This book is about a little girl whose life has been strewn between the rocks and gravel that accumulated over a life time. It was the possibilities that kept her going. She grew up a loner even though she had a big family. She grew up in a Christian home and believed in God that no matter how inexplicable or unbelievable things can be, miracles are real and can occur without regards to the nature of things. Everyone she trusted would let her down and hurt her. She was between a rock and a hard place; she felt lonely, unwanted, and confused, as if she was in a dark room with no exit. Eventually, she met and fell in love with a handsome young man, the love of her life—or so she thought. She was relieved, with more confidence; life was good, and it seems like there was a bright light at the end of the tunnel. For a moment, everything was going well, until dilemma stroke. The secrets she had to keep almost took her life because she could not share it. She had to put up with a lot of discomfort and even misery in her life that had been inflected by people she trusted, but somehow she felt she was to be blamed. She always knew in her heart and mind that God promised never to leave or forsake her.

The Spectral Body: Aspects of the Cinematic Oeuvre of Istvà;n Szabò; analyses some of the films made by Academy Award winner Hungarian filmmaker Istvà;n Szabò; to establish an interpretative matrix disclosing the root of haunting effects in the visual and the narrative levels of the diegeses. By combining two distinct and often incongruous lines of psychoanalytic thought (by Nicolas Abraham and Jacques Lacan), Zoltà;n Dragon argues that these films are fuelled by the work of a phantom on all levels, hiding the secrets of the family history of the characters and producing uncanny visual scenarios to make the act of hiding even more effective. The book brings the reader into the realm of the "phantom text" generating the film texts and crypt screens of the oeuvre, and investigates the causes of undiscussible and painful secrets that propel some pivotal characters to reappear in subsequent films, apparently driven by a compulsion to continue their narration, failing to finish their stories even when they appear to be successful. The Spectral Body: Aspects of the Cinematic Oeuvre of Istvà;n Szabò; introduces a visual reinterpretation of Abraham's phantom theory that opens up possibilities for an alternative way of studying film.I first saw this work in the form of a full and detailed draft. I was impressed by the boldness of the ideas, the attempt to integrate and work with different theoretical positions and the quite extraordinary reading of the films of Istvà;n Szabò;. There was clearly a powerful and creative and original intelligence at work. A further draft accomplished one important thing that had been missing from the first one - the direct analysis of the visual material and its contribution to the overall narrative and theoretical framework.The work employs a psychoanalytic framework with some key concepts such as 'the phantom' drawn from the work of Torok and Abraham. This theory is fairly well known but it has not, to my knowledge, been used in any extensive way in the analysis of film texts before. Zoltan also makes reference to Freud and uses some Lacanian ideas in his analysis at the level of the visual. These multiple theoretical references are not inconsistent; they are finely judged and are most productive. Theory is never used as a grid to be imposed on the material. There is a fine balance between theory and textual analysis that is hard to achieve, but it is successful here.I think that the position that Zoltan Dragon has forged for himself and from which he writes, is a highly original and interesting one. He has been most successful in developing his framework in relation to Szabò;'s oeuvre which he knows in the greatest detail. His readings of that oeuvre are rich and powerful and will provoke considerable debate in the world of film studies and also of psychoanalytical studies.Parveen Adams, Core Teaching Faculty, London Consortium

“My name’s Ryan,” he said clearly. “How in the world did you get in my room?” “You know, Kay, leaving doors open the way you do this window is just an invitation for someone to come in.” He smiled at the thought. “Like me. Unfortunately you wouldn’t want people like me coming through your window.” “And why’s that? You’re going to hurt me? You’re going to steal from my house? Dude you have no idea who you’re messing with.” “That’s where your wrong. I know exactly who I’m dealing with, and in turn that’s where you fall short because you have no idea who you’re dealing with. If you did, you’d be begging for me not to kill you.” I swallowed hard knowing that he wasn’t a normal burglar. He’s someone that knows me, but just like he said I didn’t know him. Did he know I have powers? I quickly thought of pain but all he did was smile. Did he know what I was doing? He stepped forward as he tapped the side of his temple. “Don’t try to get in here little girl because you’re nowhere near my strength. In fact you’re the complete opposite of what people described you as.” My eyes widened in shock. He knew who I was and what I could do. “But how--” “How I know you? Simple, you learn about that person. That’s what you do when you go after someone before you kill them.”
