Possessed : hypnotic crimes, corporate fiction, and the invention of cinema

Author: Stefan Andriopoulos
Publisher: Chicago : University of Chicago Press, 2008.
Series: Cinema and modernity.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Silent cinema explored themes of mesmerism, possession and corporate bodies that subsumed individual identities. At the same time, critics were accusing film itself of exerting a hypnotic influence over its audience. This book shows that this anxiety over being governed by an outside force was a pervasive concern of the period.
