Adam Curtis is back with a new film, Can't Get You Out Of My Head: An Emotional History of the Modern World

Can't get you out of my head

By far, our favourite documentary film maker is Adam Curtis.

Curtis has an uncanny ability to produce addictively compelling visual narratives effectively out of news footage.

For some time now he has been rather quiet; subtly we suspect doing some work with the 90's underground band Massive Attack (who also have a link with British street artist Banksy.

But Adam Curtis is back with a new film, Can't Get You Out Of My Head: An Emotional History of the Modern World. that debuts on BBC iPlayer today - and here's the trailer to whet your appetite.

Here's a deeper discussion as to what the docu-series is all about.

Curtis' criticism is much like my own - when we consider the primary narratives sold to us by those in power, about the future of the world, none of them present an alternative view of the future of the world that isn't dystopian.

Where are the better futures?

Why are leaders not bold enough to share a preferable vision of the world? Why?

This is now the only thing I want to watch.
