The Speakeasy: A Reverse Thieves Podcast – Drink #005

Drink #005: Summer Gin Punch, Suspension of disbelief (or lack thereof).

You are watching a movie and then you notice something. Maybe it’s a machine you use at work that you know does not work that way; maybe it is the incorrect presentation of the rules of a sport you play; or maybe just a piece of dialog that rings untrue. The second you realize something is off  you spend the rest of the movie picking it part. You have been taken out of the movie and cannot get back in. We use the movie Summer Wars as a spring-board to examine this phenomenon and how it shapes our perception of a work.
