Scott Eric Kaufman's Visual Rhetoric Compendium (as of 11/28/2011) (For the record, many more [and all future] updates can be found here.) By request, below are the links to all of the visual rhetoric exegeses (a.k.a. McCloud or Bordwell-inspired "lecture notes") I've produced in the past few years. I would say I'm surprised there aren't more of them, but then I remember 1) how labor-intensive they are to compose and 2) the number of drafts I've deemed insufficient for public consumption that linger unfinished in assorted folders. So here goes: Films: Batman Begins (classic horror) - Christopher Nolan Blow-Up (I) - Michelangelo Antonioni Blow-Up (II)- Michelangelo Antonioni The Dark Knight (I) - Christopher Nolan The Dark Knight (II) - Christopher Nolan Fight Club - David Fincher Fight Club (II) - David Fincher Fight Club (III) - David Fincher Ghost World - Terry Zwigof Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind - Hayao Miyazaki Superman - Richard Donner Superman Returns - Bryan Singer 30 Days of Night - David Slade Television Shows: Avatar: The Last Airbender - "The Ember Island Players" Buffy the Vampire Slayer - "Hush" Doctor Who - "Time of Angels" Doctor Who - "Time of Angels" - Buckling the Frame Doctor Who - "The Eleventh Hour" Doctor Who - "The Pandorica Opens" Leverage - "The Van Gogh Job" Mad Men - "The Grown-Ups" Mad Men - "Shut the Door. Have a seat." Mad Men (I) - "The Rejected" Mad Men (II) - "The Rejected" Mad Men (I) - "The Chrysanthemum and the Sword" Mad Men (II) - "The Chrysanthemum and the Sword" Mad Men (I) - "The Suitcase" Mad Men (II) - "The Suitcase" The Walking Dead - "Days Gone Bye" Comics: American Born Chinese - Gene Luen Yang Blankets - Craig Thompson Fun Home - Alison Bechdel Ghost World - Daniel Clowes Kick-Ass (I) - Mark Millar Kick-Ass (II) - Mark Millar Planetary/Batman: Night on Earth - Warren Ellis 30 Days of Night - Steve Niles The Walking Dead (word-specific panels) The Walking Dead (picture-specific panels) - Robert Kirkman Watchmen (panel construction) (I) - Alan Moore Watchmen (panel construction) (II) - Alan Moore Watchmen (responsible film criticism) - Anthony Lane Watchmen (unfilmable film filmed) - Zak Snyder vs. Alan Moore Watchmen (students as murderers) - Alan Moore Watchmen (Dr. Manhattan as a figure of the reader) - Alan Moore Themes: On Poorly Executed Claustrophobia in Film and Television On Effectively Executed Claustrophobia in Wolfgang Petersen's Das Boot
