I‟m Not There
Focus Questions(what you should be able to answer bythe end)- What is a biopic and what does it try toachieve?- How does
I‟m Not There „explode‟ the
biopic genre?- How does this connect to the notions of re-framing identity?
Genre knowledge
What‟s the point?
Like with short text and with Shakespeare, understanding the purposeof the genre is a useful strategy for getting at the wider purpose of thetext.
So, with short text, we could look at how Ford‟s stories brought the
average, every-day struggler into the realm of literature. In
Shakespeare, we examined how the play fits Nietzsche‟s belief in what
the purpose of tragedy was.
 And so with film, we begin by considering the relationship between
Not There and its genre.
