As the movie poster from Citizen Kane says, "Everybody 's talking about it, It 's terrific!" Though, what exactly is it that makes Citizen Kane the best movie of all time? Many, such as the New York Times on its debut in 1941, have acknowledged that "Citizen Kane was "one of the great (if not the greatest) motion pictures of all time" (qtd. in Brown).

Ultimately, Walter who represented society destroyed that escape and left her unable to carry on with her only role as a piano teacher, as she stabbed herself and left the building at the end of the
This allows Viola, Maria, and Feste to, in a sense, become figures of virtues and do what they can to pull the others away from their excess. Viola calls Olivia out on her self-pity by interrupting her state of mourning by calling her selfish for not sharing her beautiful features with the world and keeping herself locked away in darkness. She tells Olivia, “Lady, you are the cruel’st she alive / if you will lead these graces to the grave / and leave the world no copy,” (1.5. 236-238). She also, in a sense, helps Orsino come out of his self-righteous nature because he falls in love with her for her.
Once again the main goal of this movement is not to transmit information or a narrative but feelings of sadness and despair. In terms of narrative and information, commercial films requirements would have certain approximation with soviet montage, as the different cuts and camera movements do inform the audience about the feelings and reactions of the character to certain situation.

Both the directors have experimented with voyeurism, and opening title sequences. Both are infamous for using intricate storyboards prior to the filming process. Also, both the directors have somehow gone unnoticed by the Academy; perhaps because both have had trouble with censor boards, and both decide to go the extra mile to disconcert their audiences. As the Master of Suspense so eloquently put himself; “Always make the audience suffer as much as possible”.3 CITATIONS 1. "The Hitchcock Effect."
In the song “Fake Plastic Trees” by Radiohead, the theme is about the struggle of searching and finding someone you think you truly love in a world full of fake people. The song tells a description of the lady the writer loves from his point of view. He talks about her “plastic” life, pointing out how fake everything in her life is using metaphors and comparisons. The song in general is about trying to find love and believing its true and sincere, then realizing in the end it was fake or not what you had expected. It has an overall hopeless an depressing theme to it, to help show that everyone is trapped in an artificial world surrounded by fake-ness.
Furthermore, another exaggerated representation of crime by the media is this overemphasis of extraordinary crimes. Felson & Eckert, (2015) discusses the 2 main fallacies about crime, these focus on misconception of crime. The ‘Dramatic fallacy’ is the focus on drama crime that are shocking. Felson & Eckert states that “The media are carried away by a horror-distortion sequence” they find a story that entertains the public and also make profit while forming a fairy tales in the minds of the public then carry on this fable into the next story. While this is happening, the public misconception of crime grow therefore, it is no accident that crime becomes so distorted in the public mind (Felson & Eckert, 2015).
Weirdly enough, part of the immersion we want from a film is to make us not notice we are seeing a film. We like getting into its fictional world and looking through the characters’ eyes in a way that feels natural, even in the wildest and craziest stories. When we talk about great films, we get into abstract territory: technical, original, controversial, or just fun. Entertainment is key, and while a lot of times comedies lack deep characters and are filled with generic storylines and clichés, writer/director Wes Anderson comes to prove us all wrong. He presents his story in a way that it lets you know you are watching a work of fiction, more in the fashion of a moving painting than traditional film some might say.
