Code of mode of representation/Style Film is usually “catholic” (objective in how they deal with reality/subject matter)…but can be subjective Objective film: Style of Realism Subjective Film: Formulism Realism: Matter of 1:1 correspondence of how they are in reality and how they are rendered (dedicated to showing and recording that reality) -> from the mimetic (pantomime, mimic) As a method and attitude of mind Could this be considered an accurate depiction of reality/nature? Realism is no guarantee of truth (Documentary is the most realist of all realist styles, those aren’t always true) Realism as an attitude of mind: RELATIVE truth, truth that can be verified in experience effect of ACTION and motivation people and their relationship to institutions, society, setting, etc. (characters are layered) often critical of status quo realist likes to deal with common average people and everyday situations (wants audience to recognize character and find the situations topical)
