// The Visionary Movie: A Manifesto //
Over the past forty years the dominant art form in America has shifted from the novel to the movie. Yet for the most part, the movie--and the popular movie, in particular--is not addressed with the same level of critical analysis as the novel. The purpose of this site is to remedy that lack.
