Beyond Internalism and Externalism: Husserl and Sartre's Image Consciousness in Hitchcock and Buñuel

Film-Philosophy 14 (1):174-201 (2010)

Abstract

Husserl and Sartre’s analyses of mental imagery and some of the latest cognitive research on vision provide a framework for understanding a number of films by Hitchcock (Psycho and Rear Window) and Buñuel (Un Chien Andalou), films which similarly probe the subtleties and uses of mental imagery. One of the many ways to enjoy these films is to see them as explorations of visual phenomenology; they allow us to enact, as well as reflect upon, mental images as part of the film experience.<br><br><br><br><br><br>.
