summary
Postmodern traces Welles's impact on contemporary media narratives, focusing on four emerging narrative modes found in the unfinished RKO films: deconstruction of the first-person singular, adaptation of classic texts for mass media, exploration of the self via primitivism, and examination of the line between reality and fiction. Ultimately, these four narrative styles would enormously impact the development of mass media entertainment, and they still resonate today in popular modes like the “mock”umentary and reality television
