His films also produce a “brand of awkward and sometimes sad comedy” that is found in each one of his films (Biography.com). Wes Anderson’s visual styles is one of his most notable and identifying characteristics. While much of this can be attributed to his cinematographer, Robert Yeoman, the both of them have been partners in crime for decades. The typical Wes Anderson style includes flat compositions, a perfect symmetry, and eccentric color pallets (Aldredge). Moonrise Kingdom is no exception these defining elements and is one of Anderson’s more famous films because of its exceptional cinematography.
According to Robin Wood “Hitchcock returns repeatedly to the suspense thriller for his material; he generally uses established stars who were “personalities” first and actors second; there is a strong element of humour in his work, “gags” and “comic relief” which effectively undermine any pretensions to sustained seriousness of
Aristotelian Argument: Representation of the Great Gatsby The two movies, The Great Gatsby by Baz Luhrmann and Midnight in Paris by Woody Allen had quite similarities in the character’s to the novel. Both films created a significant portrayal of The Great Gatsby. The films had a similar theme as in the novel towards reliving in the past. Characters, like Nick and Gil, were selfish and didn 't want anything but to succeed in what they wanted. The real names and personalities of the characters were brought out in The Great Gatsby film, whereas Midnight in Paris used different characters to bring the novel to life.
Although most antagonist share a lot of the same traits as the villain with being conniving, evil, and looking for a way to sabotage the protagonist, Hamlet’s Claudius and The Lion King’s Scar are significantly different. They of course aim for the same motives, but the way they go about situations and their overall personas are like night and day. To start off, they both have extremely different relationships with the protagonist. Claudius from the beginning wants to be on good terms with Hamlet, with reminding him that he’s now not only his uncle, but his stepfather. He’s eager to know what’s wrong with him and sometimes shows some concern.
The Birds, by Alfred Hitchcock are very different in character dynamics, but is very similar in themes and how conflicts affect the development of the plot. This leads not only to the wondering about how the plot would have ended had there been a follow up at the end of each work, but also it keeps the audience between which had a more attention grabbing climax. As well as the need for more development in comparison of the two main characters. In the book and the movie there are several different types of relationships and interactions taking place between the characters. For instance, Mitch and Nat are both the male leads who take charge in the life altering events, however, it seems that the stories persona switches from the lead of Mitch to Melony.
Satire is very abundant in this novel and is found in many different themes and characters. One of the main targets of satire in the novel is Pangloss’s philosophical optimism. Voltaire also uses satire to criticize religion, war and mortality. His characters escape death, only to have them face harsher situations. Voltaire exaggerates situations to show how ridiculous some ideas or opinions can be.
The main character is busy barricading the house to make it safer, Mr. Cooper is in the basement waiting for Ben to do all the work and take all the risks, much like slave owners did many years ago. Correspondingly, throughout the movie Ben is betrayed and held back by the white people around him, just as the African Americans have been for many years. The ending of this film is graphic and symbolic, as it shows the African American character being murdered and treated like something other than human, he is shot, but there are no repercussions for the shooter, instead he is praised by the sheriff. After Ben is shot the hunting party is shown sinking their meat hooks into him to bring Ben’s body to the fire to be burned. Meat hooks are used by butchers not only to move meat, but to hang it as well.
Walking the Line George is not only one of the main characters in John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, but he is also one of the most complex. He walks the line with an array of mixed emotions, such as his quick anger towards Lennie and then at key moments, he also shows his loving, compassionate side that we don’t always get to experience. This is the very complicated side to him due to his personal emotional distress. For example, having to take care of Lennie and then, due to disturbing events, he feels he needs to shoot him in order to protect him.. Although the story stops there, we can infer that particular situation causes George even more emotional damage, and adds to his overwhelming loneliness.
We see this, especially in films and literature. This weakness can either be physical or mental, and it eventually brings the character to his/her down flaw. This character may even be the protagonist. In the case of Macbeth, Macbeth's fatal flaw is his ambition. But a fatal flaw can be anything, arrogance, greed, temper, or even something as simply innocent as curiosity.
The Auteur Theory-Intro Part Considering the collaborative process of filmmaking, especially nowadays in most film production, the concept of there being a singular creative supervisor is debatable. Nonetheless one cannot deny the existence of directional motifs and instances of thematic and stylistic elements within the work of filmmakers like Tim Burton and Alfred Hitchcock. These directors indicate that within traditions and genres lies the overall definition of an auteur: a director whose inventive traits are listed throughout his/her work like a signature. Auteurism rose to the surface in the 1950s French New Wave criticism as an appraisal of Hollywood directors who were ready to avoid the rules of the studio system and create films that were distinctively their own. Before this markable period, film authors were generally self-directing with open stylistic aspirations and full management over their films.
