Here is a link to my recent interview with Tom Secker.
I talk to Tom Secker about his book National Security Cinema, co-written with Matthew Alford. Using the US Freedom of Information Act, and journalistic and academic sources, as well as analysis of script changes, Tom and Matthew have greatly increased our knowledge of the US Department of Defense’s and the CIA’s use of hardware and expertise as an enticement to film producers and directors to remove elements of their scripts critical of or simply inconvenient for the defence and intelligence establishments; affecting, to that extent, how cinema-goers see the world.
