Title: "Christ kid, you're a weirdo": a Kristevan reading of Bad Boy Bubby
Author: Iocco, Melissa
Issue Date: 1998
School/Discipline: School of Social Sciences
Abstract: This thesis explores issues of identity and sexuality in the film Bad Boy Hubby, utilising Julia Kristeva's theories on abjection, love and melancholia. Through the examination of the film's representation of the 'self,' sexual difference and the Maternal body, this thesis argues that Bad Boy Hubby is unable to offer cinematic or psychical Oedipal resolution. This inability derives from what emerges in the film as an awareness and exploration of the crisis and disintegration of masculine subjectivity.
