A click on the “Publish” button in Ecto instead of the “Save” button will have given a odd posting. Apologies to all and sundry.
I’ve been reading several of the books from the British Film Institute’s Modern Classics series while I revised the introductory chapter to the thesis. Skimming through the books on The Matrix (Joshua Clover) and Blade Runner (Scott Bukatman) was helpful in straightening out some examples I wanted to use of cinema serving as an arena for public concerns about technology to be expressed within.
The books are shortish and easy to read – though in a couple of places I needed to decode the film/media studies jargon. Well worth having a look at, if only briefly.
