Toward A Rhetoric of Visual Fragments: Analyzing Disjunctive Narratives.
Schilb, John
JAC: A Journal of Composition Theory, v22 n4 p743-64 Fall 2002
Pursues a rhetoric of visual fragments by considering the disjunctive packaging of two particular fictional films: Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 classic "Vertigo" and Christopher Reeve's 1997 adaptation of Alice Elliott Dark's short story, "In the Gloaming." Considers how "Vertigo" offers conflicting stories about the possibility of technologically resurrecting the past. Notes that contrasts between the film and its adjacent documentary segments point to tension between current civil rights agendas. (SG)
