‘You’ll never look at your favourite movies and TV shows the same way again. And you shouldn’t’ Steven Soderbergh ‘Insanely readable’ Slavoj Zizek ‘Your book was … like a bag of pot, with me saying, ‘I’m not gonna smoke.’ But I was insatiable’ Quentin Tarantino on Easy Riders, Raging Bulls In The Sky is Falling! bestselling cultural critic Peter Biskind takes us on a dizzying ride across two decades of pop culture to show how the TV and movies we love – from Game of Thrones and 24 to Homeland and Iron Man – have taught us to love political extremism. Welcome to a darkly pessimistic, apocalyptic world where winter has come, the dead are walking, and ultra violence, revenge and torture are all in a day’s work. Welcome to the new normal.
