Check out 'The Hero with a 1000 faces' by Joseph Campbell. Didn't get a chance to get it yet, but it's been recommended by one of my lecturers in college

I googled Joseph Campbell and headed to the most brief and conscise summary of the hero Myth/Quest thing. Like how there's the hero, a different worlds, a mentor all that. On the summary I looked at, they applied it to Star Wars, which means nowt to me, but I could understand enough to adapt it to Harry Potter.

This fits the adventure story, but as Mim points out, there are some things that won't fit this.

Like Mim, I thought about Crash, (I went to see it twice last year) and cos its also not just one, but a load of different stories, it doesn't really fit into it, and there is no real hero.

Interesting

This reminded me of a quote I read just last week - although for the life of me I can't remember who said it or what film they were talking about (how helpful!). Anyway, the actor or actress said that there exists xx storylines, and (whatever film they were talking about) is the xx+1. A very exceptional film, apparently - so exceptional I can't even remember what it was...

Anyone have any inkling what I'm talking about...?
