If It Moves, Shoot It
Author and film critic David Thomson explores how cinema has changed him - and us: violence at the movies. From 2011.
"There is violence in the medium. It begins with being in the dark, monopolized and compelled by the light. There is a kind of imprisonment. It is then increased by the way film can cut. And cut is a very appropriate word."
Critic and writer David Thomson continues his journey through cinema and considers its enduring love affair with violence.
Producer: Mark Burman.
First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in January 2011.
