Abstract and Keywords
This article appears in the Oxford Handbook of Sound and Image in Digital Media edited by Carol Vernallis, Amy Herzog, and John Richardson. This article develops several detailed scene analyses of Duncan Jones’s Source Code (2011), with special attention given to the work of the soundtrack in the opening and closing sections of the film. These analyses focus on locating the mythical constructions that underlie the film, on the relation of these mythic constructions to the capitalist system on which the film industry depends, and on evaluating the efficacy of music and sound in supporting these mythic constructions.
