The famous science-fiction film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, directed by the stalwart filmmaker, Stanley Kubrick, can be described as one of the seminal works ever in the history of world cinema. The film succeeds in leaving a very lasting effect on the minds of the audience with its sheer quintessence of content and aesthetic portrayal on the screen. An introspective analysis of the contextual work can make one understand how the filmmaker exudes his cinematic prowess via the use of impressive cinematic techniques that simply catapult the affective appeal of the narrative. What is extremely intriguing is the fact that the entire narrative is intertwined in spite of the episodic nature of the various stories. These stories come together to construct
The movie shows this message through visuals, with the help of design principles that accentuates the purpose. The fact that it does not pinpoint a particular time of history or event, and instead, focuses more on the futuristic and technologically advanced capitalism and importance of reality television is so that it bring surface more of what will happen in the future, more than just what happened before. It raises awareness on what is going on in the world, driving them to do something about it. This shows me how much communication is utmost crucial in the process of making my final product, and what factors will aid the deliverance of my ideas. ‘The Hunger Games’ series talks about world war and other social problems through the protagonist as the emblem, without any of the ideas obscured in any way.
Today, globally fans, film critics, and philosophy teachers have praised the film for its example on “defining what it means to be human (and) the increasingly dilemma faced by contemporary society, that is, the most vital question confronting us is how to maintain our humanity in the face of overwhelming technologies that tend to dehumanize us“ (Huffingtonpost). A sobering thought, considering how the public today is thoroughly inundated with advance technology that is suppose to bring us closer together, but has instead produced a more detached society with short attention
It proposes a utopian future where artificial intelligent beings know and understand us better than other human beings and even ourselves and that with the help of algorithms, these devices can make our lives better. This idea of an artificially intelligent operating system being the perfect companion is further emphasized by the juxtaposition against flawed human companions. This places unnecessary pressure on the characters in the film to live up to
The vision of Billy Ray was very well put together, followed by powerful performances and detailed set designs. The visuals draw us in enough to take us on a thrilling ride, and you’ll be holding on to your seat. Billy Ray develops the characters, and by the end of the film we are able to solve several mysteries, sub-texts and plots — even though he’s throwing us for a spin with his flashbacks, which, I’ve been told in film school, should not be used because they can be very confusing to the audience. Billy Ray uses this confusion to his advantage in keeping us interested in trying to solve the mystery. We see justice being served, and the best performance of good cop-bad cop I’ve ever
Mercutio’s grand entrance is a great example of how Baz Luhrmann expresses and interprets characters as well as how he modernizes the movie through different scenes like this.This movie is good for adults as well as teens to see. I would not recommend this movie to younger children just because of some of shakespeare 's language used throughout the movie may not be understandable to them. But overall people should see this film because it’s great characters and overall modernization of
There is a precise distinction between the two concepts. Considering the criticism of American Underground, New German Cinema and New Wave, Dogma can be considered as a fake. However, considering from the perspective of its makers, Dogma is a dynamic movement. The movies of Steven Spielberg held over the cinema as an auteur kick and became an initiation of American Cinema movies that were driven by special effects. This was a nonstop success of Spielberg’s vision in terms of economic policy and gave rise to a novel mode of heightened cinema.
The presence of it in the main character of a popular film draws attention to the issue, and if anything, increases overall awareness of psychological disorders due to the staggering popularity of movies. The downside is that the way in which these disorders are portrayed in film often exaggerates them, and rarely shows any sort of treatment or resolve for the characters who have the disorders. This popular culture portrayal can make it seem as if there is no way to get help, when there are so many treatments that could benefit the individual. It should be more important to the film directors to include more references to treatment or to consequences should the disorder not go untreated. Additionally, the more realistic the portrayal of the disorder is, the more it can grab people’s attention.
But while all the acting is memorable, one always thinks first and mostly of Miss Swanson, of her manifestation of consuming pride, her forlorn despair, and a truly magnificent impersonation of Charlie Chaplin. Sunset Boulevard is a great motion picture, marred only slightly by the fact that the authors permit Joe Gillis to take us into the story of his life after his bullet-ridden body is lifted out of Norma Desmond 's swimming pool. That is a device completely unworthy of Brackett and Wilder, but happily it does not interfere with the success of Sunset
To the unknown eye, Hitchcock has carefully and skillfully used Mise-en-scene to his advantage, causing the audience to feel fear and a sense of caution towards the character of Norman Bates. It isn’t until we reflect back on the scene and notice how intelligently Hitchcock uses the positioning of props and the characters, lighting, camera angle and staging, that we notice how he has added meaning to his characters but has also to the film, creating suspense and fear from one scene to the end of the film. Ultimately proving the point that Hitchcock “the master of suspense” uses Mise-en-scene to not only help make a brilliant film but also uses it as his disposal to add meaning in his
