Editorial Reviews

Hosted by the two-time Academy Award® nominated actor and activist Woody Harrelson, ETHOS lifts the lid on a Pandora s box of systemic issues that has proven to have a negative impact in every aspect of our lives. From the environment, our democracy and our personal liberty to conflicts of interest in politics and unregulated corporate power, we cannot change our system until we know how it works. From director and activist Pete McGrain, ETHOS sheds light on how we can affect change. With interviews from influential thought-leaders including, author and activist Noam Chomsky (Manufacturing Dissent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media), Chalmers Johnson (Blowback: The Sorrows of Empire), Oscar® winning documentarian Michael Moore and Howard Zinn (A People s History of the United States) to name a few, ETHOS will show you how to make meaningful and sustainable change in order to create a world where we can live harmoniously in a clean environment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Wake up Call June 12, 2012
If a person is knowledgeable about how our government is run then this movie is same old, same old. However, the purpose,as I see it, is not to plant the seed of thought with a few of us, but to tap into, just a little, to those people who are
unable to think for themselves. Those persons dumb ed down by our public school system who never learned a critical thinking process or to think independently just may realize that everything said in this DVD is accurate and take this information as a wake up call. For example, most US citizens think the Federal Reserve is a government agency, they don't understand the Fed is owned by the banks and wall street and is a PRIVATE Corporation. It's one and only purpose is to make money for its owners and bankrupt the economy. This way we all are in debt up to our eye balls and spend our lives in poverty.(Large economic disruptions will start to occur in the very near future, as it has already started in Europe)

Basically this is a very good film to show in High School each and every year, so the students just might not be like their parents. Only able to follow, unable to think, and ready for serfdom without even realizing they have been had by a very smart government. Think of the peanut trick at the old carny.

If the producers of this film really want to get this message out to the masses, a web site should be available for free download and distribution. This approach might have a greater impact.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lays it out February 19, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Feel good that this movie is out in the world. I believe it showed the way of the world and gave us a way to change it. Money speaks in the world, but we have forgotten that we have a say. This gives us a way. Thanks, Woody.

i watched this movie with my wife the other night it, i already knew much of the content(because i gave up living in the matrix a few years ago) if people can watch with an open mind there is a really good message at the end. people that believe in what the media says will have trouble with this movie, mostly accepting that things aren't what the media says(they have their own agenda which is to keep us in the dark to whats really going on in the world). if you are grasping that something isn't feeling right in today's world this movie explains a lot.

Like many others in this digital generation raised by the media, I've recently begun to start searching for the truth in a lot of the mixed signals I'm seeing when I compare what I'm shown on TV, and what I actually see in real life (Ex: The economy, 9/11, the cycle of ongoing wars, etc). This movie is a testament to the passionate pursuit of truth, and is worth every minute of your time.
You may walk away a little depressed and saddened by the state of the world, but your eyes will be open, and you'll be a better person for it. Not just that, but you won't be a pawn anymore, not just another worthless consumer with blinders on, but someone who sees deeper than your average bear. It's well written, the message is clear, and the facts are many and presented well with style and high production values. I really enjoyed it and urge anyone who has a passive interest in real life to check it out as well, you won't be disappointed.

This is so much information and right on target! This confirms everything that we are seeing and everything that I have been thinking. We can take a look around us and see that everything mention here is truth!

Many are not awake and if you are one, view this and you will be awaken! If you are wondering about what is going on around you and in the world, Watch this and be informed and then take action!

Some of the action we have taking, is cutting off cable, (now we have Netflix, through our Roku and Logic Tech Revue this gives us better T.V. for a better price. We have our DVD collection, and we also have more local channels now that we have turned off the cable and replaced that with a antenna and converter box. This helps our pockets and keeps us from watching the trash that is now on T.V. There are some things we miss, but don't miss the cost. We stream sports and anything that is missing we look to the internet for it. We were tired of paying for trash T.V. and at the end of the year had nothing to show for all the money we were paying for T.V. This DVD confirmed we did the right thing and are on the right track with cutting down our consumption. Now we don't see all the advisement's that are discussed in this DVD to get you to spend spend!

We also stopped shopping with companies that don't support communities, nature, ones that are not responsible etc.. We have changed and are changing the way we do business with anyone. We will continue to work on our consumption rate as discussed in this documentary. We look for companies that are responsible and don't pollute the water, earth etc.

We have always grown our own food this way we can help the Vanishing Of Bees which is another great documentary to view!
