  1. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Rodney King

    Rodney King, the first reality TV star. He went viral before the term even existed. But he became an unwilling star simply because the "accidental" recording of his beating was broadcast on TV. In other words, it's the recording itself that was unusual, not the brutal beating by the LAPD. In his long, powerful, bleak, vehement tirade Smith argues that the medium is the message. And the medium is America.
