This is a book about secrecy, militarism, and censorship at the heart of the world’s leading democracy—and about those who fight them.
Using thousands of pages of documents acquired through the Freedom of Information Act, 'National Security Cinema' exclusively reveals that the national security state—led by the CIA and Pentagon—has worked on more than eight-hundred Hollywood films and over a thousand network television shows.
The latest scholarship has underestimated the size of this operation, in part because the government have gone to considerable lengths to prevent data emerging, especially in the 21st Century, as the practice of government-Hollywood cooperation has escalated.
National Security Cinema reveals for the first time specific script changes made by the government for political reasons on dozens of blockbusting franchises like Avatar, Meet the Parents, and The Terminator.
These forces have suppressed important narratives about: CIA drug trafficking; illegal arms sales; PTSD in servicemen; the interaction of private armies and oil companies; government treatment of minorities; torture; coups; assassinations, and the failure to prevent 9/11.
