Bitter Lake is a new, adventurous, and epic film by Adam Curtis that explains why the big stories politicians tell us have become so simplified that we can’t really see the world any longer. The narrative goes all over the world, America, Britain, Russia and Saudi Arabia – but the country at the heart of it is Afghanistan, because Afghanistan is the place that has confronted our politicians with the terrible truth – that they cannot understand what is going on any longer.
