PUNISHMENT PARK (1971)
Both timely and timeless, documentarian Peter Watkins' Punishment Park is one of the most powerful and disturbing political films ever made. I noticed it was up again on Youtube. It won't be for long, but as long as it is, you could do a lot worse than spend 90 minutes soaking up this 10 megaton hauntological parapolitical mind-bomb of a film. Then, once you're done watching, learn about the remarkable circumstances of its creation.
