| Psychedelic Agitprop
Imminent Threat is a piece of psychedelic documentary agitprop written, directed, produced, edited, etc., by some prolific young guy named Janek Ambros.

It combines the absurd social humor of a Michael Moore, the relentless stock footage of an Adam Curtis, the dark editorializing of an Oliver Stone, and the intrepid journalism of a Jeremy Scahill in presenting a culture in which reality is one small step away from the movie Minority Report. A completely legal pattern of activity can net you an appointment with a drone strike, because you were 'on the course of *becoming* a "terrorist."' The constitution is truly just toilet paper. What a world.

Classic films and grainy stock footage convey the popular struggle against authoritarian fascism through the ages. Dynamic editing and bold color filters lay an abstract tone of psychedelia over the proceedings, which is countered by the erudite clarity provided by various well-spoken Libertarian talking heads.

The typical agitprop third act will attempt to inspire potential civil liberties activists to rise from the grassroots. Some will rise, and some will fall--sinking into their seats, in dreadful awe of a spectacle that I might equate to reading The Times on a acid trip gone bad.
