Videocracy is an observational documentary that moves around the edges of power and fame in Italy. You can read more about it over here. It caused a wee share of controversy in Italy, with its trenchant criticism of the hegemony of Berlusconi’s media empire. Strangely the film itself really doesn’t have a lot to say, but the dream like montages of fame and celebrity interrupted with interviews with the lizards operating in that world is enough to leave you sure there’s deeply pessimistic going on in Italy at the moment.
If you are looking for a download version, be careful with the subs you find – some of the them really look like the Google translate engine was operating under a strenuous hangover the day they were fed into them. The soundtrack and scoring of the film pulls you in greatly too, more than enough to compensate for any weird language hiccups..
