A Note on The Regressive Side of Modernization in Relation to Two Films by Robert Altman
journal contributionposted on 2017-05-21, 13:44 authored by Marcos Soares
My intention here is not so much to offer a reading of Robert Altman's science fiction film Quintet, but to begin to think, very tentatively, about the types of "utopian texts" we may hope to encounter in a world context of general crisis and cultural exhaustion. At the same time, I hope the type of reflection I am proposing here will help to explain my interest in Robert Altman's work.
