Forget the Alamo: history, legend and memory in John Sayles' Lone Star

An exploration of John Sayle's contemporary western Lone Star, as a film demonstrating a layered image of the past typical of the time-image. Campbell's analysis of the panning shot in this respect opened up new ways of considering popular films using Deleuze - it was influential in the thinking of David Martin-Jones, for example, and is mentioned in both Deleuze, Cinema and National Identity (2006) and Deleuze and World Cinemas (2011).
