A Variety of Thrills, thrillers and different ways of approaching them
MetadataShow full item record
Thriller is a broad genre. This genre is constructed by the use of different people involved in the movie process; the producers and advertisers, critics and consumers. They all have different reasons to call a thriller a thriller. I did a discourse analysis on three movies to see whether the use of the term ' thriller' is used by all this parties in the same way and how this will construct the genre. The three movies in that are analysed are The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011), Black Swan (2010) and Hide and Seek (2005).
