The artistic choices made in the production of cinema have a great impact on the way the audience will perceive certain aspects of the performance. One director may choose to highlight a certain scene, while another director may push it aside as trivial. A majority of the symbolism behind theatre lends itself to open interpretation, but some underlying messages have a widely accepted truth. In Nicholas Hytner’s 1996 interpretation of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, lighting and camera angles help accentuate the importance of particular moments throughout the film. I chose to analyze the courthouse scene in which Deputy Danforth asks Elizabeth whether or not John Proctor committed the crime of adultery.
Reflexivity is a common device used in order to tell a story through modern day documentary filmmaking. Stories We Tell (Dir. Sarah Polley) is a formidable example of reflexive storytelling in a way that expresses itself well enough to hide the small details of fabrication that make the film tell such an intriguing story. Stories We Tell is a prime example of applying the narrators voice into the documentary because, for one, the material is a personal subject for Sarah Polley, but it lends a hand to telling the story in a way that speaks to the true meaning of the film which is slowly unraveled throughout the entire piece. Sarah Polley's Stories We Tell is unique in the way that for a documentary, the Filmmaker is much more than just one role in the film.
The Maltese Falcon takes advantage of the continuity system to make each cut leave a lasting impact and push the plot forward. The film, while not devoid of cuts, makes
Creating a suspenseful movie without it becoming boring, or creating a funny movie that’s not full of cheap jokes are both feats in their own right but the Coen brothers were able to combine the two into there one with their knockout debut Blood Simple. Blood Simples editing creates a suspenseful neo noir film that is full of dramatic irony. The audience knows going on behind the scenes but the characters don 't and they keep making the worst choices. The first edit I will look at in the film is when Marty breaks into Rays house and grabs hold of Abby.
He knows what is right and wrong but one example has been haunting him in his life. Now in a Puritan society, sin had to have been confessed publicly and they must bear their shame. This however goes against what the Word actually says and this is what created Arthur Dimmesdale as a character. He most likely has already repented to God but his guilt will not leave until he confesses it to his congregation and it leads him to other “ways” of repentance. Being reminded of his guilt 24/7 causes his his health to deteriorate to the point of death, possibly alluding to the fact that the wages of sin are death.
The power of belief shapes events into hardline certainties and creates situations where opinions will define the term success. In John Patrick Shanley’s story Doubt: A Parable, Sister Aloysius forms doubts about Father Flynn’s actions and diligently tries to expose Father Flynn based off of negligible evidence. A Catholic school in the Bronx is stuck at the crossroads as a rigid disciplinarian nun and the liberal parish priest share different views pertaining not only to their religion. The principal, Sister Aloysius, accuses Father Flynn of having inappropriate relations with the school’s first black student. She goes on a personal crusade to expunge Father Flynn from St. Nicholas without a fragment of validation expect her moral certitude.
Gladiator remains as an especially clear case of the mixture of hegemonic dream and its counter-drive in famous movies, particularly, the dualism of magnificent wistfulness and expectant cognizance that characterizes the epic film. In the contemporary period, in which worldwide social accounts are being changed from different bearings, the epic film can again be seen as a key type of typical
His visions for film are so clear in his mind, and are even clearer when portrayed in his films. His films have influenced the new generation to be more creative in hopes to make the new filmmakers try and create something as visually entertaining and unique.

His universe is quite appealing than scary, although he uses strange characters to get his point across.
Also in the movie the boy had to play games with his grandma and his mom, I think some kids could relate to this because every kid is forced to do things they don't want to do. In the movie he was spacing out about this girl he liked all of the time and then he lied to his mom about what he was thinking about, this relates with kids lives because all kids are lying to their parents sometime or another. In the story there was a huge wall that no one was allowed to cross over and the boy did it anyway and then he got in trouble be the short guy that ran Thleed Ville found out he left the town and he got in big trouble, people can relate to this because everyone does things that we are not suppose to do for no

It is very ironic because while at the Front, all the men were discussing on what they are planning to do once the get home, but reality is nothing will ever be the same, wherever they go. Paul was the first to exhibit that loss of hope. I agree with the main thesis of this book that war is uncalled for, it is just a game that ruins innocent lives of the young population while the nations that they are fighting for are using them as toys, all just politics. The main thesis of this book is so easily shut down, but all it is is the truth, unfortunately wars are gruesome, gory, and
