While symbolism is used to get hidden meanings and statements across to the movie audience, cinematic effects are used to affect the movie audience’s perception of the movie. A great example of the use of cinematic effects is the scene, where Todd knocks on the door to another student’s room, where he talks through the door. In this scene, the close-up of Todd talking through the door is used as a cinematic effect to empathize one of the main themes of the movie, the loneliness that Todd
Many counterparts can be drawn between good and evil in The Crucible, and Miller’s juxtaposition of the characters shows the audience how one person acting with integrity can influence a society for good, and vice versa. Reverend Parris is an example of somebody who is extremely concerned with his standing in Salem village. He is afraid that when the people hear
This journal article belabours the point that is also a common theme in “The Autobiography of Malcolm X”: Malcolm’s changing views on civil rights. Again as a result of his tumultuous childhood because of the “white man”, Malcolm generalizes all white people as essentially haters of blacks because of the negative experiences he’s had with them and the tragic ways they treated him. But, as he grows older and matures, Malcolm has the eye-opening experience of seeing people of all colors worship next to each other. This is an interaction between blacks and whites that creates a positive environment as an outcome. Because of this experience, Malcolm X becomes less resilient to the idea that people of all colors can coexist.
In his novel, “Always Outnumbered Always Outgunned” author Walter Mosley places importance on the idea of male black bonds though the idea of brotherhood. He uses the main character, Socrates, and his relationships with other male black men to show the importance of community. Mosley uses his novel to state that brotherhood can be used to combat white injustice and better the black community by looking out for one another.

Introduction American History X is typical of the social drama genre of cinema, a filmic genre that moves and inspires people to change policy, practice and individual behavior. It is "a dramatic, sensitive but authentic treatment of social issues which powerfully connects the audience to the real emotions and real people that lie behind our assumptions, stereotypes and prejudices." (Welcome To Social Film Drama) The film is mainly concerned with the history of racism in America. American History X focuses on the evolving racial and socio-cultural attitudes of two brothers, Derek and Danny, who belong to a middle-class American family. Derek is an extremely clever and charismatic student, but he has been influenced by his father 's racism.
Throughout the entire play, audiences are exposed to atypical characters who, despite their adversities, actively participate in their negatively viewed life choices. For example, Mark and Roger, two of the main characters, attempt to make careers out of their passions: Mark as a filmmaker, and Roger as a musician. Whilst acknowledging their poverty, such as when Mark explains how they are both “hungry and frozen,” they also openly admit that their “uncomfortable” life was created with agency, determined by Roger’s immediate response saying, “Some life that we’ve chosen” (Rent). Although they may be struggling due to their alternative lifestyles compared to those with typical full time office jobs, it is clear that they have chosen to live differently from the status quo and demonstrates how Rent is a good portrayal of queer alternative lifestyles. This is reinforced in the conclusion of the play, which alludes to Mark and Roger’s upcoming successes in their particular fields of
The use of emotional appeal makes his speech effective. For example, “This Nation was founded by men of many nations and backgrounds. It was founded on the principle that all men are created equal, and that the rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened,” (Kennedy, Online) and “to make a commitment it has not fully made in this century to the proposition that race has no place in American life or law,” (Kennedy, Online). Pathos makes the audience connect their emotions to the speech. It makes them consider what points the speaker is trying to get across.
I decided to choose Get out for my narrative analysis piece. I think this mystery/thriller was a phenomenal film, but it got even better when I started breaking down the film and comparing it to film theory that we have learned so far from class. What I was looking at specifically when watching this movie was what the primary structural components of this film 's first act was, and how does this act engage the Audience 's attention and prepare them for what follows? This is a interestingly long topic that will involve looking at the films opening image, the first act, and its transition to the second act. The opening image begins with a black man walking down the street.

The thing is, Richards grows as a character when he meets Bradley, a black man who really helps him out. Bradley gave Richards a ride to Manchester, and got him a car, a disguise, and a place to stay as well. Richards, although at first he didn’t particularly care for the fact that he was stuck with Bradley and his family, he listened to Bradley talk about how awfully polluted the air was and how Richards could help raise awareness about this by talking about it on the tapes he sends in. On The Running Man, a contestant is required to record and mail in two tapes to be shown to the public as they are being updated on the hunt for the contestant. This situation helped Richards to bond with Bradley, causing him to grow as a person in how he became less ignorant towards colored folks.
