This text is both a series of investigations into aspects of contemporary politics, and a more genral attempt to articulate a critical philisophical perspective with politically disposed treatments of contemporary cinema. The interventions into aspects of current political issues, as exemplified in films like Hoop Dreams, Lonestar, Father of the Bride II, and To Live and Die in LA, are also influenced by Delueze, Derrida, Fouacault, and Lyotard; theorists loosely regarded by the author as post-Kantians. This book is suitable reading for all those interested in the links between culture and politics.
