the early blossoming of decay might round the flavor, sweeten that meat to the bone. Snow clouds had replaced the horizon, capped the valley darkly, and. "The lineage from Faulkner to Woodrell runs as deep and true as an Ozark stream in this book his most profound and haunting yet." — Los Angeles Times Book. Winter's Bone, released in , was nominated for four Oscars. It received. 52 other award nominations and 26 wins. It is a film with the potential to affect every .
We speak to try to find a place of trust and safety, to avoid the evil eye of the Other, and the stark realization that there is no Other of the Other, no transcendental meaning beyond our own perceptions and words. That perspective would make the film into some kind of melodrama or cynical commentary on poor people. Les quatre concepts fondamentaux de la psychanalyse. Ree tells Victoria that she is looking for her father. Ree, like Antigone, will not give up on her desire.
Recurrent themes of decay, despair, and uncertain or changeable morality define much of the work within the Southern Gothic tradition, as does careful attention to the world of the physical, and the nature that characterizes the American South.

The one who chooses the feminine side for identity — male or female — lives just beyond the realm of the necessary in a given symbolic realm which allows them a paradoxical freedom from the rigorous rules that constitute the masculine.
She even tells the women who beat her that they can kill her if they want, but she will not relinquish her search for her father. She speaks truth to the powerful. Basically she is saying to the men that, where her ethical being is at stake, they do not have the phallus.
She does. She is not saying she is the phallus, as are the Law or the Big Man, but that she has the phallic power to not be subdued.
And this resides in her refusal to stop questioning her fate. But Miller shows that Lacan also made a disjunction between repetition of a signifier and the drive in Seminar XI. What drives Ree?
She is clearly driven by something beyond the usual wish to remain engaged in the games of appearance and sham that keep the truths of the real at bay. She is willing to die if necessary in order to find out what happened to her father and in an effort to keep her family intact; she wants to know.
Yet she is driven by multiple things, not only the desire to know what has actually happened to her father, and the nurturing tendencies she feels towards her family.
Indeed, Teardrop lets us know that the one who turned her father in for making crystal meth was the Sheriff himself who was also part of the kinship structure of the mountain people. Are the repeated efforts on her part aimed at knowledge of the intolerable truth of the real? Freud, as Lacan reads him, argued that desire is indestructible. Libido is a feature of the symbolic, as well as the real 9 and repetition opens up the unconscious.
Yet repetition does not open up the unconscious in some final revelation of truth. Rather, repetition is conjoined to the lost object — that which keeps lack and loss present in life — and as such just misses connecting with the unbearable real. The money is the difference between what her house was worth and what she owed them and they tell her that some man has paid the difference: The police say they have taken their cut and the rest is hers. This act, the giving of the money that will reward, rather than punish her perseverance, can only have been carried out by the mysterious Big Man, the one who remains the silent power behind the film, the one whose unlawful laws the mountain women follow.
Theoretically, he is like the Ur-father I mentioned earlier, the one who stands outside the limits of social Law and imposes the limits of his group himself. He is the master signifier in the film, the Ur-father in Freudian terms, the exception to the rule in Lacanian terms. And it is founded on the surplus jouissance that flows under the signifier as meaning. The death drive is involved insofar as an actual death is involved: I would go further and argue that his silence and immanent power in the community bespeak not only a respect on his part for Ree, but a very repressed sexual desire for her.
And respect is a part of what makes us love and desire another. Respect means not simply putting labels on one another and sticking with comfortable imaginary interpretations, but, rather, looking at the singularity of each subject in terms of his or her suffering in life.
In this sense, I would say that sexuality — that is, respect that can cause the libido to feel desire for another — is not absent from the film, 13 but is the jouissance underlying the movement of the whole story, ultimately materialized in the form of hard cash.
In psychoanalytic terms, one can see a transference of the Big Man onto Ree, not just because she is a pretty young girl, but because he is moved by her courage.
