2012, 7:56 min, color, sound, HD video

Evil 35: Carlin / Owners (2012) pairs an excerpt from a characteristically cantankerous screed by the late stand-up comedian George Carlin with two songs by British agit-prop post-punk group Gang of Four. These two cultural texts—one from a Bush-era HBO comedy special, the other from Thatcher-era Leeds—each tackle the somnambulant consumerism of late capitalism.
