Spectres of the Spectrum

Dir. Craig Baldwin (1999). An eccentric history of modern media (and a crank call bordering on genius), SF media activist Craig Baldwin’s rapid-fire collage film offers an outrageously complicated conspiracy involving everyone from Ben Franklin to L. Ron Hubbard—although narrative is less important than its bargain-basement blitz of TV kinescopes, old classroom films, and ancient Hollywood biopics.
