    1. German expressionism is about the hypnotic power of images In this book, Andriopoulos deciphers the metaphor of hypnosis as a statement about the sometimes dangerous powers of cinema as an art of vision According to this cultural perspective, cinema is a technology so powerful that transforms spectators into passive automata and has profound psychological consequences Fascinating book.
