Sample text

Chapter 2 The Body Explodes Cartesian Difficulties As discussed in the previous chapter, Cronenberg utilizes the body onscreen as a means of revealing previously effaced disciplinary structures that govern not just the body but, through what Sontag identifies as ‘disease metaphors’, the subject constituted by the body. The Cartesian mind/body dialectic is obviously called into question and Cronenberg’s bringing forward of the body, usually ignored in favour of the mind-assubject, works to reveal the elided tension inherent in this dialectic.

Beyond the mask of social order, that can bring solace to their torment’ (Feher-Gurewich, 2003, 192). Therefore, a perverse positioning – or forcing an audience to look as the protagonist looks, instead of simply looking at the protagonist looking – does occur in Cronenberg’s films and is as politically motivated as all of his other heretical techniques. Indeed, positioning the spectator as perverse is a heretical device insofar as it reveals, brutally, the structure of desire and endlessly deferred satisfaction that is the elided centre of the standard (neurotic) cinematic experience.
