Movie Metaphor Essays
This is a hobby of mine - deconstructing movies through their metaphors. These essays are meant to be read after you see the movie - they are not movie reviews. Anyway, I hope you enjoy them...
I'll be adding films from time to time but for right now here's what I've got:
|Off the Map (2003)|
|Y Tu Mamá También (2002)|
|Mulholland Dr. (2001)|
|Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000)|
|American Beauty (1999)|
|The Red Violin (1998)|
|Saturday Night Fever (1977)|
|Short takes: Brief, undeveloped, treatments of 12 Monkeys, 2001, Amelie, Big Night, The Fisher King, Jeff, Who Lives at Home, Ruby Sparks, Time Bandits, Brazil, Baron Munchausen, and The Way We Were.|
For anything by one of my favorite directors, Michelangelo Antonioni (Zabrskie Point, Blow-up, The Passenger, etc.), see the magnificent book Antonioni, the Poet of Images by William Arrowsmith. Absolutely wonderful.
