National Film Board Canada.

John Walker..

With rampant narcissism threatening to trash civilization as we know it, the time has come for *******: A Theory, an entertaining and oh-so-timely new doc from acclaimed director John Walker. Built around a lively conversation with Aaron James, author of the New York Times bestseller of the same name, this Hot Docs 2019 favourite investigates the breeding grounds of contemporary “******* culture,” from Ivy League frat clubs, Web Forums and Silicon Valley to Wall Street and beyond. Why do ******* thrive in certain environments? What explains their perverse appeal and success? Monty Python’s John Cleese, LGBTQ activist Vladimir Luxuria and more weigh in on the rise of *******-dom in politics, economics, and social media, offering a few hopeful signs of civility in an otherwise rude-’n-nasty universe.

With venomous social media, resurgent authoritari anism and rampant narcissism threatening to trash civilization as we know it, the time has come for *******: A Theory—an entertaining and oh-so-timely feature doc from acclaimed director John Walker.

Inspired by Aaron James’ New York Times bestseller of the same name, ******* investigates the breeding grounds of contemporary “******* culture” and locates signs of civility in an otherwise rude-’n-nasty universe.

Venturing into predominantly male domain, Walker moves from Ivy League frat clubs, Web Forums to the bratty princedoms of Silicon Valley and bear pits of international finance. Why do ******* thrive in certain environments? What explains their perverse appeal? And how do they keep getting elected!

Lively commentary is provided by the likes of actor John Cleese, former Canadian police officer Sherry Lee Benson-Podolchuk, and Italian LGBTQ activist Vladimir Luxuria, who famously locked horns with Silvio Berlusconi, the p***y-grabbing prototype of the 21st-century demagogue.
