The Power of Adam Curtis

Adam Curtis, documentary film-maker for the BBC, has become a hero of mine. For me this is the zenith of storytelling. There is such a creeping wonder to his use of archive footage and quick edits to provide imagery for his narrative. Add to that stories that are spellbinding in themselves.

Check out the intro to his series of films, The Power of Nightmares. It’s hypnotic.
