Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky And The Media

A first-rate Canadian documentary (1992) by Mark Achbar and Peter Wintonick about the brilliant linguist and radical political commentator Noam Chomsky, probably the best living critic of American foreign policy as viewed through the media. Chomsky is so articulate and intelligent that this extended look (167 minutes) remains compulsively watchable, and the filmmakers pull off the unlikely feat of making the film genuinely humorous in spots.
