Many argue when the Golden age of Film Noir ended. One on the most common arguments is that Orsons Wells A Touch of Evil was the last of the great Noirs. However, the real last true noir may actually be Alfred Hitchcock 's Vertigo which came out later the same year is the true last noir. The first evidence Vertigo gives us is the main character John "Scottie" Ferguson. Scottie is a ex-detective with a past that haunts him.
This shows that he is an extremely flawed character as he is being dishonest and destructive to those around him. In terms of film noir, this flaw both drives the plot of the film and portrays him as an antihero. This is a commonality between most films in this style as they often present a darker view on the world. A second element that this film uses is a femme fatale who tempts the hero away from their goals and eventually helps to cause their downfall. The femme fatale in this film is Morgan Taylor, as she was unwillingly involved in the first murder, as well as causing Dixon to try to deflect blame off her father when this had a chance to expose him.
? Documentary RATIONALE: I made this documentary to investigate how a femme fatale is characterized within classical film noir. A femme fatale is a woman who is dangerous and mysterious, thus shaping the narrative of many film noir films. I have also investigated how film noir has been an attribute in modern day films, but in a less in-your-face demeanor. VIDEO AUDIO BLACK SCREEN Music: [0:00-0:08] Symphony
In the ethnographic documentary “Fire Eyes,” director Soraya Mire presented a biased opinion on the nature of female circumcision by emphasizing graphic content like gore and pain. While Mire’s documentary presents the terrifying nature of female circumcision, the use of graphic content and imagery successfully conveys Mire’s strong opinion opposing female circumcision. However, Mire neglects to discuss the cultural values behind the mutilation and instead prioritizes how she views the act as unethical. The importance in conveying the horrifying nature of female circumcision through graphic content evokes emotional responses in the audience and easily persuades the audience to follow the director’s own beliefs. In the movie “Fire Eyes,” Soraya Mire creates a personal connection with the audience by choosing to showcase bloody, painful responses rather than solely focusing on multiple retellings of women who experienced circumcision.
As mentioned before, It Happened One Night was the pinnacle of screwball comedies. The story is about a spoilt heiress, Ellen Andrews (Claudette Colbert), who runs away from home after rebelling against her father (Waler Connolly) and marries an infamous celebrity King Westley. She tries to get reunited with him throughout the film but meets a witty and recently fired reporter Peter Warne (Clark Gable) and falls in love with him. In the end Ellie ends up eloping again from her own wedding but this time, for Peter. Since the American comedies of 1930’s represented the themes of marriage and courtship, it is quite obvious that the finale will take place in relation to those terms.
For 3 years of anticipation without any hope from the consequence of the latest film Transformers Age of Extinction, here comes Transformers The Last Knight which was a film no one requested. Although, with definitive different Hollywood writers creating a ‘Writer’s Room’ for the latest Transformers film, I howbeit adhered my anticipation for some hope. This movie derived awful critical reviews from critics commonly articulating that it is the same exact movie we have gotten from every Transformers film directed by Michael Bay.

Transformers The Last Knight follows an untold tale of King Arthur in battle at the Medieval times augmenting support from the secretly veiled Transformer Knights.

Indeed in Valentin’s morphine dream, which closes the novel, Molina – as seductive, though nurturing spider woman – is inescapably caught in an essentialist web of gender: unable to move.” The films are evidence of their control over an individual through their power to decide the appropriate behaviour of an individual. This is represented by Molina’s description as a female, and Valentin who cannot surrender to the seduction of Molina and keep his political ideas. The spider woman is not a metaphor of an character but rather of society as a whole. Society creates a web of standards that is fed to the characters and related again through the stories of the films. In conclusion, Kiss of the Spider Woman is not a story about a story of gay love but it is still a tale of seduction.
