Director of The Terminator, Aliens and Titanic, James Cameron’s latest movie, Avatar, is the most viewed cinema release of all time, yet to date receives little academic attention. Filling the... More > gap, editor of www.DeepFocusFilm.com, Bryn V. Young-Roberts, researches Avatar’s historical and cultural relevance with its first in-depth examination while simultaneously discussing the Cameron oeuvre. From the perspective of historical contextualisation and cultural analysis we decipher its socially significant subtext, encouraging a view that Avatar is not exclusively a generic entertainment spectacle. Providing foundations for future studies, we examine the film as metaphor for the Iraq War, advocator of the Internet as liberation tool, and political stance to the Bush administration.
