The Science of Story is the theme for my Art House sketchbook project, which was completed in April 2012. Hollywood movies have been getting more and more formulaic so my idea was to reduce movies to icons in an attempt to see how much of the story was still recognisable.
I chose to use the top 12 movies on IMDB's list of the top 250, correct as of March 2012.
- The Shawshank Redemption
- The Godfather
- The Godfather ll
- Pulp Fiction
- The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
- 12 Angry Men
- Schindler's List
- The Dark Knight
- The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
- One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
- Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back
- Fight Club
