Not What It Seems: Symbols of Utopia/Dystopia in Film Science Fiction

I came across this link during a random browse. It is relevant, it seems, in that it reiterates the ideas inherent in architecture and film, particularly relating to spatial utopia/heterotopia (a bit more on heterotopias later)

I particularily like this image because it is similar to the type of work that I like creating. Black and white solarised prints of buildings. This city has a surreal dark feel and makes me feel like i am emerging from the darkness - escapism from something dark (evil).
