A quick note while watching (halfway through with the feed paused as I type): the Curtis documentary is one helluva time capsule hitting all the keys for the ‘Boomers’ now in the process of passing the western torch to perhaps drug-addled or money-crazed (or both) next population of inhabitants of the democracies. Of course, things are not going so well, at least depending on one’s perspective and the sources of experience and observation that produces it. Modern? Hypermodern? Post-modern? Or not modern at all but a grinding mechanical Orwellian nightmare? Who knows? Who would know? Anyone?
