Summary
Today a new generation of philosophers, economists, political activists, and sociologists is returning to Karl Marx's ideas in order to try to make sense of the global economic and financial crisis of 2008 - and to consider whether a world without or beyond capitalism is possible. Could it be that communism might provide the solution to the growing economic and environmental challenges facing the planet? Marx Reloaded explores the possibilities through interviews with leading thinkers at the forefront of a popular revival in Marxist and communist ideas and with skeptics of this revival. Animation sequences - a parody of The Matrix that traces Marx's adventures through the matrix of his own ideas - add a quirky touch of lightness to the film.
