Abstract Through an analysis of Martin Scorsese's The Age of Innocence, this article proposes a psychoanalytically based theory of male melancholia. Grounded in the cultural ambiguities of loss and masculinity, melancholia is revealed as an essential tool for reading Scorsese's film and for understanding representations of male desire in the cinema.
