It grabs the reader’s attention immediately with its opening sentence, “I lost an arm on my last trip home.” This foreshadows the violence and physical suffering that Dana will face in the novel. The police officers, who arrested Kevin because they believed he was responsible for Dana’s injuries, foreshadows the abuse of power that the authority figures, in this case Rufus and his father, will display. The reader also gets a look at Dana’s hesitation to tell the complete truth out of fear of being disbelieved or considered

Arnold Friend is an archetype of death. Being very persistent he tells Connie “gonna get you baby” (Oates 430) and proceeds to follow through with his plan, consisting of using many mind games and in the end winning the power struggle. Arnold friend seems to know a great deal about Connie’s home life and private life without her having to disclose any information. This story’s setting is before social media so the only way he could’ve obtained this information is through stalking or to be a close family friend is disguise. The tone is dark and frightening because Connie does not seem to have control of herself, she “watches as her body leave the house and advances towards Arnolds arms” finally accepting defeat no longer fighting to exist.
I am going to focus on the cinematic element of sound because I think it is a very important element in film when it comes to producing the whole effect of a scene. In the film High Noon, Will Kane goes to see Martin Howe at is home. Will was the marshal of the town, but as of today he no longer is. Yet, he is preparing to face a criminal he arrested that just got out of jail recently. Martin tells Will he should just get out of town and goes on to say, “You end up dying all alone on some dirty street.
This aspect of film noir is a classic camera pan that sets up the scene in which Sam (Dooley Wilson) emerges from the shadows to offer help to Rick in his time of remorse and depression at having lost Ilsa. This camera work provides a magnificent atmospheric effect, which highlights Rick (in his white suit) with the massive shadows of the cafe that reflect his own depression and alcoholic tendencies in the contrast of light and
“One mom at my children’s school adamantly refused to learn my ‘impossible’ name and instead settled on calling me ‘F Word.’ She was recently transferred to New York where, from what I’ve heard, she might meet an immigrant or two and, who knows, she might have to make some room in her spice cabinet” (741). This closing fragment lightens up the mood to focus not only on the “downside” of moving to America, but also for the lessons learned and thinking adjustments that may or may not have been
“Shutter Island” is a 2010 psychological thriller directed by award-winning American filmmaker Martin Scorsese set in 1950s Boston. Based on author Dennis Lehane’s novel of the same name, it pays homage to the film noir genre and portrays the story of Andrew Laeddis (played by Oscar winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio): a mentally deranged man who, due to his tragic past and actions, is fully convinced he is a US marshal named Edward “Teddy” Daniels on Shutter Island to investigate the alleged disappearance of an inmate from the local mental institution. The film explores Teddy’s inability to grasp reality and accept responsibility in the murder of his wife and 3 children and in the end truly depicts the brutal physical treatments enforced on mentally ill individuals at the time. Scorsese makes expert use of camera shots and angles to visualise teddy’s inescapable challenge. The techniques have a variety of purposes, such as demonstrating Teddy’s power (or lack thereof) and his feelings.
Rear Window uses slow-paced scenes to create suspense the audience loves. Alfred Hitchcock skillfully combines the lives of the other neighbors with the main story to create this suspense. In the movie, we observe the neighbors alongside Jefferies and decide whether we have enough evidence that Mr. Thorwald is guilty.
It appeared the building was possessed by some evil power (Kubrick suggested it could be because the house was built on the Native Americans’ cemetery) that killed some of visitors and workers. The spirit or demon was interested in Danny’s abilities, but the boy used them to call help and save himself and his mother. Jack died (froze to death in the movie) and joined the ranks of people affected by the Overlook Hotel. Kubrick’s The Shining can be called the most famous screen adaptation of this novel. This status remains despite the fact the director cut and changed some aspects of the original story.
He follows the crow until he reaches his abandoned apartment.

Pathos is another significant element in the film. Guggenheim shows pathos throughout by including Gores tragic life stories, word choice, and his various analogies. Guggenheim brings pathos into the film when Gore starts talking about his six-year-old son who was hit by a car chasing his friend across the street (25:50). This scene in the film allows the audience to feel sympathy towards Gore and allows the audience relate to Gore as some of the audience maybe parents. Gore then relates this story back to global warming by tying it in with how it changed everything in his life and he learned what was important to him.
Barton Fink, a film by brothers Ethan and Joel Coen, is meant to be a study of contrasts and contradictions. Set just before the start of World War II the story centers on the lives of two characters, the eponymous Barton Fink and his next door neighbor, the “common man” insurance salesman Charlie Meadows. Barton is presented as a young playwright from New York City whose desire is to produce “a new living theater, of and about the common man.” His craft represents “high art” but is convinced to come to Hollywood by the promise of a high salary to produce “low art” film scripts. He comes off as cold, uncaring, and perhaps a bit neurotic. Even though he can afford better living arrangements Barton chooses to stay at the Hotel Earle, a seedy drab hotel because of his desire to live like a common man.
