Tilda Swinton: Flat Affect
What is affect?
Margaret Hall
"You don't have three kids to feed, or worry about the future of a 17-year-old boy who nearly got himself killed driving back from some kind of a nightclub with his 30-year-old friend sitting drunk in the seat beside him."
Jackie Stacey
"That which the subject cannot fully grasp (precisely that which is beyond literalisation) but which reminds us we are social and subject to the impressions of others; the term affect refers to that intangible layer of embodied sensitivity or vitality which prepares the ground for the more concrete phenomena of emotions or feelings but is not reducible to them."
the deep end (2001)
My essay
“In comparing and contrasting the affective presence/absence of the mother in two films from the course, what might we conclude about Swinton as a maternal figure in cinema?”
