The opening scene is of Jim Gallien finding Chris on the side of the road and then giving him a ride to Chris’s destination.
2 / 12 Although the novel and film differ slightly in regards to the plot the same cinematic techniques are used. I will firstly discuss the cinematic techniques used in the Bertoluccis film which has made the film all the more intriguing such as style, lighting, flash backs, camera angles........................ 3 / 12 Structure and the language of literature and cinema Il Conformista is narrated in a flowery style, where Bertolucci expresses his most inner thoughts mostly through the means of mood and visuals Like the tremendous fascist architecture constructions and the workplaces of authority that contain towering corridors that make visitors seem completely insignificant. The cinematic technique that I particularly thought brought the film to life was Bertoluccis use of flashbacks. They add

In the beginning of each film burton uses extremely wide camera shots to capture the world his characters are living in. in Edward Scissorhands Tim contrasts this huge dark mountain to the bright energetic suburbs, while in Charlie and the Chocolate factory Tim focuses on the gloomy town that Charlie resides in. As burtons films continue he brings in each character at an eye level shot, close up, or extreme close up of just their face. This type of shot establishes the importance of each character. Burton continues each film to insert the watcher into the characters perspective as if you’re sitting at the table with Edward or looking up at Willy Wonka just as Charlie would.
Baz Luhrmann’s films are known their ability to make a watcher feel as if they are part of the show. Between his use of camera angles, shots and the use of a narrator, it’s no wonder he is able to keep viewers on the edge of their seat. But how does Baz Luhrmann pull off this spectacular feat of his? This is probably explained best by referring to Baz Luhrmann’s films and how he himself has evolved as a director. This is best done by comparing two of his films, namely, Romeo and Juliette and The Great Gatsby.
Being yourself is better even though people don’t like you. In the end, the poem “Identity” by Julio Noboa Polanco talks about how it’s good to be unique, to be yourself. Julio Noboa Polanco uses the literary devices of alliteration, simile, and repetition. I think the message of the poem reflects certain things that happen in life. Like people can be someone but not
In this criticism the main question is, is the “beauty-truth identification a consistent, meaningful conclusion to the poem” (Shokoff)? Or are “those who believe that Keats is, in his greatest poetry, less yearning after an ideal than recognizing and affirming the value of the real world in which he and we all live” (Shokoff)? Certainly this is a question that is difficult to answer, but I agree with this critic that the meaning of the poem’s final two lines are questionable. Once again, the identification and symbolism of the urn is involved. Keats states that “’Beauty is truth, truth beauty/ —that is all/ Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know’”(Keats 50).
However, there are times when nature and imagination are in conflict with each other; for example, when imagination acts as an illusion, and distracts us from confronting the issue. Imagination is one of the most prominent aspects of Romantic poetry. Wordsworth defines imagination as “the means of deep insight and sympathy, the power to conceive and express images removed from normal objective reality”. Imagination is a way of seeing the world through a different lens. Imagination could be a different way of seeing the world as it
Modern poetry is in open form and free verse. It is pessimistic in tone, portraying loss in faith and psychological struggle which is quite different from the fixed forms and meters of traditional poetry. Secondly, modern poetry is fragmented in nature, containing juxtaposition, inter-textuality and allusion. It has no proper beginning, middle or end. Thirdly, modern poetry is predominantly intellectual in its appeal, rather than emotive.
