One of director Steven Spielberg’s greatest films, Raiders of the Lost Ark is the quintessential Indiana Jones film. This movie opens in a jungle where protagonist Dr. Indiana “Indy” Jones is revealed as he seeks an ancient relic in a booby-trapped cave. It is this jungle scene at the film’s opening which is perhaps the best example of the director’s ability to hook the viewer for the remainder of the film. During the aforementioned scene, the Nazi forces reveal themselves as the antagonists of the film, and continue to present the biggest obstacle to Indiana Jones. As the movie progresses, the plot develops the title character as someone who would risk life in order to follow through on his promises and aspirations.
15 Sick Sociopaths You Thought Were Hot Come on, admit it, we love the crazies. And since the 1970’s movies have introduced us to a slew of twisted, depraved killers and sociopaths that shock us but also deeply intrigue us. Sociopathy (sometimes also known as a psychopathy) is defined as a type of personality disorder. People with this disorder often display extreme antisocial attitudes (which many times result in criminal acts) and a lack of conscience. They are unable to feel guilt or have empathy for others.
As with many of the best horror films, there 's a certain pathos to the Gill-Man, who, while being bloodthirsty and violent, is also the last, lonely member of an extinct species. In the finale of The Creature Walks Among Us, the Gill-Man runs away from humanity that brought him so much woe towards his true home - the ocean. Despite being unable to breathe in water anymore, he nevertheless walks into the sea, ready to die. To young del Toro, this thin line between terrifying and sympathetic became an endless source of inspiration. You can see this in his very
Although the crime is a crime of passion, where having revenge is the most important aspect, the probing into the psyche of a killer within his laboratory is a fascinating watch. 8. Locke (2013) Based on the Steven Knight novel, the movie focuses on one character, the site foreman Ivan Locke, who drives a car for the entire 90 minutes of the movie. Cinematically speaking, this might be one of the most boring movies, as it does not present with all the fancy elements of a commercial film. However, the plot and character development are just as expertly done by the director as it is done in the novels by Steven Knight, and is a must watch for those who don’t believe that novels cannot be recreated on
Dylan Mr. Woodard Film Studies – A 24th, September 2014 Circular Narrative A circular narrative is a narrative that has certain plot points repeating throughout the film; this is a technique that a lot of writers and directors use, risking a lot of money. Circular narrative rarely makes it into mainstream movies and this probably happens because it doesn’t often fit neatly into the sort of plot Hollywood is used to producing. In these circular narrative films the end of the movie usually connects right back to the start of the movie making an endless loop of a movie. Most of the time, people fail to grasp the meaning of the films due to the movies’ complexity and we can see these demonstrations in a variety of modern films such as Groundhog

“Ernest Hemmingway once wrote ‘The world is a fine place and worth fighting for.’” I agree with the second part.” These are the last lines spoken in the crime thriller Se7en, by Detective William Somerset, who is played by Morgan Freeman. This line resonated with me because it reflects the overall outlook of the film. The setting, characters, and plot, express the idea that the world is a dark and dangerous place, and that the good guys don’t always come out on top. Working in an unnamed city, Detective Somerset is a seasoned yet jaded homicide detective who is on the brink of retiring. His hopes of retirement are dashed when a young detective named David Mills, who is played by Brad Pitt, is transferred to his precinct.
ARTS1501 Abigail Natnat March 30, 2016 N01100811 Film Essay Assignment The first sequence is the last scene from Apocalypse Now (1979) which was directed by Francis Ford Coppola. This scene is popularly known as “The Horror” and is a hybrid of classical paradigm and formalist style. It is a classical paradigm because the sequence is actually going about with a story which means that some of the parts are continually edited revealed to be in one setting which is the jungle where Captain Willard takes on with his assigned mission to deal with Colonel Kurtz. On the other hand, the scene is also a formalist style which particularly touches on each of the montage types. First, it is a conceptual type of montage because the theme
HATEFUL EIGHT Quentin Tarantino has always been one of the most controversial and charismatic auteurs (if I may call) in Hollywood, as he proves to be an edgy writer/director who dares to tackle an aspect of modern life so dark, so brutal that the public may feel offended and uncomfortable. Also, having spent his youth at the video store, he constantly inserts homages to the old days of cinema and his works reflected so much of the old value to a point that people sometimes accuse him of being a copycat. That being said, his fans respect and admire him because he boldly walks the line. Rising from early movies like the unique indie heist flick Reservoir Dogs to recent success like Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained, together with involvement in countless screenplays and side trips like the co-op mission with Robert Rodriguez in Grindhouse (segment ‘Death Proof’), Tarantino secures a spot in the line of A-list directors. The Hateful Eight arrived in late 2015 (actually right on time with J.J. Abrams’ long-waited The Force Awakens at the box office) as the eighth directorial piece from Tarantino.
