This documentary, though dry (VERY dry), cemented my belief that PR just programs you to want things you don't need, or believe things that aren't true

Another excellent documentary from Adam Curtis. Blows you away with the information provided! Simply Stunning!

Curits probably overstates some of the individual influences, but his thesis is still thought provoking and worth watching.

Extremely interesting even though it can be quite dry at times.

perhaps the most enlightening documentary i've seen in years. instead of just describing a system that is in place, it comprehensively determines how those systems developed.

it describes the cause of multiple contemporary social and political issues. it explains how the deficit crunch developed as an issue. why governments in europe and the us will have trouble implementing austerity measures. it is even pertinent in canada; it describes why left wing political parties have abandoned their core values and have instead sought to placate swing voters in the middle class (for instance, the BC NDP's abandonment of environmental issues to favour of lowered fees),

also, instead of painting the issue two dimensionally, it instead recognises the inherent complexities. really, i can't say enough about this documentary.
