Poster for The Postman Always Rings Twice
For Brian Price (Visual Studies, University of Toronto), regret can be understood as a particular way of saying yes. That is to say, if we feel regret about something that has occurred—where we might otherwise feel rage, or else be caught up in a melancholic state—then we have a chance of saying yes to what we have already said no to at least once before.

Price’s talk, “Regret and Remake,” will take up questions of the remake and adaptation precisely as a way of understanding the way that, as a cultural form, the cinematic remake has much to tell us about the productivity of regret in realms that extend well beyond the creation of works of art. At the heart of his talk will be a consideration of Tay Garnett’s 1946 adaptation of James M. Cain’s The Postman Always Rings Twice—a landmark text of regret.
