Welcome back to CalArts Movie Mondays, my little film festival of TV shows and movies shot at California Institute of the Arts. Probably the best known of all the films shot on campus, Sleeper tells the story of a man revived after being frozen for 200 years.
Inside the modular theater, the floor is broken up into four-foot square segments that sit on hydraulic lifts. Since it's possible for the floor to be quite high in some places, there are these seldom-used hallways with banks of doors on the upper level. I'm amazed at how often the school becomes the institutional face of a dystopic future.The Hallways Around the Upper Levels of the Mod Theater c 1973

Woody Allen's character reminds me of the boys of South Park, as both shows' protagonists prefer not to express any ardent political position, but rather occupy some pseudo-insightful middle ground. By painting both the left and right as wacky extremists, Parker, Stone and Allen put a shiny gloss on the apathy of a fictional middle ground.
