As a society, we are fascinated by fictional psychopaths. Humankind has an ‘ongoing… fascination with tales of gruesome murders and evil villain. Popular culture abounds with depictions of the mad and the bad; and aberrant psychology has proved a fertile source of such material to the novelist and the reader alike. Perhaps no single disorder holds as much morbid cultural appeal as psychopathy.
There is no question… that readers feel empathy with and sympathy for fictional characters and other aspects of fictional worlds’, yet it is difficult to see how one can empathise and identify with a character who is himself incapable of empathy. If empathy and identification are both the goal and the reward of reading literature, then we are left with a striking ambivalence which needs to be explored.

Looking at the dialogue in this scene, it’s like Norman’s Father is accusing him of femininity and rejecting masculinity. There are a lot of people who talk about the ending with the Jock turning out to be a huge gay when the stereotypical teen girl tried to ask him out but I think there are more sprinkles of questioning sexuality throughout the movie. I think I might watch this movie again to analyze it a bit more. It’s the little things that count.
