Abstract

This Independent Study examines the ways in which the uncanny female double is implemented in modern film. Specifically analyzing Robert Altman’s 3 Women (1976), David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive (2001), and Ingmar Bergman’s Persona (1966), this project evaluates themes of doubling, repressed identities, and fragmented narrative structures that emerge in these “uncanny” films, which are undeniably troubling and confusing.
