Video of the day

The Museum of Moving Image six part film essay Razzle Dazzle, by Aaron Aradillas and Matt Zoller Seitz, which looks at fame as it is presented by the movies. Currently Part 1: The Pitch, Part 2: The Hero, and Part 4: The Parasite are out. This is Part 3: The Fraud.
Marrying screwball comedy and social satire, the fraud movie shows how institutions and corporations manufacture false idols, satisfying the audience's desire for role models while furthering their own agendas.
