Richard Kelly on "Southland Tales" Complete and Unedited.
Here are some of the various FAQ pages about Southland Tales. It is important to state that just because Southland Tales is doing different things with narrative, it doesn’t mean it is not a narrative film and that it doesn’t have a narrative structure. Shaviro’s analysis could be described as narrative+, with the concept of the post-cinematic pointing to the ways the film makes meaning that exceed some of our previous ways of thinking film (which is why it is so smart). I’m giving you guys this stuff just FYI. I am not teaching these articles, but Shaviro’s work (so be aware of that).
