William D. Jeffrey

The recent film, Back to the Future, combines elements of magical wish-fulfillment and reversals in the traditional father-son roles, with oedipal themes and issues specific to the second separation-individuation phase of adolescent development. Bick examines the issues of adolescent resurgence of oedipal conflict and family romance fantasy, time and awareness of oneself in time as manifestations of superego conflict, and creation mythology heightened by these developmental struggles. She considers the film as an amalgam of developmental and age-appropriate fantasies, and compares the structure of the film with the theory of dream work.
