The Trap

March 9th, 2007

Robotperson regulars will know what a big fan I am of Adam Curtis’ 2005 documentary The Power of Nightmares. It was a superb look at how American neoconservatism dovetails with radical Islamism (watch it here – that’s an order).

This Sunday Curtis is back. The Trap – whatever happened to our freedom? is a three-parter, and from the sounds of that prĂ©cis, it neatly covers the ground between Nightmares and The Century of the Self, another Curtis mindblower about the invention of consumerism and the subsequent debasement of politics.

The Trap is a must-watch. 2100, Sunday everyone; fingers ready on the record button please.
