Photoplay and the Mind Cynthia Man

18 Apr

The shift of  focus in films from representation of factual events to the abstract wonderings and longings of the mind is best portrayed in the difference between the two films The Kleptomaniac  and Sherlock Jr.  While films of the past portrayed a higher social message to those viewing the work,  as the audience shifted from poor immigrants to those of the higher class,  the plots of these films shifted as well as to entertain rather than educate its  viewers.   In such a way,  film has provided a means of escapism to its fans
