This film gathers information from many sources and puts it together in a way that shows it is possible for people to be manipulated by large institutions, governments and economic powers. It is divided into 3 parts.
1. Religion: Pagan astrological beliefs compared to modern and ancient religions.
2. 9/11: An overview of the numerous questionable aspects of this immensely important event.
3. The Federal Reserve Bank: A history of its formation and ability to control the economy. With many news clips from tragic events in history, audio excerpts from those who believe people are being misled about the level of freedom they have.
"Some films seek to entertain. "Zeitgeist" seeks to inform. This sociological documentary contains a wealth of facts. And these facts function to support its overall message; namely, that powerful, societal institutions, through action and speech, control individuals in unimagined ways. For what purpose? Power. The film singles out religious institutions, government institutions, and financial institutions.
The film's first segment, 28-minutes in duration, is unparalleled in its succinct yet potent discussion of religion, and its relation to history and current culture. Splendid narration, background music, and visuals make this segment spellbinding. But more importantly, the message is factual and nothing short of profound.
The segments on government and financial institutions are scarcely less significant. The focus is on the 9/11 tragedy at the World Trade Center. Viewers who adhere to the official line will no doubt protest. But they cannot alter the facts that point to a conspiracy of powerful institutional leaders. The banking/financial segment follows suit with a similarly scathing critique.
"Zeitgeist" hammers television. From the film "Network" (1976), the character Howard Beale shouts the evils of the "boob-tube"; "Television is not the truth; television is an ... amusement park"; its output is designed to keep you in a distracted, naive bubble.
The film is not perfect. Discussion of 9/11 will eventually make the film dated. The first four-minute segment is sleep inducing. A few spots of filler could have been replaced with further critiques of the media. And most importantly, what the film calls "lies" (as a noun) in some instances could be replaced with the word "ignorance". Yet, whether the evil is ignorance or lies, the end result is the same.
Ordinarily, these imperfections would reduce my rating from a perfect score of ten. But the overall message of "Zeitgeist" is so profound and the presented facts so stunning that I cannot justify a score less than the highest possible." -Written by Lechuguilla on IMDb.com
