So all talk of consumerism is talk of anti-consumerism.
I once posted a lovely still of this film of a woman with a gun and a mannequin.
The New Babylon of the title of this film refers (I just learned) to a shopping mall, with the same title.
Shopping malls are paradises of consumerism.
The earliest shopping malls were arcades, admirably staged by Walter Benjamin in the Arcades Project and exemplified by The Crystal Palace. Window shopping without getting wet! A feast of artificiality! Society of the spectacle!
A full version of The New Babylon is now on YouTube (above).
