"But a wolf laid himself across the narrow mountain path". Another similarity is that both of the antagonists get hurt by the goats. In the Norwegian version of the article "Three billy goats gruff", this is what happens, "Well, come along! I 've got two spears, And I 'll poke your eyeballs out at your ears; I 've got besides two curling-stones, And I
Symbols in To Kill a Mockingbird Harper Lee utilizes a snowman to embody race equality in To Kill a Mockingbird. Lee writes, “Jem scooped up some snow and began plastering it on. He permitted me to cover only the back, saving the public parts for himself. Gradually Mr. Avery turned white” (Lee88-91). This quote shows how Jem and Scout plaster the snow onto the dirt.
The use of background light was an important focus in this picture, there was less attention to lighting the actors faces but in almost every frame there is well placed background light often combined with a moving light source. Repetition was also evident within the visual composition of the frame, the actors were rarely positioned within the center of the frame but always to the left or the right with a light source covering them from behind. Ridley Scott perfectly matches colorful high key light with low key lights creating impeccable contrast, this lighting used could be described as a modern Citizen Kane style. Although this is overall a very dark and low light film, the motif of shadows and darkness allows the beauty of light to truly be
Like in Annie Hall, the main character is sometimes breaks the fourth wall. Rob is a great talker in this movie, but it can get a little unpleasant. He just lets the words pour out while staring into the
The crop duster scene, one of many notable sequences from this movie, uses: lighting, color, camera angles and distances, shot duration, continuity editing, and mise-en-scéne to provide suspense, desperation, and isolation to the character onscreen, and make the viewers feel the same offscreen. Works
To start things off, The Chrysanthemums by John Steinbeck has quite a bit of imagery to reinforce his theme of confinement and isolation. In the very beginning of the story he is already using imagery to let the readers get an image of what the valley looks like and the area around it. Steinbeck says “The high-gray flannel fog of winter closed off the Salinas Valley from the sky and from all the rest of the world. On every side it sat like a lid on the mountains and made of the great valley a closed pot. On the broad, level land floor the gang plows bit deep and left the black earth shining like metal where the shares had cut”.
The theme prevalent in The Bull Moose by Aiden Nowlan is that nature is slowly dying. As seen in stanza 1, lines 4-5, “came the bull moose to be stopped at last by a pole fenced pasture”; the moose is stopped by a fence. This represents the facts that nature is being stopped by human made structures. Additionally, in stanza 6, lines 1-2, “When the wardens came, everyone agreed it was a shame to shoot something so shaggy and cuddlesome.” demonstrates regret of the intent to kill the moose. Finally, “All the young men leaned on their automobile horns as he toppled.”
In this case, this would be in the battle against Fezzik or the rat in Fire swamp, where Westley was put in a low angle shot in order to make the opponents appear much stronger. However, this turns around towards the end and Westley wins. Camera angles also show skills as the difference within the angles expresses the mood. Low angles show that the character is very brave and sturdy and high angles show that the character is weak and afraid.
The filmmaker, Heyerdahl, does a good job of having documented everything in a concise manner for the narrator. All the information flowed really well, and everything seemed to be in a very neat chronological order, which is one of the elements in the expository mode of documentary cinema. While it’s obvious that the journey actually happened, it is uncertain as to whether the sound was captured on location as well.
