The Ring Structure of Film Interpretation

The Ring Structure of Film Interpretation

“The ring form thus seems to presume repetition and re-interpretation to be understood; it almost takes on the aspect of ritual. It also seems to presume a community that will share in accumulated understanding. Is this perhaps what makes the ring form so alien to contemporary life? Right now, disorder seems much more realistic.”

Metaphilm writers and readers may especially benefit from reading this New York Times (subscription required, apologies) meditation, with implications for the structure of most movies and, in our opinion, in creating a worthwhile interpretation of the same.
