Summary
Drawing on philosophy in film and emotional engagement theory, this article compares three different sensory landscapes of dictatorship in film: Fritz Lang’s The Testament of Dr. Mabuse (1933), Guillermo del Toro’s The Devil’s Backbone (2001), and Luis Llosa’s The Feast of the Goat (2005). Although the three films deploy diverse aesthetic modes—Expressionism-Noir (Lang), Psychological-Realism (Llosa), and Gothic (del Toro)—they mutually reveal the existence of an ethics of resistance and insurgency during historical periods of oppressive rule.
