(p.108) CHAPTER 5 Freud and Film Redux
Surface and Depth

Michael T. Gilmore (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter concentrates on the visual and cognitive extensions represented by the movies and by psychotherapy. It reviews the curious affinities between the domesticating of Freudian doctrine and the emergence of Hollywood as a globally dominant purveyor of filmic entertainment. Frank Norris’s novel McTeague, published in the same year (1899) as Freud’s The Interpretation of Dreams, supplies a coda on the country’s romance with the cinematic and the psychotherapeutic.

Keywords:   Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams, psychotherapy, cinema, Hollywood, Frank Norris, McTeague
