Through an in depth analysis of Alfred Hitchcock's ‘North by Northwest’ (NBNW), it becomes evident that in order for films to be able to entertain their audiences they must ‘weave’ or manipulate images, characters and issues. This is evident through two particular scene within the film, including: chapters 5 and 26 (clickview). Hitchcock's manipulation of issues and characters in NBNW to entertain the audience is exemplified through the severity of the issues faced by the protagonist, Roger O Thornhill (R.O.T) and his comical response and attitude towards the adversity he faces.

They contrast with the rest of the films because there is an unprecedented naturalness that grounds the films and makes them feel like real places the audience could actually be a part of. As established before, Cuarón primary focus was to be explicit about the relationship between the characters and the environment, where he used the environment to reveal more of the world to audience. Many of the scenes, such as the Care of Magical Creatures class, the Hogsmeade excursion and the trio running through the school grounds feature the scenic landscape, which is then combined with prolonged shots of the scenery that set the time, place and mood of a scene.
