Film and Female Consciousness

    By

    Film and Female Consciousness analyses three contemporary films that offer complex and original representations of women's thoughtfulness and individuality: In the Cut 2003, Lost in Translation 2003 and Morvern Callar 2002. Lucy Bolton compares these recent works with well-known and influential films that offer more familiar treatments of female subjectivity: Klute 1971, The Seven Year Itch 1955 and Marnie 1964. Considering each of the older, celebrated films alongside the recent, unconventional works illustrates how contemporary filmmaking techniques and critical practices can work together to create provocative depictions of on-screen female consciousness.Bolton's approach demonstrates how the encounter between the philosophy of Luce Irigaray and cinema can yield a fuller understanding of the fundamental relationship between film and philosophy. Furthermore, the book explores the implications of this approach for filmmakers and spectators, and suggests Irigarayan models of authorship and spectatorship that reinvigorate the notion of women's cinema.
