The sharp lines of his cheeks sent me straight to his color-changing hazel eyes bursting currently with a bluish-green hue and giving me a long, very hungry, gaze. Interesting. Although my prejudice about him being my forced husband never prevented me from noticing his physical attributes, I continuously lied to myself about his perfections. His perfect eyes and hair and body were just another reminder of the Mother Country and my own imprisonment in this over perfected shithole. Now, sitting close, observing his stare, I was starting to discover why all the girls chatted about the mysterious and darkly handsome Charles Stone.
In Double Indemnity, Walter Neff, an insurance salesman, perfectly fits the role of the anti-hero seen in many film noirs. In Double Indemnity, Walter Neff expresses the theory of Sigmund Freud through his internal conflict between the id, ego, and superego, eventually allowing his id to override all psychological components and succumb to his want for sexual pleasure with Phyllis Dietrichson. Walter Neff perfectly symbolizes
“We have to chant power words’ to attract something into the room” “Like, Josh Whitton is gorgeous, Josh Whitton’s a spunk” said Maeve. Bianca covered her mouth to hide her smile. “I would so handle attracting him into the room”
The use of musical instruments supplements well the film in bringing out the suffering of Millions of Jews. Violin instrument brings a sober beginning, but sad and melancholic feeling creeps in, hearts are pierced, the woodwind instrument, Oboe stitches it, brings a mixed orchestra feeling, soothing feeling. The director interlude successfully scenes from ‘Good German ' who rescues Jews from being assassinated by the Nazis to Evil Nazi revolutionist who has brought Jews into endless suffering, torture, and murder. Musical Instrumental sends a sharp chill through spines, the earthy and authentic sounds of violin gives life to the storyline, it connects the viewers to the events, makes everyone cry at the end. Itzhak and John William have managed to create a sound effect, which is completely neutral, undoubtedly, suitable to a timeframe of the film; it has reflected the suffering the Jews endured during Nazi revolution.
Their popularity is due to their "embrace (of) all those flagrant films, from splatter flicks to hardcore porn, whose crucial social function is to overstep the limits of established taste” (p,11). In addition, midnight cinema is closely connected with the camp style “the essence of Camp is its love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration”
-“I found god in myself & I loved her/ I loved her fiercely”(63) This quote is so strong because it means so much because people would think she found like God but she was symbolizing how she found herself, and she loved her. I find it even stronger because the lady in red was always looking for love in all the wrong places, but she had to learn to love herself before she could allow herself to love someone else. 2.
Sunset Boulevard is a classic black comedy/drama, the most acclaimed, but darkest film noir story about Hollywood and what happens behind the scenes written by Billy Wilder. It shows the true deceitfulness, emptiness, the price of fame, greed, narcissism, and ambition it really takes to be an actor or actress during the 1950’s in Hollywood. Norma Desmond was one of the main characters and she showed viewers how easily they can perceive their characters on screen for their real life and get them twisted. In the 1950’s fans of the film wanted the actors to be just as perfect as they appeared on screen. The classic, tragic film was highly regarded at its time, honored with eleven Academy Award nominations and the recipient of three Oscars: Best
It is a thriller, black comedy, drama, crime and neo-noir film written by the Coen Brothers in 1996. In this movie, all the characters are obsessed with money; for instance, Jerry is a pathetic loser who never stops improvising solutions in order to escape from the impasses he finds himself blocked by. He never stops bursting with activity, and I think that that almost makes him admirable. The only thing that attracted me after watching the movie was the music, and after researching, I noticed that the music director Carter Burwell screens the film all the way through then plays a little bit of what he has in mind for the Coen Brothers on the synthesizer to give them an idea of what he wants to create for the movie. I also noticed that Carter plays parts of the music on the piano for the Coens, before planning the orchestration, so that they would connect them with certain sequences of the film.
“My name is Dalton,” he began with a grin. Continuously I responded with a mutter, “Semheralda,”, taken aback by both his perplexing characteristics and beautiful voice in conjunction with his handsome features. “What was that?” he inquired, grinning with a large, shiny pearly smile that contained all the light in the universe. “I’m Semheralda.” As I spoke, I felt his eyes gazing upon me, taking in my initial appearance and associating it with his own experience. “Well it’s a pleasure to acquaint myself with someone of your immense beauty.” His way with words exasperated me.
Iago admits that he has no proof of Othello’s crime against him, but he still states it as a reason for his hatred. Iago contains too much hatred to be led by a near suspicion which causes the audience to believe that this reason has no truth behind it, and it appears as an excuse. Shakespeare continues to craft the mystery behind Iago’s motives when Iago describes Othello as a man with “constant loving noble nature/ and he dare think hell prove to Desdemona/ a most dear husband” (II, I, 214-216). Iago appears to think of Othello as an incredible man, but he still wants to cause his ultimate downfall. By Shakespeare showing Iago’s other feelings towards Othello it causes the audience to believe Iago’s other
