if only my dissertation where a film (or Naomi Klein's got a good thing going here)

Naomi Klein's new book The Shock Doctrine doesn't just have blurbs from academic-types recommending its wonderfulness but comes with a film preview.

The director of the film? Alfonso Cuaron (of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban fame. Well, he also made something else called The Children of Men starring that personification of magnification Mr. Clive Owen. Mr. Owen by the way is currently filling up our big screens as Mr. Smith in Shoot 'em Up. I shall be discussing that anon. But, as usual, I digress). Cuaron's film is disturbing despite being less than seven minutes long. The "Design and animation by Foreign Office" is cheeky, the images and the sentiments are not.

Check it out for yourselves:

Maybe I can persuade Mr. Cuaron to make a film about my dissertation. After all, terrorists. Fits right in with PoA (escaped Terrorist storyline) and CoM (Terrorists everywhere).
