Freud had much to say about guilt, conscious and unconscious. Using Freud’s “Criminals from a Sense of Guilt” and “The Exceptions” with illustrations from Woody Allen’s movies, Match Point and Crimes and Misdemeanors, we will see how an unconscious sense of guilt may motivate criminal acts, whereas a conscious sense of guilt may justify them. Two distinctly different responses to guilt will be considered: the need for punishment and the effort to atone.
