Abstract: Why is it that the city has become such an aesthetic focus for cinema? Like the cinema, the modern city is an iconographic form of the twentieth century and shares many of cinema’s obsessions with speed, light and movement: the cinema and the city are kindred expressions of modern humanity. In this article, the author discusses the history of this relationship and how a particular visual approach to the city has developed, the concept of ‘CityScope’, and shaped how spectators and citizens comprehend the spaces of the modern and post-modern conurbation.
