Freud famously described them as being “the royal road to the unconscious” this then creates an interesting three way relationship between film, dreams and psychoanalysis with the latter having been among the most dominant forces in film theory and criticism for the past few decades. In psychoanalytic theory, the three levels of consciousness as outlined by sigmund freud are the conscious, preconscious and unconscious minds freud likened this theory to an iceberg with a visible tip, the conscious mind an obscured but visible middle, the preconscious and a bulk hidden beneath the water, the unconscious. Theory of human nature: mental determinism, the unconscious, drives, and child development – the first major idea in freud’s theory of human nature is the application of determinism to psychology this would seem to imply that humans do not possess free will, but freud was ambivalent about that philosophical question. Freud formulated his second psychological theory— which hypothesises that the unconscious has or is a primary process consisting of symbolic and condensed thoughts, and a secondary process of logical, conscious thoughts. Freud’s contribution in the field of psychology has been fundamental in art different artistic movements have been influenced by psychic automatism, the unconscious, sexual impulses, and the interpretation of dreams.
The two founding fathers of psychotherapy revolutionized the field, making psychology degrees popular sigmund freud and carl jung had very different approaches to psychology, but both are considered to be the founders of the modern psychoanalytic movement. Freud’s theory of the unconscious was substantially transformed by some of his followers, among them carl jung and jacques lacan jung’s collective unconscious carl jung developed the concept further. Freud stated explicitly that the concept of the unconscious was based on the theory of repression he postulated a cycle in which ideas are repressed, but remain in the mind, removed from consciousness yet operative, then reappear in consciousness under certain circumstances.

The concept of the unconscious was central to freud’s view of the mind he believed that the majority of what we experience day-to-day (the emotions, beliefs and impulses) takes place in the unconscious and is not viewable to us in the conscious mind.
In addition, freud's development of unconscious sources of behavior and his emphasis on motivational structures of the human mind have had a lasting impact on psychological theory and research however, most of freud's specific theories--like his stages of psychosexual development--and especially his methodology, have fallen out of favor in. Freud, in particular, was unhappy with jung’s disagreement with some of the key concepts and ideas of freudian theory for example, jung disagreed with freud’s focus on sexuality as a key motivating behavioural force, as well as believing freud’s concept of the unconscious as too limited and overly negative. The unconscious (or subconscious): freud said that much of what we think is hidden from our waking minds, in our unconscious or subconscious forbidden wishes and unacceptable thoughts can escape.

Hitchcock is the first great film director who explained freud’s psychoanalysis theories, such as dream analysis, psychological trauma, libido, oedipus complex in his movies therefore, to some extent, he promoted the widely spread of freud’s theories. During much of hitchcock’s career, freud’s ideas were dominant, and although hitchcock was skeptical of psychoanalysis (as he was of other explanations for human behaviour), freudian concepts and motifs recur in many of his films.
Hitchcock is his career as bi-national director launched a number of visual representations of psychological concept of repression, dismemberment, memory, haunting, and doubling to name a few the present paper constitutes the reading of select films by hitchcock- rebecca (1940) and vertigo (1958.
