1990s: The First Days of Digital—Reality Losing its Realness in America and Australia
This episode begins with a look at the brilliant, flashy, playful movies in the English-speaking world in the 1990s. We see what was new in Tarantino’s dialogue and the edginess of the Coen brothers. The writer of Starship Troopers and RoboCop talks exclusively about the films’ irony. In Australia, Baz Luhrmann talks about Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge, and we plunge into the digital world to see how it has changed the movies forever.
The movies come full circle. They get more serious after 9/11, and Romanian movies come to the fore. Then David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive offers one of the most complex dream films ever made, and Inception turns film into a game. In Moscow, master director Alexander Sokurov talks about his innovative films. And a surprise: The Story of Film goes beyond the present, to look at film in the future.
