The Auteur Theory-Intro Part Considering the collaborative process of filmmaking, especially nowadays in most film production, the concept of there being a singular creative supervisor is debatable. Nonetheless one cannot deny the existence of directional motifs and instances of thematic and stylistic elements within the work of filmmakers like Tim Burton and Alfred Hitchcock. These directors indicate that within traditions and genres lies the overall definition of an auteur: a director whose inventive traits are listed throughout his/her work like a signature. Auteurism rose to the surface in the 1950s French New Wave criticism as an appraisal of Hollywood directors who were ready to avoid the rules of the studio system and create films that were distinctively their own. Before this markable period, film authors were generally self-directing with open stylistic aspirations and full management over their films.
Tim Burton’s style is mysterious, creepy and exciting. In Tim Burton’s movie Edward Scissorhands, the main character Edward, is a mysterious and creepy person. Edward doesn’t understand what it’s like to be around people because all his life he lived alone in a castle, and had no clue idea how to socialize since his creator died and didn’t teach Edward much about the world. Burton uses an invigorating way to express his characters, because they are very diverse, and since they are diverse, it excites people to learn more about these specific characters he creates, such as Edward. The way Burton introduces these characters can intrigue many people to watch his movies.
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
Desperate times call for desperate measures. In Flannery O’Connor’s short story, “A Good Man is Hard to Find”, the Misfit is depicted as a violent criminal who has escaped from the federal penitentiary. At first, the Misfit appears to be compassionate towards the grandmother, but when the grandmother identifies the Misfit as the escaped criminal, the Misfit becomes volatile and eventually violent towards the family. Although many would assume that the Misfit is psychotic, he opts to kill the family in order to save himself from being put back in the federal penitentiary. In order to comprehend the thesis, it is essential that one understand the psychological makeup of the Misfit.
The reality of the characters of the film changes throughout the entire storyline. Both Marc and Agnès have questionable realities. Just like the Nighthawks painting, there is not a clear story. Everything must be inferred from the audience’s perspective. Carrère created the film so the audience struggles to comprehend his way of creating
During the Great Depression money and jobs were a difficult thing to attain, instead, what Frank Lucas does is steal money and pursue immoral acts to achieve his desires. This ties in with Frank Lucas in the film because he does corruptive actions, like the one’s in this quote, that prove his character becomes destroyed by immorality. It is evident that Gatsby and Lucas great aspirations destruct each of the character’s nature. It is evident that Gatsby’s emotional conscious is demolished because he does not care that he is enacting illegal work for his dream. Tom accuses him of pursuing his unlawful acts and from Gatsby’s reply he shows no guilt.
In addition to the three thieves, Professor Quirrell and Voldemort had a very similar problem with wanting to obtain the stone. Voldemort made many promises to Quirrell and deceived him to join him and his evil army, but Voldemort was driven by his own greed for the stone, and Quirrell was sent to his death during his fight with Harry; after he spent months lying to his fellow professors and his students about his true intentions. He told Harry, “There is no good or bad, only power and those too weak to seek it” (Rowling). This shows that he truly enthralled himself in Voldemort’s ideas and
Without knowing it Juan ends up getting sabotaged by the machine instead of him sabotaging the machine. Juan became addicted to his work in the censorship. This began to reflect on his normal life as well not only in the censorship office. The author describes “Soon his work became so absorbing that his noble mission blurred in his mind.”(page 176, paragraph 4). Juan was so brainwashed by the government (the censorship) that he began to lose sight of his mission.
He doesn’t remember that he killed his father and that’s why he was sent to prison. Even though he doesn’t remember committing the crime, he still committed a crime. This does not give him a reason to go kill innocent people and become a murderer. That’s why I am not satisfied with his explanation to why he kills. The Misfit introduced briefly at the beginning of the story and is seen as an unrealistic character and too many as a lie from the grandmother to change the family plan.
Evil over takes the heart and emotions of the younger man. This makes him commit an act of pure evil, taking the life of another human. Evil lurks throughout the whole story. It slowly drives the man crazy, making him think unration. Nothing good could come from evil committed.
