Rating: 3.9/5 (29 votes cast)

A look at how politicians and other members of the establishment repackage war, poverty, natural disasters and other inherently negative situations and actions with misleading terminology.  Although evident throughout the ages and across nearly every regime, this film focuses on modern rhetoric used to fool the masses.

    Social Engineering, Perception Management, not new concepts, every thing in this documentary was learned by allot of us along time ago. It’s old Edward Bernays techniques from years ago in modern contexts.

    Disappointing in that aspect, was looking for something more, still the film is good for what it is, and for those who haven’t seen a whole lot of documentaries.

    Almost wished there wasn’t an Orwellian 1984 reference in the title as well, it gives the feeling of planting that thought in people’s heads, even though clearly these politicians are rather Orwellian.
