Film takes photography to another level. Film, or the cinema “is objectivity in time.” For the first time with film “the image of things is likewise the image of their duration, change mummified as it were”. Bazin argues "only the impassive lens, stripping its object of all those ways of seeing it, those piled- up preconceptions, that spiritual dust and grime with which my eyes have covered it, are able to present it in all its virginal purity to my attention and consequently to my love. By the power of photography, the natural image of a world that we neither know nor can know, nature at last does more than imitate art: she imitates the
Composing, directing, and starring in these movies, Keaton made a world not at all like the other comic stars of the circumstances. Where Harold Lloyd combat physical misfortune attempting to make it to the best, and Charlie Chaplin maintained a strategic distance from fiasco through fortunes and cooperative attitude, Keaton was an onlooker, an explorer made up for lost time in his environment. He frequently wound up in an indistinguishable trading off conditions from Chaplin and Lloyd (pursued by a furious group, deserted by a prepare), yet he kept up a feeling of even self-restraint all through. Regardless of how lost or discouraged Keaton appeared to be, he was never one to be felt sorry for. The NEW YORK TIMES said of him, "In a film world that misrepresented everything, and in which each feeling was performed and explained, he stayed indifferent and grave, his poker-confronted uncertainty smothering all feeling."
It was described as "the most famous short film ever made" by critic Roger Ebert. (Ebert, 2000) The films purpose was not merely to explore the visions of two artistic individuals, but moreover, it was a comment based on social and historical context, which it aimed to sabotage through mockery and subversion. Buñuel himself stated that “our only rule was very simple: no idea or image that might lend itself to a rational explanation of any kind would be accepted.” (Buñuel,
Stargirl Caraway is self-confident, curious, independent, and happy being herself. She did not need to change her character or appearance if she was okay being authentic. In fact, Stargirl didn’t want to be popular, but she changed for Leo. For example, “She constantly quizzed me about what other kids would do, would buy, would say, would think.” (Spinelli 142). The quotes proves
Contrary to popular belief, Lady Macbeth is not an evil character. She is simply a misguided woman who is extremely determined to have her way. Although she took a lot of wrong turns, she did realize in the end that what she did was horrifically wrong. Lady Macbeth was not a bad person, She only wishes greatness for her husband and also wants to be part of his greatness, though she does let her guilt get to her in the end. During the play, Lady Macbeth only wanted to help her husband achieve greatness- even if it meant she would have to murder some people.
God has called His church to be in the world, but not of it . In a society that idolizes films and the culture they engulf, Christians must consider how they will respond to the worldview seen in movies. Film is art; Art was created for the purpose of providing enjoyment to those observing. The movies act as a medium between the observers and the worldview of the creator. However, like any other nicety of the world, the art in movies has been tampered by the sin of man.
The evolution of the director Baz Lurhmann Andrew Venter Topic two: “Lurhmann’s films are not so much adaptations as re-imaginings” Baz Lurhmann is a very distinctive director who is both loved and hated for his bold cinematic techniques. These techniques allow Lurhmann to recreate famous titles such as Romeo and Juliet in a way that very few people could have ever imagined. From Lurhmann’s first film Strictly Ballroom these techniques were very prevalent and instead of out growing these brash techniques he actually evolved and developed his techniques. And thus resulted, resulting in the creations of very successful films. In this essay I will be discussing how Lurhmann has evolved these cinematic techniques beginning in Strictly Ballroom, continuing in Romeo and Juliet and finally in The Great Gatsby.

There is no harmony between the individual image and its setting. The imagery in Tamburlaine does not lack power, though it is most effective when one rhetorical image leads on to another. Tamburlaine’s description of his triumph in the last act of Part I is an example of such effective, cumulative series of little pictures which according to Ellis-Fermor “no one… can be
