Bioscope, an early prototype of the cinema projector, is implicit here as synedoche for a colonial apparatus of capture. That is, as an insidious machine for the absorption of British-ruled Indians into dream and distraction. Film as a form of interpellation embedded in the interstices of the subconscious thus contaminates, obsesses, but unravels in its extimacy! Gee whiz! What a tired redivivus!
