The Anatomy of Movies

(Wrong Hands/John Atkinson)

Cartoonist John Atkinson, who recently diagrammed the anatomical structure of popular musical genres, now brings that same keen analysis to film.

He reveals that movies are terribly formulaic. It would be nice to mix them up a bit. Let's have action films that end with ukulele covers of The Cure songs, explosions in romantic comedies, and weird rural people in sci-fi movies.
