  • Review

    Shock Doctrine is first coined by a Canadian journalist Naomi Klein and also the title of her book. It means, to ‘Instigate the people who are confused by catastrophe and crisis due to capitalists and lead the society using the regime they want.’ It is also criticizing the collapse of public interest because of how neo-liberalists used shock treatments ? remove regulations on privatization, reduce welfare - to reform the economy in South American and Russian in the late 20th century. The film stands on the basis of Klein’s idea and shows how shock treatments are used in reality. It cleverly combines the director’s interest in intellectual ideas and liberal arts and cannot be limited to one genre. Like Eisenstein wanted to make Marx’s 『Capital』 into a movie, Winterbottom also strives to accommodate discussion on humanity of the same age. [Lee Sang-yong]
