Bronze Age
Society is rigid, doctrinaire. Individual is a cog in machine that is no longer valued. Identity is questioned. The cinematic form is faced with cliches, stereotypes that don't function. Cinema questions all forms (number of acts, iconography, symbols, etc.) Heroes aren't going to have a very good time. Haven't hit the nadir yet (that's the Lead Age).

Films covered in lecture
