British filmmaker Adam Curtis made one of the best and most fascinating documentaries in years, called “HyperNormalization” (or “HyperNormalisation” in British), which shows our modern life from a different aspect, and its roots.

The 2 hour and 40 minute documentary, originally aired on BBC last year, deals with such diverse aspects as the the decaying New York city in 1975, to modern day supercomputers, to social media and its effects on our culture.

Curtis’ narration, coupled with ambient electronic music from the likes of Aphex Twin and exceptional editing, makes for a film that’s as much as experience as it is a documentary.
