Abstract
[...] in this essay I will take my bearings not simply from the film but from the text of the larger conversation, though I will consider the way that that text is given a distinctive form of life through the vehicle of the film. [...] they challenge a range of conventional legal assumptions about the body: I will detail these assumptions, and the ways they are interrogated by this conversation, in Part I. Second, this performance of interdependence points toward new, or at least less familiar, ways of deploying the law, a focus I take up in Part II.
