Who would have thought that there is only one structure to all successful movies. But it is true. In this book Snyder show how all good movies follow the exact same structure, from opening shot, through the twists and turns of the plot to the ending. He gives a number of examples of movies, and breaks them down. In many cases, the structure is followed even to the minute within the movie that the major plot points are supposed to occur. Who would have believed it?
