Modular Narratives in Contemporary Cinema

Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan, 2008 M08 15 - 232 pages
Since the early 1990s there has been a trend towards narrative complexity within popular cinema, as evidenced by the successes of such films as Pulp Fiction, Memento and Run Lola RunModular Narratives in Contemporary Cinema looks at the way a number of these films play with time and narrative. Allan Cameron shows how this formal play reflects a persistent fascination with questions of chance and destiny, memory and history, and the representation of simultaneous events.
