Auteur Theory “ Everything has already been done, every story has been told, and every scene has been shot. Its our job to do it better.” This quote represents the meaning of the auteur theory because every film is a representation of a director’s creative way in which they use various filmmaking techniques such as narration, cinematography, and mise-en-scene. Both Hitchcock and Traffaut use various filmmaking techniques in their films Psycho and The 400 blows. Hitchcocks Psycho is more suspenseful because they use cautions scenes with sound.
In this film Sean clearly showed that he understood how hard Walter worked. He knew Walter put a great amount of care and effort into what he did, including the handling of Sean’s photos. In the movie, there are a few scenes that show the fact that most of Walter’s colleagues did not
Branagh and Wheden’s versions of Much Ado About Nothing differ in a number of ways. Branagh takes on the literal meaning of the play and exemplifies it with over the top acting and a dreamlike setting. Due to this over the top setting Wheden down plays the film to make it into reality. I would personally recommend the Branagh film, because it is easy to enjoy and immediately draws the viewer into the story. Writing about both films grew my appreciation for Whedens version, but that appreciation would not have a developed without view Branagh’s.
Classical cinema is defined by what we all know and love about the contemporary films produced by Hollywood today. It is conversant with audiences because they are able to identify and expect its traits. The narrative form influences every part of filmic representation; its linear nature must propel its action through “psychologically defined, goal orientated characters” that undergo a “chain of events in a cause-effect relationship occurring in time and space.” (Bordwell, 2008) The foundation of the system of creating these classical structures relies on a passive audience who can be easily manipulated into the narrative, through the identification of its main characters, and their perils, which they are ultimately familiar with, and are
Throughout the film, Oliver Parker cuts many lines that are in the play, but he makes up for them in adding a few more scenes to give context for the watcher. By adding a few scenes here and there Parker is able to give the audience a visual effect that a play
After studying the characters more, Sean Parker and Gatsby surprisingly have similarities in the book and the movie. Meyer Wolfsheim tells us about Gatsby that, “He went to Oggsford College in England…” “It’s one of the most famous colleges in the world” (page #). In the book it was hard to tell whether or not things were true or false due to all of the lies people had made up about Gatsby, but this one was in fact true. Gatsby had gone to Oggsford, but he had not finished.
The film is impeccably put together, and there are a multitude of ways in which every element of it contributes to what the Coen brothers are trying to tell the viewers. The narrative is intricately woven between a beautiful use of lighting and colors and a subtle, but extremely effective soundtrack. The story unfolds chronologically; each scene leads to the next. Often though, the audience doesn’t know really know the importance of a scene, or what the motivation of the characters were, until the next one. The directors keep the audience intrigued this, but rewards you with the answer soon after, which contributes to the suspenseful nature of the
portraying Tony Stark in “Iron Man”. (Which not surprisingly, Jon Favreau also made.) Neel Sethi did very well for the most part, there were times where I was blown away and other times he played the “child actor card” a little too often, but I was impressed. It was a lot better than most could do at 12. Mowgli was so inventive in this movie, he had clear purpose that the rest of the jungle couldn’t meet in this movie.
The use of this character would have had a greater impact and give the film a strong feeling of authority. In conclusion, the film was a great tool to explain what happened in the Longest Day, but it failed to give the audience an entertaining film. The film can work as a tool to study history and to show the struggles and horrific events of the war. Although this may be true, the audience would forget about the film in a couple of days due to the lack of feelings and emotions that

Holden remembers going to the museum as a happy time with his teacher because the museum is resistant to change. The museum also makes him happy because “only thing that [is] different [is the person]” (Salinger 135), whereas “[someone can] go there a thousand times, and that Eskimo [is] still just [finishing] catching those two fish” (Salinger 135). However, he chooses to stay outside in his most recent visit because he is afraid that there is a chance that the museum goes through changes since his childhood. Holden knows that if the museum changes, he can get hurt, so he makes a conscious decision to not go in, even though his reasoning is subconscious.
When suddenly, Myrtle’s husband came in guns a blazing, he kills Gatsby and then himself. Almost nobody showed up to Gatsby 's funeral, except Nick and his father who surprisingly came to show their respects. Even though Gatsby and Daisy were wealthier than most people, their money only seemed to buy them regret and sorrow. It is clear to see from the chain of events that occured money can’t buy happiness. Gatsby is a man idolized by his status and success.
How does one identify themselves as Native American in an urban environment? What is tribal identity? Does it have to do with blood quantum? Or do you have to be an enrolled member? Is one still considered a Native American if they intermarry with another race?

The midnight mission first opens its door in 1914, this area has been plagued with the same issues for far too long. It’s amazing that these types of issues are ignored by the majority of society. The midnight mission has a wonderful program to give people that are on skid row a purpose again.
