University Department of Philosophy.

"Who Knew Too Much?: Painful Indications and the Question of Sight"

Professor Murray Pomerance
Department of Sociology, Ryerson University (Toronto)
2-4pm, Wednesday, 22nd April, 2015
Building W6A, Room 107

While brilliantly and fascinatingly introducing analytical elements of a
syndrome he calls "Intensive Continuity," David Bordwell neglects to
comment on an underlying substructure of this relatively new cinematic
trend, the dependence on indication and indicativeness in the construction
and reception of films. This talk explores indication and subjunctivity as
possible modes of cinematic experience, with in-depth focus on three films
of Hitchcock, North by Northwest, Vertigo, and The Man Who Knew Too
Much (1956).
