Shiel also talks about cinema as a global industry and talks at length about the globalisation of film culture and society architecture. The cities of Berlin, Warsaw and Los Angeles, as refracted in the cinema of Ruttman, Kieslowski and Haynes, are dense enough texts without the addition of throwaway theory.

Is Hollywood cinema simply an apprenticeship to Western capitalism? My approach to the cinematic city as a potentially multifaceted formation contingent on the eyes that see, relies in particular on Walter Benjamin's theories on the flâneur - a narrative and discursive motif within which is embedded the representation and perception of modern life - and on Gilles Deleuze's concept of the modern cinema as constituted around a viewing, rather than an re -acting, subject. Rather than import and impose trendy ideas, he works from the images on the screen. This book examines the dynamic relationship between cinema, the most important cultural form, and the city, the most important form of social organization, since World War Two, in an exciting new way.
