This thesis works to clarify what an Adornean conception of Autonomous Cinema might look like through incorporating other theorists such as Aldous Huxley and Fredric Jameson. Through an analysis of films by Wim Wenders, Werner Herzog, and Paolo Sorrentino, the essay examines questions of film aesthetics in post-modernity, and insists on the importance of a non-didactic form of cognitive mapping.
