Fantasy and the Cinema [PDF]

by James Donald
Why are films of the fantastic so perennially popular?

Can the idea of 'fantasy' explain audiences' fascination with cinema?

Has a carnivalesque cinema today displaced the avant-garde?

This book revitalised the study of film by suggesting a provocative new perspective that draws on aspects of contemporary cultural theory. The articles turn a sophisticated, scholarly but often irreverenet eye on material that ranges from modernist classics like Vampyr and India Song to Hollywood sci-fi, from the alchemical animation of Jan Svankmajer and the witty feminist videos of Ceceilia Condit to gut-churning horrors of Motel Hell. This is a book for people who enjoy cinema, but who want to understand why.
