This stunningly illustrated volume traces the history of obsessive love and erotic fixation in the cinema. It explores how seminal films such as "The Blue Angel" (1930), "Peter Ibbetson" (1935), and "Phantom of the Opera" (1943) set a precedent for films to follow."Cinema of Obsession" is divided into several sections that examine the themes of obsessive love and fixation from different perspectives - including the illicit love affair, male control, and love-on-the-run - by closely examining films such as "Last Tango in Paris" (1972), "Vertigo" (1958), and "Wild at Heart" (1990). The final section rounds of the book by concentrating on the female perspective of obsessive love through such works as "The Piano" (1993), "Fatal Attraction" (1987), and "Vanilla Sky" (2001).
