The Ring and the Diabolical Imaginary
A thoughtful-looking take on The Ring (includes Lacanian and Buddhist readings and a discussion of the differences between the English- and Japanese-language versions) is available at Cinetext. I didn’t read through the whole thing, but somebody else may want to; it looks coherent enough. (Matthew Sharpe, Cinetext, 12 Sep 2003). One thing I want to know is if anybody else sees a connection in this film with Roger Shattuck’s Forbidden Knowledge?
