Hypernormalisation. Adam Curtis. 2016. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Gaddafi stuff works better than Assad stuff, but the material that's to do w/ foreign relations between the West & Middle East never fully gels w/ the larger vision of modernity as hyperreality. I'd like a more comprehensive look at Syria, & also Russia (Surkov is very deus ex machina how he fits perfectly w/ Curtis's argument). LOVED the DISASTER MOVIE soundtracked by Dream Baby Dream crashing into footage of 9/11.
