List of surveillance feature films

Berlin based Dietmar Kammerer, cultural anthropologist, film critic and philosopher has compiled an extensive and annotated list of surveillance feature films (pdf).

It contains films from 1956’s “1984” to the classic “Dr Mabuse” (1960), from the absurd “Brazil”(1985) to the mainstream “Sneakers” (1992), from De Palma’s “Blowout” (1981) to Antonioni’s “Blow-up” (1966) – films from early as 1927  – “Metropolis” – to the latest Hollywood hits.

For all researchers interested in the subject matter, this resource will hopefully be of much help. For all others an enjoyable reading.

Thanks to Dietmar for this list and the work that went into it.
