Repetition in film form the case of Kim Ki-Duk
This thesis mainly deals with repetition in film form. Repetition which is a key concept shows itself in many different forms. In philosophy there are several perceptions at stake. In art forms in which it is structured systematically repetition is one of the basic elements. As for film form, there are concepts that help us to understand the function of it. The basic concern of this thesis is constructing three basic repetition types by grounding on the perceptions of repetition in philosophy by also using basic concepts of repetition in film form. These types of repetitions in film form are specified as informative, constructive and poetic repetitions. As the case study, the films of Kim Ki-duk who is an amateur-auteur director with a unique cinematic style are analyzed on the ground of these constructed types.
