From the Back Cover:
Relive those films you’ve loved and see how they open us up to our private world of fantasy!
What does walking in space (Gravity) tell us about our first steps? What can Batman and the Joker (The Dark Knight) tell us about twins? How can a popular comedy (Grand Budapest Hotel) use psychological defenses to protect us from the impact of overwhelming trauma?
These pieces will appeal to those interested in psychoanalysis and those who are just interested in people; above all, they are written for those of you who enjoy a good movie and a good read.
Dr. Herbert Stein has been writing about films and what they tell us about the inner workings of our minds for over twenty-five years, with discussions of over 70 films. He is in clinical practice in New York City, has been the long time editor of The Bulletin of the Psychoanalytic Association of New York and is on the faculty of the Institute for Psychoanalytic Education affiliated with NYU School of Medicine where he is currently the Director.
