Errol Morris, Standard Operating Procedure: a recipe
- Whimsical, ironically inappropriate theme music.
- The Interrotron (cf. Panopticon)
- Images of total abjection, framed in gorgeous swathes of emotionally distancing black screen.
- Near-autistic, acontextual commentary by quasi-illiterate, shell-shocked Appalachian youth.
- Complete, utter lack of historical/cultural context.
- Dramatic, beautifully photographed re-enactment of the deaths of actual human beings.
