Funny, informative and.. worrisome
23 October 2016 | by (Zagreb, Croatia) – See all my reviews

The new watchdogs - a documentary about the very, very.. very close and personal ties of the French "independent, pluralist and objective" media with the academic, political, and corporate financial sector - crucial for understanding the mechanisms behind the reproduction of the dominant belief system and why a change of paradigm is.. a challenge..

Since Bourdieu and co, media criticism is almost a trivial exercise, but this film gives it a massive boost. In a fast paced style, and with entertaining "special effects", Gilles Balbastre and Yannick Kergoat dig into the archives of the French media landscape and demonstrate the complicity of the ruling classes in manipulating the public - send shivers down your spine!
