Task 2

Modes of address:

Open;
Leaves the ending unresolved, giving no closure and a lot of questions still needing to be answered. This leaves the viewer walking away potentially with a unsatisfied feeling as they don’t know what just happened, though this is usually intended by the director.

Closed;
Leaves the ending with full closure. This ends the film, ties up all loose ends and has no continuation past the film.

Multi-strand;
Has different stories intertwining with each other, soaps are more likely to use this type of narrative.

Alternative;
Doesn’t follow from start to end, unclear order of events and jumping through time.

Investigative;
You go on an investigation throughout the narrative and discover the story as they do in the film.
