ENGL 4402 Film and Film Theory (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course will put film into dialogue with film theory—especially with psychoanalytic and feminist film theory. We will analyze films by directors such as Godard, Hitchcock, Kieslowski, Almodvar, Haneke, Egoyan, Campion, Lynch, and Kiarostami. We may look at recent political films such as Standard Operating Procedure and Waltz with Bashir. Kristeva's concept of the thought-specular, which involves the absorption by the film of the spectator's psychic material as a way of working-through it will be given much attention.
