La schizophrénie à l’écran : processus de subjectivation et de verbalisation dans Clean, Shaven (Kerrigan, 1994) et Spider (Cronenberg, 2001)

Abstract : This article seeks to analyze the tension between the filmic representation of mental illness and its potential verbalization into words in Clean, Shaven (Lodge Kerrigan, 1995) and Spider (David Cronenberg, 2001), two recent North American films that tackle schizophrenia in a radical manner, leaving aside the many clichés long associated with that specific form of mental illness on screen. Both films adopt challenging narrative strategies that compel spectators to accompany their respective protagonists through their terrifying journeys. The main question underlying this discussion is that of the possible “subjectivation” of mental illness in the fiction film, notably through the use of speech and verbal processes. That is the reason why, following a detailed discussion of how the two films approach psychopathology, the article concludes with a comparative analysis of two key sequences in which the protagonists struggle to come with verbal strategies in order to confront an ever-oppressive Real.
