[quote=“blue_lou_boyle”]interesting. But I think you’ll find this trajectory in most films…all stories are based on 7 templates. some films sucessfully hide their construction but they pretty much all conform to the ancient greek tales.[/quote]
I mean from a filmic point of view, the scene layouts are very similar. I was trying to make it sound general, but it’s more a scene-by-scene similarity. Plus Phillips is quite cine-literate from what I can tell.
I am familiar with Joseph Campbell though and Hero with a Thousand Faces and such.
