Structural Theories & Storytelling in Hook

Figure 1

Steven Spielberg's Hook (1991) is a reimagined adaptation of J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan (1911). It follows Peter as a grown up man who is struggling to be a good father and has forgotten Neverland. His old nemesis, Captain Hook reappears on the scene, kidnaps Pan's children and Pan is forced by Tinkerbell to face up to the reality that they have been taken by Hook to Neverland. When the film first appeared on the big screen it had mixed reviews, one of them being that "Lacking all the hallmarks that made Spielberg the perfect choice in the first place, this bloated spin on J.M. Barrie - a grown up Peter Pan (WIlliams) tries to reclaim his inner child - remains the lowest point in the director's canon." (Thomas, 1991) he believes that the films structure and story is not up to the standards that most audiences expect from Spielberg, for his films are well plotted and flow smoothly yet this one takes a risk by trying to be something that Spielberg has nev…

why the Truman show is postmodern  is a simulation by having every resident apart from Turman himself having roles to play and to follow, he is living not in life but the creators vision of a hyperrealism that is a blend of the real which is Truman and the fiction which is everyone else. it is Pastiche as it takes 50s and 60s American culture and controls it with 90s technology. It  blends the genres of comedy, drama and the suspense of horror/thriller films. The film is a metafiction, for it is multiple realities within a huge reality a film about actors acting. is a represe…

Perspective 7 - dancer in the dark Postmodernism


Metafiction - a fiction about fiction and breaks the tradition of realism. It is not the same as meta narrative they are both different.  Intertextuality - is the interrelated between text (giving Easter eggs to deadicated fans)Mise-en-abysm - a deconstruction to describe the intertextual nature of laugnage and takes us out of reality The 4th Wall - is the idea that a glass of wall is in front of the actors and audience breaks so that can interact with each other

 why Dancer In The Dark is postmodern

 Dancer in the Dark is Meta fiction by deals with the conflict between fantasy and reality. this is highlighted by Selma’s musical daydreams by using colors to bright and exaggerated symbolizing her fantasy, whilst reality is painted in brown and grey colors. It is fragmented by being broken up into parts that question the viewer in what they are actually watching, is it a musical? or a indie film? for the way it is weird camera angles and close ups. it is mise-en-abyme by  Sel…
