Lalangue affects us first by everything it contains as effects that are affects. If we can say that the unconscious is structured as a language, it is in that the effects of lalangue, already there as knowledge, go well beyond everything the being who speaks is capable of stating' (SXX, 127). 'Everything arises from the structure of the signifier' (5A7, 188). Given the preceding remarks, let us now come to the actual terms of Lacan's account of the causation of the subject in two fundamental operations which stand in a circular though not reciprocal relation (to quote Miller quoting Lacan: cf SXI, 188 and £,840).

In this sense, the moment of the image Oudart stresses is not 'before' but 'after' the symbolic, is much more the dispersion of the subject-ego than the anticipation of its mastery (look again at the passage devoted to The General). Or rather, since the point is not to shift to a simply contrary position, what is in question is a complex and multiple play of symbolic and imaginary, the production of the spectator as subject in the film in that play: it is not the spectator's imaginary, as Oudart at times appears to state, which sutures the discourse; 33 CULTURE rather, the suturing function includes the spectator as part of an imaginary production.

28 Moreover, extended series of telescoped point-of-view sequences can be con­ structed, the third shot in one sequence doubling as the initial shot of a second and so on. The emphases made by Rothman are important but their effect is not to render the concept of suture - of the suturing operation of cinematic dis­ course - no longer pertinent; rather, they suggest a necessary displacement, the need to move away from the simple notion of the immediate image, the symbolic apprehension, the imaginary resolution, the constant and single figure of the absent one.
