The Documentarian

Although there are many a bone NF has to pick with Adam Curtis's spin on the nature of the state of the world, it is undeniable that anyone familiar with his oeuvre will not be thoroughly disabused of the notion that the technocratic impulses of scientists and economists are free from deeply embedded, almost-unconscious ideological biases; or that at least the manner of their use in human societies is impervious to abuse. His latest effort: All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace is another such three part attack. 

One may disagree with his conclusions, but it's impossible to not be a fan.
