I highly recommend this uniquely fascinating book which uses a Jungian perspective to illuminate the Feminine as seen in such recent culturally diverse film classics as Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Brokeback Mountain (Widescreen Edition), Mira Nair's Monsoon Wedding (The Criterion Collection), and the 2007 Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Language Film The Lives of Others; see the table of contents on the product page for the entire list. Films by the great directors are also discussed: Hitchcock's Notorious and Kurosawa's Rhapsody in August. It contains a reprinted seminal article "The Anima in Film" discussing the life force aspect of the Feminine. Other aspects include the mother, puella, and the waif, among others. The writing style is refreshing and alive!
