You sometimes feel like you know what might be coming next, and even when it does it still makes you jump – sure happened to me when I was watching it! And in this film, how it was filmed is very important. To create some of the scenes, they needed to use special effects and what they film and the angles they film at will affect the way the audience sees it and feels about it. For example, in the first dream with Ariadne and Cobb, they are in Paris. When she realises they are in a dream, things around her explode and the table shakes and all these different shots and effects give the whole point that it’s her imagination that is making the dream.
Mise-en-scene implies the layout of everything that shows up in the frame, including the performers, lighting, stylistic layout, props, and ensemble. mise-en-scène, a French expression that signifies "setting in front of an audience." In movies, putting on the stage truly means setting on the screen, and the movie director is accountable for choosing what goes where, when, and how. Gibbs, J. (2002) David A. Cook points out in his book A History of Narrative Film, how a mise-en-scène is shaped by all the parts that appear “within a shot itself, as opposed to the effects created by cutting.” What he basically means is that whatever is in the shot and is a physical object is considered part of the Mise-en-scene.
The film focuses on the characters lives and how they can keep going when they struggle with society. The film uses rhetorical strategies such as pathos, ethos, and logos to make this movie bring emotions, blank stares, and leave the audience to question reality. The purpose of the specific camera shots and angles is to provide an appropriate view of the movie. Lastly, the use of persuasion to allow the audience to interpret what the film says versus the thoughts in their head. The film does a good job of pointing out the flaws in our system and a specific culture that the flaws
It switches from room to room with little movement. Although the angles were not extravagant, for this particular movie i feel as if they didn't need to be. Most of the story came from the actors and the dialogue shared from one another. Overall the cinematography was done well in my opinion, and was not to annoying or crazier than it needed to
For that reason one could speak of a clear duality in geographic space represented in cinema. Images, even when they are real, are perceived by viewers which challenge any detailed reconstruction of scenery or geography with the help of characters movement in the film. Films, such as After the Dark contribute to the creation, or the familiarization for those people who have visited a tropical place, of scenery, through its magnified representation”(Orueta, Valdes, 2008;p.408). After
Mise-en-scene is present throughout this film, but a couple aspects that are particularly significant include, the lighting, costumes/makeup, and the setting. The lighting during the daytime scenes is very natural creating a realistic effect for the viewers,
This feature was able convey the message to the audience very effectively for example; the scene in which the officer is pointing towards the camera “You will not laugh, you will not cry” is sending a message of control and dominance. The director was able to position the shot from a below the eye-level shot, in which the camera is placed below, from the trainees perspective. This shot was an important element for control, dominance, and shows the Sargent being very superior. Secondly, the editing of this film was very progressive, and starts to build up towards the end. In addition, the framing of most of the shots was mostly track in and track out, primarily to focus on the subject.
The actors created the scenes with the use of these blocks even if the audience saw them. In the car scene, for example, one of the clowns makes the car in centre stage. This added humour as the audience could laugh at the clown while he was making the car. The set allowed the cast, especially the clowns, to quickly change outfits and become new people in different locations. Another scene where creative stagecraft is evident is the stair scene.
With the relatability, it creates a connection that makes us enjoy the movie that much more. The setting may seem like it’s not of any importance, but truly it is a main factor in creating a classic film, such as The Breakfast Club. The setting is an important part of a film. It not only just gives us a time and place, it puts us in that place. It gives us the reality and understanding of the story to be able to comprehend what is going on.
