Wow, seriously.

Brilliant. Just brilliant.

Only saw that one minute too.

We are those loner weirdos as well. We started this forum. How apt.
Narrative is the poison of cinema...There's nothing more beautiful than elusiveness in cinema.

The 5-act structure in cinema, explained using Fincher's Dragon Tattoo movie (which I really like).

I started reading about the idea of a 5-act structure around the time Vishal Bharadwaj's Haider released, since I found out that classic greek tragedies are in written 5 acts.
I then found out some director's break convention by doing it in cinema, Fincher being #1 of them.

This below video esaay was uploaded a few days ago, and I found it super-fascinating coz it brought together what I was looking into and explained it visually.
