Lin Manuel Miranda, actor, lyricist, composer, singer, and songwriter. A lengthy title, but one that is well deserved and well earned. Although there are many talented musical artists, Lin is one of the best, some might even say the best. His work is well known, appeals to a variety of people, and teaches something to those who listen to it; whether that may be a lesson about love, life, and betrayal, or whether it is about finding one’s self.
Before anything else, let me take a moment to praise my favorite composer and conductor Joe Hisaishi. Spoiling us with a surrealistic, eargasmic soundtrack I was more than content with it. To get my point across, let's look at and listen to one of the most well-known songs in the soundtrack, 'Merry Go Round of Life'. [IMG=Y9X] [C]A breathtakingly beautiful orchestral score, with a repeating theme that gives you chills. The piece initiating with long-winded adagio, it soon masterfully transitions to swift allegro.
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.
Although the films Psycho and Harold and Maude differ greatly in terms of plot, both actors use similar tactics, which in turn make their performances impressive. Anthony Perkins’ performance in Psycho remains memorable not only because of his impressive ability to display Norman as a character, but also because his personality and acting style fit the role adequately. His performance, along with the plot of the movie, incite fear within the audience. As a result, when the film was initially released, it generated great success. Similarly, Bud Cort’s performance remains memorable not only because he acts realistically, but also because he fits the role of Harold.
Rear Window The film masterpiece “Rear Window” is directed by Alfred Hitchcock and is known for its unique ability to connect to the hearts of many. The movie intrigues the audience from the opening scene to the dramatic amusement, Hitchcock’s movie is near impossible to predict and is composed of multiple plot twists and surprises. Despite being a harsh movie critic, I truly appreciated every single detail that is put forth by the Director. Unsurprisingly, Hitchcock is known for countless other amazing films such as, “Psycho”, “Vertigo”, and “North by Northwest”.
He took great pride in his radio success and ultimate film success. Welles was pleased to be the cutting edge creator of Hollywood film sound. The outstanding sound works displayed in the film Citizen Kane would not be challenged until the
Based off the book, the movie is extremely similar. However, the flaws exist. Some of the scenes became over the top and extravagant. The scene at Myrtle and Tom’s apartment seemed slightly overdone. The book never said that the party became wild and out of control, just that Nick and the others drank to the point of intoxication.
I have to convince you. Well, let’s start that. I’ve already stated twice now that this is a “Marvel Movie”. Marvel Studios is awesome! If you deny that then I can’t really convince you otherwise, since you’re probably already dead inside.
These melodies recall we generate each of the characteristics of these races, or even androids that also generate comedy. The point is that eventually emerges as the leitmotif ideal for generating a recall with the movie, people want to repeat it because you like their music or this reminds him of the same. The idea is to globalize the music to work in tandem with the film, which both complement and create the viewer to identify with it. In conclusion, Star Wars is one of the clearest examples of what may be more like a movie or even "space" opera.
The word auteur means author in French. Auteur theory means that the director is the most important person involved in the creation of film (Dixon 187). Directors have a very distinctive visual signature like how they work the camera, edit the film, and demonstrate thematic motifs. Hitchcock is nobley known to be one of the greatest auteurs of all time having strong themes and stylistic devices that makes the audience enjoy the film even more (Spoto 85). Author Neil Sinyard, in his book, The Films of Alfred Hitchcock, explained one of Hitchcock’s recurring themes of identity mistake.
“Stand up for what is right, even if you are standing alone- Suzy Kassem” is a phrase that was often posted in my classrooms when I was in grade schools. Usually the teacher’s explanation involved telling the class to stand up for people getting bullied or to not cheat on an assignment even if everyone else is cheating. In the movie High Noon, the Marshall, Will Kane, is faced with the reality that he may have to stand alone to protect a town against a killer, Frank Miller, and the killer’s gang. Giving some context to Kane’s predicament, Kane had put Frank Miller in jail, but the lawmakers up North had set him free. Frank Miller is coming back for vengeance and even though Kane was newlywed that day and is technically no longer Marshall,
From the brilliant work of the Citizen Kane (1941) with all the spotlights to his last work of classic film noir the Touch of Evil (1958). The contributions of Orson Welles (Orson Welles) on transiting the traditional Hollywood film style and developing the film noir in the 1940s is irreplaceable. The genre Film noir was well known for showing a degenerate and dark underground world. The masterpieces of Orson Welles for example the Citizen Kane(1941), The Lady from Shanghai (1948) and The Strangers (1946) all made significant contributions to the styles of American film noir during1940s.
I believe that basing the film on his life brought both advantages and disadvantages. To start off, I think the advantages of this was that Charles Foster Kane was such a recognizable character and people would be familiar with who William Randolph Hearst. That when people watched this film, the audience will go out after watching it and talk about it more, getting lots of press. But also, the disadvantage was that Hearst did not want this film to get views, so he banned/prohibited the film to be advertized and mentioned in any way. From the film not getting publicity, this led to people thinking that the film was a bad move, which probably made the views drop down.
Citizen Kane was made in 1941 (during the golden age of Hollywood). It was able to gain the attention of people when it was first made, which is due to the many techniques that were used in it, and which could rarely be found in other movies that were made during the same era. One of the most important techniques that was used several times is the Deep focus. When the camera deep focuses, a small amount of light enters through the lens, which is due to the small aperture the cinematographers use, this allows it to capture everything in the frame, and makes people able to see the whole image. Filmmakers usually use this technique when they want to show the audience an important action that could be ruined if said by words, it also allows them to show more than one action in one scene, without confusing the audience.
