Time Out says
Gandini’s voiceover explains his purpose – ‘television and power are one and the same’ and, of the culture of Berlusconi, ‘we have the feeling he’s everywhere, even when he’s not visually present’ – but he allows his often jaw-dropping images to do the talking, and hats (or maybe Y-fronts) off to him for persuading Corona to be filmed preening in the shower. He reminds us that Berlusconi owns three commercial TV channels and controls all state television (so influencing 90 per cent of the country’s viewers), but he prefers intoning a sense of a culture overrun with corrupting vanity to making specific accusations. The combination of terrific footage with a low, rumbling score of doom makes this a compelling horror show.
