The idea of the film is to tell a true story but in that respect, there are countless fiction films that are based on true events with actors as well. These kind of choices make for a good documentary but shift the ethics of what it means to tell a story directly or with
George Melies said in the film “Hugo” that, “I would recognize the sound of a movie projector anywhere.”(Hugo). People watch films nearly all the time nowadays, but only few still remember the history of cinema. How it began, or how it created those effects of enchanted stories. Based on a novel released on 2007, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, the film “Hugo” contains historical interpretation on the nearly forgotten art in times of economic hardship and damage of war to people. Using the enchanted fantasy style, Martin Scorsese brought back the history of the film to the young people in the presents that need to remember how all dreams of film started.
Instead of being the documentary like film that it would have been, (had the writers and producers stuck to the original story) they decided to turn it into an action movie. I think that this is partly because action movies tend to sell a lot better, as well as capture the attention of most people. In the film, we got to see more of people interacting with each other during the global chaos, as opposed to having a deeper focus on the zombies themselves. I think that film wouldn’t have been as good as it is, had they tried to focus more on the same things the book focused on (the zombies, for example). Had they made it like the novel, it might have become
The element of lighting is a sophisticated element to a movie. It has the power to control what you see and also overwhelm you when it needs to. During my discovery of this movie, I found that colors told the story just as much as the dialogue. It just goes to show that the most significant films cover all the ends of telling a story through the medium of film. Now the fun part, the analyst of The Shawshank Redemption’s use of light and color in painting the picture of its theme of hope.
Gaudreault thought that “le cinema des premiers temps” sounded bad and awkward. He was hoping to find a new term that would work well both in French and English. The year after this discussion, Gunning worked with his assistant Adam Simon and “discussed the different ways genres addresses the cinematic spectator in early cinema” . Together, they developed a concept “the cinema of attractions”, using the work of Sergei Eisenstein. They introduced the concept to Gaudreault who loved it and thought it worked well both in French and English.
At some point in our lifetimes, we have been told that everything happens for a reason, and it is clearly true. Movies are produced for different purposes: to entertain the public and to teach an essential life lesson. When we watch a film, we are astonished by the action, story, and sounds of the film. This is how the producers entertain us. On the other hand, the producers use the characters in the film to educate us on life itself.
This might be the part where most of the eyes of the viewers are looking at. Ways in which the different characters are pictured has been seen, and there is looking at the screens with great infatuation for the characters to be getting more and more indulged in the movie and its realism. The magical realism is the reality of the different movies that are stereotypical of the age of the different people that have been used to portray the different characters and their motives. The connection of the two cultures and the folkloric one in the real time of the 21st century has to be the one that is getting connected. This changes the image of the film and gets the characters running as a role model in the movies train of thought.
When I watch movies, I generally only care about my own enjoyment and interest in the plot. However, it’s not always that simple. The soundtrack, the characters, the acting, the cinematography, these and many more aspects can have a huge impact on the viewer’s enjoyment. Wolf Children is one of those movies that I find adequately stimulating. Its absolutely superb animation, and above average characters do nothing but enhance that experience.
