Diana: The Mourning After (englisch)
A year after the Pont D’Alma sustained a little structural damage, the British media were beginning to shake off their hangovers, groaning in embarrassment and demanding, „Sorry, was I talking a lot of mawkish crap last year?“
The answer in all cases was „too right you were“. The title of this documentary Diana: The Mourning After summed up that queasy feeling of having indulged too much, having said things that in the cold light of day were humiliating and demeaning. Still, even a year on, dissenting voices were so rarely heard that Christopher Hitchens’s documentary had the air of a samizdat film, smuggled from a tiny underground of resistance to the mighty Stalinist cult of Dead Diana.
