Five Plot Point Breakdowns
"A movie, I think, is really only four or five moments between two people; the rest of it exists to give those moments their impact and resonance. The script exists for that. Everything does." - Robert Towne

Each analysis of selected features breaks the film down to the essential 5 major plot points, time code of when each plot point occurs included.
