Jungian Film Studies is a fast-growing academic field. However, Jungian and post-Jungian concepts are still new to most academics and film critics (and are often deliberately neglected by them) who have been using Freud and Lacan as critical tools for decades. Lacanian language in particular has become de riguer – a framework which everyone should know well (and employ systematically) despite its obvious lack of precision. Lacanian film analysis solidified into a sort of establishment while other psychoanalytic frameworks have been left relatively unexplored. Using Jung to analyse film narratives is an equivalent to thinking outside the box; to challenge the established norm. This is exactly what we will try to do in this book – as well as to show how usable and versatile Jungian theories are when used as tools for critical analysis of cinema and television.
