The web site says 95 minutes, I think.

I would have picked this film: http://movies.yahoo.com/shop?d=hv&cf=info&id=1808565671&intl=us
just because it effects everyone, trogs included. Kudos for someone stepping to the plate to start showing worthy films in our community that are educational for folks who do not take the time to read up on what is actually transpiring in this nation and beyond.

You've got to check out Jib Jab's latest: "Big Box Mart." Pretty much sums up everything you need to know in about 2mins...and is utterly hilarious.

Wal mart is the epitome of the exploiter of the proletariat.
