Free download ☆ Murder and the Movies 102 Classics such as SevenKind Hearts and Coronets Strangers on a Train The ConformistThe Godfather and The Shining he offers a disconcerting sense of how the form of movies makes us accomplices in this sinister narrative process By turns seductive and astringent very This thoughtful and readable book is about the age old uestion of aesthetic spectatorship why do we derive pleasure from observing evil acted out In deriving enjoyment from the spectacle of suffering here murder aren t we complicit mixed up in the wrongdoing of others even if only through the desire or imagination Aristotle raised this issue all those years ago but he dived into technical aspects of plot without letting the moral issues get under his skin Thomson is stong on the uestions and doubtsThomson s writing is always casually thoughtful mixing movie history first person asides and direct address to the reader He is charming company open and elouent and with an encyclopaedic knowledge of film always puts neat examples within our reach This is the right style and tone for a conspiratorial chat about what we really get from moviesThomson raises moral uestions of great complexity Do we delegate our evil desires to films creating the distance necessary for plausible deniability Is there a fatal complicity between shooting a film and cold blooded shooting Worryingly having raised these issues so brilliantly it is a bit frustrating that they tend to vanish or get replaced by the next beguiling set of thoughts At times the book becomes a list of films that rehearse real life murders or female killers or sniper films Then it draws to a closeAt the end of the book he praises Akomfrah s video installation Vertigo Sea which features 3 screens of ocean scenes Thomson says this sets up many fluent associations half heard rhymes or crossed references That is Thomson s own style as well I would add the sense of depths but also a mobile surface An enjoyable journey just don t worry about your destination
