A Frame Apart Episode 68 - Arthur Christmas VS The Nightmare Before Christmas | Modern Superior

This week we continue our holiday celebration with a look at a cult classic versus some newer fare. We’re tackling Arthur Christmas versus The Nightmare Before Christmas, and discussing the concept of identity through theories of persona, self-concept, social and cultural identity, and identity formation. We flush out Jack Skelington’s identity crisis at the foreground of Nightmare, while discussing the lack of self-concept found in various characters throughout Arthur Christmas. How does one define oneself outside of their job? Can you find yourself  despite feeling pigeon-holed into a specific persona? We discuss these issues and so much more!
