How many acts of murder have each of us followed on a screen? What does that say about us? Do we remain law-abiding citizens who wouldn't hurt a fly? While using humor and a wide range of cultural allusions, the author of The Big Screen unpacks such classics such as Seven, Kind Hearts and Coronets, Strangers on a Train, The Conformist, The Godfather, and The Shining, and offers a disconcerting sense of how the form of movies makes us accomplices in this sinister narrative process.
