Post Modernism Film
"I put the grrr in swinger, baby!" Austin Powers The Spy Who Shagged Me, and if the imagination of Austin creator Mike Myerss is a film that is an example of Post Modernism. Austin Powers heads back to the '60s to keep perennial nemesis Dr. Evil (Myers again) from blowing up the world--and, more importantly, to get back his mojo, that man-juice that turns Austin into irresistible catnip for women. Alot of Filmmaking these days are post modernism. Since postmodernism has been absorbed into the contemporary lexicon of filmmakers, it has become just another way to explore themes and characters. Austin Powers is an awesome movie that is hilarious and a way to look at the 60's in a whole new view.
