A scholarly article for all you film students, secret map geeks, and/or Baz Luhrmann/Hugh Jackman fans.
“Jane Mills makes a number of telling observations about some shared traits between the art of maps and the cinema, and furthermore, dissects the narrative, cultural and ideological function of the many maps in Baz Luhrmann’s film.”
“These maps tell strange and fascinating tales. Look closely and you’ll find imagined lands, Queen’s tantrums, utopias and children’s puzzles. You’ll see Adam and Eve, a moon maiden, a symbolic knight, and wealthy show-offs. You’ll also discover the secrets of military campaigns, and read of urban rioters and scheming prisoners."
