ALPHAVILLE (vt "Tarzan vs. IBM" favored by dir.). Jean-Luc Godard, dir. France: Pathécontemporary / Chaumiane-Film, 1965.

Computer-domination story that S. F. Ency. describes as "an ambiguous allegory of contemporary technology-dominated society"; it may be more important for an early combination of film noir with SF. See below, BLADE RUNNER, and under Drama Criticism, R. Roud's article on ALPHAVILLE.[1]
