For example, in Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, Burton uses side lighting on the spies meeting about his factory to show them as evil and calculating. He does this in order to have the audience mistrust and dislike the spies as Wonka does, forming a connection between their emotions. Burton also uses low lighting in his films to manipulate the audience’s perspective. In Edward Scissorhands, Edward’s flashbacks all have low key lighting to make them seem melancholy and slightly sinister. Burton uses these flashbacks to have the audience understand why Edward acts certain ways or does certain things, relating his current life to what had happened to him in the past.

To get love you must win another’s affection, while others try to woo them. Anacreaon also personifies love, “Love with the golden hair points to a girl.” He is playing a game of catch with love itself. Like a baby shooting arrows, he is throwing a ball at his victim. Love is fanciful and unpredictable; one never knows where the ball will bounce. Unlike in An Ephesian Story, love is not a serious issue one should spend time worrying about, but something fun and light.
In a dialogue with alternating camera angles in a close up we can clearly see the emotion of the two arguing about Richthofen’s plan to paint the planes in red, what would make them easier to spot. But the Baron has other plans as he states: “I don’t want them to be surprised. I want them to be scared”. This is an example for Richthofen’s character, who is very impulsive and has his own set of beliefs. As we learn later in the scene by general Hoeppner who acknowledges that the coloring planes red is against army regulations.
Anderson uses visual art to enhance his storytelling past writing with deliberate color schemes to create a pleasing composition that evokes an emotion or gives more insight into the characters. He visually narrates the story with book chapters and puzzle board titles as well as keeps that characters in the same costume throughout most of the film to represent the characters are stuck in the past.

For example, while waiting in the emergency room after Richie attempts suicide the mother is focused more on the fact that she just realized Margot is a smoker. Lastly, the film shows an unconventional love story of incest between Richie and his adopted sister

According to the arousal theory of motivation, humans are motivated to attain a certain level of arousal or stimulation, either mental or physical. It is safe to say that Ralston required even more stimulation than the average person.
