META-NARRATIVE IN THE MOVIES: TELL ME A STORY. Joseph Kupfer. Palgrave Pivot, Palgrave Macmillan, St. Martin's Press, Inc., New York, 2014. 142 pp. with 5 ills. 21 x 13 cm. ISBN 9781137410870 In English.
Publisher's description: An interdisciplinary work in philosophy and film studies, Joseph Kupfer investigates narrative theory through the analysis of five films that have narrative as their subject matter and where stories and storytelling are central: A River Runs Through It, Wonder Boys, Ordinary People, The Shape of Things and Unforgiven. Kupfer's readings of the films explore the role of story creation in knowing ourselves and planning our future, in structuring social relationships, and in sharpening our experience of popular culture - including mass-marketed films.
