How many examples can we come up with of ‘objects of desire’? That means items that are obsessively pursued by one or more protagonists of a film/novel/TV show/what-have-you.
the Holy Grail (pursued in modern times in, among other films, “Excalibur” and “Monty Python’s Holy Grail”)
the One Ring (“the Lord of the Rings”)
Marcellus Wallace’s briefcase and its’ mysterious contents (“Pulp Fiction”)
’64 Chevy Malibu with radioactive alien cadavers in the trunk (“Repo Man”)
the Ruby Slippers (“the Wizard of Oz”)
What are some others?
