Next film was The Yes Men. A well made, fairly straight documentary about a couple of very clever people. They have a web site, http://www.gatt.org/ which is a parody of the WTO site. This has led some people to invite them to conferences, which they attend and present subtle, or not, parodies of the WTO policies.

The documentary has an interesting style whereexplainations of what happened from the protagonists are intercut with footage of the event. That narrative works very well, it gives the impression that the Yes Men are very much in control of the whole thing. Even when there's chaos and disorganisation from an assumption that all of Europe is one time-zone :-).
