Borges made a writing laboratory with literature and cinema criticisms in which he tried a formal, stylistic and thematic investigation that allows to follow the evolution of his texts and the process that ends in the contamination between narrative and essay formats that is the characteristic of his prose. On the other hand, analyzing films, Borges searches for and borrows new narrative strategies, other perception forms. Stimulated by the discovery of what he considers as a naked formulation -filmic- of the narrative structure, he evaluates his scope from representation genuineness and efficiency criteria, which enables new reading ways of his own production.
