0 Morty Asked: December 1, 2019What does spectacle mean in regards to film/film theory?0I’m taking a introductory film class and every textbook definition of “spectacle” confuses me. Would love a very simple meaning of what people are talking about with spectacle influencing film.In: ShareFacebook 2 AnswersVoted KHymatim Added an answer on December 1, 2019 at 10:24 pm Without knowing more about the specifics of your film class it may be referring to Guy Debord’s spectacle.0Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsApp Xstitchpixels Added an answer on December 1, 2019 at 6:27 pm Spectacle is when a movie presents impressive visuals and attention grabbing set pieces without actually having much bearing on the actual plot. It’s used to pad run time, keep audiences engaged, and be memorable.An example would be the end battle in Endgame. Lots of fighting going on in the background, but the vast majority is completely inconsequential to the overall plot.0Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppLeave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse What is the capital of UK?
