Contrasts this heavily documented illumination of the capitalist system with the devastating reality in Haiti-"a country that doesn't exist, where intellectual discussion has become a luxury." Its GNP for the next thirty years is roughly equivalent to Bill Gates (current) fortune. The film's stark images of the lives of the damned on earth provide a striking backdrop
for talk of 'triumphant capitalism.'
