Seeing is Believing demonstrates that serious dramatic films usually express deeply-running visions of life, designated as Christian, Greek, American or skeptical. The author provides a narrative analysis that investigates these "deep structures" the mythic elements embedded in the films, while paying close attention to the comprehensive meaning of the whole film, not just the themes or implications that may be identified in the film's discrete parts.
