Book Description:

Films provide a window into our society. What do recent films like In the Valley of Elah, Stop-Loss, and The Hurt Locker really say about the war in Iraq? Does the popularity of fantasy-based movies like Spiderman and the Harry Potter series mean Americans are suffering from escapism?
