    Dear all,

    After reading about the novels which served, one way or another, as an underlying source of inspiration for CasP theory, I was wondering if we could come up with movie suggestions as well.

    It would be interesting to share some lists of movies which can relate to the main themes of CasP theory.

    Right off the top of my head, perhaps:

    Orson Welles – Citizen Kane (1941) [it surely involves themes about wasteful dépense, subjective alienation, ecc.]

    Fritz Lang – Metropolis (1927) [this one is quite trivial!]

    Charles Ferguson – Inside Job (2010) [on the 2007-8 financial crisis]

    etc.

    Hope you find this worth expanding!

      I’ll see how many of those movies I can find on N. and S.  Are there any services which might show other interesting cinema? Let’s say the films of Ingmar Bergman and Sergie Bondarchuk as examples.

      N. and S.? Netflix and … ?

      For me (in Canada) I have used Kanopy (which you can sync with a public library or university subscription) and the Criterion Channel (paid subscription, but worth it in my eyes). MUBI is CC’s closest alternative. One can assume there are still lots of streamers/torrents out there.

      Bergman –> there is always this beast.
