(p.385) Seeing Blind Spots: Corporate Misconduct in Film and Law
Law and Popular Culture

Michael Robertson

Oxford University Press

This chapter looks at various aspects of law, particularly corporate misconduct, that are not shown in motion pictures. It explores where such structural blindness exist and investigates how this limits the ability of film to reflect legal realities. It describes how corporate misconduct is portrayed in classical Hollywood films and documentaries. It suggests that if a film is disabled from portraying some forms of corporate misconduct, then the publicity given to doing this is less and the chances of remedial action are reduced.

Keywords:   corporate misconduct, motion pictures, law, documentary films, legal realities
