How do you show repetition in a movie without actually repeating stuff?
If you need to show that something -- an event, a series of events -- has been happening in the life of a character for a long time in the past and repeatedly, how do you establish that without actually repeating those things in the movie?
Or may be the answer is just to repeat them? I want to keep an open mind. What's your opinion and what has been your experience with writing or filming or editing such material?
