The main aim of this paper is to demonstrate postmodern concepts exemplified in contemporary film. The first part of the work discusses both the notion of intertextuality recognized as the linchpin of defying postmodern film, and the double coding theory. The most important authors belonging to the field of literary criticism and social theories who significantly contributed to understanding of postmodern textuality are also spotlighted in this part of the work. The second part of the work represents analytic frame where entries of postmodern film are given. The third part of the work is actually a debate on when to start with postmodern analysis along with the argument about what postmodern film actually is and which cinematic directions can be regarded as postmodern film precursors.
