"this whole world is wild at heart and weird on top"

I'm a huge fan of Adam Curtis' work, especially The Century of the Self and It Felt Like a Kiss. All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace premiered earlier this spring and it brilliantly juxtaposes images, music, and interviews to dissect the very complicated narrative of the creation of our techno-utopia. Starring Ayn Rand, Bucky Fuller, Monica Lewinsky, Alan Greenspan, Dian Fossey and many more.

Part One: Love and Power
Part Two: The Use and Abuse of Vegetational Concepts
Part Three: The Monkey in the Machine and the Machine in the Monkey
