Indonesia is full of so many contradictions in so many different ways but this place takes the cake.

Here’s some positive and educational viewing for some down time:

I’m only 2 hours into this 3 1/2 hour series but I’m already compelled to recommend it highly.

It pulls back the curtain on how nation’s - and transnational ideologies - consciously control public narratives which allows them to alter the direction of society without the people revolting or even being any wiser of the occurrence.

If you’ve ever wondered why “ diversity “ and “ multiculturalism “ arose from nowhere to be espoused as non- negotiable values from such morally bereft associations such as the LNP and their political cousins worldwide and why the same values have replaced traditional respect for encumbent working class populations amongst the political parties which formerly represented these people.....here is your answer.

Some are in denial that an ideology such as neoliberalism could be imposed globally through concerted effort by a determined sect . Here is proof of previous instances where people have been manipulated into believing that an artificially imposed ideology has arisen organically and the way that the public is conditioned to support policies which are against their own best interests.

If you’ve ever wondered just how the ALP came to become some of the most fervent supporters of the neoliberalism and globalisation which is the enemy of their fundamental voter base then this series is essential viewing.

If you’ve ever wondered exactly how we came to be in the ridiculous position where people believe that requesting immigrants to assimilate into the culture which welcomes them is now considered offensive and racist......this is how the process is applied.

If you’re questioning how it came to be that openly discussing the appropriateness of allowing a merciless Communist dictatorship to operate unhindered in its attempts to alter our democracy came to be considered racist....here is how those globalists with no regard for the well being of the citizens of sovereign Western nations gain support from those who have the most to lose.

https://youtu.be/eJ3RzGoQC4s

Also very relevant to the sudden about face of several Western nations regarding China and how respective populations are now being girdled and the manufacturing of support for an impending confrontation.

Indeed , it is the engineering of consent.

Adam Curtis!

Funny, he gets a mention on the first page of this thread...5 years ago.

(As does Peaches fucking the pain away!)

Better late than never.

Anyway, don't let this dodgy and bodgy 'reading' of his doco put you off, people.

His whole body of work is worth a considered look.

Considered!

Just finished watching Tiger King on Netflix.

"Murder, mayhem, and madness".....errr yep.

It's a roarin' tale that is disturbingly true.
I.e you couldn't make this shit up.

They got the title wrong though.

It should have been named Tiger Queen.

Worth a watch.

Loving "The Money Heist" on Netflix

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Money_Heist

Best series I've seen for a long time, but I'm a full sucker for heist/bank robbery/gangster type movies (also dig road trip movies)

Good show that one indo. Kinda weird with the over dubbed English but it still works, and there is some great characters in it.

Apparently when they released it in Spain it was pretty much written off by the 2nd season.

Then Netflix got a hold of it.

Also got sucked in to watching Extraction on Netflix.

Truth be told, up until about a year ago I didn't know who Chris Hemsworth was. Never heard his name, never seen any movies or TV shows he was in. Turns out he surfs pretty good! And seems to be paying the bills OK in the film biz. 

Didn't really rate the movie though there's stacks of action, and one Jason-Bourne-esque car chase in the middle (twelve minutes, one unbroken camera shot, apparently) that was pretty speccy. 

Otherwise, it felt as if I was watching a film version of some kind of commando X-box game.

crg - I reckon it would have been unreal in the normal docco format. But, it was a live recording of a theatre show they did, where Mike D and Ad-Rock were up on stage, essentially talking eveyone through various images and clips. Just broke the bubble a bit, seeing them mature-age, talking normally about all of the wild stuff they did. Kinda softened the perspective.

Watched Michael Moores new one yesterday(below) which is stirring up quite a bit of controversy and not what id expect from him (or for him to be involved with)

Maybe it has a few holes in it, doesn't deal with some aspects, but i can see the basis of the films point especially on things like bio fuels.

Just watched this other video on response to critics also interesting.

Never had any interest in basketball. As such, I've been skipping the Netflix recommendations for "The Last Dance" (about Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls) over the last few weeks.

But, I succumbed the other night. And it turns out, the docco is actually quite fascinating.

Probably the most interesting thing is that I kinda see - as a non-basketball fan, watching a basketball docco - how non-surfers might look at Kelly. And there's a lot of parallels between Kelly and Michael too, they're both GOAT, well spoken, great ambassadors for the sport etc. 

Still only half way through but looking forward to the last few episodes.

Great doco, probably more about leadership and personality styles for me than just a sports doco.
Was just comparing MJ to KS the other day and spoke about that desire to win and how strong it is in some people...

I did like Wake in fright, remember reading the book as a youngster.

Dirt Music movie in production sounds good but how can the midwest cray coast be shot in esperance?

SBS on demand has 'Withnail and I' showing, excellent british cult movie if you havent seen it. People either love it or hate it. Worth a watch. Just like chook with his wake in fright quotes, Withnail quotes are non stop.

Withnail and I is one of those endlessly quotable classics. And a helluva drinking game film, along with Wake in Fright (where you all match the characters drink for drink...well, in volume not type of beverage!)

Watched another Aussie flick the other night, again from a novel, Monkey Grip. Great snapshot of a time and place, warts n all. Recommended.
