My intention here is not so much to offer a reading of Robert Altman's science fiction film<i> Quintet</i>, but to begin to think, very tentatively, about the types of "utopian texts" we may hope to encounter in a world context of general crisis and cultural exhaustion. At the same time, I hope the type of reflection I am proposing here will help to explain my interest in Robert Altman's work.
