Scorsese and Intertextuality

A few weeks ago I mentioned in passing that I commented in my BA dissertation on the way that both New York, New York and Raging Bull can be traced back to The Red Shoes, and said that I would post it up here sometime. Since then I've given the work another read...It's interesting to come back to it after four and a half years. Reading it again I can see things that I would do differently now and ideas which I should have clarified or expanded upon. However, I did also feel that I had raised some interesting points within it.

So, here it is:
A Critical Analysis of the Application of Genettean Transtextuality to the Filmic Text, with Reference to whether this Notion has Gained New Relevance with the Advent of the DVD. I hope that anyone reading it today will keep in mind that it was written a while ago now and that, as I said above, there are things that I would do differently if I was writing it today.

In its own way, this post should also be understood as the promised second part of my previous
Scorsese post that I never got around to writing....
