Brains are delicate things…

Films: Documentary

Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media by Mark Achbar and Peter Wintonick
(the far more interesting story about the town of Media is that it was the place where anti-war activists broke into the local FBI offices, to great effect. That was not covered in the movie, sadly).

Century of the Self by Adam Curtis

Power of Nightmares by Adam Curtis

Fahrenheit 911 by Michael Moore (with reservations!)
