It was directed by David Lean and edited by Anne V. Coates. The movie received various awards, one of them being the academy award for best film editing in 1963. Freddie Young, also received various awards for his extraordinary cinematography. Lawrence of Arabia is still considered one of the most effective editing moment in history (Cinefix, n.d.). The matrix was a sic fi, action adventure film that was digitally captured and released in 1999.
When the montage of shots in the shower scene are examined frame by frame, we can see that the knife actually penetrates Marion’s body. Hitchcock used a prosthetic to showcase this act and it was very cleverly hidden in the montage sequence of the shower scene. Therefore we can see that violence was actually vivid to a certain scale even back then. But considering that Psycho was the film that broke many taboos and risked such graphic visual imagery, it is safe to say that the display of violence in mainstream horror movies has increased. Looking at Psycho and it controversial release, it is evident that the societal norms during that time were a lot more conservative than those of now.
The famous science-fiction film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, directed by the stalwart filmmaker, Stanley Kubrick, can be described as one of the seminal works ever in the history of world cinema. The film succeeds in leaving a very lasting effect on the minds of the audience with its sheer quintessence of content and aesthetic portrayal on the screen. An introspective analysis of the contextual work can make one understand how the filmmaker exudes his cinematic prowess via the use of impressive cinematic techniques that simply catapult the affective appeal of the narrative. What is extremely intriguing is the fact that the entire narrative is intertwined in spite of the episodic nature of the various stories. These stories come together to construct
The purpose of the symbols is to enhance the element of horror and mystery and also to contribute to the theme of the movie. Kubrick has effectively used mirrors- Whenever Jack sees a ghost, a mirror is always present, e.g., when he meets Lloyd there is a mirror behind the bartender, when he speaks with Grady there is a long mirror beside them, etc. The maze is also a symbol. It is designed in such a way to capture whoever ventured there. The word “redrum” when spelled in reverse turns into “murder”.
Under the European law, as a result of the auteur theory, one of the authors in the film or the director is considered as the author. The person of my choice as a film auteur after much consideration is David Cronenberg. He is a famous film maker such as Michel Gondry, Alfred Hitchcock and so on. Moreover, Cronenberg is the principle originator of body horror for horror films. 1969 is the year when David Cronenberg started making films, since then he has never changed his style of making films.
There are not many words used in this scene, which allows the viewers to really understand and analyse the purpose of the using water in this scene. The camera switches back and forth from the lovers, always revealing the tank of water as the common object that has brought them together. The music from the party gradually fades out and the two lovers stare intensely at each other through the water. Shortly following this scene, both Romeo and Juliet fall into a pool of water, still dressed in their costumes. The water in this scene reveals a sense of innocence about their love and creates a romantic atmosphere.
Surrealist film often relies heavily on symbols especially Freudian symbols in order to create meaning in their work. Often these symbols are phallocentric and feed into what MacCormack refers to as the “phallic regimes” or the patriarchal structure in which women are seen as less-than men and female sexuality is seen as a void to be filled. Possession both combats and plays into this system of symbolism with its use of the monster, which is both mucosal and phallic. Mucosal and viscous material can be made to represent a female orgasm. MacCormack describes the how in film women’s “sexual fluid as mucosal is a monstrosity” because it doesn’t take a clear shape and is not easily defined, just as the monster is something not understood or understandable (MacCormack, 97).
The opening scene in Citizen Kane (Orson Welles, 1941) sets the stage for probably the most critically acclaimed masterpiece in film history. Welles was truly a genius along with his cinematographer and partner in crime, Gregg Toland. Their filmography styles were elegant and sharply coordinated. Phenomenal techniques were used, such as cutting holes through the stage ground and to get new and interesting angles of perspective on important scenes. Also expertly done were Citizen Kane’s camera angles.
And even the history of relations between Deborah and Noodles is one of the most interesting scenes in the film from a psychological point of view, is absolutely not as straightforward as it seems at first glance. Leone always expertly conveyed all sorts of subtle psychological nuances - how of the story (he wrote scripts for his films, even when originally ordered scenes from some famous authors), and with the help of the actors. Personally, I think all these bloody and naturalistic scenes, which many in the film and which has deprived the American public, not superfluous, but rather simply needed for a proper understanding of the ideas of the Director. Because it is life - real life that is not clean and smooth. It has everything - blood, sex, betrayal, friendship, love, deception, crime and sacrifice.
Bhardwaj accords Nimmi much of the plot’s twists and turns, she uses her sexual control over Maqbool ,plants the seed of murder in his head ,uses all her wits to cast her spell over him and Abbaji. She does justice to Lady Macbeth’s character,. Her madness and guilt consciousness near the climax of the movie is parallel to lady macbeth’s sickness in act V ,sc I. She keeps wiping her face for she thinks theres blood on it still, her cleaning the wall as she sees blood all over it reminds one of the scene when Lady Macbeth says “ here’s the smell of blood still; all the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand. Oh oh
