The Cine-Analyst: Episode 15 – Baby Doll

On this episode of the Cine-Analyst, we talk about Mary Louise Dahl, an actress who also happens to be an adult trapped in a child’s body. Being trapped in a body so much younger than the self, Mary gets stuck in a constant state of regression and frustration, not because of her psyche but because of how others treat her. It’s almost like she was born to be a villain…almost.

Here’s what we talk about this episode:

  • The issue of difference and the self.
  • Never aging is probably the worst thing ever.
  • What would you do to keep your delusion alive?
  • Final Fantasy is when your two psychic fantasies have a show-down.
  • Navigating adulthood is even harder when no one takes you seriously.
  • What a girl (really) wants.

Tune in every Friday as I breakdown fictional characters and talk about what’s going on inside that brain of theirs. Are your favorite heroes crazy or just misunderstood? Find out on this season of The Cine-Analyst!
