However, what separates “Rear Window” from Hitchcock’s other films is its unique use of camera angles to show every suspenseful moment within the film. The usage of lights is also very important in creating many of the visual effects within this movie. Lastly, the music serves as a very effective tool in creating alternative feelings of dramatic emotion. Within my evaluation you will see and
This is best done by comparing two of his films, namely, Romeo and Juliette and The Great Gatsby. Although both these films have a large variety of common factors, such as the spectacular parties, the use of music and symbolism, it is how these techniques are executed that show us how he has evolved as a director. One technique that Baz Luhrmann has mastered is his ability to show the importance of a specific idea. This is clearly seen in his films like Romeo and Juliette, where he emphasized on the importance of violence by using guns rather than swords, he went even further in The Great Gatsby where he made Gatsby’s parties wild and crazy, not something that actually happened in the time when Gatsby is
After watching The 39 Steps (1935), I realized that Alfred Hitchcock really did have a talent for establishing suspense through films. Even though suspense was the primary focus, Hitchcock managed to effectively and intelligently mix humor, romance, and thriller. He uses a variety of techniques to convey these feelings to the audience. According, to some of his interviews with Francois Truffaut, Hitchcock mentions his love for The 39 Steps, specifically about the techniques he uses to create a bewitching experience throughout the film. In this film, he uses a variety of themes that he continued to constantly use throughout his later films.
Tim Burton is an American film director that many people know of. He has directed many movies that all have similar stuff in common, like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Edward Scissorhands, both very well known movies. His movies are dark, mysterious and sometimes even a little creepy. Burton uses music, light, and framing to help the audience understand the current mood of the scene better. Music can be used to bring the audience feel what the character in the movie would be feeling to cause you to become more involved, and that’s exactly what Burton does in his movies.
The composer of the movie, Bernard Hermann was majorly popular for operating with Hitchcock had given the wonderful music to the movie. Nevertheless, the movie continues to be most noticeably the effort of Orson Welles, an authentic hallway comprising of mirrors representing the grand artist's fears, obsessions, and dreams. “Citizen Kane” is not merely the one among the grand effort of the cinema, although it is one among the grand artistic constructions of the century. (Donnelly) (IMDb) “Citizen Kane” was originated from the unusual and the real screenplay from Herman J. Mankiewicz, the screenwriter from America, together with principle director, actor, and the producer Orson Welles, with extra unaccredited devotions from Mollie Kent, Roger Q. Denny, and John Houseman. The works of these individuals were combined as a whole due to their proficiency in their work.
GENRE/ STYLE ASSIGNMENT Action movies are more appealing to certain demographic distributions. Bourne Ultimatum is ideally based on fantasy, and the audiences are tipped to identify with the unbelievably capable and original actor, and it seems so realistic that it only enhances the same fantasy. Even though Pamela Landy and Nicky Parsons are represented as the guardian of morals in the movie, this genre almost invariably represents females as not powerful. Paul Greengrass, the director, enjoys the interpretive shots that seem to overwhelm the composition. Since the composition doesn’t have to be perfect, the interior lightings can be somewhat green as opposed to being fluorescent.
Noir is not absolute, the beauty of this style is its vulnerability to variation, which is why Michael Curtiz’s Classic Casablanca is film noir. Examining Casablanca by just looking at its visual style, it is obvious it has noir elements to it. In Noir, the look is often dark, gritty, and utilizes many shadows. In scenes that take place in Rick’s Café, these things are apparent. There are shadows on the wall, along with the contrast of shadows on the character’s faces and clothing.
His stylistic trademarks include the use of camera movement that mimics a person 's gaze, indulging viewers to engage in a form of forceful voyeurism. In addition to these dark complexities, the monochrome reel added to the crisp functionality rendering a slew of black and white films that refined the suspense and thriller genres in its entirety. In addition, he framed shots to accentuate antipathy, anxiety, fear, or empathy, and used intuitive forms of film editing. Many of his best films incorporate the elegant simplicity of black & white. From the early joys of The 39 Steps and The Lady Vanishes, through the taut mid-period suspense thrillers such as Spellbound, Shadow of a Doubt and Strangers on a Train, to the phenomenal success of the slasher classic-Psycho, the Hitch proves that monochrome is a magnificent thing.
Pulp Fiction is a stylistically provocative film designed to amuse and impress the most well-versed film connoisseurs. Through allusion, Quentin Tarantino boasts his wide array of trivia knowledge regarding pop culture and the cinematic universe. Tarantino frequently references John Travolta’s acting career by drawing connections to Grease and Saturday Night Fever. He also characterizes Butch through an association with Terry Malloy from On the Waterfront. However, these allusions are not simply braggadocious for they affect one’s overall viewing experience.
Alfred Hitchcock’s film Vertigo (1958) was voted the “best film ever made” by the 2012 British Film Institute, and for good reason. The plot is elaborate and intriguing and the cinematography is legendary. On top of this, the characters, like good characters should, all have their own needs and wants that are evident in the film. The needs of these characters affect each other and they affect the story and they all follow one common theme: control. Our protagonist, John “Scottie” Ferguson’s wants and needs differ greatly throughout the film, but his only constant is his yearning to get over his acrophobia, or fear of heights.
