But for this integration to succeed, chance must be elevated to the status of primary cause. Logic, genius and the zeitgeist still have significant roles to play but mainly operate insofar as they enhance, or constrain, the operations of a chance combinatorial process."--Jacket

This review of cinematic creativity and aesthetics is confined to scientific studies carried out by a multidisciplinary group of researchers ...
