Disco Verite

I don't always agree with Adam Curtis, but I'll watch anything he makes. 'All Watched Over By Machines Of Loving Grace' has been a fascinating trip, although I have occasionally shouted at the telly. I've no wish to trivialise his work, but I particularly enjoyed the archive footage of various disco dancers he used to illustrate the last film in the series, so here are some snapshots.

Just like me, Adam has his own blog which he sometimes uses as a testing ground for new projects; unlike me, Curtis is not that interested in disco.


  1. Glad to know I wasn't the only one whose eye was caught by the young lady in red.
    There's nothing like a bit of dancing to throw unremitting bleakness into sharp relief.

  2. I think that pundits would take that Curtis fellow more seriously if he showed more of an interest in disco.
