Due online by 1/26: What is the relationship between story and being; in other words, between narrative disclosure and the experience of identity (and thus of ‘reality) in Eyes Wide Shut? For example: how does the story that Alice tells affect Bill? What is the relationship between narrative and reality in the film? How does the narration of the dream recast this relationship?
What does Ziegler do to recast the constructed story for Bill, for the audience of the film? How does the story of Mandy's death reframe events for Bill?
I am asking you to post multiple times in this assignment, and to try and give evidence for your claims by talking as specifically about the film as I did after we watched the 'first act' of the screenplay in class... please give examples and explain what you 'saw' in the film with direct quotation or reference to scenes, editing choices, framing and dialog that make up the "story".
