In order to be seen as an auteur, a vision needs to be seen in more than a few films. As Caughie clarifies, an auteur director’s films are “likely to be the expression of their individual personality. This personality can be traced in a thematic or stylistic consistency over all or most the director’s films”. What Caughie states here is that auteur directors have personal styles and themes that can be identified through analyzing the form of their films. A director’s films need to be persistent in this sense and their
Traffaut scenary choice was intended for Antonie since he was always isolated in Paris but now he has finally found the freedom to discover himself. Hitchcock used the setting and characters actions to produce a horror genre movie. These two filmmakers produced unique movies, which follows the Auteur Theory. A lot of filmmakers have interepreted the auteur theory is based on the scripts in which the director chooses to make. Its does not matter whether a film director writes his own movie, because these film will illustrate the film makers visions through the creative choices that they make in their
Auteur theory is an important mode of film criticism that indicates the extent of the director’s involvement in the final output of the film. As it has been previously mentioned, Spike Lee’s films express certain notions about race that emerge from his personal viewpoint as well as from his political and aesthetic beliefs. The focal point of this chapter is the auteur theory and its relativity to Spike Lee. In order to prove the connection between the theory and his works, it is necessary to refer to Lee’s biography, since both his background and distinguishable personality have contributed to his technical skills as well as to his unique style as a film director. The particular chapter will also include the synopsis as well as the technical analysis of each film correspondingly.
Tourneur makes great use of it throughout the entirely at-night San Francisco sequence, enhancing danger, suspense, and dread at every turn. But one of the most important uses of shadows comes towards the end of the film, when Ann meets up with Jeff in a forest at night. Purely based on the number of shadows, this scene wins. Tree trunks, branches, and twigs draw endless lines across the bodies of both actors. It’s beautifully shot, but significantly, it’s the only time Ann is ever truly enveloped in shadows.
The Godfather series has always counted on Gordan Willis for its cinematography. He deliberately darkens Marlon Brando’s eyes (Vito Corleone) while lighting up the rest of his face. He does this by lighting his face from above which creates high contrasting shadows over his eyes which make us view him as an enigmatic man. This helps us to discern the personality of the Don, gives us an insight into his sinister and manipulative ways. The use of contrast and the play with light and darkness is fascinating.
Moreover, it is also used to convey many themes such as unreliability of appearances, and the sacrificial role of women in a patriarchal society. Throughout the play, light and color connotes Nora’s positive mental state, being a pure, innocent and typical woman in the 19th century, with darkness representing Nora’s true self. Its uses highlights Nora’s journey as she questions her position within the society that she’s living in, as well as the gender role that she must fit in. Ibsen clearly emphasizes on Nora’s struggle as she undergoes a change in
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. He changed media for the better by his own unique creations of film, in which many people have enjoyed. He sends a message to his viewers to not judge someone by their appearance. His universe is quite appealing than scary, although he uses strange characters to get his point across.
Within the play, the protagonist and hero of the story, Nora, reveals the theme of women’s role in society through her change in character and action of leaving her family, and the theme of marriage through her love for her husband. An archetypal hero is usually defined as having the characteristics such as unusual circumstances of birth, having supernatural help, or even a journey where they have to prove themselves. However, in this particular story, the protagonist doesn’t necessarily fit the role of an archetypal hero and leans more towards a transcendental hero. This type of heroic archetype is defined as a hero of tragedy whose fatal flaw brings about his downfall but not before some kind of transforming realization or wisdom. Nora fits this description given her secret about the
The greatest directors always have some type of style or theme that the audience recognizes. One of these great directors is Tim Burton. Tim Burton’s films usually focus on outsiders who basically are trying to fit in the crazy world around them. Tim Burton’s films were influenced by Edgar Allen Poe, Dr. Seuss, and Walt Disney, his films are characterized by terrorizing and dark. You can clearly see things in his films Edward Scissor Hands, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Alice and Wonderland, that these outsiders are scared of change.
(We need something to fill in here). Then after that part, at the end of the movie we find what happened and i accidentally gave it to my grandma for Christmas. (WE NEED TO ADD WAY MORE SOON) Characters: Nolan - Kevin Oswald = Nerd/Chemist Geeky ass clothes, glasses, not too stereotypical tho the look has to be just enough to show that he’s a nerd but is kinda the plug too so he’s respected. He is very smart when he talks, knows chemistry to an extent, but doesn't typically do well with violence. We become friends with him early in the movie and figure out he can cook our shit.
