I actually wrote a paragraph or two response, then deleted it because my response was rather shapeless.

I'm currently reading a great book that touches directly on the question of novels vs. film. The Conversations: Walter Murch and the Art of Editing Film by Michael Ondaatje. Walter Murch is a distinguished film editor whose thoughts remind me a lot of Stanley Cavell. If anything, his thoughts reveal many ways that film can acheive interiority and subjective narration.

Walter Murch's earlier book, In the Blink of an Eye is similiarly brilliant.
