dc.description.abstractPhilip Ridley's Mercury Fur portrays a dystopian world where violence has permeated and chaos prevails. This paper aims to argue that regulatory Law is subtly depicted as a necessary condition in this dystopic setting, where Law appears in the form of violence and the burst of the Real in Lacan's terms, and the military attack in the end terminates the existing system. This chaotic atmosphere which calls for the governmental intervention in the end is established through the burst of the Real, abjection, and the shift in subject positions. The structure of this dystopian world ,viii be analyzed through the theories of Jacques Lacan and Julia Kristeva.en_US
