Have the techniques and technologies of the digital era so transformed cinema that they have changed the nature of viewers’ experiences? This chapter considers brief segments from a variety of films to address this question, including Summer of Sam, SLC Punk!, Run Lola Run, Se7en, Transformers, Death Proof, Kill Bill, (500) Days of Summer, Day Watch, and several by Johnnie To. In almost all cases, heightened audiovisual relations enable these new styles and forms, though other influences contribute too, including previsualization, CGI, Avid editing and Pro Tools; recent innovations in acting and lighting; changing forms of industry organization and production culture; varied modes of distribution and reception; and intensified global sharing across genres and styles. Attending to these segments may help us envision new forms of post-classical cinema.
