The Power of Movies: How Screen and Mind Interact (Vintage)

The Power of Movies: How Screen and Mind Interact - Colin McGinn I found the subject quite interesting, but the presentation was lacking. For a book about the power of movies McGinn seemed reluctant to use examples from film history. He also is quite adept at pounding a point home ad nauseum. Two hundred pages to point out that films are very similar to our dreams seems like overkill. He comes at his theory from every possible angle, but by the end I was wondering what the point was.
