The latent symbolism in film imagery can be psychoanalyzed just like the imagery in dreams. This work applies to film the psychoanalytic techniques of Sigmund Freud, Erik Erikson, Carl Jung, Alfred Adler, Joseph Campbell, Otto Rank and Rollo May, providing a fundamental understanding of film symbols and structure. It offers a comprehensive and eclectic approach to film analysis, using a broad variety of theories and examples from both classic and contemporary movies, from Dracula (1930) to American Beauty (1999). The final chapter applies all the previously discussed techniques to one film, Malcolm X (1992). The work boasts a filmography and bibliography and is illustrated with film stills.

Die Rezeption von Filmen und Fernsehsendungen ist sowohl vom Wissen und den Emotionen der Zuschauer als auch von sozialen Kontexten abhängig. Es reicht daher nicht aus, die „Sprache“ von Film und Fernsehen zu analysieren, sondern es müssen auch die Form, die Gestaltung, die Dramaturgie und der Inhalt auf die Kontexte der Rezeption bezogen werden. Dieses Standardwerk von Lothar Mikos ist eine erprobte Anleitung zur Durchführung von Film- und Fernsehanalysen, inklusive aktueller Entwicklungen wie Transmedia Storytelling oder 3D-Film. Mit aufschlussreichen Beispielanalysen zu „Herr der Ringe“, „Terminator“, „Game of Thrones“, „Germany‘s Next Topmodel“ sowie Filmen des „Marvel Cinematic Universe“. Prof. Dr. Lothar Mikos lehrt Medien- und Kommunikationswissenschaft an der Filmuniversität Babelsberg. Konrad Wolf in Potsdam.
