The juxtapositions of fragments in Histoire(s) are of various kinds accomplished by various means. They involve angles, light, surface, depth, duration (acceleration, slow motion, flickering), graphic lines (verticality, horizontality), scale and dimension. Some are rhetorical, poetic or musical: condensations, inversions, correspondences, contraries, dissonances, contrasts, rhythms, pauses, repetitions, refrains, rhymes, succession, tempo, conflation. Some, while formal and rhetorical, specifically involve recurrent motifs and subjects: hands, eyes, monsters, aircraft, bestiality, savagery, executions, heroism, innocence, dance, war, slaughter, the Holocaust, Hitler, Mussolini, Hitchcock, Rossellini, John Ford, Jean Renoir, Nick Ray, D W Griffith, Sergei Eisenstein, Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin.
