He put forward a theory of the creation of montage that the basic structure of the film was not from authentic source material, but of spatial structure and montage. He especially put emphasis on the creation of montage, and he proceeded to a series of experiments to reveal and prove his theory. In 1924, Kuleshov directed a film called The Extraordinary Adventures of Mr. West in the Land of the Bolsheviks, which had proven to be a tentative beginning of Soviet montage school. He applied many of his own theories in this film as
Although the films use similar process to develop the T-101, T-1000, and the Replicants, the audience cannot thematically connect the two films because their messages are so different. The films dystopic setting aids in the creation of ideals that Blade Runner and Terminator 2 exemplify. Blade Runner utilizes this bleak industrialized Los Angles where people are devoid of significant relationships with one another, whereas Terminator 2 shows a unification both in 1995 and 2029. An important aspect as to why the films are so different is that they represent two sides to the android/cyborg sub-genre of Science Fiction. Blade Runner represents the demoralization of the human race and the idealization of “The Other” where Terminator 2
V.I Pudovkin said that, “the foundation of film art is editing.” (Giannetti 2001:133) Early editing dates back to the late 1800’s. What became known as the Silent Period, 1885-1930, saw immense experimentation and new ideas blossom in terms of film editing which developed as different visionary individuals who still influence how we edit today, shaped it. Dancyger (2011:3) states that the first motion pictures date back to 1895, and editing was minimal if not non-exist. These films were about one minute in length. The cameras were placed without screen direction or compositional considerations and even lights were a variable.
At the end of it all, the questions of the film’s plot are unimportant. The most important question the film asks the audience is “Why did you want to watch that?” A man lies dead in a pool of his own blood, a son no longer has a father, a man’s marriage is falling apart and the audience, much like Georges, is still only interested in finding out who it was that made those tapes. The things happening around this plot point are almost like sideshow spectacles, distracting the viewer from the main event. In their search for the scopohilic, however, the audience misses the minutiae of the events surrounding them, consuming in a sort of blind frenzy. The film goes to great lengths show this to the audience, to try and get them to take a step back and critically examine why they want to watch events unfold, but the audience cannot see this, for they are too caught up in discovering who the culprit is, when it was them all along.

Most of the time in movies, in the 20s, the camera was static. The purpose of that camera technique was to make the audience feel like they were watching a play. Thus the Odessa step sequence is the most important use of the montage technique in cinema history due to the fact that it introduced the technique not only to audiences but also to other filmmakers thereby changing cinema for the
The blues music used in the scene sets the tonal montage aspect because it expresses the characters’ laid-back personalities despite their unlawful way of living. More importantly, the conceptual montage is what reveals the key things to highlight about the story even though the shots are not continually edited to make up a story. Each shot is taken from random times and at random places. This helps in knowing the theme of uncertainty, just like a person not living a civilized and lawful life will experience not having a life with purpose or sense of direction. It can be seen through how the shots are taken because it brings the viewer’s eye to different directions.
