In this talk I would like to take a look at some of the remarkable parallels between David Lynch’s masterpiece and Lacanian psychoanalysis.

PROJECTIONS empowers film spectators to express subjective associations they consider to be meaningful.

With contributions from scholars, psychoanalysts, cinephiles and filmmakers, this collection of essays explores potential affinities and disjunctions between Lynch and Freud. The brilliant contributors include directors, cinephiles, philosophers, art and cultural historians, as well as psychoanalysts.Cox Cameron finds in Lynch’s 2001 masterpiece Mulholland Drive a text replete with the mechanisms of the dream-work identified in Freud’s Interpretation of Dreams. These films by David Lynch have captivated and mystified audiences around the world; Freudian psychoanalysis offers a chance to decipher the American director's luxurious cinematic dreamscapes. I shall consider from a psychoanalytic perspective how Blue Velvet, dominated as it is by perverse relationships, presents us with ‘a strange world’ (a sentence repeatedly uttered by two of the film’s protagonists). Some of the concepts went totally over my head having only studied a Psychology A Level but I feel like I got a lot out of reading this.

I totally get it,” my then-partner uttered, victoriously, as soon as the lights came back on in Amsterdam’s Kriterion movie theater, where we had just watched David Lynch’s 2001 thriller “Mulholland Drive.

this collection raises several important questions, pertinent both to psychoanalysis and an appreciation of Lynch. This conference invites psychoanalysts, scholars and cinephiles to reflect on these Lynchian enigmas.

As the cinema foyer filled with the aromas of damn fine coffee, the animated discussions whirled before spilling out on to the street, so that passers-by catching a few fragments of conversation about the mysteries of Lumberton, the sinister underbelly of Twin Peaks, or the depravity of Bobby Peru could be forgiven for surmising that it was a convention of detectives (or perverts). Each paper is so rich in their handling of the Freud/Lynch dichotomy that we’re delighted Phoenix published a legacy of this project.He has organised a number of events and conferences on psychoanalytic themes, and has written and lectured on dreams, sexuality, anthropology, surrealism, and masculinity.

And sprawl has a bad reputation: it’s undisciplined and ungainly, it occupies time and space with ugly, disorganized forms.

Dr Olga Cox Cameron analyses the movie in relation to Freud’s dream logic as well as Lacan’s theories.David Lynch is known for creating luxurious cinematic dreamscapes – infuriatingly beautiful mind puzzles in his signature surrealistic style. This motif functions as a separation between reality and fantasy spaces, or spaces to explore the unconscious, which begs the question: what lies ‘behind the curtain’? Cox Cameron’s presentation will be prefaced with some introductory comments by the book’s editors, Jamie Ruers and Stefan Marianski. Mulholland Drive proves surprisingly amenable to the dream logic explored by Freud in The Interpretation of Dreams, so let’s see where it takes us.
