Some of our favorite docus

The Power of Nightmares

with one comment

The first docu I post is made by Adam Curtis, one of my favourite documantary makers for his deep political and philosophical insight.

Its a three part documentary nicely crafted and researched. From Wikipedia:

The films compare the rise of the Neo-Conservative movement in the United States and the radical Islamist movement, making comparisons on their origins and claiming similarities between the two. More controversially, it argues that the threat of radical Islamism as a massive, sinister organised force of destruction, specifically in the form of al-Qaeda, is a myth perpetrated by politicians in many countries—and particularly American Neo-Conservatives—in an attempt to unite and inspire their people following the failure of earlier, more utopian ideologies.
