Mirkina Z.A. Cinematography of the Shadowed Depths of One's Heart (Critical Review)

Published in journal "Philology: scientific researches", 2015-3 in rubric "The stream of books", pages 275-278.

Resume: Works of a famous researcher RomanPerelshteyn focus on archetypical themes of cinematographic art. Perelshteyn studies these topics as a certain code giving us an insight into the world of a filmmaker. For instance, in his book 'Visible and Invisible Worlds in Cinematographic Art' Roman Perelshteyn manages to reveal dramaturgical intentions of a number of significant achievements in the cinematographic art of the XXth century. At his timeFerencz Liszt called his 12 etudes 'transcendental'. So what does this transcendental cinematography being analyzed by Roman Perelshteyn tell us about? The author applies universal spiritual traditions allowing the cinematography of the 'shadowed heart depths' to contact with the human inner world. In her critical review Mirkina demonstrates that the book of Roman Perelshteyn is devoted to the unbreakable bond between the visible and invisible, inner and outer. The author tells us about the movies that have the 'spiritual contemplation' as part of them. It is also indicated that the majority of modern films are about the 'outer'. However, this makes the analysis of spiritual requests and supreme states of mind discussed by Roman Perelshteyn even more precious.
