So much so, that the film begins to feel bloated and contrived before the second act even starts. This is ironic because another Coen Brothers’ film, The Big Lebowski, successfully lampooned convoluted and contrived films. ‘Hail, Caesar!‘, to an extent, has many sub-plots that either don’t come to a resolution or have an off-screen payoff because the cast is so large and the Coens had a gargantuan checklist of things they wanted to add. I wanted to know if Ralph Fiennes ever got his film made and how it was received, I wanted to know if Alden Ehrenreich’s date towards the end of the movie ever got a follow-up etc. In a sense, 'Hail, Caesar ' felt like a film that was baiting for nonexistent tenuous
I thought that all of the Reverends were going to be in their 40’s - 50’s, but the movie makes them look old, like grandpa old. It kinda disappoints me when i 'm reading or book or a play then i go watch the movie and the characters are completely different. Then it just makes me think of the story differently. Many things can play a factor in changing a story by making it into a movie or a play, and The Crucible shows this exactly. Little factors can play a huge role in making a story feel different.

(Green 54)" Lastly, "He clenched his jaw and reared back. (Green 150)" Those are just some examples about how almost every chapter ends before it switches to the next character making you want to keep reading and find out what happens. He also put in a lot of very action packed suspenseful scenes in the rising action and climax. Then, the resolution and climax all happened very quickly in the last chapter with Sam being picked into the USC Elite
Instead of being in tune with their studies, the class is surfing the internet for the latest gossip. Snyder mentioned that if he had not banned laptops and smartphones
His stories are simple and he tends to give away the ending at the beginning of the film, which intrigues you to find out more about what had taken place. For example Romeo and Juliet starts with a news flash on a television screen describing city brawls that have taken place and later in the film there are more fights that occurs. Strictly ballroom starts off with Scott dancing his own steps which is the result of the story and The Great Gatsby starts off with youngish narrator, apprentice bond trader Nick Carraway, in rehab, brought about by the story Luhrmann illustrates throughout the film. All of Baz Luhrmanns films are set in the closed, confined, isolated little worlds. Strictly ballroom is set in the isolated, specialized world of ballroom dancing, and nearly the entire film is shot in either the ballroom or the dance studio.
Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s “In A Year of 13 Moons” was yet another risk taking film to produce and, as an audience member, watch. The film was released in 1978 so the fact that it has a protagonist, who was a cross dresser, really set this film apart. Usually films with this theme will make it very comedic, however Fassbinder uses lots of visual to express the emotion, and takes audience members on this journey to look deep into the characters. There were one scene when the character Erwin, played by Volker Spengler, was giving dialogue however while walking through a slaughterhouse. This scene was hard to watch but in fact was needed because what he was saying had a connection to every moment in the slaughterhouse.
The audience is gripped by the growing tension. They are lifted out of their daily realities, and lost for those hours, within the movie.

Technology has made us see the world at a different angle. Most children now play xbox for hours on end shooting zombies, stealing cars and talking to people online through a live account instead of enjoying the outdoors and playing in the mud and adults are just as guilty. We spend countless hours scrolling through Facebook or Twitter liking everything we see from coworkers or family and hardly look up to see the world as it is. Technology is nice, we can learn things quickly about worldwide events and news taking place or being able to video chat long distance family members but it has become a
Dylan Mr. Woodard Film Studies – A 24th, September 2014 Circular Narrative A circular narrative is a narrative that has certain plot points repeating throughout the film; this is a technique that a lot of writers and directors use, risking a lot of money. Circular narrative rarely makes it into mainstream movies and this probably happens because it doesn’t often fit neatly into the sort of plot Hollywood is used to producing. In these circular narrative films the end of the movie usually connects right back to the start of the movie making an endless loop of a movie. Most of the time, people fail to grasp the meaning of the films due to the movies’ complexity and we can see these demonstrations in a variety of modern films such as Groundhog
