This paper examines the roots, evolution, and apparent direction of post-modern thought as it appears in cinema presentations of the city and its citizens. Post-modernism guided the late 20th century and now shapes our understanding of the 21st. The culture, people, literature, and arts all carry the post-modern constructs, which shape our future through chaos and find direction from a lack of boundaries. Americanism has drifted into post-modern culture through the evolution of our collective goals, dreams, and our realizations and disappointments in reaching toward the same. The post-modern mind is finding freedom in its new paradigm, but is this freedom to become greater than itself, or is post-modern thinking an attempt to cast off past failures without taking ownership of the future?

The Setting

From the Paper:

"Postmodernism is also a reaction to modernity, and hence derives its name from the same. The modern era, ushered into the American dream through the scientific process and critical thinking constructs of the 60's and 70's, carried with it the promise of a better life. Through breaking down problems into their basic components, and engineering those pieces, culture, the economy, and business could be improved. The advances in business through this understanding brought success and economic expansion which the country had never before experiences. Theorem proposed theory supported. Because of the economic progress, culture was able to expand and grow. We traveled, dined out, and created an entire entertainment industry through the economic expansion, and the increase in disposable income."
