9. For example, see the work of DP Conrad Hall in 1967’s Cool Hand Luke, which incorporated flare into the overall shot composition as a visual representation of chain gang workers’ fatigue and dizziness while working under the hot Southern sun.

11. These eye shadow palettes have enjoyed a recent resurgence in fashion magazines as well.

12. Neoliberal and postfeminist ideologies construct gendered representations in this film, creaeting a futuristic world which naturalizes women’s presence in the workplace as already accepted and obvious. This naturalization means that gender critiques can be dismissed as unnecessary. These ideological structures are buttressed on a more overt level by Paramount’s need to market the film to hardcore Trekkers as well as find a new, wider audience that skewed younger. This complicates any discussion of “authenticity” of the new film. I write in depth about these  ideological underpinnings of the new Star Trek film in an essay entitled “Twenty-first Century Neoliberal Man.” forthcoming in Neoliberalism and Global Cinema, Keith Wagner and Jyotsna Kapur, eds.
