Abstract
This analysis of Caché/Hidden(Michael Haneke, 2005) examines how the film's depiction of a world of material privilege corroded by psychic unease opens up broader questions of the political deployment of fear and paranoid fantasy, and the dishonesities and displacements of postcolonialism.
