He describes Mary screaming, “ as though infected,” while the girls cower, “as though” they had been cursed. (118) These similes paint a detailed picture of the scene, intensifying the craziness and depicting the mass hysteria in the courtroom. Mary, due to Miller’s directing, embodies the sense of fear driving the panic of the scene. She sustains the wildness of all previous allegations through her exclamation that John Proctor is, “the Devil’s man.”(118) Miller uses Mary’s accusation to add drama, as well as a new dimension of suspicion, to the situation. All of these powerful emotions combine to reach a point of utter hysteria.
This implies everything Jack Crawford said how manipulative, powerful and evil he was. By having a shot like this, we as an audience start to get this uneasy feeling about him. Then this shot is followed by multiple close up shots between Hannibal Lector and Clarice. As we see in the shot, Hannibal Lector begins to show how manipulative and dominating he can be. When we see Clarice, we see the camera at a higher angle to show that she is inferior to him and vulnerable.
Which has, in turn, given female actors or characters the ability to outgrow such previous stereotypes that were once typically portrayed in horror films. For instance, generally in movies as Friday the 13th, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, American Psycho and others alike, the killer or bad “guy,” ironically was far too purposefully male, powerful, and merciless. The reason for
Not to mention, there is a scene where Patsey gets a brutal beating by Epps on her back and you can see the blood jump off her skin. It is definitely a very graphic scene, but it crosscuts from Epps thrashing her, and back to Patsey. When you watch Epps hitting her, in the blurred background you are able to see the other slaves witness this tragedy and hear Patsey screaming and crying. This particular scene hits you straight in the gut and has you speechless. 12 Years a Slave is a memoir of Solomon Northup filmed with passion and conviction giving the viewer heartache and an addition to the many other perspectives that we already know of slavery, another lingering thought of how ghastly the method of slavery really was is added to our

It was a film that changed the history of cinema, introducing a very talented filmmaker and several acting legends in the telling of a story of a Sicilian Crime Family. The most memorable scene in the film is the opening scene of the movie which is also my choice of scene to elaborate on mise-en-scene.
The true violence of the film is captured within the very first few scenes, with there being a battle at the opening of the movie. With Macbeth now entering the horrific battlefield, with bodies and blood all over the surrounding scene, Macbeth continues to rush as he takes out multiple enemies in a very violent manner. This violent action of warfare in Macbeth can be comparable to other movies that used similar effects to really show the violence in the scenes. With ideas of similarities to other warfare films New York Times gives the comparison stating “ Similarly to what Steven Spielberg did in “Saving Private Ryan” (and the Wachowskis did in “The Matrix”), Mr. Kurzel periodically slows down the action, allowing every drop of blood and bit of mud to linger” (Dargis 1). just as the battles were violent the murders committed through the film could be even worse.
Gun is not the only thing that represents the violence in the novel. As Cormac McCarthy has depicted characters masterfully in his novel, the signs representing of violence can be found on some of the characters of the road; with no needed explanation such as a Roadrat "He dove and grabbed the boy and rolled and came up holding him against his chest with the knife at his throat. The man had already dropped to the ground and he swung with him and leveled the pistol and fired from a two-handed position balanced on both knees at a distance of six feet. The man fell back instantly and lay with blood bubbling from the hole in his forehead." (McCarthy,2006, 34).
The third paragraph includes crucial details that shifts Dillard’s experience with the show onto her audience. She begins with the inversion, “I saw from the ground a dozen stunt pilots;” used in order to upset the pattern of reading the audience is accustomed to. By creating the inversion, the audience is forced to read slower, and therefore think about the sentence longer. In the same paragraph, Dillard also creates a long sentence that uses multiple semicolons. She writes, “They...straightened out; they did barrel rolls, and straightened out;” in order to represent how continues and fast paced Rahm’s performance was.
The use of monologues is the primary device employed for this purpose, allowing the audience an insight into the struggles of the mothers anguish experience in the war, “Worried and waited. Waited and agitated.” Evident in the monologues are other techniques, one of which is the multimedia backdrops which added extra characters and exploration of a variety of points of views to the story. For example, using a multimedia background additionally added to the engagement of the audience in the themes and messages of war’s effect on families. The use of a spotlight on stage, cleverly hidden in the place of a coat hanger, lit up the actors facial expressions and recreated for the audience the atmosphere of war through transporting the audience to a specific time and place. The production incorporated the use of sound such as bagpipes, door knocks, boat horns, clapping from crowd, beagles and war sounds to allow the audience to become engaged in the more realistic sounds of wartime.
