Altman and After : Multiple Narratives in Film, Hardback Book

Altman and After : Multiple Narratives in Film Hardback


In Altman & After: Multiple Narratives in Film, Peter Parshall carefully examines films that feature various plotlines.

In each chapter, Parshall looks at a different example of the multi-plot form, such as network narrative and the multiple-draft narrative, demonstrating that the structure of each is central to their artistry, and that these devices open up a variety of creative vistas.

Films studied in this book include Nashville, Pulp Fiction, Amores Perros, Code Unknown, The Edge of Heaven, Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Run Lola Run, and Kieslowski's Three Colors trilogy: Red, White, and Blue.
