This movie detained the top position for the fifty years until it cut down to succeeding following Vertigo (1958). The movie “Citizen Kane” is typically admired for its obscured plot, packed with the flashbacks that drag feet of the viewers towards the chronology of the life of the Kane, its astonishing performances; its spectacular technical stunts and aerial tricks and its deep-concentrated photography. A small range of if any among the technical possessions are completely unique to the Kane, although Orson Welles and his crew’s masterly use of the so many of them in single movie has built the “Citizen Kane” and weight on almost the whole things that came later than.

More than any director Hitchcock depended on his actors for his films. Hitchcock’s ambivalent films required complex characterisations and we have seen the most brilliant performances through Teresa Wright as Charlie in The Shadow of a Doubt (1943), Jessica Tandy as Mrs Brenner in The Birds (1963). Hitchcock utilized the flexibility and range of actors like Cary Grant and James Stewart which made the characters memorable. Excellent character delineations of Cary Grant can be seen in films such as North by Northwest (1959) and To Catch a Thief (1955). And James Stewart in films like Rear Window (1954), Vertigo (1958), Rope (1948) and the American version of The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956).
His story was so devastating but inspiring, that it had to be told the right way. As Michael grew up in the rough part of Memphis, he struggled until Leigh Ann came into the picture. Both characters are the focus point in movie, as the novel. The author of The Blind Side Michael Lewis, and director of the movie John Lee Hancock both did a fascinating job in their respective areas with the motion picture winning a golden globe as the novel became a New York Times
One of the oldest and classic films in the beautiful world of cinema, Citizen Kane, has been released in 1941 by Orson Welles (Charles Foster Kane). Even though this film is an old movie, but its events, ideas, and mysteries are still on the lookout for the viewers to look at and figure out. When we talk about Citizen Kane, we are talking about a film with many ideas and a convergence of several symbols and inspirations that make the individuals think a lot about the purpose or meaning that the writer, director, producer and hero of the movie want. Perhaps the biggest and most controversial symbol of the film is “Rosebud”, the word that Kane says before he died. The film returns with flashback to the life of Charles Foster Kane, who grew up
The movie Psycho by the Oscar nominated and "master of suspense" Alfred Hitchcock is by far the best suspense/thriller movie that I have ever seen. It is amazing how a movie filmed in 1960 in black and white can turn out to be better than a movie filmed with color in the twenty first century. How Alfred Hitchcock thought of ways to create suspense and infused them in the movie is truly amazing. The techniques that I saw Alfred Hitchcock use to create suspense in Psycho were different camera shots and angles, creepy music, jump scares, and foreshadowing. The different camera shots and angles that Alfred Hitchcock used were the principal techniques that created suspense.
Love & Espionage Formerly screened in New York on November 1942 and largely released in January 1943, Casablanca, a moving love story consisting of many emotional turns and slightly similar to the chaos surrounding WWII.

Hitchcock was born in England 1889 and moved to the United States to join the Hollywood film industry in 1940. He created over fifty films throughout his career citing ?my love for cinema is stronger than morality (Truffaut & Hitchcock, 1983, p. 20). Hitchcock often had reoccurring devices throughout his films like the famous MacGuffin that would drive the plot. ?Hitchcock discovered just the right mixture of humor, suspense, and revelation when using the MacGuffin? (Digou, 2003, p. 5).

After watching Fyodor Bondarchuk’s two part film, the Inhabited Island, and using my past knowledge of one of my favorite genre, I became convinced that this is another instantiation of the typical western superhero journey due to its character development of the main protagonist, Maxim, and its use of special effects. I postulate that Bondarchuk used the classic novel by the popular Strugatsky brothers to create an action filled, western-inspired blockbuster film which played a functional role as a piece of Russian propaganda to distract the public from an accumulation of certain geopolitical events during the time of its release. As we initially meet our hero, Maxim, we learn that he is a space explorer from a futuristic earth where the space race has evolved to exploring alien planets. In the first few scenes
5 Mar. 2016. . Aldridge’s essential claim in this article is that even 25 years after publication, Catch 22 has remained relevant and ubiquitous due to its many revelations that come only after reading. One of Aldridge’s main points in this article is that while Catch-22 is known for its satire, it ultimately ends with a realization of the terror war encompasses. Aldridge makes such an eloquent statement that sums his exclamation up, “as the comedy is finally neutralized by the weightier force of terror and death, the fateful ubiquity of Catch-22 finally eclipses all demands for logic and sanity”.
