BoB Curated Playlists

Adventures in Cinematic Storytelling
Dr Dominic Topp, University of Southampton

The Woman in Question (Talking Pictures TV, 2019)


Flashbacks within flashbacks, network narratives, open endings, parallel worlds: this playlist offers a selection of films from around the world that innovate with cinematic storytelling and draw attention to the creative possibilities of narrative form (the organisation of story events in relation to one another) and narration (the process by which story information is presented to – and withheld from – the viewer).
