The director Martin Scorsese’s characterizes the New York mafia in the film Goodfellas on the basis of a true story, and the commonality that Scorsese has with the director Baz Luhrmann’s film, The Great Gatsby (2013), is that they share a depiction of characters in New York organized crime which creates the cinematic mood reflecting different eras. The cinematic language of both directors’ communicates to viewers by way of their artistic use of mise-en-scène, staging and design, as well as composition in a drama genre. The film Goodfellas departs from the consistent violence of a gangster film genre through the way Scorsese portrays the characters. For example, the scene where Henry’s (Ray Liotta) voice-over point of view shifts to his wife Karen (Lorraine Bracco), she describes her average lifestyle, and later the film depicts mise-en-scène in the expensive parties, family gatherings, poker gambling games, and restaurant/night club gatherings. Moreover, they seek the most extravagant lifestyle quietly at times, not to bring attention to themselves.
One example of foreshadowing in the novel is in chapter 4 when Nick is introduced to Mr. Wolfsheim, a gambler who is friends with Gatsby and who, according to Gatsby, “fixed the world’s series back in 1919”. This suggests that Gatsby got his wealth through illegal actions, which we learn to be true later in the book. 2. There is another example of foreshadowing in chapter 7 which foreshadows Gatsby’s death. “Gatsby stood in the centre of the crimson carpet and gazed around with fascinated eyes.” A crimson carpet could be associated with blood or death, and with Gatsby in the center of it, this can be connected to foreshadowing his death.

The Great Gatsby and Midnight in Paris The characters of the two films, The Great Gatsby by Baz Luhrmann and Midnight in Paris by Woody Allen, represent the characters of Fitzgerald’s novel, The Great Gatsby, in their own ways. The Great Gatsby movie brings the characters to life using both the real names and the same attitude as in the book, whereas Midnight in Paris uses completely different characters to bring the novel to life. Luhrmann’s adaptation of Fitzgerald’s novel was precise in pinpointing the characters and their state of mind as well as their attitude in general. The main characters of the story, Gatsby, Nick, Tom, Daisy, and Jordan, are portrayed well in the movie. In the novel, Tom is described as burling, which is how the character in the movie was played.

Setting is one of the most important devices to use when writing a strong story. F. Scott Fitzgerald uses setting well in the Great Gatsby as a means to contrast and compare the rich and the poor. East Egg and West Egg are the settings for the rich, The valley of ashes is home for the poor and the hopeless and New York City is the setting for the business of the wealthy, their playground, and a place to hide their secrets. F. Scott Fitzgerald uses setting as a device to highlight differences between the classes. The valley of ashes is the town for the poor.
The neorealist development started in Italy toward the end of World War II as a dire reaction to the political turmoil and edgy monetary conditions tormenting the nation.

The best-known illustrations remain is De Sica 's Bicycle Thieves, a discriminating and prominent wonder that opened the world 's eyes to this development. Italian Neo-Realist movies are among the most powerful movies ever, just for the way that they utilized a sensible elaborate approach that was option to that of the gleaming Hollywood movies (Corrigan & White, 2009), and that they sensibly talked about topics and subjects that were available all through Italy at the time, splitting far from the "vacuous amusement" that Italian film was long ago viewed as (Monticelli, 2000). While Italian Neo-Realism was made different as an issue of components of cinematography, for example, shooting on area and utilizing characteristic and accessible light on "set", there is such a great amount of additional to Neo-Realism than what we see on the screen.
