crackling good fun - and serious biting stuff
17 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I ENJOY A DOC WITH INCISIVE WIT. It was thought provoking and laugh-making. I particularly liked the attack on consumerism/ pop art. The sixties were a long-awaited break from the stuffiness that went before but change isn't all progress as this documentary so ably demonstrated. Le Corbusier did get more of his way with the suburbs of French cities and we can now see the end result of that. Many English cities were also blighted with impoverished landscapes of system-built high rise. These 'townscapes' were also designed in craven submission of the car. More affluence led to more consumerism and the fetishism of having new everythings. Pop music, the great invention of the decade, was also as bad as it was good. Still like the Kinks though...
