ALL WATCHED OVER BY MACHINES OF LOVING GRACE

The best way to spend your Black Friday is seeing British cinematic polymath Adam Curtis', All Watched Over By Machines of Loving Grace. His latest film is a harrowing look at capitalism and colonialism through Curtis' trademark archival BBC footage and pop music collage. The film is made up of three sections exploring the idea that rose up in the 1990s that computers could create a new kind of stable world—a world where a new kind of global capitalism could thrive free of all risk. The best kind of capitalist horror movie, Adam Curtis examines ideas from disparate strands of society and shows how eerily connected they are through the shaky joint logic of political, technological, and scientific thought. It'll put a healthy fear of capitalism in you and, in all likelihood, prevent you from enjoying Black Friday ever again. 180 minutes, video. Note early start time!
