Critical Theory Goes to the Movies

'One of the things I enjoyed most about studying new media and cultural theory was the juxtaposition of high and low culture. I realised how many of the themes of dense theoretical writing were the very same themes explored in film (and particularly science fiction). There was a certain twisted appeal in taking a fairly unapproachable text and accompanying it with imagery from films that have made me think over the years. While putting it together I was intrigued to discover how many of those films shared common themes, characters and ideas something else that you can see running through the piece.' Brett Rolfe
