Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky And The Media Review


Very Good
Noam Chomsky, toward the beginning of Manufacturing Consent, tells someone that he can't imagine why an audience would want to watch him talk for an hour. Heh, I wish! Mark Achbar and Peter Wintonick give us nearly three full hours of Noam Noam Noam, largely interviews conducted directly with the famed linguist/political meddler, and outtakes from public interviews he gave throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, the result of following him around the world. Unfortunately, putting Chomsky on a pulpit for three hours isn't really the best way to get his message across (a deep and thorough indictment of politics, the media, and corporate leadership). A little more context and some judicious editing could have given the film longer legs.
