1. The Invention of Morel and Vertigo

    The Invention of Morel has been mentioned as the influence for Lost (1, 2) and Last Year at Marienbad, but it also may be an inspiration for Hitchchock’s Vertigo

    In 2008 the Stanford Humanities Center put out a symposium on the 50th Anniversary of Vertigo, which featured Professor Jean-Pierre Dupuy's lecture on the themes of The Invention of Morel and Hitchcock’s narrative - - the fascination of illusory or “duplicated” women (Carlotta from Vertigo, Faustine from Morel), and the idea of the loop or the spiral in both works. 

    The lecture can be found here [iTunes link], it starts at 5:08.
