About “Plot and Theme” – A Film Aesthetics Blog

You have somehow stumbled upon my blog devoted to discussing films.  Good for you. For the most part, I will endeavor to write about film in the context of the specific aesthetics of the film in question. Here’s where to go to for the bigger, in-depth explanation: The Things We Think And Do Not Say.   I intend to provide meaningful, fun analysis of films with an eye towards thought-out, edited pieces. In addition to discussion on particular films, I will also address movie news topics that interest me. Things like upcoming films, trailer releases, and awards season announcements.

Each piece written for this blog represents my ideas with regards to analysis of a particular film. All opinions are my own and all content is produced by me personally and is the property of Derek Jacobs, unless noted otherwise.  Reprinting of the works comprising this blog are allowed on condition that due credit is given to the author and the blog url is mentioned.  All images of films, media, and similar representations are the property of their respective creators and are intended for educational purposes and thus fall under the fair use provisions of the US Code Title 17, Chapter 1, Subsection 107.

If you enjoy the pieces you read, please share them on all your favorite social media outlets, as I love expanding my readership and I have made it as easy as posible to hare these posts on all your favorite dealies.  I always welcome comments, suggestions, feedback, and discussions on the particular posts (you have to be reading the single post in order to access the comments section).

I will always provide this content free of charge, but if you particularly enjoy the pieces you read within and derive significant value from them to the point of feeling like you’d like to support the blog, you may contribute bitcoin donations to Plot and Theme’s personal Bitcoin Address (and, you can check all the donations that have ever been sent!  Bitcoin is awesome).

  2. Hi Derek. I just found your blog doing an Essay for a subject called ” Adaptaciones de la literatura a la pantalla” ( I’m from Spain so a literal translation would be something like Literary works to film adaptations ) Anyways I was wondering , have you ever seen a Korean movie? if so, what do you think about the whole Korean movie production? If not, I highly recommend you to take a look. You won’t regret it.


  3. I’m probably way out of line here but I really like your site and I wonder if you’d ever consider selling it?

    I work for Flippa.com and I’m almost certain our buyers would be interested in this, you’d likely do quite well.

    Please feel free to let me know if you’d like to discuss and I’ll send you through some info. If not, no problem and all the best.
