This helped to add to the already-strong storyline crafted by writers Oh In-chun and Park Ji-young where it blends the fictional with the realistic. Portraying the original movie as a document of what really happened and then adapting the new movie from these events has quite a unique
The influence of expressionistic poetics of light has always been felt in Hollywood tapes, so it is not surprising that the film noir took into account the experience of expressionism. This was largely due to the arrival of a large number of German and East European directors and operators who worked in this direction: Fritz Lang, Robert Sjödmak, Billy Wilder, Franz Waxman, Otto Preminger, John Bram, Anatol Litwack, Karl Freund, Max Ophüls, John Elton, Douglas Sirk, Fred Zinnemann, William Dieterle, Max Steiner, Edgar G. Ulmer, Curtis Bernhardt, Rudolf Mate. At first glance, the influence of German expressionism, largely based on artificial studio lighting, seems incompatible with post-war realism, gravitating to rigid full-scale shooting, but the creators of films noir uniquely managed to combine in a single style, seemingly mutually exclusive elements. The best masters of the noir turned the real world into excellent scenery, using unnatural and expressionistic lighting in the filming on location. In films such as Union Station, They Live by Night, The Killers, an alarmingly bracing combination of realism and expressionism
Kylie Mawn Professor Rodais CINE 121 Midterm 4 March 2018 Question 1: Citizen Kane (Orson Welles, 1941) is a film that is well known for pushing cinematic boundaries in many ways. One commonly recognized technique in Welles’ film is deep focus photography. Deep focus photography is used in films to allow everything in a shot to be in focus at once. Typical, only specific characters or objects are in focus in any given frame in order to guide the audience’s attention in a scene, but deep focus can bring a new level of sophistication to a shot. While using deep focus photography, a cinematographer may have to rely on framing, lighting, or composition to guide an audience in a way that typically would be done by focusing on objects or characters in the foreground of a shot.
The element of lighting is a sophisticated element to a movie. It has the power to control what you see and also overwhelm you when it needs to. During my discovery of this movie, I found that colors told the story just as much as the dialogue. It just goes to show that the most significant films cover all the ends of telling a story through the medium of film. Now the fun part, the analyst of The Shawshank Redemption’s use of light and color in painting the picture of its theme of hope.
As many events occur throughout the novel, the reader is able to understand a first-hand understanding of a historical period of time, while also gaining the emotions and logistics of consequential personal experiences. Therefore, from these experiences the reader may achieve a greater understanding of history itself which would not have been possible without the rhetorical devices found inside literature and the truth of Cora’s struggles which were analogous to other slaves of the time, may never have received the general comprehension that it
Citizen Kane is directed, produced by and stars Orson Welles and was made in 1941. Citizen Kane does not come under one specific film genre but falls under the heading of several interesting genres, which include biography, narrative, detective and news-paper reporter genre. ‘Film Noir’ is also associated with Citizen Kane as it has many genres but also a very specific style that differs from the classical norm of Hollywood movies. This movie became extremely significant for its time and changed the face of film history. Orson Welles brought about a new way of filming with his use of low angle shots, three point lighting, transition shots and deep focus.
Three points that prove this are: the major plot change due to the transition from paper to screen, the addition of more themes and ideas rather than just horror, and the many more characters that were added and removed in the story to aid in the new plot. The most significant thing about this film as an adaptation of this story is its ability to still draw itself back to the Poe's tale at the end of the film, even though it had a very different way of getting there. This is significant because some films tend to change the plot and not tie itself back to the original work in anyway in order to become its own tale. In conclusion, this film is very different from its original work but still manages to reign itself in to make it one story about a dangerous

The assertion that Tim Burton uses cinematic techniques to control the mood of the scene comes close to identifying a stylistic trait, though it is still fairly general. Extensive use of textual evidence of the effect of cinematic techniques from multiple films is a clear strength of this essay. Well-developed elaboration of the textual evidence and especially sophisticated transitional devices puts this exemplar firmly in the Exemplary proficiency band. The commentary enhances the specific evidence provided and is wide-ranging and insightful, showing a deep understanding of cinematic techniques and how they create specific effects in mood and atmosphere. The last paragraph brings the analysis to a satisfying and perceptive conclusion by returning to the central concept that Burton’s style is characterized by a desire to “control the audiences’ emotions, and twist the mood of the scene.” This control of the essay through organization and progression of ideas is supplemented by the precise use of cinematic vocabulary and generally sophisticated sentence structure and
This literary narrative is centered on an epic journey that utilizes literary devices to enhance the complexity and understanding in the story. Flashbacks are a great story telling device mostly used in narratives, such as the epic. It's almost a hand and glove fit in this story while adding depth to the story and a more intricate background. Flashbacks also draw the reader in and make story more interesting, and provide a better overall understanding of what's taking place as it takes you back in time. In “Gilgamesh” the example of a flashback that is used is the Story of the Flood.
