LENIN'S TOMB has posted a Danish documentary about Marcuse, his support for the radical movements of the 1960s, and his clash with Governor Ronald Reagan. It includes commentary by people like his student Angela Davison (on his involvement helping kick down doors in occupations of the university senate at UCSD etc) , and he himself talks about branding, planned obsolescence and 'vulgar psychological misinterpretations of the student movement'. Fred Jameson is also in it, and there is an amusing section of attempts by conservatives to buy out Marcuse's job contract. Its an hour long - but worth a Look. Ahh, he paid anonymously for the door he smashed. Strange. But the bit with the Marine Recruiter is funny - and very topical still - and the guff about 'poisoning young minds'. Very dangerous. Ha Ha Ha. See also here.
