Rhizomatic threads for a friend #1

Adam Curtis, who is one of the most interesting film-makers in/from the UK at the moment, produces these fascinating documentary/filmic essays where he trawls the archives and retells histories that lie just under our consciousness.  His BBC blog is over here http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/adamcurtis/ [2] and some of his films seem to be available via this blog (http://adamcurtisfilms.blogspot.co.uk/ [3]) and over here (http://thoughtmaybe.com/by/adam-curtis/ [4]).

‘It felt like a kiss’ and ‘The century of the self’ are both great.  On his blog there was also this fascinating essay on the interface between ghost stories and the tv – http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/adamcurtis/posts/the_ghosts_in_the_living_room [5]

There is an amusing criticism (‘he’s all style over substance’) over here (http://youtu.be/x1bX3F7uTrg [6]) which is witty (if a little light on content itself).
