Chris Hedges is a Pulitzer Prize-winning correspondent who left the New York Times after it censured him for voicing opposition to the Iraq war. “Open,” a documentary based on Hedges’ book “Death of the Liberal Class,” is composed of found footage set to the IDM beats of Warp artist Clark, a bracing hybrid of agitprop and music video. The vision presented here of elite control and individual powerlessness makes Orwell seem like Mother Goose, but just dive into its analysis of the Internet from 18:30: spot on.
