This is not a movie to watch for its entertainment value. But if you're looking for an intellectually bracing analysis of the American media, then look no further. Chomsky has often been characterized as being as leftist as you can go without falling off the earth. Be that as it may, it's not necessary to agree with his political views to appreciate his analysis of the structure and rules of the media machine. Every system has an internal logic by which it works, and Chomsky lays bare some of the inherent rules by which the American media is structured and provides examples to back up his claims. The movie does deify Chomsky a bit, but regardless, there is plenty of food for thought here.
