With all of the problems you encounter in your daily life, it can be difficult to have a good laugh now and then. Viewlorium.com understands this fact and helps you greet the New Year on a more positive note through its Comedy Week, where streamers can watch free movies online, including satire. Laughter’s not always about amusement though; sometimes, it’s all about recognising the foibles of other people and holding them in contempt. To this end, the free Internet streaming service includes two choice satires for you to shake your head at:
Swimsuit: The Movie. Ever get uncomfortable about the culture of sex all around you? This mockumentary skewers the idea of sex selling everything by showing a fictional chemical company trying to “sex things up” by producing a swimsuit catalog – a product which it isn’t even selling, though what they do sell is everything from toxic water to toilet paper. A fun satire of the obsession with sex that advertisers seems to have.
Through a Fisheye. A lot of people remember the Enron collapse of the early 2000s, and this film is a pointed look at that collapse via the trials and travails of Fred Manfrey as the forces of good and evil intervene in his life.
