In Reality Transformed Irving Singer offers a new approach to the philosophy of film.Returning to the classical debate between realists and formalists, he shows how the opposingpositions may be harmonized and united. Singer concentrates on questions about appearance andreality, the visual and the literary, and the interplay between communication as a goal andalienation as a hazard in films of every sort. In three exemplary chapters, he provides suggestivereadings of Woody Allen's The Purple Rose of Cairo, Luchino Visconti's Death in Venice, and JeanRenoir's The Rules of the Game. Reality Transformed will interest the general reader as well asstudents in all fields related to film studies.
