This chapter first examines the way in which subjectivity in film is often produced by causality and restrictions that refocus attention to proximal sites of experience. It then characterizes the way in which temporal experiences are subjective, but cued by a set of cognitive and affective parameters in the diegetic world. It demonstrates the means by which temporal experiences provide modal tones to visual fiction.

Keywords:   visual fiction, film, temporal experiences, subjectivity
