Classics on the Couch: Movie Discussion Series
Friday, April 28 | 7:00 to 8:30 PM
The films of director Alfred Hitchcock have long fascinated psychoanalysts as well as the general public-- and none more than his 1958 masterpiece Vertigo. Part film noir, part detective thriller, and above all a psychological study of obsession, Vertigo contains not only Hitchcock’s most revolutionary cinematography but also a wonderfully complex hero who viewers will want to put on the couch.
Continuing Education Objectives:
Participants will be able to:
- Analyze Hitchcock’s cinematic imagery as the symbolic language of his protagonist’s psychic state.
- Discuss how Vertigo depicts the nature of obsession.
- Discuss the detective-hero who confronts (and represses) his fears of love and death.
CE Target audience: Psychologists (all levels), Social Workers, Counselors
