Rarely catches something of the modern and it is the creation of drew thoroughly. "But first about the money." Surprised fees. Then do people have not as people whether distributors "accidentally" drove past the slightly ajar behind the scenes of the American dream. And the film is not devoid of subtle things that make for a fairly predictable plot, is hidden something more substantial. All a success story on my opinion, fades into bought than the history of the person.

Ray Kroc bravely endures the futility of their undertakings, although the brink of despair have close. But in the abyss of monotony, he sensed a real opportunity. For 52 years, he was able to keep the main thing — touch.

Despite the recognition of the protagonist before the true founder of McDonald's N1, not believe I am its original deceit. He grabbed a chance. On first sight of extreme drama in his life. It is not poor, lives in the house, has a car, not have problems with health. Perhaps financial Affairs in the last time went a little worse, but a clear hint of the threat of poverty we can not see. Except that stack of coins payphone... There is another threat, she the main character is perceived sharper — risk of failure to implement in life. Not a thirst for success, and fear of failure to implement on the background more aggressively approaching sunset. Ambitions him in the blood, but they are only the fuel for something greater than himself. Flags and crosses, that America is full. He just not interested to be good and righteous on the background of a modest life, friendly, giving way to the young and rolling in the side of life. He need more, need a scale and he found. Yes, this reversal was based on a lot of unpleasant for others: self-centeredness, ingratitude, deceit...

Amid the sprouting wolf's teeth in the main character is the soul of the viewer so and reaches out to brothers. And they are really in a lot more clean, complementary parts of one whole. They can be considered a naive, accused of the lack of strategic thinking, inability to negotiate. But not quite so. They are a great team and visionary enough. They it was more important to keep yourself in this matter than the scale. They are not against growth, but does not run headlong. If milkshake — means of milk, not powder. If not clear how to make beef — clearly not necessary to open a new point. But not sure what would be like brothers in how they lose. Ambiguity somehow significantly undermined the ideal. To cherish the name, and then to sell. The earthiness took over. This choice can be understood, to find in it the logic, to justify, in many respects justified, but it is already there is no will to something greater.

Without the women's field even the most successful and rich background would be a fresh. Two women, two stage of life. Maturation with one and the laurels of success with the other. Scene with a cocktail as the quintessence of eroticism and business. One of the problems of the business is overcome by a surrogate decision, but in the hands of Joan powder cocktail becomes as a real one. Foam on her lips, glass on the background of the neckline... Bravo to the Director and the actors. Where is the business? And though ray think about it, and even would not dare. while the courage to be a qualitative step in the direction of the economy. But enchanted by an original presentation, he has the flag idea for my Muse in business and destroying the wall of the ban brothers McDonald's.

It would seem at the end of the ray can admire the only one who in a Chapter of life puts a success, for whom the concepts of honor, nobility, and other or not, or have to them price. But is in this is one trait that impresses even the notorious moralist. Perseverance? No, take it deeper. Vaccinated fear unrealized, ray is not afraid of death and loves life. It can be assumed that love surrogate, ugly, but it is what it myself. Ray does not dissolve in ambiguity, he it to the end. Whether this sequence guarantees success — not at all. I can you imagine drunken Rei, milled to a heart attack or imprisonment of more sophisticated business tycoons, nakatannyh alive in concrete by gangsters, but I can you imagine a ray that will is "no" and forever put up with it.

You never noticed, starting to see or know someone's success story — we will serve the person prevoznemogaya life's difficulties and failures in the recognition other problems are that naturally always lead it to success.

Undoubtedly, throwing dice, again never be you will certainly sooner and later you will get six that we call luck. However, in these stories, we never tell about many other "MacDonalds", flying from distance, remaining nothing, originally a native who believed that persistence — success.

In my opinion, people — being changeable and for this investigation, a quick burnout to bright ideals, we don't expect anything except disappointment and entry into the grey ranks of the losers. Consequently, all similar stories, only opium for the desperate, but intermediate, instead of the creation of the revolution, blindly trying to get rich on already jaded sites, not even knowing the correct principle of persuasion when your first the client must be "Your", and not just another filler list "failed".

Undoubtedly, a series of failures led our hero to the acquaintance with brothers, presenting a later — in a vile light emotionless business sharks, not considered the interests of honest people, but more about this later. Now our clean-shaven hero encouraged and inspired new perspectives. He stubbornly goes at the prepared, like him, the path to glory — without compromising the principles of the masterminds of the original MacDonalds.

Everywhere, here to me comes the dilemma: a who was made this movie? To whom dedicated? Not promise whether it goal — to produce a cynical deception among future builders business? Not the face Mature if we are the original anti-advertising? Because the CROC appears here antagonist that just not affect the growth of a positive attitude to the company. However, the beginning of the evil Empire was laid. Brothers, do not knowing released the mythical Kraken on freedom, inconsolable employee objectives to cut down health descendants, billions of tons of innocent lives and the contents of our wallets, scarcely responding to the principle of "Quality over quantity".

The moral of the story is.

1. In the business world no place for emotions.

2. You can't trust anyone.

3. Man, which money — that's the priority, not look into your broken tub in future direction.

4. How do you wouldn't flew — don't forget to what you crawled.

Somehow our homegrown distributors decided not to give the "Founder" road to a massive audience and they banned him.

Think this is a crime against humanity, for "Vilna cash" is almost every capital yard, and there is nothing seditious in a biopic about the formation of the Corporation the name of the two brothers, the founders.

Trailer to revel in not is, so C. it is a false route bias a Comedy than in fact "the Founder" is not is.

But is it story how was found three old — guys who were already far. Two sold hamburgers at invented technology fast food and maintenance the restaurant named after himself, and three ray Kroc (Michael Keaton, he also Batman versions of movies from 90), not very successful salesman, selling mixers and at leisure, listening to a motivating speech about the power of positive thinking and perseverance. And would be in the summer of this mediocre restaurant, but the indefatigable energy of the sales Manager of ray's still got the fast food Corporation in various lists "most-most" in the version of your Forbes.

If the feel that Michael Keaton fiercely replays, it will definitely dosidate to the final credits to see live performances of the ray crock — after you will appreciate how good the actor entered the image. Armored locomotive it draws a story of the near spouse and those two inert brethren. Not know how close to the reality shows corporate conflict between the parties, but according to the Hollywood confrontation "CROC VS the Brothers" is a struggle between progress and stagnation. Despite the successful restaurant concept, the founders of the first diner dick and Mac he ventured out of his comfort zone and to develop a personal brand than literally delirious alien salesman. While CROC was wound around the States, promoting "Golden arches", the brothers calmly had their own little gesheft without claims a windfall. As a natural result, enterprising merchant using "sleight of hand and no fraud" squeezed short-sighted fellow of the business, assuming the title of Founder. And made a modest diner that machine we all know today. Leaving the scenes of the small fact that thanks to the business model, the current McDonald's is not so much burgers as one of the largest owners of real estate in world.

As a native of Hollywood a wide audience, the film shows the Corporation only with the positive side. In tape no place references to low-paid labor; obesity; as the investigation; the confrontation with the anti-globalists and periodic attacks in restaurants. And also reduced the achievements of other individuals that in addition to the Kroc made a significant contribution in the development of the Empire of fast food.

The less energetic image of an elderly businessman, who time goes by cinema monologues, will always keep in mind the idea that all our hands, so they cannot be omitted. And will add a few hackneyed tenets, like "to begin never late" or that "success — it is 1% talent and 99% perseverance."

The film is well motivated, so viewing recommended.
