5)What values is/are the antagonist(s) associated with, striving for, or symbolic of?
6)Can you think of a mythic or legendary model that is emblematic of the pattern of the story as a whole?
or does this story fall into a familiar narrative pattern (the coming-of-age story, for example)
7)What’s the significance of the title?
(not just ‘where does it come from’, but more importantly ‘what does it mean’?)
8)What’s the significance of the first image of the film?
In what ways does it connect to other elements of the film?
9)Which scenes constitute the ‘ordinary world’ of this film?
Is there any structure or pattern discernible in the sequence of ordinary-world scenes?
10)What do we learn about the protagonist(s) in these ordinary-world scenes?
What characteristics are revealed? What problems need to be faced? What ambitions, desires, or dreams does the protagonist express?
11)What happens in the sequence(s) in which the ‘call to adventure’ of the film is made?
12)In what sense is the call to adventure refused? What happens in the sequence(s) in which the refusal of the call is made in this drama?
in what ways does the hero say ‘No’ to the adventure? what obstructs the adventure at this point?
13)Who or what motivates the hero to decide to undertake the adventure? Who functions as the mentor figure and in which scene is that motivation effected?
who or what pushes the hero past the reluctance expressed in the refusal of the call?
14)At what point does the hero cross the threshold into act two? What happens in that scene? What particular challenge is faced?
in what ways does the hero commit to the adventure / main act at this point?
15)If you were to sum up the action of act one as a whole in a single sentence, what would it be?
what big change has transformed the situation from where it was at the beginning to this moment in the drama?
16)What are the biggest differences between the ordinary world of act one and the special world of act two?
17)What happens in the scene(s) once the hero has entered the special world? What new events occur that could not have happened in the ordinary world? What tests are encountered? What allies formed or enemies made?
18)Another kind of threshold is crossed as the hero enters a dangerous place and prepares to confront the biggest challenge yet. What happens in the scene(s) forming the approach to the inmost cave stage?
is there another threshold guardian involved?
19)What happens in the most important scene (or inter-connected sequence of scenes) roughly half-way through the film?
this is the drama’s ‘crisis’ or ‘ordeal’ scene (if it has a delayed crisis, then this scene occurs a little later than the film’s mid-point)
20)What’re the most immediate consequences of the crisis of the ordeal? What is/are the hero’s reward(s)? What happens in the sequence that dramatises the ‘reward’ stage?
21)In what way does the hero decide to recommit to seeing the adventure through to its end? What happens in the ‘road back’ sequence when another threshold is crossed and the hero returns to the ordinary world?
22)What are the biggest differences between the special world just left behind in act two and the ordinary world in which the hero has now entered in act three? What characterises this new space or phase?
23)What happens in the most important scene near the end of the drama?
this is the drama’s ‘climax’ or ‘resurrection’ scene
24)What happens right at the end of the film? In what sense do these scenes represent a ‘return with elixir’?
what’s been gained from the experience?
