Oedipus tortures me, but…

…I can’t wait for next semester Honours subject on Film and Psychoanalysis if stuff like this will be on the course.

Billy Wilder cracked that the times were almost right for “a movie about a young man who has a passionate love affair with his mother. At the end he learns that she is not his mother and he commits suicide.”

The Dame In The Kimono, Leonard J Leff & Jerold L Simmons
