Methodology - Literary Analysis
The literary analysis of this film has led me to conclude that the various literary devices help in bringing out the philosophical aspects of the movie. In other words, literary analysis directly supports philosophical analysis. Specifically, the main philosophical theme of this movie and ideas of Utopia are explained beautifully in this movie through literary means such as allegory, imagery and climax. The method I used to achieve this literary analysis was to use the various literary techniques I learned about literary criticism. To achieve this I watched the movie twice to achieve two different purposes. First, I viewed the movie with the purpose of finding its relation to my research project of parallel universe. Then, I watched it with the motive of locating its main theme and finding various literary devices at work which help in bringing out the main theme of the movie. I then tried to combine these two motives and came with the conclusion that philosophical analysis is directly related to literary analysis.
