An argument of how and why to change this blockbuster film into a better narrative through a graphic novel.

The video includes: voiceovers; humongous explosions; the Brady Bunch; a Charlie Brown break-it-down; South Park; and of course, Scott McCloud.

  1. You put forth an entertaining and compelling argument that gets to the heart of what, narratologically-speaking, is so interesting about the Usual Suspects and how that could be further advanced if it were told through an alternative medium like the graphic novel. There is a hollow quality to the characterizations in the film, and the static image format could get away with adding more detail without dispelling the story's allure.
