Psychoanalyzing Hitler and considering him as a genius – not just a fellow, but a
fellow artist, an 'artist-phenomenon' – , Mann ultimately grants this phenomenon '
the need of a certain shuddering admiration'. To be sure, these ruminations
require resolute historicization: they are pre-war and, like Chaplin's more famous,
but also ironic, take on The Great Dictator, pre-Holocaust.3 And yet, Mann's brief
essay puts in place some of the central terms with which the post-war history 234

11 Psychoanalysis and psychiatry would occasionally figure prominently in
Jacques Tourneur's films, in particular Cat People and Experiment Perilous. In ¡
97¡, he told an interviewer that one of his cherished projects was a film on the life
of the pioneering neurologist Jean-Marie Charcot. Clarence Brown, who
regarded Maurice Tourneur as his “god,” acknowledged: “He had only one failing
in his pictures—he was cold. He had no heart.” Aware of this deficiency himself,
Tourneur ...

John Belton, for example, accepts that 'the relationship between American film
and American social and historical reality is highly mediated and extremely
complex'. He elaborates thus: Films, quite clearly, cannot be viewed as simple
mirrors of cultural reality. As fictional works, they do, however, have a 'use-value'.
They can be analyzed – even psychoanalyzed – to reveal something about the
cultural conditions that produced them and attracted audiences to them... In other
words, the ...

Why do films affect us so strongly? What is the relevance of psychoanalytic
concepts such as voyeurism, fetishism, regression to the filmic experience? What
is the nature of the cinematic apparatus? In what ways is film experience
comparable to dream? Theorists such as Metz and Raymond Bellour
psychoanalyzed their own critical and theoretical practice. Thus Metz, in "The
Imaginary Signifier," spoke of the diverse ways in which theorists can "love films,"
and scrutinized his own ...

Under this dispensation, film structures - from the perspectival image, narration,
and point-of-view editing to the very conditions of film projection - are
psychoanalyzed to show how each triggers a series of psychological processes
that culminate in the positioning ... Where earlier theorists spoke of the essence
of cinema, contemporary film theorists think of film in terms of a central function or
role, viz., the propagation of ideology through subject positioning. And where
