Burton uses sound in his movies to do exactly that. In his movies, he uses non-diegetic sound to help build suspense and to entertain the viewer. In Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Burton builds suspense by using very intense music that only the viewer can hear as Jake goes to open a door, thus making the viewer sit on the edge of their seat waiting for the next couple of seconds to define the fate of the character. In Big Fish, Burton uses a dark and menacing musical tone while Edward is fighting with the big fish for his wedding ring back; then, right when he released the fish, the music changed to a mystical and happy tone to express Edward’s triumph and to add to the beauty of that scene. In Edward Scissorhands, the music varies throughout the whole movie.
Agent Dewey's concepts exclude each other, he does not want to believe them at all. He wants to believe that a dangerous, mentally ill and disturbed man committed these atrocities in cold blood. With the change up in the events, Truman Capote is forced to venture deeper into the rabbit hole that is the US citizen psyche.

Edward is often the victim of people’s actions or is tricked into doing bad deeds. This is shown when Edward is tricked into robbing Jim’s parent’s house. When the alarm goes off and the door shuts, the camera focuses on Edward’s face to show the audience that he is scared and desperate to escape. The music instantly becomes faster and full of dread. This shows the audience that something bad is about to happen and creates an atmosphere of tension and makes the audience want to know what happens next.

Macbeth begins to go insane after he murders King Duncan at the beginning of the play. Although he did it for a gain of power, he still feels very guilty. Macbeth starts saying weird things about what he heard, “Methought I heard a voice cry “Sleep no more!” to all the house. “Glamis hath murdered sleep, and therefore Cawdor Shall sleep no more.

One of the many of his definable cinematic devices that Nolan presents in his work is the theme of splintered identity. In Nolan’s world, characters, often the protagonists, suffer from a form of existential crises, being unable to clarify their true self-image. Nolan’s obsession on this rather ‘unusual’ idea (in the Hollywood industry) was initially introduced in his primary feature film, following. In following, the protagonist who is simply known as the Young Man, frankly speaking, has no identity. Without a proper career or name, the Young Man finds himself spending his time by stalking ordinary people.
It appears at the end of the movie where Big Daddy and Brick talk in the basement. They talk about Big Daddy’s lack of love for his family and about all the mendacity between them. These conflicts get resolved in the end with this scene “Big Daddy: I’ve got the guts to die. What I want to know is if you’ve got the guts to live?” “Brick: I don’t know.” “Big Daddy: We can start by helping each other up these stairs.” (Brooks). This gave the movie’s end more of a happier ending then the book.
I fully acknowledge what Remarque is showing his readers about how war is a fast and terrible way for young men to be completely changed, scarred, and grieving for the rest of their lives. Paul especially, was dramatically changed after seeing Kemmerich, Kat, Albert, Muller, and Tjaden suffer so dramatically. The scene in the novel where he first goes back home to see his family, brought out the way they can no longer adapt to such peaceful and safe conditions. Paul was so anxious, and felt as an outsider because of how peaceful it was at home, he did not know how to react, neither did he know what to do. His condition was so serious that he was basically depressed at the place where he should have been happiest.
The movie begins with a fake sick Ferris and his concerned parents in his bedroom. Once Ferris is able to convince his mother and father he is sick, they don’t allow him to go to school. But once they leave, he jumps out of bed and speaks to the audiences and one of the first things out of his mouth is, “‘...that’s childish and stupid but so is high school,’” [all you need is one set of quotes here] [start a new sentence here]his distaste for high school is reflected right off the bat. Bueller’s attitude towards education is very similar to students in this generation and that is because education in the 21st century is a mess. Schools are focused on standardized testing, and regular testing which make up a large portion of the students grades.
