TV direct address

by Critical Commons Manager

The televisual convention of direct address takes on new meaning when Professor Brian O'Blivion pauses to address James Woods by name in this scene from Videodrome. This scene depicts a moment of transition between states of reality for Woods, as the videodrome signal takes hold of his own mind and begins to transform his body into a telling combination of video cassette player and lethal assassin.
