I'm looking for examples of films or television programmes that use
still photography as an aspect of their mise-en-scene, particularly
those that 'energise' the photograph within the temporal continuity
of the film (e.g. using voice-over narration). I'd also be grateful
for reading suggestions ( I've looked at the Patrice
Petro collection, FUGITIVE IMAGEs, and take Sontag, Bourdieu and
Benjamin as read).
Any suggestions - from the opening of Chinatown to La Jettee! - most
