The Geopolitical Aesthetic is a dazzling Fredric Jameson poses some essential questions: How does representation function in contemporary film? How does contemporary cinema represent an ever more complex and international social reality? Jameson’s sophisticated and theoretically informed readings stress the ways in which disparate films–for example, Godard’s Passion, Pakula’s All the President’s Men, Yang’s The Terrorizer, Tahimik’s The Perfumed Nightmare, Tarkovsky’s Andrei Roublev–confront similar problems of representation.
The solutions vary widely but the drive remains the same–the desire to find adequate allegories for our social existence. The Geopolitical Aesthetic, a refinement and development of the arguments put forward in Jameson’s seminal work The Political Unconscious, is aedthetic reading for everyone interested in both film analysis and cultural studies.
