After watching The 39 Steps (1935), I realized that Alfred Hitchcock really did have a talent for establishing suspense through films. Even though suspense was the primary focus, Hitchcock managed to effectively and intelligently mix humor, romance, and thriller. He uses a variety of techniques to convey these feelings to the audience. According, to some of his interviews with Francois Truffaut, Hitchcock mentions his love for The 39 Steps, specifically about the techniques he uses to create a bewitching experience throughout the film. In this film, he uses a variety of themes that he continued to constantly use throughout his later films.

Tim Burton is one of the most celebrated directors in America. He seems to lock his viewers in a sort of trance while they are watching his films. This is due to his skills in imagery, point of view, and his use of symbolism to modern society–this can especially be seen in his 2007 film Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Tim Burton defined a whole other genre of films. He creates gothic, dark films with sinister atmospheres.

Get some sleep, Tom. They won't bother you any more.” (page 206, Harper Lee) This was right after the county mob came to the jail to kill Tom Robinson, but Atticus and the children were there to stop it.

Yet Tom Robinson could not have done a thing to stop the mob if others weren't there to protect him.
This is best done by comparing two of his films, namely, Romeo and Juliette and The Great Gatsby. Although both these films have a large variety of common factors, such as the spectacular parties, the use of music and symbolism, it is how these techniques are executed that show us how he has evolved as a director. One technique that Baz Luhrmann has mastered is his ability to show the importance of a specific idea. This is clearly seen in his films like Romeo and Juliette, where he emphasized on the importance of violence by using guns rather than swords, he went even further in The Great Gatsby where he made Gatsby’s parties wild and crazy, not something that actually happened in the time when Gatsby is
I was going through boxes looking for something, anything that would help me finish this project. My teacher just handed out an essay that we have to do on the history of a family member . My Dad told me if we have anything it would be in the trunk upstairs, but there were only trinkets in the trunk. I resorted to scavenging through the boxes in the attic. I gave up after finding nothing except a picture of some man sitting on a pony.
