The prologue 'Living in an unreal world' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtjfoEvsR9w is quite good.

There are pieces missing from the Youtube copy as noted in the comments. About 10 minutes missing total. As one commenter mentioned the bit about how counterculture plays into the big picture was redacted, which personally pisses me off as counterculture is crucial as a pushback against the mindwashing, and understanding how that counterculture gets 'spun' used, and disabused by the mindwashers is imperative.

As far as the documentary itself, the sociological info is good but Curtis seems to have been pwnd by GCHQ regarding the Middle East. I don't accept his premise in regard to it nor does he present any evidence for his hypotheses. Further, what he's proposing in Hypernormalization as root causes of the turmoil in the Middle East  doesn't match up with 'The Power of Nightmares' or his more recent written piece "The Baby and the Baathwater', about the US government's involvement in bringing the Baath party to power after WWII.
