Images of black and white to portray an eerie atmosphere. David lynch creates perplexingly ambiguous worlds and dreamlike situations which is the basis of many if not all of his works.

Even though the Elephant man and Eraserhead would be catagorised as being visually inspired by German Expressionism, they hold their differences aesthetically. The Elephant man is quite tame in a Lynchian sense seeing that it 's so straightforward in it 's story telling and Eraserhead is more obscure and cryptic.
Ionesco put his focus on the tragedy of language. In fact he bothers the audience with the disintegration of language, which is one of his main targets of this play. All over The Bald Soprano can be analyzed as a parody where the author mocks about the universal bourgeoisie which, to reveal a dehumanized mankind which became spiritually seen empty. Therefore Ionesco used the language as an important implement to highlight this dehumanization. In concrete the language of the Smiths and Martins is indeed old fashioned and dry adding slogans and a lot of simple expressions.
Additionally, the mechanicals misuse the English language; “If we offend, it is with our good will” (5.1.108); use exaggeration, “die die die die die” (5.1.290); and display an excessively literal approach and attempt to destroy dramatic illusion, with Bottom (as Pyramus) breaking character to explain what is occurring: “You shall see it will fall pat as I told you” (5.1.183). Ultimately, the mechanicals display that they are unsuited to this craft, and highlight their lack of grace with the English language, compared

As Carl Richardson points out. “realism is only possible when the power of the image is unleashed with naked honesty. Distortion, doctoring, and the exaggeration of the subject material make realism possible.” (13, Richardson) While the influence of German Expressionism is apparent, filmmakers borrowed heavily from French Poetic realism , as an art movement, emerged from the socio-poltical atmosphere of post-WWI France and gained precedence in the early 1930’s.
Both Dulce et Decorum Est and Mametz Wood present the incompetent results of war. Dulce et Decorum Est indicates the horrible facts and deaths in war. Moreover, Mametz Wood highlights how precious life is and how easily it can be lost as a result of battle. In this poem “Dulce et decorum Est”, Owen portrays the deadly effects of conflict through the use of metaphor: “as under a green sea, I saw him drowning”.

The self portrait is inspired by the Bacons own awareness of his own mortality. The piece was created after Bacons lover Peter lacy who was a raging alcoholic, beat him up. The tortured flesh and slightly exaggerated bruised colour palette work together to expose the simple reality of the fragility of flesh. Bacon consistently explored the human limit, and wanted to show the world what human beings were when there was no fame and glam involved. Bacons use of the element ‘line’, in particular organic line, can be seen with the oval swelling of the eye and the curvature of the jawline.
