In Edward Scissorhands, the music varies throughout the whole movie. In the beginning, when Peg is walking through his mansion, the music is dark and mysterious, misleading you into thinking something bad is about to happen, but throughout the scene, the sound starts to take on a more quirky tone. This quirkiness helps you understand Edward and his disposition. The sound that Burton incorporates into his films is a very important part to understanding his movies and his personal
Cesare and Dr. Caligari were clad with make-up; around their eyes were outline in black eyeliner, lips were highlighted with black lipstick and their eyebrows were darken with eye shadow. Without the characters talking in their roles, the make-up let the onlooker’s intellect without the use of words. “The movements of Caligari depict him as an old mischievous miser. Cesare 's slow movements, which are void of expression, convey his characteristics of a vile somnambulist. Even the backdrops are painted and add to the expression of the characters and the scenes.” (THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI student journal entries Geeta
He gives off this unique unorthodox dark style and theme of everything is not what it seems,or don’t judge a book by it’s cover. He uses lighting and editing techniques in his scenes to give you movies that shed a new light on the way we perceive the characters and scenes. Mr.Burton uses lighting in all of his movies to really show you it’s his movies because the way he uses it adds a spin to how we view it. In Charlie in the Chocolate Factory he portrays Charlie’s house as a dark dilapidated building that looks abandon like no one could live there or something could be lurking there. When he then shows us the inside it is run down and sparsely lit but it has the most loving, wise, and caring characters.
Secondly, Tim Burton uses costuming as a device in his films to portray his unique style. In his film Edward Scissorhands, his peculiar style is shown through the main character’s wardrobe. Edward, the main character, has uncontrollable, big black hair, and stitched leather clothes. In addition to his crazy black hair and distinct clothes, his hands are made up of many pairs and pieces of scissors, and he has a pale complexion that contains many scars. Burton’s style is shown in Edward because this character is dark, mysterious, and scary.
Both like to experiment with the formal possibilities of a film’s medium, so a gangster genre likes The Fallen Angles interestingly focuses on a hard-to-related theme about human relation. The Fallen Angles also seems to pay homage to the film noir. According to Shin and Gallagher, film noir is to use a dark tone to tell thing (125). The film is set in the dark so a
Burton’s creative style is best conveyed through his use of low key lighting, close ups, and diegetic music. Burton uses low key lighting to create suspense, which adds to his creepy style. An example would be when Peg (one of the main characters in Edward scissor hands) is running up the stairs and there is little light. By using low key lighting in a scene like that
It appeared the building was possessed by some evil power (Kubrick suggested it could be because the house was built on the Native Americans’ cemetery) that killed some of visitors and workers. The spirit or demon was interested in Danny’s abilities, but the boy used them to call help and save himself and his mother. Jack died (froze to death in the movie) and joined the ranks of people affected by the Overlook Hotel. Kubrick’s The Shining can be called the most famous screen adaptation of this novel. This status remains despite the fact the director cut and changed some aspects of the original story.
For one, neo-noir used more “modern circumstances and technology, which were typically absent or unimportant in the classic film noir.” (CITE). Additionally, neo-noir films usually employ unconventional plot devices and camera movements. And unlike classic film noirs tendency to draw the viewer into the protagonist 's life and building a relationship, neo-noir constantly reminds the viewer they are just watching a film. Themes of “identity crisis, memory issues and subjectivity” are all common in neo-noir
Christopher Nolan has a set style of directing which we see echoed throughout his films. The films are filled with ambiguity and unease, which are partially transmitted through journeys of identity construction and endings. We get the recurring central question of hero or antihero.The antagonist and protagonist in Nolan’s films are mostly mirror images of each other. Nolan is known to create great juxta positioning, especially in showing good vs. evil. We can see how his directing skills are used in the films of the Dark Knight Trilogy and the Dunkirk trailer.
The documentary will show the differences with the help of examples from, mostly, the two films mentioned above.
