I will compare the similarities and differences in regards to various realist traits. Verisimilitude is the appearance of being true or real, and both films both deliver it in one way or another. One of the main ways the films are able to achieve this the camera technique. Both use handheld camera work and aim for a rough look. Only using real locations add to the verisimilitude as well as the use of non professional actors.
The director who is a fresh university graduates from a film academy, managed to fight with some film associations and succeeded in publishing the film and get attraction from the audience after defending the film associations. During that period, Bonnie and Clyde movie contributed some good reviews from local newspapers and eventually Bonnie and Clyde movie become one of the finest movie during that film movement. In the nutshell, New Hollywood advancement, cause the director to be courageous to make the film to become matchless film with any other film as the success in Bonnie and Clyde
Another review that came out, takes a different view on the film. Roger Ebert, a famous critic, gave his thoughts on the film in a review where he states, “‘Apocalypse Now’ is the best Vietnam film, one of the greatest of all films, because it pushes beyond the others, into the dark places of the soul”. This is a remarkable quote, from of the most respected reviewers of the time. Ebert also can be quoted stating, “In any event, seen again at a distance of 20 years now, "Apocalypse Now" is more clearly than ever one of the key films of the century”. Once again the statement shows Ebert’s approval for the film.
This confusing case gives people a lot of interest to watch. This movie get a lot of good reviews both in domestic and abroad. The film won the top ten best films of the American Time magazine (2010), similar to closest to the Hollywood standard Chinese genre (2011). Detective Dee and the mystery of the phantom flame is a very impressive
According to Lee, “Bruce Lee was a famous martial artist, movie star and cultural icon but his philosophy has caught fire around the world with a new generation seeking meaning and consciousness.” Bruce Lee inspired many with his philosophy and his martial arts skill. He proved the Chinese stereotypes wrong and became a very successful actor. He showed to the martial arts industry that there is more than standard and uptight karate. Bruce Lee impacted the world by breaking racial barriers in the world of acting, improving the sport of martial arts, and changing western action films. To begin, Bruce Lee broke racial barriers in the world of acting.
In the movies "The Outsiders" and "West Side Story" I noticed that there were many similarities and differences. For example, West Side Story was a musical and the gangs were known for having one 'Hispanic gang' and one 'Caucasian gang,' but The Outsiders was not a musical and the gangs were based on the poor side of the town and the richer part of the town. Although, even with the many differences there were also many similarities like, most of the people in the movies were in two gangs who hated each other. As I was watching both movies I found that many of the similarities came from how the characters acted, their interests/the scenes and the plot so, I decided to write my paragraphs based on those three subjects. Firstly, the characters
Mysterious, suspenseful thrillers were not uncharted territory for Hitchcock—the plot twists and turns became synonymous with both director and genre. But Vertigo could also be classified into another notable category: film noir. The antihero protagonist,
Javier Guardia Dr. Michael Johnmann Cultures of America May 28th 2015 “The Godfather, I and II”: Patterns of corruption By Anthony Ambrogio There is a case to be stated that the first two Godfathers films form the “Great American Movie” of the twentieth century. The Godfather part one was first released in 1972. On the other hand, The Godfather part two was released in 1974 to great critical acclaim. Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather is among one of the best films ever produced. It was consistently ranked as one of the top three films by the American film institute.
Furthermore, a peculiar romantic relationship seems to form between him and Nie. Siu Tu Ching managed to combine artfully all of the elements featuring in the film, including the action sequences, the romance, the comedy while retaining the horror element. Furthermore, he drew heavily from Leslie Cheung's looks as Ning Tsai Shen, although the Hong Kong superstar showed glimpses of his talent, deftly handling both the horror and the comic parts of the
Influenced as he was by European cinema, he was considered a great experimentalist in American cinema of the time. His film The Godfather alone produced a revenue of over 30 million dollars, which for the time was an enormous amount of money, and is also an insight to how much the general populace loved his films. They addressed what the world was thinking at the time and put into words the distrust and paranoia of people in power. Like practically no other Hollywood film of recent years the tale of the New York Mafia clan Corleone reflects the divisions, the compulsions and the fears afflicting American Society. Damaged by Vietnam, and shaken by a profound crisis of faith in the nation Americans hallowed norms of good and evil were looking more beleaguered than ever.
