According to Bishop “Across the whole picture is a hazy aura created by the use of sfumato, a shading technique in which outlines are slightly blurred.

However, although they are different films, they both utilize realist aesthetics to offer a truth about the world we live in today.

In Edward Scissorhands, Burton uses bright, fun colors such as bright pink, blue, yellow and beautiful green lawns to show the “happiness” in the suburban life. In addition, Tim uses incredibly bright lighting in the chocolate factory which is opposite from the lighting in Charlie’s small, dark, dirty house.

In The Great Gatsby, Baz Luhrman has reinvigorated the 1925 classic novel by introducing many modern filming technology such as lighting and colour; sound and music and editing. While Joe Wright has attempted to do the complete opposite by taking the modern novel, Atonement ,and attempting to recreate the harsh reality of the past by using the same filmic techniques as Baz Luhrman. However Joe Wright is more successful in recreating the past and showing the harsh realities of the era in Atonement. The lighting in The Great Gatsby tends to be theatrical and illuminates the characters by bringing the focus on them and not on the background. An example of this would be when we are introduced to daisy for the first time, she is the focus of attention and is given almost a dreamlike quality by using soft lighting.
Baz Luhrmann is widely acknowledged for his Red Curtain Trilogy which are films aimed at heightening an artificial nature and for engaging the audience. Through an examination of the films Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby, the evolution and adaptation of his techniques become evident. Luhrmann’s belief in a ‘theatrical cinema’ can be observed to varying degrees through the three films and his choice to employ cinematic techniques such as self-reflexivity, pastiche and hyperbolic hyperbole. The cinematic technique of self-reflexivity allows a film to draw attention to itself as ‘not about naturalism’ and asks the audience to suspend their disbelief and believe in the fictional construct of the film. Self-reflexivity is employed in Romeo + Juliet by immediately drawing attention to the fact that the film is represented as a news report rather than the original format of a Shakespearean play.
