Beginning with a penetrating study of five cornfield sequences - including The Wizard of Oz, Arizona Dream, and Signs - Murray Pomerance journeys through a vast array of cinematic moments, technical methods, and laborious collaborations from the 1930s to the 200s to show how the viewer's experience of "reality" is put in context, challenged, and wilfully engaged. Four meditations deal with "reality effects" from different philosophical and technical angles. "Vivid Rivals" assesses active participation and critical judgement in seeing effects with works such as Defiance, Cloverfield, Knowing, and Thelma & Louise. "The Two of Us" considers double placement and doubled experience with films such as The Prestige, Niagara and A Stolen Life. "Being There" discusses cinematic performance and the problems of believability, highlighting such films as Gran Torino, The Manchurian Candidate, In Harm's Way, and other films. "Fairy Land" explores the art of scenic backing, focusing on the fictional world of Brigadoon, which borrows from both hard-edged realism and evocative landscape painting." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Contains illustrations, bibliographic references and index ISBN: 9780813560588 More info
