This one guy once said that all films had the same structure as one another. It was like

Normal
Problem
Solution
Altered state of Normal.

Hard to explain, lol. but if you guys could just guess, or give me a list of all the theorists you know, i could say "thats the guy!" as soon as i see the name, I just cant think of his name.

I've seen plenty of films that start out screwed up, out comes the rebelion, they resolve it and right things as they feel they should be. I suppose you could call the original position normal, but then the state it's in is the problem.

That just seems like an awful broad stroke to put over everything.

Sorry, I don't know the name of the theorist.
