BATMAN RETURNS. Tim Burton, dir. USA: Warner, 1992.

Sequel to BATMAN (1989), q.v. Note esp. cyberpunk attack penguins (our characterization). If the superimposition of the mechanical upon the human is central for the human/machine interface at the beginning of the modern(ist) era, the superimposition of the cybernetic upon the Sphenisciformes probably marks the end of something. See under Background, entry for H. Bergson. See in this Category, DAY OF THE DOLPHIN.
