We've reported severaltimes on Robert Greenwald's Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price, a documentary designed to jab deep at the reigning discount retailer; now comes word that the Wal-Mart camp is supporting another film, to be released around the same time, that shows the opposing side of the story. Ron and Robert Galloway financed their $85,000 Why Wal-Mart Works: And Why That Drives Some People C-r-a-z-y themselves, without help from the chain, but Wal-Mart, who gave the Galloways the kind of access that Greenwald was denied, is pointing to C-r-a-z-y in their effort to denounce Greenwald's expose as "propaganda". Whereas High Cost focuses on Wal-Mart's "unsavory business practices", the Galloway film intends to present evidence that presenting that the Wal-Mart employer-worker relationship is actually a super sunshiney happy one, whilst "examining 'the pathology' behind the escalating attacks on the company". High Cost will screen at the American Film Mart next week; C-r-a-z-y premieres on November 10 in Wal-Mart's hometown of Bentonville, Arkansas.
