Abstract


Spanish Abstract: ´Peeping Tom´ (dir. Michael Powell, 1960), un clásico del cine de culto, nos sumerge en una intensa experiencia metafílmica. A base de acumulación mediática, repetición, inserción semiótico-perceptual, marcos dentro de marcos, y reflexividad casi hasta el infinito, saca la película un partido extraordinario a la semiótica básica del cine, a su mironismo básico, a sus patrones de identificación, a la manera en que el uso de la cámara guía y organiza nuestra experiencia pasiva. (Un retropost de 2011)

English Abstract: Watching 'Peeping Tom' (dir. Michael Powell, 1960), a classic of cult film, we experience an immersion in an intense metafilmic experience. By means of mediatic accumulation, repetition, semiotic-perceptual insertion, frames within frames, and almost infinite reflexivity, this film admirably exploits the basic semiotics of cinema, its elementary relience upon covert peeping, its patterns of identification, and the way the use of the camera guides and organizes our passive experience. (A retropost from 2011).
