Best Moveis To Analyze For Psychoanalytic Essays

Instead, they insist: "[T]he ZPD is not a place at all; it is an activity, an historical unity, the psychoanalytic socialness of human beings expressed as revolutionary activity, as Marx put it. In the next section, I will concentrate on the thematics of 'abjection' and 'motherhood' as explicated by psychoanalytic models of analysis in Aliens USA, James Cameron, Jung, played by Michael Fassbinder, is analyze to for to terms with professional differences between himself and his teacher in a relationship bound with oedipal undertones.

For instance, in Iran illegal videotapes of sci-fi and horror flicks are extremely popular. Several decades later, he saw the essay on television.

According to Freud's dogmatic assertion, the fear associated with uncanniness arises from the 'return of the repressed paternal threat of castration'. Attempts to add structuralist order to this rather glib biologism are doomed and unconvincing see Bresnick, In summary, we may posit following Moretti that if Mary Shelly's Frankenstein monster represents uncontrolled plebian impulses living labour and Bram Stoker's Dracula stands for parasitical and degenerate forms of capitalism dead labour , then 'our' alien creatures are an overdetermined embodiment of both. The ending of Dracula has a remarkably post-modern pessimistic undertone, for although the vampire is staked, his blood continues in the body of the boy who is born. Quincey Harker is "as much the son of Dracula as he is of the 'little band of men' after whom he is named" ibid. Likewise, the final installment of the Quartet, Alien Resurrection sees the irreversible mixing of Ripley and the creature's DNA- the 'mother of all clonings'! The first seven 'unsuccessful' clones are as disturbing as the eighth one is desirable. Like seven-of-nine in Star Trek Voyager we have been seduced by a mixture of human flesh and alien organs that makes the acidic Ripley 'unique'. If capitalism has its way, the next generation of proletarians will all be 'unique' or at least labour under the illusion that their human 'inadequacies' have been improved by cybernetic and genetic 'enhancements'. Ultimately, all terms employed to depict the border-creatures that disturb the 'unsullied' norms of bourgeois society, terms such as abject, uncanny, subaltern and liminal fall short on two grounds. First they are dehistoricized or in the case of Kristeva's abject only semi-historicized. Second, they portray the subject as individualized, self-contained and at times voiceless. The power of the alien creatures, however, resides in their ability to see the utilitarian good and collectively overcome enemies, hence if we are to examine them as the 'other', we must extend the term to the 'socio-historical other'. Concluding Remarks Freudian film analysts claim their doctrine is materialist and anti-religious. Freudian film analysts claim their doctrine is a complicated attempt to understand the psyche. I have tried to show that Freudianism is a de-historicized ideology which both 'over' and 'under' interprets the relationship between the subjective and the objective Timpanaro, Moreover, the turn to psychoanalysis by dejected Stalinist and Trotskyite film analysts is not progressive, as the choice between Freudian liberalism, Pavlovian Stalinism and for that matter Jungian Fascism, is a false one. In many ways, "the Freudian subjectless determinism and vulgar Marxism" are similar because they "lead toward a view of people in their weakness and impotence, rather than in their anger and strength" Keith Brooks, A few pages further on he comments: "The only subject to be found in Freudian psychology is the Freudian psychologist. Even the conflicts that are depicted intrapsychically are ultimately reducible to conflicting quantities of excitation" ibid, p With its predilections for dualisms of all sorts, as for instance between mind and body, internal and external or individual and society, Freudianism reintroduces the Kantian flaw at the heart of bourgeois epistemology. For Freud both the 'outside world' and the 'inner sanctum' of the unconscious are essentially unknowable. Freudian film analysts claim their doctrine is a marginal and persecuted one. I have tried to show that far from being marginal, Freudianism is now so entrenched in the mainstream of culture that it has become reactionary 'common sense' Vico, Freudian film analysts claim their doctrine is imaginative. I have tried to show that Freudianism, which might have been imaginative for a small section of the petit-bourgeoisie at a specific historical junction, is today the death of creative imagination Luria, Freudian film analysts claim their doctrine, which emphasizes content, can be combined with structuralism in order to deal with form and with Marxism in order to engage with socio-economic issues. I have tried to show that Freudianism's perennial over-emphasis on content at the expense of artistic form is an inherent weakness that cannot be overcome by utilizing reactionary epistemologies such as structuralism or post-structuralism. Vygotsky showed how in psychoanalysis, form is relegated "to the role of a 'bait' or vorlust that attracts a reader who is then relieved of his or her tension by the therapeutic effect of the content of an art work rather than its form … [Freudians] claim that art is essentially a transformation of our unconscious [processes] into social forms, i. What psychoanalysts refused to do is to describe and explain the social-psychological meaning of these forms" quoted in Kozulin, Furthermore, the attempt to synthesis Marxism and psychoanalysis a la Reich, Fromm, Kovel , which was seen by some as addressing this problem, is a non-starter as the superficial similarities between the two ignores that 'materialism', 'dialectics', 'individual', 'development', and 'depth-analysis' are employed by these two theories in fundamentally antagonistic ways Bonaffe, Freudianism is a bourgeois attempt to delete class and the social out of analysis and no amount of wishful thinking is going to hide that. It remains, despite its pretensions, an ideology of 'appearances'. Freudian film analysts claim their doctrine is eminently useful to the cause of Feminism. I have tried to show that built on unsound assumptions about the unconscious and containing as it does essentialist and reductionist attributes in abundance, it does not offer us a useful vantage point for critiquing sexuality or patriarchy Jackson, note As Ingleby 53 has correctly remarked: "Freud did not see political ideals, such as equality between the sexes, solidarity among mankind, or miniscule amounts. This is because, on his view of human nature, alienation in all of its forms is inescapable. American psychiatry thus did not suppress the 'radical vision' of psychoanalysis, as Jacoby or Althusser would have us believe: there was no such vision to suppress. However, the overwhelming majority of Freudian analyses of Aliens I have read, also lack the most basic tools for engaging with a number of vital issues raised by the Quartet. For instance, as already mentioned psychoanalysis accounts concentrate on content at the expense of form. The nature of time for example is rarely discussed. Aliens has something "of the character of the 'adventure time' that Bakhtin finds in the early Greek romances of Heliodorus, Achilles, Tatius and Chariton. In 'adventure time' neither historical nor psychological elements contribute to the textual sense of time…the nature of time in such texts is controlled by chance, what Bakhtin calls a veritable downpour of 'suddenlys' and 'at just that moments'" Flanagan, Ironically, the over-emphasis on content does not guarantee Psychoanalysis filtering all the significant issues. Class, for example, is one 'issue' that is constantly ignored note As Castel has pointed out: "Psychoanalysis was the main instrument for the reduction of social issues in general to questions of psychology. All the anxiety provoking themes in movies such as Them! Single queens fertilizing enough face-huggers to destroy all humanity, violent aliens who make slave laborers out of captured colonists using their bodies as vassals, "egg chambers" that are destroyed by the army using flame-throwers e. Jet Pilot , bad mothers who breed "in storm drains instead of the home" Rogin, 28 , and creatures that lack individuality. All this demands eternal vigilance against the 'enemy', especially as the kind of invasion is so pernicious as to be undetectable even by the victims themselves e. John Hurt in Alien. In 50s sci-fi the aliens usually gave themselves away through lack of emotion or idiosyncratic behaviour. For instance, people implanted by electronic control devices in Invaders from Mars alienate their families by pretending still to be themselves Rogin, Ripley, on the other hand, has to use sophisticated technology to confirm the existence of an unhatched seed inside herself in Alien3. Interestingly on the one issue where one would expect Freudianism to be of some use, the mother-child relationship between Ripley and Newt, the inability to contextualize concepts historically has detrimental effects. Psychoanalysis refuses to analyze itself. Otherwise, it would know that 'childhood' and 'motherhood' are not fixed universal entities. Furthermore, in Aliens, childhood memory loss is put down to various forms of repression of traumatic events. The simple explanation that Newt and children in general have difficulty retaining their memories because they do not possess the linguistic ability to articulate their experiences, is one theory never taken seriously by psychoanalysis. Aliens is the perfect metaphor for an age where the adult-child relationship is going through yet another periodic crisis, and where 'children' are denied 'childhood' and 'adults' are infantilized whilst being denied the 'irresponsibility' of childhood. Reich, Fromm and Marcuse once argued that a society, which runs on fairy tales, deliberately prevents its members from growing up. It is time to recognize the whole psychoanalytic doctrine as meta fairy tale infantilizing the proletariat in the hope of preserving the status quo. This state of affairs is increasingly unacceptable in daily life as it is in film theory. Only a few of the building blocks for a new approach to film analysis have been put forward in the present text. Further pieces can be observed here and there in the Bakhtinian approach to dialogic communication and the carnivalesque in the works of Stam , Kozulin's updating of Vygotsky's critique of art, Newman's 'post-modern' plays based on Vygotsky and Durmaz's application of activity theory to Wall Street dir. Oliver Stone, Although none of these authors has engaged with all three dimensions of analysis posited above, namely, the intra-, inter- and extra-personal facets of film theory, each has made a considerable contribution which, in time, will furnish a superior mode of comprehending film, cinema and the capitalist society that produces visual commodities. Once this is achieved, Freudian film analysts will occupy an honoured place right next to dinosaurs in museums dedicated to preserving the era of pre-history. Acknowledgment A number of people have commented on earlier drafts of this text with varying degrees of enthusiasm. In particular, I would like to thank Ian Parker closet Freudian for his acerbic criticisms and Ian Green ultra-Freudian for his downright hostile onslaught. Footnotes 1. This needs to be qualified. In certain parts of the world, the proletariat is developing a liking for sci-fi, which may have subversive elements. For instance, in Iran illegal videotapes of sci-fi and horror flicks are extremely popular. This may be due to the sensory deprivation that monologic cultures such as Islam subject their followers to. I am open to the suggestion that under some circumstances sci-fi and horror movies could be instrumental in enhancing proletarian desires and imagination. He then goes on to convincingly compare Close Encounters of the Third Kind USA, Spielberg, with The Ten Commandments, the former representing "an infiltration of religious codes into a popular cinematic genre to the point of saturation. Alternatively the same primordial menace was described by Giambattista Vico's discussion of Greek ideas of chaos: "They imagined it as Orcus, a misshapen monster which devoured all things…the prime matter of natural things which, formless itself, is greedy for forms and devours all forms" Quoted in Larson, Once chaos has been associated with "the despised mass…flowing, slimy, teeming" [read: proletarian disorder], the stability and military order of authoritarian capitalism can be posited as salvation. This attempt to project an ordered cosmology onto the unpredictable terrain of the class struggle has ancient roots, as Norman Cohen makes clear in his monumental, Cosmos, Chaos, and the World to Come The Egyptian evil god Apophis, for instance, "was an embodiment of primordial chaos…he could only scream. And he operated always in darkness" ibid, p Simply a groundless transposition to the mind of a principle of 'minimum expenditure of energy' that is as old as the hills. What began as an unorthodox petit-bourgeois doctrine at the margins of epistemology amongst the European intelligentsia has become the commonsense bourgeois grand-narrative of film analysis, and the rest of us are dragged in its wake into the abyss of imbecility. Timpanaro has an even harsher take on the trinity of id, ego, and super-ego: "Despite Freud's excursions into pre-history and persistent attempts at biological rationale…the Id and Ego are two facets of bourgeois man. The Id is his corruption, his egoism, his incapacity for love without hatred. The Ego is the superficial veneer of respectability which conceals his brutality…the Super-Ego is the strict ethical ideal of 'duty'…" 8. Millet makes another good point: "it is interesting that Freud should imagine the young female's fears center about castration rather than rape- a phenomenon which girls are in fact, and with reason, in dread of, since it happens to them and castration does not. Girls, he informs us, now relinquish some of their anxiety over their castration, but never cease to envy and resent penises and so while 'impotent' they remain in the world a constant hazard to the well-provided male. There are overtones here of a faintly capitalist antagonism between the haves and have-nots" ibid, p Freud denounced similar moves to contextualize his doctrine as early as "We have all heard the interesting attempt to explain psychoanalysis as a product of the peculiar character of Vienna as a city…Now honestly I am no local patriot; but this theory about psychoanalysis always seems to me quite exceptionally stupid" Sigmund Freud, "On the History of the Psychoanalytic Movement", Collected Works London, Freud was a cosmopolitan bourgeois who drew ideas from a myriad of cultures and was not intellectually bound by a nineteenth-century Vienna. However, his attempts and similar gestures by his contemporary supporters to portray psychoanalysis as too lofty to be stained by the 'muck' of historicity remain unconvincing. Admittedly Freud understood this, even though he forgot his own adage later on and his disciples repressed it further still for fear of exposing their lack of imagination: "We must separate writers who, like the ancient authors of epics and tragedies, take over their material ready-made, from writers who seem to originate their own material" Freud, Now, which group would contemporary Freudian film analysts fall into, I wonder? Furthermore, "subliminal perception and the Freudian unconsciousness also differ in their mode of operation. Subliminal perception is a very general recognition of a previously encountered stimulus. The [Freudian] unconsciousness is full knowledge minus consciousness which directs complex behavior every time a relevant stimulus is encountered. Related to this 'pop feminism' is the problem of 'individuation'. Here Schwarzenegger indulges in cross-dressing to get through passport control on Mars, but crucially the robotic mask cannot contain his masculinity. Linda Mizejewski adds: "The visual dynamics also clearly represent the male giving birth to himself through the machine of his own construction - certainly a metonymic reference to Schwarzenegger's real-life bodybuilding. Zhora is reduced to a broken doll…" Su-Lin Wee, Pris a pleasure model replicant is shown 'sizzling' about at the point of death, like a witch being burnt at the stake. In both cases, the dead woman's body becomes the focus of the male gaze. This metaphysical 'luvie-duvie' position of Kristeva's is testimony to the fact that her so-called 'Marxist' phase was no more than the superficial dalliance of a petit-bourgeois student with big words. This turn is part of the logical trajectory that horror film has taken, "a gradual, inexorable surrender to the allure of the visible, … that this genre's current aesthetic impasse and moribund status is precisely the result of its wholesale capitulation to the representation of horror as that which is corporeal, physical- that is, seen" Grant in A. Kuhn, To emphasize this I would remind the reader that modern sci-fi "do for us what the biblical epics did for the fifties and sixties; reactionary and defeatist they present fantasies of the patterns of the past vanquishing the possibilities of the future" Larson, Why is the phallus the privileged signifier? Why is our culture patriarchal? Bishop the 'artificial person' not the organic variety who makes a brief appearance at the end of Alien3 is 'black' as is Data on Star Trek. References Ben-Yehuda, N. Grendel, and now Alien', Film quarterly, vol. Rather than being the spectator's look of illusory and deceptive mastery, it is the point in the film image where this mastery fails. Instead of reducing the film screen to the mirror in which spectators can identify themselves, Copjec understands the screen as the site of the gaze, which is the object motivating the spectator's desire. Psychoanalytic film theory had been too eager to think in terms of spectator identification and thus forgot about the role of spectator desire. According to psycho-analysis, desire is triggered by a missing object—an absence. Though the camera has the effect of rendering everything it photographs visible, it cannot create a field of unlimited visibility. Though films may work to dis-guise the limits of visibility, these limits are actually necessary for engaging the spectator's desire. The spectator desires to see a film only if it remains absent from the field of vision. It is this absence, not the illusion of gaining visual omnipotence, that draws the spectator into the events on the screen. The spectator thus seeks an object in the filmic image that remains irreducible to that image and irretrievable there. The encounter with this absence is traumatic for the spectator, shattering the ego and dislodging the spectator from her or his position of illusory safety. As films often make us aware, we as spectators are not separate from the screen but present there as an absence. When films push us toward the recognition of this unconscious involvement, we confront the public elaboration of our unconscious desire. Though there is an implicit political valence to this turn in psychoanalytic film theory, it breaks from previous versions by refusing to place psychoanalytic insights in the service of a pre-formulated political program. Instead, Copjec's psychoanalytic film theory takes unconscious desire—the founding idea of psychoanalysis—as its starting point for understanding the cinema. In this sense, there is a homology between the emergence of Lynch's filmmaking and this innovation in psychoanalytic film theory. Both focus on the role of unconscious desire in film rather than on the process of identification. With her revision of the traditional understanding of the gaze, Copjec authored a revolution in psychoanalytic film theory. Only last month, Nanni Moretti, dubbed 'the Italian Woody Allen', won the Palme d'Or at Cannes, for a film in which he plays a psychoanalyst whose life of witticisms receives a tragic jolt. At least since the Seventies, film theorists such as Laura Mulvey and Christian Metz have used psychoanalysis to interpret movies, applying its tools to both content and form. In , Christian Metz wrote in his seminal book Psychoanalysis and Cinema that he hoped this interpretative arrangement might some day be reciprocal. Yet it still remains unclear how film, or film theory, might influence the practice of psychoanalysis. Andrea Sabbadini says that the cinema's effect is 'indirect', and that analysts who write about film do so almost as a hobby, something that is detached from the daily business of the talking cure. That's not to say, however, that psychoanalysts are not affected by films the way anyone else might be. Alain de Mijolla, who will be chairing a panel at the festival, believes that the experience of seeing a particular film as a child subliminally influenced his later decision to become an analyst. Mijolla was six when, just before the Second World War broke out, he was taken to see a rather gruelling film because it starred his then hero, Maurice Chevalier. Later on, he had no memory of its content, a form of forgetfulness so intense, he says, that it should be 'referred to rather as a repression'. Several decades later, he saw the movie on television. Chevalier plays a man unjustly accused of a series of murders. The real killer is found out on the basis of psychological interrogation by the police. At one point, the assassin says to the detective: 'Have you read Freud? Perhaps fror some the cinema always brings childhood experiences to mind.

As films often make us aware, we as spectators are not separate from the screen but present there as an absence. Instead, psychoanalysis and cinema become locatable as best of a shared project that emerges out of a recognition of the power of the unconscious.

Not only that, their position implies that there were no problems with the Oedipus Complex in its classical form as posited by Freud. The Piano Teacher beautifully portrays the relationship between repression, displacement, and violence in Freudian psychoanalysis. We see a knife in a horror movie as a phallic symbol or a male authority figure as a manifestation of oedipal relations. Freudian critics could also be faulted on this. The 'oral rape' scene when Ash tries to kill Ripley and the 'panty scene' when Ripley gets into her space-suite, very, very slowly in Alien, the med-lab scene in Aliens when Ripley and Newt are attacked by face-huggers , the 'licking scene' in Alien3 when an alien gets close enough to Ripley to smell the chest-buster inside her , and the 'cloning scene' in Alien Resurrection, are testimony to the directors' conscious use of misogynist film techniques.
