Michael Conte

Abstract

Following from Robin Wood, Conte locates a dialectic of sublimity and destructiveness within the film's fraught hybridization of American culture. Carrie's fondness for metaphors of deviance and sexual becoming thus invokes its eponymous character's abjection as not just a gendered, but an explicitly nationalized negotiation of the politics of normalcy.
