- The Dark Heart of Pop Cinema by Michael Atkinson
- Author: Michael Atkinson
(Limelight). Looking back on a century that witnessed the emergence of motion pictures to become, almost immediately, a dominant cultural force in our lives, this penetrating and provocative book argues that “movies (like cathedrals) cannot help but display the subconscious impulses oftheir society.” From D.W. Griffith to the Marx Brothers to film noir, “what are conceived and consumed as innocent pop movies … are in fact manifestations of wild horror, superstitious ignorance, fatalistic dread and bigoted savagery.”

Marva Dobbs has a life most people would envy. An American who has lived in Paris for most of her adult life, she runs a popular African-American soul food restaurant, and her thirty-year marriage has produced a beautiful grown-up daughter. So why is she jeopardizing everything for a fling with her sous-chef, a mysterious twenty-eight-year-old Algerian man named Hassan?
Marva begins to ask herself the same question when she returns from summer vacation to find that Hassan is missing, and that he is the main suspect in the investigation into the bombing of a building in Paris that left one man dead. And then she disappears, leaving her bewildered daughter and secretive husband to put the pieces of the puzzle together.
