LE PRIX DU DANGER & THE RUNNING MAN

 

the running man

This Friday, I'll be giving an introduction to Yves Boisset's Le prix du danger (1982) and Paul Michael Glaser's The Running Man (1987) at the Cinematek in Brussels. The films are part of a "Reality TV" double-bill.

About Le prix du danger: In a dystopian future, a television station organizes a manhunt, capitalizing on the low instincts and voyeurism of viewers who closely follow the candidate's elimination. It is reminiscent of what reality TV would become a few years later. Based on a story by American sci-fi writer Robert Sheckley.

About The Running Man: A few years after Le prix du danger, American director Paul Michael Glaser's The Running Man (starring Arnold Schwarzenegger) was released, using exactly the same plot. Yves Boisset files a lawsuit for plagiarism, which lasts 11 years and which he eventually wins. But The Running Man is also an adaptation of a novel by Stephen King. However, Glazer (the Starsky from Starsky & Hutch) goes for a much kitschier, entertaining film, which will have an undeniable influence on the world of video games. 

My latest book, Evil Seeds: The Ultimate Movie Guide to Villainous Children, is now available from Amazon and other retailers.

    "Le Prix du Danger" and "The Running Man" are classic dystopian novels that explore themes of surveillance, entertainment, and the dark side of human nature. These novels remain relevant today, offering insights into the potential consequences of a hyper-surveilled society obsessed with entertainment. The authors' dystopian visions are chillingly realistic, making readers contemplate the implications of their worlds. The main characters' development as they navigate treacherous environments adds depth and relatability to the stories. These novels serve as powerful social commentaries, highlighting the dangers of a society driven by voyeurism and sensationalism. The fast-paced and suspenseful plots keep readers engaged, while the protagonists' resilience and determination are both inspiring and thought-provoking. The books raise profound moral dilemmas, forcing readers to question their actions in similar situations. Themes of control, where the powerful manipulate the vulnerable for entertainment, are explored in both novels. The media influence of media and technology is reflected in the narratives, with both novels containing predictive elements of our current reality, such as reality TV and surveillance technologies. The novels' enduring relevance and engrossing narratives make them essential reads for fans of dystopian fiction. They continue to resonate in today's world of reality TV and constant surveillance, and raise ethical questions that encourage critical examination of societal norms.
