How all of us have become Richard Nixon

Posted by Paul Ayres on 10 February 2010

Adam Curtis asserts that we are all paranoid weirdos in a film for Charlie Brooker’s Newswipe.

I love the way Curtis pulls together disparate threads and presents them using fast cut archive footage like this, even when his thesis is rather shaky in places.

Luckily I was told that I was paranoid weirdo by some very kind girls when I was teenager, so I have known about my nascent Nixondom for some 20 years 😉

  1. Thanks for finding this, Paul. I was glad to see this broadcast: food for thought even if I don’t totally agree with it.
