Orwell Rolls In His Grave (2003)
4.3 · 7

"Orwell Rolls Over In His Grave" expresses ideas that will never be heard in mainstream media. It is the consummate critical examination of the Fourth Estate, once the bastion of American democracy. Asking whether America has entered an Orwellian world of doublespeak where outright lies can pass for the truth, director Robert Kane Pappas explores what the media doesn't like to talk about: itself. (This film provides the quintessential synopsis for why websites like ours is needed. Look for a theater screening of this in Lawrence 2008)
