Your questions are always going to fall in one of three categories, so it might be helpful to set up notes with this in mind.

1. Characters
The main characters and how they develop
Relationships between characters and how these develop
Importance of secondary characters

2. Themes
Main themes and how these are treated
Sub-themes and why these are important / interesting

3. Technical stuff
a) literature: narrative point of view; structure of the work; use of language...
b) film: film techniques (panning, close-ups etc) use of dialogue / music...

It is very important in your work to refer closely to the book or film. So make sure your revision notes also include quotations and/or specific examples of the points you are making.
