American economics, post-human technology, gay iconography... the multiplicity of hidden meanings found in The Wizard of Oz is as incongruous as it is significant. Is this a film that’s so philosophical it goes beyond any one reading? Or is each reading merely a set of projected coincidences, like playing the movie alongside a Pink Floyd album?
