Surveillance is with us both as a technological phenomenon and as a social practice. This book analyzes films that consider surveillance in such different domains as urban life, law enforcement, corporate security, cybernetics, and religious doctrine. Yet it is not this ostensible engagement with surveillance that makes the films considered so receptive to an investigation into surveillance. Surveillance, over and over, presents itself less as an issue to be tackled from some secure spectatorial position than as an experience to be rendered, an event to be dealt with. Far from constructing a general model of spectatorship, the book explores how narrative moments of surveillance are complicated and called into question by specific spectatorial responses.
