You may have heard about an Australian film called "Ghosts of the Civil
Dead" (John Hillcoat, 1988). It is a critique of private prisons, panoptic
surveilance, and disciplinary society in general. One of the characters
reads extensively from "DP" and Professor Simon During ("Foucault and
Literature") is cited in the credits as the film's 'Foucault Expert'.
