sir, how do u relate this movie to wat we are studyin in 2nd sem B.A English Literature...??

hi anonymous !
hope you don mind im giving my opinion.
you see in the movie that 'the psycho guy' as i call him looks at the moon and compares it to an eyeball , and as soon as he sees a black cloud passes by the cloud he compares it to a knife cutting the eyeball ( thats the reason for the slittting of the lady's eye )

similarly in 'Dover Beach' Matthew Arnold compares the waves to religion.

as far as i know this is the only relation between the 2.

I agree with Aishwarya said + to introduce the idea of free association of Freud. More in the class.
