On The Couch - Vampires Who Need a Little Freud: Lie Down, Vlad Dracula

By Avram Finkelstein, Hollywood Staff

Gary Oldman's Vlad Dracula in Francis Ford Coppola's loving 1992 remake of a vampire classic, Bram Stoker's Dracula, is difficult to pin down. He is a gentleman, and a villain, a romantic and a cynic, both devoted and destructive. Vlad has Borderline Personality Disorder

Borderlines are compelling, effusive, seductive and impassioned. They are also intense, rageful, delusional and impulsive. And they have an out-of-whack sensitivity to abandonment. They're kind of clingy.

The good news? Borderlines are idealistic, easily elated and intensely loving. The down side is they are extremely emotional, self-destructive, and easily humiliated - as in, 'Duck, Vlad is having a mood swing!'

When things are on the uptick they make mighty fine lovers, but fire rains down when their switch gets flipped. It's risky business, shacking up with a borderline. Unless you're addicted to danger and excitement.

You know, given to Manias.
