Beginning with Freud's encounter with the spectacle of hysteria on display in fin-de-siecle Paris, Psychoanalysis and Cinema: the Play of Shadows explores the encounter between psychoanalysis and cinema as distinct, but converging, ways of thinking about dream and desire, image and illusion, shock and sexuality. The book offers a detailed reading of the texts and concepts which generated the field of psychoanalytic film theory, as well as suggesting substantial rethinking of the paradigms at work in psychoanalytic film theory.
