Investigates how postmodern techniques are used to create works that embody contemporary contradictions. The author proposes a poststructuralist/postmodern film theory which enhances the analysis of this type of film.

...[has] much to offer...[raises] important questions about theorizing the spectator in the context of a national cinema at a time when the spread of multiculturalism and globalization is placing enormous pressure on traditional ideas of national identity. -- Jim Leach * Canadian Journal of Film Studies *
