As I read, Paul L. Dunbar’s “We Wear the Mask” I was interested in how he described what a mask represents. It is true that a mask was used to hide a person’s pain, emotion, or mood before the day known as Halloween developed. I love how Paul refers the use of the masks as a black or white person’s escape from other peoples’ worried faces. No one can ever understand what someone else is going through. People can never truly speak their truth or let out their suffering.

I vaguely remember the Disney princess movie series I watched as a child at the age of 7 or 8 years old. Every princess in the film was able to find the prince charming also that is an ultimate goal of the happy-ending fairy tale. But the audiences which are watching this film are the young girls with the unfocused mind, first awakening in loved kids with an ignorant mind. They have not much knowledge at the age of 7; the children don’t care about what the film wants to tell them eventually. But what are the messages people who for or against with strong or weak female characteristic expect an answer from a princess movie?
The low key lighting used helps the viewer perceive that Willy’s childhood was rather gloomy and unpleasant. In addition, the lighting also adds an ominous or suspenseful mood to the scene. Another example of the effects of lighting is found in Edward Scissorhands when Peg takes Edward back into town and the scene is flooded with high key lighting and colorful houses. By flooding the scene with brightness and color Burton creates a light-hearted and cheerful environment which creates a cheerful mood and is a pleasure to the eyes. The bright lighting used also displays the difference in color from the town to Edward’s castle which was dark and dreary.
The Wedding Banquet: Same Sex Relationships and Beyond “I’ll survive”, then Wai Tung responded, “not if Wei Wei keeps cooking.” The film “The Wedding Banquet” was packed with hilarious scenes, which at the same time, depicts the allegory of the modern view on same sex relationships.

The Film “Citizen Kane” challenged the traditional narrative and technical elements of traditional Hollywood by providing an illusion of movement and expressive use of light in multiple scenes. In this film the narrator expressed that Charles Foster Kane utilized his strengths which was media, newspapers that is how he reached the people, how he could manipulate the readers to read whatever story he wanted to showcase. What was very noticeable to me was mostly that the story was being told in a non-chronological order, throughout the story the course of events are sort of shuffled around for the viewer to decipher the plot while exploring how, when and why Kane died and everything leading to his death. This particular filmmaker by choosing to utilize the non-chronological approach was able to use flashbacks of his life, plenty of voice-over work to summarize the plot.
