Last night I went to a showing of the film Zeitgeist at Claris Sports Club. Tom had already downloaded the movie so I had already seen most of it once.

I am not yet sure what I think about it... there is a lot to take in.

There were about 25-30 people at the club to see the film and some of the reactions were interesting to watch/listen to.

Part of me wishes I hadn't seen it at all... I don't want to have to think about it... It's too confronting... I don't want to have to make a call on whether I believe what its saying.... I don't want to believe that there are people in this world so consumed by greed they have no regard for the rest of us except as a means to further their own wealth...

and what exactly am I meant to do about it anyway?

But... I have seen it... and it keeps popping into my head .... and I keep thinking about it... and even though I don't really want to, I think I might have to watch it a few more times to get my head around it... I guess that's the point.

Yes, I understand you fully. I have also watched the second movie (Zeitgeist: Addendum), witch claims to give the solution regarding what should you do.
Whether you believe what they say or not... well... I think the point of the movie is that you and only you should do some research and find out. But one thing is true anyway: parts of this movie pop in your head now and then, especially when watching the news about war in Iraq or the financial crisis, etc...
