I agree with almost everything you say about the documentary. It really is materialistic. There is a great message in that film and it's kind of sad that they had to hide the message by appealing to people's sense of greed and materialism.
I do have a question though... You mentioned having a desire to help others. That to me is probably one of the most important things you can do while we are here on this earth. So... What if you applied the principles of that documentary to trying to help others rather than trying to obtain a bunch of stuff?
