The Power of Nightmares: The Rise of the Politics of Fear (2004)

Adam Curtis

Adam Curtis, britanski autor koga sam totalno zapostavio, i jedan od njegovih najčuvenijih radova o manipulaciji na globalnom nivou. (3 x 60 min)


"The Power of Nightmares, subtitled The Rise of the Politics of Fear, is a BBC documentary film series, written and produced by Adam Curtis. The series consists of three one-hour films, consisting mostly of a montage of archive footage with Curtis’s narration, which were first broadcast in the United Kingdom in late 2004 and have been subsequently aired in multiple countries and shown in several film festivals, including the 2005 Cannes Film Festival.

In May 2005, Adam Curtis was quoted as saying that 94% of e-mails to the BBC in response to the film were supportive. Entertainment Weekly described the film as “a fluid cinematic essay, rooted in painstakingly assembled evidence, that heightens and cleanses your perceptions” while Variety called it “a superb, eye-opening and often absurdly funny deconstruction of the myths and realities of global terrorism.” The San Francisco Chronicle had an equally enthusiastic view of the film and likened it to “a brilliant piece in the Atlantic Monthly that’s (thankfully) come to cinematic life.” The New York Times had a more skeptical review, unimpressed by efforts to compare attacks on Bill Clinton by American conservatives with Islamist revolutionary activities and claiming “its understanding of politics, geo- and national, can seem curiously thin.”

The film was awarded a BAFTA in the category of “Best Factual Series” in 2005. Additional awards were given by the Director’s Guild of Great Britain and the Royal Television Society."
