on June 15, 2011

Jason Bermas, a great documentary film director, makes a great case for understanding how the societies of the new millennium think and act, based on false presumptions. Seeing this excellent documentary, you will understand the mechanism of falsifying history and the implications of the historic attack on World Trade Center. You will understand, without a doubt, how all this was planned way ahead and proof that the World Trade Center buildings were intended to be the victims of an attack long before that happened. The similarity to the Pearl Harbor incident is striking.

My rating: 8 / 10 Masterpiece.

Enjoy watching it!

The Demographic Winter

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on July 13, 2010

This is one of the very best documentaries which explain the way in which the demography has a very powerful explanation over the economic crisis. We can understand the way in which the consuming power has enterted into a crisis worldwide and how is that a phenomenon that is the merely effect of tendencies which started some while ago. Watch the documentary until the end, there is also a very important conclusion after the credits (end of video 6). Also, you can read here [ro, php] on the effect this is having on Romanian population in perspective.

     
PS: I have re-published this article since last year it was one of the first articles, therefore not getting as much attention as deserved.
