Ghosts in the Machine: Speculating on the Dark Heart of Pop Cinema
"To explain and support his thesis Michael Atkinson turns his gaze on movies that are rarely subject to the rigorous kind of analysis he provides. Films often considered pure, and sometimes even mindless, entertainment are actually, he demonstrates, far more than that. The modern equivalent of folktales, they give us welcome opportunities to take our suppressed anger, fears and anxieties out for "a wee stretch of the legs." We the audience are the ghosts that haunt the movie machine."--BOOK JACKET.
