President at the wedding scene, as the director tells us in the extras on the DVD package (‘Audio Interview with Director Alfonso Cuarón’). The impact of this private sponsorship on the film is not directly obvious; however, the production context of a film is central to an analysis of the political nature of the text. This is especially significant with a film which purports to critique bourgeois values and neo-liberalism, and to show the ‘other’ (mestizo) Mexico. I will argue below that the film adopts a soft brand of corporate anti-globalisation; that is, it presents a

another. Latham Hunter’s (2003) analysis of representations of masculinity at the movies confirms this. Hunter cites the influence of several popular films on everyday practices and attitudes: the popularity of British movie Billy Elliot (2000), for example, saw a significant increase in the number of boys taking up ballet. As Hunter points out, ‘film is not just text … it also influences the circumstances of culture’ (2003: 71). In innumerable ways, on-screen and off-screen worlds intersect.

Toxic Grafity’s punk epiphany as subjectivity (re)storying ‘the truth of revolution’ across the lifespan

, intimidating people from taking collective action against it, here this haybat, this toxic charisma, was ‘punctured for all time’, just destroyed. And Mike D, a living, witnessing link between Stop the City and the Arab Spring grew up again in the punktured shell of Manager Mike. Few if any of the participants in the Bahrain Revolution would have known of Stop the City, but a genealogy connects them via the anti-globalisation and anti-capitalist protests of the later 1990s to 2000s and the Occupy! movement.12 Bahrain has a long history of uprising against, firstly, de facto

Whereas the opening credits of the original film situated very clearly where the action was to take place – showing a series of objects evoking the Sentier and its textile industry – the second film starts rather differently. It begins with a parody of the famous opening credits of James Bond films, replete with dancing women and dramatic theme tune. It even has Patrick pose as 007: suggesting that he and his

Actually, many protesters advocate planetary consciousness and global interconnectedness based on concerns for human rights, ecology and a more equal division of world resources. There is little argument that transnational corporations now account for about a third of world economic output and two thirds of world trade (Spronk, 2002: 2). However, to accept the inevitably of some form of globalisation is still not necessarily to accept the inevitability of a model based on western M410 HARRIS TEXT.qxd 20/7/06 11:35 AM Page
