It would seem obvious to consider Bigelow an auteur, however, she lacks the greatness that most auteurs have earned. Great auteurs seem to capture magic through their recurrent techniques and themes. Alfred Hitchcock puts the audience on edge building tension and suspense and using silence in Psycho (1960) while making them reevaluate their morality as he makes voyeurs of his audience in Rear Window (1954). Quentin Tarantino’s obsession with blood and gore gives his movies a deeper element of intensity (or, in some cases, comic relief). Kathryn Bigelow has the iconography of an auteur- she employs recurrent themes and film techniques- however, she is not on the same level of artistic depth when compared to other auteurs; therefore, the jury is still out on whether she is fully considered an
Growing up in a society obsessed with the concept of sappy love stories, it is easy to find flaws with the unrealisticness of such accounts of love. Songwriter Taylor Swift contributes to the popular trend of mainstream love stories in her own composition, “Love Story.” Throughout her song, Swift effectively incorporates the use of various figurative devices to relate her own love story with that of the famous Shakespearean lovers, Romeo and Juliet. Swift conveys the strength of her forbidden love, in similarity with that of Romeo and Juliet’s, through the use of metaphors, hyperboles, and allusions. First and foremost, Swift uses clear examples of metaphors throughout her song to maintain the resemblance of Romeo and Juliet’s love story with her own love story. Throughout the song, as it will be described later, Swift makes multiple comparisons between her lover as Romeo and herself as Juliet.
Concepts that entice the audience, events that show the supremacy and authority good has over evil, and a story that exhibits the true power and capability of love, “A Wrinkle in Time.” The main premise of the novel, a “Wrinkle in Time” is apropos a girl, named Meg, who despite her faults, anger, impatience, and lack of self-confidence, uses the power of love to disenthrall and free her brother, Charles Wallace, from the malevolent IT. As portrayed in the past movie productions, the modus operandi is to alter the novel, which thereby condenses the film to retain the attention span of the audience. In respect to the motion picture, “A Wrinkle in Time,” abundant has changed. The setting has been more modernized as opposed to anachronistic as depicted in the novel. The plot of the movie is of discrepancy when compared to the novel.
Howard seeks to find answers by writing letters to these ideas and with the idea of Whit, Claire and Simon, encounters these abstract concepts, with it bringing unexpected response. He then begins to understand and see how his situation and grief cannot only bring along deep meaning but also beauty. This film searches for meaning in depression and tragedy and shows that although we face these great suffering and pain, they too can bring forth collateral beauty. According to the text, gender can be defined as the non-physiological aspects of being female or male that is instilled in the cultural expectations for femininity and masculinity (Lips, 2005). Based on the beliefs regarding men and women in society, gender roles and gender stereotypes have been created in order to label men and women into distinct categories, giving great disparity between the two in regards to what behaviors and characteristics are expected of
. We tested it along with other stocks, and Tom and I both decided this would be the one.” The particularity of this stock is the high saturation, especially for the reds. (Thompson, nd) As Kirsten Moana Thompson says on "Falling in (to) Color", the colour scheme used in A Single Man is a "fall to embodiment, sensuality and the pain of a lover 's loss." This phrase could be the exact description of the film, in which desire and loss collide into a powerful depiction of the story of George. It makes the story intimate, relatable even, despite the poetry of telling a story with music and artistic
A key aspect of this is the guilty reader technique. Using the guilty reader technique, Hawthorne brings the sympathy of the reader by casting the character of Hester Prynne in a positive, nonjudgmental light. He persuades the reader to embrace a certain viewpoint and fully commit to it, followed by an abrupt flip of the tables later in the story, exposing the ugly truth of the viewpoint the reader previously supported wholeheartedly. This is a masterful way of showing the reader the allure of the (morally) wrong viewpoint, drawing the reader into the story, making them part of the drama by evoking emotion on the character’s behalf. The reader should not attempt to counter it, as it is prudent to withhold final evaluations until the story is finished.
The discordance between two separate depictions of marriage in The Ramayana force the reader to look at the text more closely to discern the true nature of the ideal marriage. The romance of Rama and Sita emphasizes passion and respect, while the textually earlier story of Sage Gautama and Ahalya silences the wife’s voice and allows for unwarranted punishment. Before Rama and Sita even share their first transformative meeting of eyes, the epic tells the tale of Ahalya. Created “out of the ingredients of absolute beauty,” Indra lusted after her (19). Brahma, bothered

The success of the novel is that Meyer approaches the classic myth of the vampire from modernity, creating characters with whom adolescents identified and felt close (dark aesthetic, unconventional, facing a hostile environment, tortured by Impossible love), all of this is worked out by agile and uncomplicated dialogues.
