The woman's picture, the male trauma narrative, and mind-game films-three ways that American cinema tests the limits: of what victims can suffer, what the body can bear, and what the mind can understand.

They tell us much about the way America engages in dialogue with its own divided nature and nation, demonstrated across its most cherished and characteristic of art forms: the movies.
