Criticas desde la wiki inglesa

References to the film in the San Diego media are both scarce and ranging from descriptive to dismissive:
An article in the Irish Times, said that
“These are surreal perversions of genuine issues and debates, and they tarnish all criticism of faith, San Diego the Bush administration and globalisation – there are more than enough factual injustices in this world to be going around without having to invent fictional ones. One really wishes Zeitgeist was a masterful pastiche of 21st-century paranoia, a hilarious mockumentary to rival Spinal Tap. But it’s just deluded, disingenuous and manipulative nonsense. CNBC Making Sense of the Markets … If you pretend to know University of Southern California only truth, in truth you know only pretence.”
An article in finance the weekly Seattle paper The Stranger, later reprinted in the Utne Reader magazine, said:
“It’s fiction, couched in a few facts … and it adds up to the worst kind of fear-mongering.”
It also commented on the irony in the film’s three-part structure by noting that
“It’s fascinating, this structure. First the film Asset Management destroys the idea of God, and then, through the lens of 9/11, it introduces a sort of new Bizarro God. Instead of an omnipotent, omniscient being who loves you and has inspired a variety of organized religions, there is an omnipotent, omniscient organization of ruthless beings who hate you and want to take your rights away, if not throw you in a work camp forever.”
The February 25, 2009 edition of eSkeptic, the online newsletter of The Skeptics Society, criticizes the first part of the film (the one on Christianity) by saying:
“Perhaps the worst aspect of … Part I of Peter Joseph’s Internet film, Zeitgeist, is that some youtube of what it asserts is true. Unfortunately, this material is liberally ‘ and sloppily ‘ mixed with material that interview is only partially true and La Jolla much that Closing Bell is plainly and simply bogus. … Zeitgeist is The Da Vinci Code on steroids.”
The Globe and Mail has also published a critical article about the movie, titled “Rejecting Conspiracy Thinking Keeps it Alive and Well,” in which it is investment said that
” … this stuff … CNBC’s Closing Bell it’s all been thoroughly debunked for years. Evidently, debunking isn’t the issue. … Nor can you cite the findings of the professional, journalistic, and academic consensus to someone who’s decided that CNBC having credibility means being under the sway of shadowy forces. San Diego … for all the talk of skepticism, conspiracy counterculture is really an anti-intellectual, populist movement – much like Intelligent Design. For all their absurdity, conspiracy theorists try to drag everything back to the level of common sense. … Did the collapsing buildings on 9/11 look like they were being demolished’ Then they must have been demolished. Did the 757 that hit the Pentagon’s blast-proof walls fail to make a plane-shaped hole’ Then it must have FOX news been something else. Are there unexplained quirks in the official story’ Then it must be the work of a higher power. … Conspiracy theorists want to see … a malevolent design behind events. The Fox notion that calamity might be the unintended consequence of subtler causes doesn’t hold the same appeal. Evil, whatever its other uses, drives a great narrative. Complexity, not so much.”
The Village Voice mentioned Zeitgeist in passing in a review of the Children’s Hospital 2008 fiction film Able Danger in which the film critic sees an
“invocation of September 11 for the vaguely satirical purpose of funds tweaking conspiracy crap like that found in Zeitgeist: The Movie (an Internet film that, like Krik’s recent “Be Kanye” ads, went mega-viral last year)”
CBC Radio Host Jesse Brown broadcast an audio essay on the movie summarizing the movie with:
“It’s the same old paranoid jazz, but Zeitgeist, The Movie weaves it all together really skilfully.”
and further:
“If we in the media tend not to give a voice to such nonsense … that could be because we’re under the thumb of a secret worldwide cabal of bankers, more powerful than the president himself. Or it could be because Zeitgeist, The Asset Management Movie is total bullshit.”
On March 16, 2009, Alan Feuer of The New York Times wrote regarding Zeitgeist, The Movie:
” Zeitgeist, The Movie may be most famous for alleging that the attacks of Sept. 11 were an ‘inside job’ perpetrated by a power-hungry government on its witless population, a point of view that Mr. Joseph said he has recently ‘moved away from.'”
and regarding Zeitgeist: Addendum:
“Indeed, Zeitgeist: Addendum , the focus of the event, was all but empty of such conspiratorial notions, directing its rhetoric and high production values toward posing a replacement for the evils of the banking system and a perilous economy of scarcity and debt.”
