Adam Curtis: "Hypernormalisation" (2016) + BBC Radio Interview In which Curtis brings you up to date on the world you now actually live in. Including Trump. I have a few criticisms. Among them: Curtis flattens and conflates history in weird ways, such as the way he describes the internet and social media. Or most glaringly, that he basically pretends President Obama never existed. And the manner in which he describes the rise of what is not named as punk is...interesting.
