 Freud's concept of the unconscious is said to have overturned the idea of the Cartesian subject. Discuss two films in which this challenge to the "rational self" is explored. You should explore the ways in which this challenge is represented in terms of the narrative, the mise en scene and the characterisation of the main protagonists.
Discuss at least two key sequences in your chosen films in detail, i.e. discuss the way the shots, editing etc. articulate the ideas of the scene.
 Perhaps no other Freudian idea has been so influential on Hollywood story telling as Freud's concept of the Oedipal complex. Discuss two films (or one film in great detail) in which the Freudian Oedipus complex is explored or is at least the main"driving force" of the narrative. You can choose either to stick to a classic Freudian reading of the film or combine this with a Lacanian view of the "Oedipal triangle".
Discuss at least two key sequences in your chosen film(s) in detail, i.e. discuss the way the shots, editing etc. articulate the ideas of the scene.
 Discuss a film in which Lacan's notion of the "misrecognition of the self" isarticulated. You should relate this to Lacan's concept of desire and discuss how these concepts can be seen to operate within the film (or films) you have chosen. If you choose more than one film to examine, you must contrast and compare the cinematographic techniques (mise en scene, editing, narrative) of the two or more films in terms of how they articulate Lacanian notions.
 Discuss up to three films (you can choose to examine only one film in detail if you like) which seem to have as their theme "liberation through sexuality". You must relate this theme to the ideas of Wilhelm Reich. Evaluate the filmmaker's views of 2 sexuality and compare them to Reich's ideas. Discuss at least two key sequences in your chosen film(s) in detail, i.e. discuss the way the shots, editing etc. articulate the ideas of the scene and how they relate to your reading of Reich's concepts of sexuality.
 Discuss a film in which you think you can identity at least a couple of Jungian Archetypes (this film
cannot be Star Wars!!). Examine the role of these archetypes in terms of the films narrative and characterisations. Compare these archetypes to those found in myths, fairytales or folkstories. Explain the dramatic function of these archetypes in the film you are discussing and the deeper symbolisation they represent.
 Examine a film which embodies the "heros journey" structure (again, this film
cannot be Star Wars!!). Explain Campbell's concept of the hero and relate it to the film you are examining. Find another film which can be contrasted with the film you are discussing (i.e. the narrative or characterisations either embody a different type of heros journey or, despite superficial resemblances, do not represent this structure at all.
movies i like that may have NOTHING to do with the questions
