Understanding Postmodernism through Postmodernist films
Postmodernist films often carry typical portrayals of gender, race, class, genre, and time. Without us realising it, such hyperreality as defined by media culture is gradually blurring the boundaries of reality and the hyperreality.
Over the centuries, the media industry has also created huge impact on blurring high and low culture.
