    Abstract:
    This essay gives a historical/theoretical account of the interaction between psychoanalytic theory and American film culture. Through an analysis of the popularization and sensationalization of psychoanalytic theory and practice in the 1950s in America, the article argues that psychoanalytic theory in a neoliberal age is no longer seen as modern or 'new' and has been dismissed by both cultural studies and dominant modes of thinking in behavioral psychology.
