Maurice Jarre, one of the most prolific film music composers in the 20th century, can very much be the guy who the past generation can trace every single tune they find themselves humming unintentionally, to quote The New York Times: "[He was] among the most sought-after composers in the movie industry." One doesn 't get that much attention unless they wholeheartedly deserve it, at least back then. Despite Jarre mainly composing for concert works, he 's mostly known for his film scores. He had one of the earliest composer/director cooperations with director David Lean, composing for most of his movies, including Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago, and the last movie Lean ever directed before he died, Ghost.
Buñuel diverted from this typical ‘pleasurable’ progression of classical cinema throughout his entire career. The Spanish director “was a singular figure in world cinema, and a consecrated auteur from the start. ”(Russell, 2005) His narrative experimentation was consistently ahead of its time with his films resonating with audiences due to their provocative nature and rebellion against the stylistic and narrative conventions of classical cinema, which were cemented into the normality of society. Born into the foundation of cinema itself; “his work moves from surrealist experimentation in the 1920s, through commercial comedies and melodrama in the 1950s, to postmodernist cine d’art in the 1960s and ’70s.”
The more clearly I can see its physical manifestation, the more I am stirred by its mystery. It is one of the miracles of cinema that in 1941 a first-time director; a cynical, hard-drinking writer; an innovative cinematographer, and a group of New York stage and radio actors were given the keys to a studio and total control, and made a masterpiece. “Citizen Kane” is more than a great movie; it is a gathering of all the lessons of
The concept of hero and villain has existed for as long as the histories of humanity could remember. However, for the past years film has become one of the dominant media of our culture and history to foretell the epic about heroes and their saga. Many film made their appearance by daringly imposing the famous heroic epic which eventually made into many versions due to how popular the epic, by reflecting on that then it is logical to see many Ramayana and Mahabharata versions streaming through the televisions or the cinemas. Through the time we may find that the hero we know has become more “human” and more fallible over time, those heroes are constantly changing entity; the same concept of heroicness traits but with different settings and
The dilemma of deciphering a man 's life after it has finished is the focal subject of Citizen Kane. Subsequent to seeing an inside and out, taped account of Kane 's life, the question is asked: Who, truly, was Charles Foster Kane? It is perceived that a man isn 't the sum of the entirety of his accomplishments, belonging, or activities, however that something more profound must drive him. The new, refined, and excellent perfect work of art, Citizen Kane (1941), is presumably the world 's most well known and very appraised film, with its numerous noteworthy scenes and exhibitions, realistic and account systems and exploratory developments in regards to its photography, altering, and sound.

This was very effective as it was new to the time in which the movie was released. Due to the film’s critical success, Citizen Kane is found on majority of “greatest films of all time” lists this critical success is due to the films major advancements in cinematography and how it daringly addresses mutual social contexts.

Deep analytical and critical knowledge of the text is demonstrated through its advancements in cinematography and dejectic message, due to the RKO giving Wells total control over the film. These reasons have impacted me and I personally believe that my study of Citizen Kane has impacted my life, in multiply ways and it needs to stay on the syllabus to enable future students to experience and receive the full benefit’s from module

From the brilliant work of the Citizen Kane (1941) with all the spotlights to his last work of classic film noir the Touch of Evil (1958). The contributions of Orson Welles (Orson Welles) on transiting the traditional Hollywood film style and developing the film noir in the 1940s is irreplaceable.

“Stand up for what is right, even if you are standing alone- Suzy Kassem” is a phrase that was often posted in my classrooms when I was in grade schools.

In the movie High Noon, the Marshall, Will Kane, is faced with the reality that he may have to stand alone to protect a town against a killer, Frank Miller, and the killer’s gang.

Frank Miller is coming back for vengeance and even though Kane was newlywed that day and is technically no longer Marshall,
I believe that basing the film on his life brought both advantages and disadvantages. To start off, I think the advantages of this was that Charles Foster Kane was such a recognizable character and people would be familiar with who William Randolph Hearst.

From the film not getting publicity, this led to people thinking that the film was a bad move, which probably made the views drop down.
