Shadow World

Shadow World ★★★½

This is a powerful, dense, often poetic, always violent and controversial polemic documentary about the corruption of perpetual wars in the 20th and 21st centuries. The film indicts the arm industries, which are shown to be gigantic bribery machines which pollute the political powers, in particular in Britain and the U.S. The film graphically presents with harrowing visuals the current morass of drone strikes and terrorism in the Middle East with unremitting horror. Nobody comes off well in this film, including the film makers, who perhaps go too far to indict every side and every politician in this "shadow world" of wars and corruption.
