Personnages, 1960
A great movie or a play has several layers of content. There is a main plot that is easy to spot and follow(black paint). There are several supporting plots (red and blue paint). They are shorter, less obvious, but not less important. All plots are interacting, intersecting and converging with each other. These interactions create the sandbox where the personages live. The last layer is the number of citations, visual clues(the doodles). They connect the movie to other pieces of artwork, thus putting the movie in th global art context.
