Is it just me or do some shots of this mall look almost like Willamette mall? That said, holy shit is this depressing.

still five stars for the kind of fun you can have in an abandoned mall at night.

You prolly saw it, but there's a few snippets from the documentary in the link in the description. You get the gist, sorta.

Search for "POV Utopia part 3" on pbs.org. I'm in Canada and can watch it here.

kiint
lotta space in this mall
Xenocide
Oh God, that Teletubbie.

That sad, lonely Teletubbie.

How much does he have to drink every night to forget.
Caminante Nocturno
That Teletubbie does not work at the mall.

Nobody knows who he is or why he's there.

What do you want to bet that what couple really said was "people come hear to fuck."
THA SUGAH RAIN
Yeah thats exactly what i heard as well. In America, this place would be filled with teenagers fucking and smoking dope.

FABIO
This was shot horribly. There are maybe 3 shots in the entire thing that convey emptiness. The rest is full body shots of some dude walking or sitting down.
kingarthur
I can't help but picture people living in it.
splatterbabble
Ya'know, a highway or an airport really WOULD help. Maybe some commercials in Macau or Hong Kong.

It's not IN Guangzhou; Guangzhou is not a town that no one in the west has heard of.

I'm real pissed I didn't know about this thing when I was there. I could've gone and hung out there and watched the teletubbie.
glasseye
Yeah, that's the problem, it's way out in the suburbs.

The Townleybomb
A chilling vision of a postapocalyptic wasteland inhabited only by bootleg Teletubbies and bored security guards.
Goofy Gorilla
This reminds of that old Belgian comic La Tour. I can imagine some lonely employee in a remote section growing crops in the planters and raising birds.

Also I really like the smart-ass translator at the end.

This should be mandatory viewing for all Wal-Mart Republicans who still believe consumerism is the light of democracy to struggling nations and that China is an actual threat to be worried about.
cognitivedissonance
Also, if all American malls sell their cheap shit from China, where does China get it's cheap shit?

THA SUGAH RAIN
Well the thing is consumerism is focused on the consumer consuming. This place is focused on some blow job seeking personal grandeur and a government refusing to know when something has failed. Wal mart would never fuck up this badly.

I want to run around inside it. It would be like my very own Chinese Night of the Comet.

MBA-speak meets Party-speak around 10:45. It's just crazy...you expect it to be a military leader saying something about "our glorious nation" but it's a suit talking about corporate culture and brand building. Holy shit.
pastorofmuppets
10:30 actually. His title is public relations. Jesus.

pastorofmuppets
nvm the guy with the sign is the PR department.

But 12:41 has a banner that says
LARGE CHAIN BUSINESS INTERPRETATION OF QUALITY OF LIFE

It's like they are trying to teach us a lesson by horrifying us.

pastorofmuppets
Also I don't know if this works outside the US (probably not) but I was having trouble with the PBS Iowa site, so here's the address for the POV site: http://www.pbs.org/pov/utopia/

This largest mall in the world would have been more successful if it was built and operated by people who had actually built and operated a mall before.
