MEDIA REVIEWS

"Daniel Sullivan and Jeff Greenberg, professors of psychology at the University of Arizona, have compiled a fantastic selection of essays from several authors presenting various approaches to death in the cinema. This collection explores the issue of human mortality as portrayed in film, analyzing our fear of death and our desire to overcome it. ... The book, overall, is gripping and a must-read ... ." (Afra Siddiqui, Film Matters, Vol. 6 (3), 2015)
