Medium Cool

 

This movie is a must see for the times we are in right now. The title is taken from McLuhan’s book Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man and shows amazing footage of the DNC in 1968. It is one of, if not the best films on politics and media ever made yet remains a hidden gem.

The movie itself plays like someone taking a go pro into a time machine, and the ever magnificent Robert Forster carries the picture by being both a strong presence and a passive spectator, no easy feat.
