Formation


The contrast between the snapshots of the Saint in a starched clerical collar with his face expressing the first stage of arousal and the closeup of his penis with the Countess's looming face at the centre of this frame marks the threat of decapitation/castration by the ‘blades of teeth and lips’ and the pinnacle of the Saint's desire: the entirety of which is witnessed by the o/Other. In this frame the Saint publicly 'loses face' and will remain 'dismembered' until he is corporeally and spiritually reconstituted in the penultimate and ultimate slides.

Partial drives: Oral (Lips)—>Breast (demand) “to suck”
Scopic (Eyes)—>Gaze (desire) “to see”
Anal (Anus)—>Faeces (demand) “to shit”
