Adam Curtis documentaries

Is anyone interested in talking about an Adam Curtis documentary? (In related questions: does anyone know a way for me to watch parts two and three of All Watched Over By Machines of Loving Grace? I am willing to pay!) I have been working my way through his catalog (which, taken all in a row, is pretty intense) and would be interested in talking about some of his movies. All Watched Over is my strongest contender, if I can find the other parts. But also The Way of All Flesh, or his film about Nick Leeson, or the Century of the Self... I'm flexible!
