Adam Curtis' "Bitter Lake" - exclusive to iPlayer for four weeks since yesterday...

Subject matter pretty much too big to pass cogent judgement after only one viewing and no time to absorb it, but it's fucking weighty for sure...

As a film it's possibly a fraction long and self-indulgent stylistically but it tells a powerful and intricate story powerfully and clearly enough which is no mean feat.

8.5/10 - needs another viewing though
