What happens in the dark between the screen and the audience that makes movies so exciting to so many? Jon Boorstin believes that every movie is really three movies running at once: the "voyeuristic" movie (the logic of the film), the "vicarious" movie (the emotional hold of the film), and the "visceral" movie (the primal thrill the film elicits). Here he examines these elements using his own experiences as well as those of well-known film makers - from Hitchcock to Spielberg - to demonstrate how the moviemaking process works. He shows how film makers use light, space and sound to create a world; tells what makes an actor a star; explains why he thinks "Citizen Kane" is a great film and what he feels is wrong with the ending of "Fatal Attraction". The book is illustrated with stills from films and line-drawings of film techniques.
