From Benny Hill to Martin Scorsese, reality TV to the political correctness debate, yuppies in peril to sensitive androids, Rosanne to Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Phantasms is a fascinating exploration of popular culture in the early 1990s: its trends, buzzwords, blockbusters and oddities. Focusing on the powerful dreams and drives that underlie the popular imagination, Phantasms is a passionate and engaging look at the products of our culture from one of Australia's most inspired commentators.
