Cinematographic Space as a Material and the American Territory as a Subject : "Duel" and "The Sugarland Express"

Abstract : As his recent film Bridge of Spies once again illustrates, Spielberg has always been a rigorous stylist of cinematic space. From the layered deep focus composite shots of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, to the malleability of the digital scenery of The Adventures of Tintin, the experimental scenery of Hook and editing of Saving Private Ryan, and the exploration of emblematic locations like the amusement park in Jurassic Park and the airport in The Terminal, this concern for space takes on various forms throughout the filmmaker’s work. The aim of this chapter will be to describe and analyze the way this concern unfolds in the theatrical version of Duel and his first feature film The Sugarland Express, with special attention to the singular relationship both films have with the American land.
