In his nuanced discussion of “The Uncanny” Freud’s strongest example of Das Unheimliche is the secret body of woman, man’s estranged home. That desired/feared source and goal goes back to Oedipal longing. Love-relationships are, therefore, often based on two derivatives of Oedipal longing: The Deep Woman (return to original connection) and The Modeled Woman (return to original passion). Alfred Hitchcock, always Freudian, illustrates these two kinds of love-objects through Midge (as Deep Woman) and Madeline (as Modeled Woman) in his much-admired masterpiece, Vertigo.
Learning Objectives: After attending this presentation, participants will be able to
– Identify the female gaze as having a vitalizing or castrating effect on men who are far more vulnerable than feminist theory, with its emphasis on the objectifying “male gaze,” acknowledges.
– Discuss how the whorl in the bun in Carlotta Valdez’s seductive hair style represents the hidden female body, the whirling circle at the center of the film’s cinematic image-making.
– Describe how to untangle the intricate web of truth and fiction that weaves together in the film’s complicated narrative presentation.
