"You didn't see anything," a woman in a movie says to her dubious lover. "No one sees anything. Ever. They watch, but they don't understand." What is desire in the cinema? How do we know it when we see it or when we feel it? How do the images, sounds, and narratives of the cinema engage us erotically? We will examine classic theories of gender and sexuality in visual studies through a survey of recent cinema, including work by such directors as Pedro Almodóvar, Catherine Breillat, David Lynch, Steve McQueen, Michael Haneke, Gaspar Noé, and Wong Kar-wai.
