A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD. Marielle Heller, director. Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster, script. Jade Healy, production design. China, USA: Big Beach Films, Tencent Pictures, TriStar Pictures (production) / TriStar (US distribution), 2019.

Not a strictly realistic film but even farther from being science fiction (or militantly "metacinema") or a paranoia surveillance/"panopticon" film.[1] Hence, BEAUTIFUL DAY can serve as a useful comparison and contrast for the Videology (in SF film) pointed out by Garrett Stewart, J. P. Telotte, and others: specifically here, the image of embedded video screens and the camera-work, framing, and composition calling attention to images in the film, and the film as (in addition to sound) visual images (the redundancy is intended).
