About Cinemapsychologia

submit to reddit

Cinema is a culturally engrossing popular art form, and yet it can be an intensely soul-seeking private affair. Ingmar Bergman, the famous Swedish film director passed away in 2007, said: "Film as dream, film as music. No form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight room of the soul." Psychology, on the other hand, grew out of the same branch of religious inquiry that gave rise to philosophy. Psychology itself is a marriage between philosophy and science. The questions it asks belong to a more philosophical realm ("who am I?"). The methods it uses to pursue such questions fall under a more scientific realm, though with the coming age of post-modernism, that may go through a drastic change yet.

Films reviewed and interpreted here - in writing or other forms - will be mostly filtered through the lens of the site's psychologically leaning editor, save for articles from less psychologically minded guests. Cinema Psychologia is concerned with content as well as form; that is, the critique will aim at the film as a film, and the film's content as related to psychological ideas.

Like most unions, there will be kinks - hopefully making the journey all the more interesting. With luck, there may be more pleasure than pain, though growing pains can not be avoided.

Enjoy your stay.
