"Let this 'digital dinosaur' stand as a nexus point for these speculations on the science of images...In the narrative of the film, this animal is breaking into the computer control room of the park and threatening to devour the controllers. Perhaps it is an allegory for our hope that the digitizing of the image is a way of controlling the wild kingdom of images."
