The book ,”The Outsider”, has some differences from the novel and the film. For example, when Randy(a soc) was talking to Ponyboy Curtis in the novel, Randy said that he was going to load up his mustang and head south; in the film Randy didn’t say this. These differences are not hard to tell sometimes, or they are obvious. Dallas Winston robbing a store, Sodapop Curtis less developed, the car accident, and Dallis chasing kids. Here are some differences in the novel and movie.
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. The Sycamore Grove beach where we meet Romeo has a broken down theatre that is reminiscent of The Globe theatre where the original Romeo and Juliet was performed. This incorporation of a theatre, the use of title cards and symbols such as theatre masks allow the audience to be reminded that the construct is not the original but a re-adaptation of a Shakespearean play. Moulin Rouge begins with the introduction of a red curtain and conductor; the viewer is positioned as an audience member, which makes the audience conscious that they are watching a ‘play’ or work of
What would you do if you lived in a controlled community where you have no choices? I will be writing about The Giver and the Truman Show, comparing and contrasting both. First the characters or symbols, then the setting. The Truman Show is a movie inside a movie. The Giver is about a controlled community but a boy named Jonas soon becomes the Receiver and he learns the truth and tries to run away.
Clayton has the ability to portray ambiguity in many ways throughout the movie, such as with cinematic effects. James has less of an opportunity to demonstrate obscurity through his writing and readers are responsible for using their imagination to decipher the ambiguity. In film version, the obscurity is much clearer because Clayton has the ability to dictate many aspects of the film including character facial expression, setting, sound, and many more. James can only portray a sense of obscurity through his writing and by reader
In the movie, Monty Python the Quest for the Holy Grail, themes of chivalry are mocked and used to create the overall theme of the movie. This essay is to examine and compare the themes of chivalry, knightly code, courtly love, role of religion, and good vs evil. Most of these mentioned themes are either mocked or used to develop the plot or both. The theme of crusades or religious pilgrimages is very prominent in this time period we are studying. In the movie the crusade theme comes into play to develop the plot line and main story.
The clip belongs to the movie The Hustler (Robert Rossen, 1961) an adult story about life and love, greed, and self-destruction of isolated characters but also a story about conscience and redemption. The clip reproduces the first meeting about Eddie (Paul Newman) and Sarah (Piper Laurie), starting the romantic part of the film. The director uses both widescreen and black and white to produce a realistic atmosphere and highlight the isolation of the characters in their relationship. This essay analyzes the use of those devices in three different moments of the clip anticipating the dénouement of the plot through the depiction of the characters. In the entire movie, the use of the widescreen in addition to the performance of the actors emphasizes
The clip belongs to the movie The Hustler (Robert Rossen, 1961) an adult story about life and love, greed, and self-destruction of isolated characters but also a story about conscience and redemption. The clip reproduces the first meeting about Eddie (Paul Newman) and Sarah (Piper Laurie), anticipating the romantic relationship of the film. The director uses both widescreen and black and white to produce a realistic atmosphere and highlight the isolation of the characters in their relationship. This essay analyzes the use of those devises in three different moments of the clip and how they guess the dénouement of the plot through the depiction of the characters. In the entire movie, the use of the widescreen in addition to the performance of the actors emphasizes the isolation of the characters (Bordwell, 1985 p.20), but this is especially relevant with Eddie and Sarah, so, when their first meeting occurs in the bus-station´s cafeteria, Sarah is sitting on the left of the screen and Eddie sits opposite, on the right, moreover, the use of deep focus increases the sense of a isolation and distance between them.
Agatha Christie is contributing to the mood by creating a scene similar to a storm scene in a movie- the audience is wary about what is going on. They are forced to predict what will happen in the future using the mood that is portrayed by the author in this segment of the chapter. By using suggestive words to describe the setting, the author is able to make a movie in the readers’ heads, setting the mood and affecting their thoughts and
I think the movie version is better than the book. The reason for this is because the movie has a lot more character than the book does. You get to see what the characters look like, while the book doesn’t give a good description of the people in the book at all. You can feel the mood better in the movie because of all of the extra things, like the lightning and fog, to capture the mood. Some similarities I found in both the movie and the book is that Scrooge says, “Bah!
There are multiple instances where the movie jumps backwards and forwards in timeline. The narration in the movie can be described as circular narrative as the ending and beginning when merged complete the timeline of the movie(1). This narrative structure is rather unconventional and reminds the audience at multiple instances that this is not real life and they are watching a movie. One of these instances include Mia (Uma Thurman) drawing a rectangle on screen while talking to Vincent (John Travolta) in car in front of Jack Rabbit Slim’s. The film includes multiple clues which link its narration style to Post Modernism.
