DAVID BORDWELL NARRATION IN THE FICTION FILM PDF

He argues in the introduction that, at the time of publishing , few scholars have examined the narrative theory of film. Bordwell is interested in understanding the relationship between narrative and film. This goal seems straightforward at first, but it is complicated by the questions of what narrative is, exactly, and how the content of film might be translated into narrative segments. A natural application of this is to examine how games might convey narrative segments, much like the way that films do. I think another more interesting use is to use the narrative approaches to film to examine how fiction is adapted into film, and how narrative devices might be translated into games. The approach of looking at a narrative as a model of a world I think combines the three of these.

These suppressed gaps leap into prominence against the background of the classical narrative mode, which provides explicit signals for the transitions between objectivity and subjectivity. In other cases, the filmic norm may be formulated before very many viewers have appropriate schemata ready to hand. If the chapters that follow had no other consequence, I would be happy if they could spur viewers, critics, and teachers to consider how their activities operate within tacit, conventional frameworks that are social and historical.

Each constitutes a distinct and coherent set of conventions of syuzhet construction and film style, and these conventions are actually used in creating and understanding fictional films. This is not to say that the conventions are immutable—indeed, one of my subsidiary concerns will be to show that most modes have changed across time. But we must qualify this characterization in two respects.

First, generic factors often create variations upon these precepts. A detective film will be quite restricted in its range of knowledge and highly suppressive in concealing causal information.

A musical will contain codified moments of self-consciousness e. Second, the temporal progression of the syuzhet makes narrational properties fluctuate across the film, and these fluctuations too are codified. Typically, the opening and closing of the film are the most self-conscious, omniscient, and communicative passages.

The credit sequence and the first few shots usually bear traces of an overt narration. Once the action has started, however, the narration becomes more covert, letting the characters and their interaction take over the transmission of information. In classical narration, style typically encourages the spectator to construct a coherent, consistent time and space for the fabula action. Classical style consists of a strictly limited number of particular technical devices organized into a stable paradigm and ranked probabilistically according to syuzhet demands.

Similarly, the syuzhet may use psychology to justify the manipulation of time. Parallel audiences emerged in European intellectual centers. Great blog! Appreciate it.
