Chris Kraus (b. 1955) and & Sylvère Lotringer
How to Shoot a Crime (1987)
How to Shoot a Crime (1987), made with & Sylvère Lotringer, virtually spells out the argument made by Lotringer’s Sorbonne adviser Roland Barthes in S/Z: that literary narrative snares the reader through a system of codes. Only here, it’s done in filmic form, with a police videographer describing how to construct evidence videos so that viewers (in his case, jurors) actually look forward to seeing a corpse.
