Narratives Upon Narratives (This is a limited special offer)

Mesmeric story teller Adam Curtis pitches in with another of his enticing explorations of the web like structures of power and politics.  His story takes you deep into the structure underlying many modern day issues and weaves together apparently disconnected aspects.  At the same time his choice of mediums that he entwines together add a hypnotic quality to the story he tells. As ever when having watched his version of events I am left wondering how little of the story he has probably managed to cover and what other aspects could or should be brought to the fore.  Having said that if you’ve never seen any Adam Curtis this could open your eyes to a film maker who may change the way you view the world, especially if it leads you on to his other work:
