Hugo and the Mechanization of the World

The opening scene of Martin Scorsese’ film Hugo depict the image of the moving gears inside a clock that is superimposed upon the round about of the Avenue des Champs-Élysées.

Without a doubt, this scence serves as a symbol of the mechanization of the world. However, the film does not offer an analysis of the implications of this transformation of society.
