Jasper Mall

Jasper Mall ★★★½

Not me feeling bad for this "cathedral to capitalism." It's all a metaphor, obviously, but even though shopping malls largely embody an unsustainable myth of cultural prosperity, the people that can be found inside of them are real human beings with real hopes and real dreams for whom the mall comes to stand in for something far more nebulous. While this documentary isn't necessarily a revolutionary eulogy of corporate capitalism as we know it, there's plenty of humanity to be found in it that makes it a worthwhile visit.
