Summary
Adam Lowenstein offers a positive alternative to cinema's perceived crisis of realism and, in so doing, enriches the meaning of cinematic spectatorship in the twenty-first century. He begins by showing how 'new' media have made theatrical cinema seem 'old'. He details how a sense of 'cinema lost' has accompanied the ascent of digital media, and explains that many people now worry that film's capacity to record the real is fundamentally changing. He argues that the Surrealist movement never treated cinema as a realist medium and that it understood our perceptions of the real itself to be a mirage
