Stanley Kubrick and the Dark Side of the Moon

This is amazingly well done…

It would have been even better if they hadn’t decided to take things over the top in the aftermath scenes, but even so it’s still a whole lot of fun.

I dug around a bit but couldn’t find any backstory or “making of” information online (at least not in English) — I’m really curious as to whether all of the footage with Rumsfeld, Kissinger, Haig, etc., was purpose-filmed, or taken from a different interview and repurposed into this film.

I thought the use of the fictitious campaign song from “Wag the Dog” was a particularly nice touch…
