This documentary is all about connecting the dots. Zeitgeist looks into some of the worlds largest institutions and governments and divides them into their primary parts: Religion: Pagan astrological beliefs which reveals some interesting connections between the ancient world and the modern one.
Zeitgeist also looks into significant events over the last couple of decades and raises a number of important questions about them.
Looking at the documentary from an entertainment point of view i still really enjoyed it. However everything that i believed before watching this film still stands true.
The real problem with this movie is that no sources are ever presented. Because of that, my opinion on the subjects presented remain unchanged. Like I am forced to take the word of this film and its barrage of facts with no proof of any of it... which would make me no different than the person who mindlessly believes in christianity or watches fox news. While it was entertaining, at the end i kinda felt duped. I mean, the arguments were convincing.. but if you're using made up or make believe facts.. you can practically convince someone of anything (which is likely this films real message). And that imo is what this movie, christianity, fox news, mainstream media etc. does. I watched this in hopes that herein would lie truths, like someone put in the work and that i would be in for a real expose, but by the end of the film i realized it was just another agenda on a soapbox pushing its message at all costs.
i can see, if you disagree with the different aspects of this film, why you would be furious with what was presented. I'm thinking maybe that is why in large part this film was ever even created. A slap in the face to those who have opposing viewpoints..the same way those who think christianity brainwashes, those who think all behind the scene facts on 9-11 and banking are never truly revealed. It's like a slap back, trying to pull the covers back on that opposing view, inducing fury in those so that they feel the need to dispute these facts as mere claims.. and then asking.. isn't it ironic?
