So… 20 minutes before the class, I’ve finally finished the reading.

At some point on page 274, I start to feel like the reading is looking at the film from a ‘Artifact Perspective’ than Socio-cultural Context. It feels like a sequence analysis of the film from 5-7 that looks dissects the film semiotically through the different phases.

I kept waiting to see if the author will conclude this discussion and say “Ok, so all of this shows that in the sociocultural context, it’s trying to get at this…” But that never came (or so I interpret).

Does anyone else feel the same way? Or am I looking at it wrong?
