Consumed: Inside the Belly of the Beast (2011) is a thought-provoking documentary about the psychological roots of the modern consumer culture.

This narrative of our times discusses the roles that evolution and psychology play in modern consumerism and identifies the "unhealthy dose of pathos" that links humans to our consumer tendencies.

The film features interesting 20th-century archival footage as well as interviews with ecologists, psychologists, designers, and experts in sustainability.
