Peace in the Pieces Disassembled: Deconstructing Hannibal, part IV

IV. The Sessions i. A Dull Ache “Being alone comes with a dull ache, doesn’t it?” , asks Franklyn in one of his sessions with Dr. Lecter. Hannibal replies with a simple “It can”. He will later comment further on the subject, when he tries to persuade Will that he is a killer. “At a time […]

Peace in the Pieces Disassembled: Deconstructing Hannibal, part III

III. Folie à deux In the first part of this deconstruction (I. When Hannibal Fed Will’s dogs) I promised to write a few things on Hannibal’s true motives. For this part of the analysis it is crucial that we all concur that Hannibal is a very intelligent, multilayered, complex character.  Hannibal’s motives must never be too […]

II. What Would Freud Say? For anyone who’s ever read Sigmund Freud, it is obvious that the two protagonists are manifestations of the two opposing elements in his structural model of the human psyche/mind: id and superego. But, let’s start with the basics, for all those who haven’t read Freud;  presuming that you have read […]

I decided that I like the idea of grouping my posts, like I did with the  Artsy- Fartsy ones. Also, I can never resist the opportunity to use a Community reference. So, in this case it’s a win-win. Without further ado, I present to you my brand new MY EMOTIONS!  category, with links to things […]

@CancelledAgain or: how I learned to live with PTTVSCD.

For those of us who love television there is nothing worse than the realisation that our favourite tv series has  just been cancelled. There should be a word for that depression you feel when your beloved tv series gets axed; I would even propose that PTTVSCD (Post Traumatic TV Series Cancellation Disorder) is considered a […]

Ready Player One, bitches.

Erm… This is weird. You see,  never in my life, not even once, have I wanted to write a book review. I don’t know what came over me. I guess I’m weary of this constant effort to persuade others to read Ready Player One. So I figured I’d write a post  and send a link […]

The time we left our guts on a seat, and other funny stories.

I still remember the date; which is a very odd thing; I am well-known for forgetting dates, birthdays, and namedays, you see; I even forget my own birthday sometimes. It was the 14th of July, 2009. There was a dance festival at Technopolis – it’s hard to believe it now, but there was a time […]
