Every two weeks, join Mark for an unnecessarily deep dive into the story structure of a beloved and interesting film to try and find out what it means and how it goes about meaning it. 

    Back To The Future

    Back To The Future

    Where Mark is going, he needs overanalysis as he tries to figure what makes Back To The Future so (ahem) electrifying, what any story is truly 'about', and if the whole trilogy is secretly the best sequel to Star Wars ever made.https://markoveranalysesfilm.buzzsprout.com/https://www.markoveranalysesstory.com/https://twitter.com/overanalysefilm

    The Bear (Pilot & Season 1)

    The Bear (Pilot & Season 1)

    Mark lets the overanalysis rip as he tries to figure out what makes the first season of The Bear so nerve-shredding, how it uses Sydney and Cousin Richie to express arguments within its protagonist, and if anyone else gets as excited by the term 'fractal structure' as he does. https://markoveranalysesfilm.buzzsprout.com/https://www.markoveranalysesstory.com/https://twitter.com/overanalysefilm

    Before Sunrise

    Before Sunrise

    If there's any magic in this world, it's in the space between Mark and a great movie as he tries to figure out what makes Before Sunrise so romantic, how the film is a masterpiece of understated structure, and why nobody has described the brilliance of Richard Linklater better than Richard Linklater describing the brilliance of Eric Rohmer.https://markoveranalysesfilm.buzzsprout.com/https://www.markoveranalysesstory.com/https://twitter.com/overanalysefilm

    There Will Be Blood

    There Will Be Blood

    Ladies and Gentlemen, if Mark says he's an overanalyser, you will agree as he tries to figure out what makes There Will Be Blood feel so monumental, why Roger Ebert was right to describe it as "imperfect", and if anyone ever asked about the guys they definitely knew Daniel murdered.https://markoveranalysesfilm.buzzsprout.com/https://www.markoveranalysesstory.com/https://twitter.com/overanalysefilm

    The Super Mario Bros Movie Vs Wall-E

    The Super Mario Bros Movie Vs Wall-E

    Mark grabs the Wall-E power up as he tries to figure out what makes The Super Mario Bros feel so hollow and Wall-E so heartfelt, why it's so important for someone to learn something in a story, and if anyone can hear his ranting over the sound of The Super Mario Bros Movie printing money. https://markoveranalysesfilm.buzzsprout.com/https://www.markoveranalysesstory.com/https://twitter.com/overanalysefilm

    Home Alone

    Home Alone

    Mark is what the French call "les incompetent" as he tries to figure out what makes Home Alone such a Christmas classic, why one sequence 76 minutes in so dominates our memories of the film, and how kids never notice how amazing Kevin's house is.https://markoveranalysesfilm.buzzsprout.com/https://www.markoveranalysesstory.com/https://twitter.com/overanalysefilm
