Towards A Cellphone Cinematography
[a discussion about mobile telecommunication as a tracking particle
or Foucault checkmated inside widespread Movies]

In this article I will focus myself in two different movies: the blockbuster Batman – The Dark Knight (2008) and the recent Brazilian one Salve Geral (2009).

*How has been mobile telecommunication discussed in these recent popular movies?
*How are these everydayness surveillance technologies being discussed inside cinema?
*How did it become a central component of narrative?

This paper is a sequence of my master degree studies focused in Elite Squad film (2007) related to Foucault analyses about a increasing of control in society how it runs in a cinematography – as its digital networking derivated – discussion nowadays.
...
I'm interested to pointed out how realism depends upon a system of inter-textual and extra-textual codes, i.e. my movies' analyses must include breaking out a range of signification codes, looking at widespread as specific cultural contexts (mobile phones and Foucault studies are “the widespread one” and Brazilian movie and its social reality are “the specific one”). Throwing out of Christian Metz wrote: cinema as a collective production, i.e. how the cinema could be said to signify, or generate, a society common meaning.
