Fantasy Film proposes an innovative approach to the study of this most popular cinematic genre. Engaging with the diversity of tones, forms and styles that fantasy can take in the cinema, the book examines the value and significance of fantasy across a wide range of key films. This volume extends critical understanding beyond the often narrowly defined boundaries of what is seen as "fantasy". Fantasy Film uses key concepts in film studies - such as authorship, representation, history,genre, coherence and point of view - to interrogate the fantasy genre and establish its parameters. A wide range of films are held up to close scrutiny to illustrate the discussion. Moving from Alfred Hitchcock's dark thrillers to Vincente Minnelli's vibrant musicals, from George Méliès' 1904 Voyage à travers l'impossible to the X-Men series, the creative dexterity and excitement of film fantasy is evoked and explored. The book will be invaluable to students and fans of the fantasy genre.

Pan's Labyrinth, Stranger Than Fiction, The Science of Sleep ... Surreal and fantastic cinema is enjoying a resurgence. A movement that goes back to the earliest days of cinema, it provides an exemplary case study to introduce all sorts of concepts--auteur study, representations, 'shocking cinema', textual analysis. Neil Coombs's guide is ideal for students new to the field, providing an explanation of the origins of Surrealism followed by detailed analyses from the history of 'world cinema', including: Bu�uel's The Phantom of Liberty, Svankmajer's Alice, Cocteau's Orph�e, Lynch's Lost Highway, Jeunet and Caro's The City of Lost Children, and the work of screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich) and director David Cronenberg (A History of Violence).

Beyond the frontiers of reason there extends the vast, shadowy world of fantasy, where monsters lurk in the gloomy depths, vampires flit across the face of the moon, and imagination reigns supreme. Franz Rottensteiner explores the world of fantasy as it appears in the literature of the West. The dark side of the mind, that fascinating and perilous Dream State, has produced its own literature of the weird, the uncanny, and the demoniac. Since the beginning of time, storytellers have told of remote and exotic realms filled with ghosts, werewolves, ghouls, and zombies. From the clinical horrors of Edgar Allan Poe to the nightmare bureaucracy of Kafka; from Frankenstein to Alice in Wonderland; from Rider Haggard to C.S. Lewis; from the Jewish ghetto of the golem to the decayed castle of Gormenghast - The Fantasy Book presents a spectral march of figures and themes from the edge of reality, and beyond.

We live in a country fantasising about its ability to run up debts seemingly without end, to enjoy high-paid employment for which it is not qualified, to project military power that it does not possess and in general to assume, in defiance of the evidence, a superior economic and political position in relation to most of the rest of the world. Then there is the apparent conviction that limitless growth can co-exist with environmental protection, that the over-borrowed and abundantly staffed state machine is actually being courageously pruned even while its payroll rises and, finally, that the just-around-the-corner radiant future is one in which will work in the 'creative economy'. Welcome to Fantasy Island. He may be the most spectacular election winner in modern British political history but Blair leaves behind him a seedy dreamworld mired in debt and bankruptcy, drifting into a crisis of employment and employability, hallucinating into existence a diplomatic and military role that it cannot possibly afford. It's time to take stock of the future he and Brown have mapped out for us while there's still time to do something about it.
