A dream of dark and troubling things: Eraserhead and the midnight film phenomenon. It's midnight in the Elgin theatre in New York, 1977, and a group of no more than 30 people keep their eyes glued to the screen getting ready to watch the film that continues the midnight film phenomenon; David Lynch's, Eraserhead. It's not a hot ticket and with very little advertising, the film depends solely on word of mouth for it's survival. Luckily, the key to success of a midnight movie is the film's connection to its audience and the servile devotion of its fans. And that is exactly the case with Eraserhead.

While Stradlater goes out on a date with Jane, Holden waits for Stradlater at the dorm. Holden knows when Stradlater is home before Stradlater even walks through the door: “Anyway, the corridor was all linoleum and all, and you could hear his goddam footsteps coming right towards the room.” (40) Holden gives a detailed description of the hallway and Stradlater’s footsteps so the reader can experience a similar uncomfortable sensation. Holden is afraid to grow up, and does not want to face the reality of adulthood: “Holden’s inability to save Allie from death fuels his desire to rescue innocence from anything that threatens it, including the corruptions of adult sexuality and money.” (Austin Allen) He wants to experience sex;
This term is used to “refer to the kind of rapid shift to a dramatized presentation of anterior events or memories” and flashbacks were initiated by the film industry (Rong 3). Another name for the flashback is analepsis, and, according to Fludernik (34), in such cases, “prior happenings are recounted, often as part of something the hero/heroine remembers”. On the other hand, some scholars distinguish flashback and analepsis as separate terms, for the former is primarily used in cinema, while the latter is common in literary works (Chatman 64). Flashbacks help authors to retell some past events that happened before the present time in the novel or short story. However, another definition of analepsis describes “any evocation after the fact of an event that took place earlier than the point in the story where we are at any given moment” (Genette 40).
It was a film that changed the history of cinema, introducing a very talented filmmaker and several acting legends in the telling of a story of a Sicilian Crime Family. The most memorable scene in the film is the opening scene of the movie which is also my choice of scene to elaborate on mise-en-scene.
Unlike any of the other Hamlet movies, Hawke gives his famous speech inside of a Blockbuster movie store. The movie was directed so that Hawke begins by thinking this all in his head before transitioning to giving the speech out loud. The point at which he begins to talk aloud is when Hamlet says “there’s the rub, for in that sleep of death what dreams may come” (3.1.73-74). The reason is because Hamlet is worried about if he will dream after death and that he will have no control over these dreams. Therefore, Hawke begins talking at this point because he comes back to reality and realizes that the unknowns to death are scary.

For example, when going to the movie theater to see a movie about their father’s death, the children of Bobby Shatford find that they were completely deleted. The movie shows Shatford’s wife, but the existence of his children are never mentioned. This then erases not only their existence, but any connection Bobby Shatford had with his children; they are cut out of the story of their father’s life. Although The Perfect Storm as a film is a work of fiction and therefore entitled to fictional alterations, the film’s use of real people’s names and stories unfairly villainizes real people’s remembrance, romanticizes their tribulations, and capitalizes off their tragedies. Often times, true stories that happen within human lives do not fit into an ideal narrative for a film.
Specifically, when Nick first goes to one of Gatsby’s parties. When Nick and Jordan meet up you get a sense of interest more than you do when watching the movie which just makes it seem like they are simply just friends (Luhrmann), but in the book Nick makes it seem more like a relationship (Fitzgerald, 46-47). Now while the book provides more emotion on Nick’s behave I found that the movie provided a better picture on the emotions of the other
A couple of the effects are how I view certain types of movies, and how I spend time with others. I started getting into movies when I was in 8th grade. Before 8th grade, I never went out to see movies, and I didn’t know anything about movies. Then my brother and I decided we wanted to see a movie, so went to the theater. The movie we saw was the last Harry
