  • Pulsing with incredulity and dread, it's less a fully developed argument than the seed of one.

  • Videocracy is a fascinating film, indicative of the new wave of scorn and revulsion felt by a younger generation of Italians for Berlusconi's smug and mediocre rule.

  • Videocracy makes spooky comedy of a nation's addiction to fame.

  • Gandini's voiceover is a little ponderous, but, aptly for a film about the primacy of the image, he lets the pictures, many of them deliberately awkward tableaux, others bordering on absurdist, do most of the work.

  • The combination of terrific footage with a low, rumbling score of doom makes this a compelling horror show.

  • Less than the sum of its parts; colorful, but not quite a forceful enough inquisition into the go-go, power-grab pop intersection of fame, tabloidism and information management to connect in lasting emotional fashion.

Audience Reviews for Videocracy

  • Nov 19, 2011
    "Videocracy" starts by showing the inherent superiority of European television over its American counterpart. Sadly, the documentary does not see it that way as it seems to think any undressing on television leads immediately to "Caligula."(Relax, it's not like Hugh Hefner is running the country or anything...) All of which is laid at the feet of now former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi(why couldn't he have held on for another couple of weeks?) and his vast media empire which controls 90% of the television stations in Italy which on the face of it is very, very bad. But the documentary is less interested in his government's policies than in fame and reality programs which are not just an Italian problem but a worldwide plague. Even worse, the filmmakers in pure amateur hour fashion do not even come close to connecting the dots.
