 About the Book 

McGinn examines how movies work on our minds: how looking into the movie screen allows us to imagine the characters portrayed and know their thoughts and feelings- how what we see on the screen can seem to recapitulate the workings of consciousnessMoreMcGinn examines how movies work on our minds: how looking into the movie screen allows us to imagine the characters portrayed and know their thoughts and feelings- how what we see on the screen can seem to recapitulate the workings of consciousness itself- how the screen image is ideally suited to capturing both physical and emotional movements, depicting human feeling in all its variations- how heightened reality characterizes both film narrative and dreams- and. how our connection to and perception of movies enables us to better understand aspects of our own nature.
