Michiko KakutaniWhat Mr. Thomson does most powerfully in this volume is conjure the magic of movies - what Jean-Paul Sartre once called "the frenzy on the wall." He writes about the "delicious unreason," the madness that draws us into the fantasy world of the screen, articulating our own hidden desires and fears. And he suggests that "the trick of movies" may have less to do with art than with a drug-like bewitchment of our brains.
