From The Booth
Directed by Michael Winterbottom
UK 2020 | 104 minutes
For years, Michael Winterbottom and Steve Coogan have had us laughing along with the crazy shenanigans of the “Trip” movies. Here, Mr. Coogan plays Brit billionaire Richard McCreadie, a clothing corporation tax scammer and tycoon of foreign sweatshops, planning his 60th birthday celebration on a Greek island now inhabited by a growing number of Syrian refugees. Like Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit, Greed takes a decidedly irreverent satirical poke at very serious social and moral ills infecting the world today. Greed offers 104 minutes of jaw-droppingly unbelievable bad behaviour, leaving audiences aghast with laughter and hopefully inspired to don their own superhero capes of moral outrage against sweatshop slavery and corporate malfeasance. Recommended.
