We'll I really loved that. I thought the film was way better than the general tone of the discussion about it on here and the Q&A was rather lovely. He talked quite generally about the type of cases the film was influenced by and dropped in 3 or 4 very funny little details and one liners.

The only thing I felt a bit was a bit disappointing was that in response to being asked if it is more difficult to make satire he seemed to suggest that one of the reasons he steers away is not knowing if an audience would have his back "Who are MY people?". It's entirely up to him what he does with his life but I do find that a bit of a shame. I suppose if you look back at all of his "shocking" work previously it all had some kind of objectively good aim to it (e.g. Four Lions taking the piss out of terrorists, Brass Eye being a wake up to gullible celebrities, Paedogedden was ABOUT the excesses of the press).

I can totally see why he wouldn't want to be on the end of a shit storm from Trump/Tory/Farage/Brexit/Remain/etc supporters but it would be nice if he was able to launch into an all out take down of the systems. Not to be I suppose. Oh well.

Loved the film.

Realistically, though, he’d be more likely to be on the end of a shit storm from Twitter et al. if he were to do that kind of stuff now. Even something like Nathan Barley would probably be seen as “old white man not getting it”. I don’t know if the Daily Mail types even really bother with it all the same way they used to, the internet has definitely taken over in that regard.

That being said, I don’t think he would come back with that kind of stuff now. He seems to have an entirely different approach to his work and the kind of things he wants to examine. Whether film is the best medium or not, I don’t know, but I’d imagine he’s chosen that route for a reason.

In the later Q&A one the questions was what his favourite Aphex Twin album is. Insightful stuff.

I'll never get over the fact I was enduring a 6 hour journey from Milton Keynes whilst he was there.

I saw Chris Morris one night and GWAR the next.  That’s 98% of my cultural landscape.  I’m now having a quiet breakdown.
