The Beginning of Good Night, and Good Luck is a setting which could be happening all over the world at this very moment. Wonderful tuxedoes with amazing dresses flowing throughout the room. Classic jazz streaming in the air. With smoke billowing throughout the room and finishing with it all over David Strathairn, playing Edward R. Murrow (Clooney). The director (George Clooney) is setting the stage for something very important that is about to happen.
The film one has chosen to review and analyse is George Clooney's “Goodnight and Good Luck”. It is set in America in the 1950's, a full decade after World War II ended, a period of economic growth and recovery after the Great Depression. It was a time of revolution in terms of social, economic and cultural advancement. Having said that, it was also a period of political turmoil, paranoia and intimidation under Senator Joseph McCarthy. This movie explores the way journalist Edward Murrow used his position to expose McCarthy and his abuse of power.
He uses different lighting to display different moods to set the scene. In the same film, Edward Scissorhands, he uses a variety of lighting but in this particular shot he uses high key lighting to show that it is flooded with light, creating a bright and open looking scene. When the camera shows Peg’s neighborhood, it looks all happy and colorful but in reality the neighborhood isn’t all that great. The people in her community are unpleasant and they don’t accept others very well and they approach people with disrespect. Peg’s so called friends are always gossiping and they are also rude.
A major angle he relies on are close ups. This camera angle can be seen when Edward is having a flashback of his inventor giving him prosthetic hands. This close up gives the viewer a sense of his true facial expressions, it can see in this shot that Edward is unsure of the hands. Another way Burton uses close ups is to show the character's flaws, an example of this can be seen when there is a close up of Edward's face while he is cutting hair. This close up allows the viewer to see all of the scars on Edward's face.
In Edward Scissorhands, Tim Burton used costuming as a way to describe a person’s personality and intentions. In the movie, the people who have magnanimous intentions wore bright colors and more conservative clothes. While Edward did not have any intentions of being there, nor did he have a personality, thus he wore neutral colors. His style is peculiar in the movie with clothes and hair. When Edward is cutting hair in the movie he chose very uncommon hairstyles.
The majority of movies he produces is Horror and he uses that lighting to give off a feel of suspense and anticipation. The darkness may be creepy because you don't know all of what's there. Tim burton uses low key lighting in his movies, for example in Edward Scissorhands when Edward was in the corner of the mansion when Peg came in you couldn't really see him because he used low key lighting to give off that feel of not knowing what or who is in the room.
The film depicts the past by including the original footage from Treadwell, this is because he always had the movie camera with him. Then, the present time was where the director, Werner Herzog, shot the footage. In the original footage, the bears did not seem to be the main focus; Treadwell made sure the focus was also on him. Throughout the movie he would make sure to talk to the camera and explain things about himself, his life, and what he believed was his purpose in life. He was always filming, therefore many times he would be able to retake certain
The film Good Will Hunting follows the story of a janitor, Will Hunting, working at MIT with a secret gift for advanced mathematics. After being arrested during a street fight, Will is given an ultimatum; either go serve time in prison, or work under the tutelage of Professor Gerald Lambeau, who discovered his talent for proofs.
