It is full of foreshadowing, “Hotels like this aren’t interested when you come in but when your time is up…,” and sets the stage for the odd relationships and nature of the movie. In a time where the standard was the nuclear family, a risqué romance between two unmarried adults within just the opening pieces of the movie makes the audience somewhat appalled and intrigued. The sexual connotations and deviancy continues into the film as addressed in the parlor scene, just before Marion gets into the shower. Although this section of the film tends to get left behind by the shower scene, it really exemplifies the inner struggle that Norman faces with his sexual desires and his sexist attitudes toward women which were undoubtabley manifested in Norman by his mother. Norman even calls a woman a “doll” at one point.

In unhealthy and abusive relationships, the abuser will do everything to isolate the victim and to limit her social contacts. We can see this in Christian’s almost any gesture as the plot progresses: from the moment when he calls Anastasia while she is at a bar with her friends and he imposes her immediately to go home, to the contract he wants Anastasia to sign in which he stipulates the way in which their sexual relationship will unfold. Christian controls not only what type of birth control she should use, but also how she should feed herself. This type of attitude that Christian exerts over Anastasia can induce the idea that within a relationship a person is entitled to have control and can command where you should go and what to do with your time and life.

Goldstein, as the reader learners, is the poster child of all things party members are too avoid, the snake within in the party that is supposed to evoke anger, and disgust. This concept is exemplified as Winston describes the process of Two Minutes of Hate, in which Goldstein’s face is shown, causing party members to become near barbaric and experience “ a painful mixture of emotions” (Orwell, X).
