The Cut and the Paranoia of the Killing Act. Between Altman and Buñuel
Keywords:cut, act, paranoia, killing, Altman, Buñuel
This paper aims to explore the psychoanalytic roots and affinities in Robert Altman and Luis Buñuel with respect to the mechanisms of the constitution of the subject. More specifically, I approach the function of the cut as both a mark of the subject and within a so called paranoid act. Thus, in a Lacanian interpretation, the cut involves topology, the relation with the object, separation and alienation and, ultimately, the pure loss.
