The music is woven throughout the film and complements the story like bullets to guns. Additionally, there are techniques like the animation in the opening credits which seems unique for its time. There also still images of the characters in the opening credits that show the characters that are to come. Furthermore, Leone has a technique which displays Blondies firing accuracy has he is able to shoot Angel Eyes into a grave followed by his pistol and hat. Lastly, amongst the many unique techniques that Sergio Leone uses are the constant use of the “there are two kinds of people” analogy used multiple times in the film in conversations between Blondie and
Perks of Being A Wallflower is a unique film. It keeps you listening for new sounds and what wacky things might be coming out of the people’s mouths. It is not only the sound that keeps the attention on the movie, but also the sight. Seeing what is going along to the different styles and genres of musical scores is essential in receiving the full effect the film can deliver. Being able to sense that the film is expressing anger or heartache through the scores and the body language of the characters in such a disciplined manner is appealing.
Citizen Kane is definitely a complex movie with all of the contextuality that is beyond preliminary comprehension. Mulvey’s article expressed how important it was to go back and look for hints and hidden meanings throughout the mise-en-scène of the movie. These multiple layers of narrative serve a psychologic purpose to retain the viewer in the diegetic world of the film while feeding continuously an enormous amount of information. One of the interesting things the article mentioned was how the camera’s movement which “functions both literally and figuratively” (101). This actually plays out quite well considering we are at times in the viewpoint of reporter in search of the true meaning of “Rosebud”.
The movies Inside Man and The Usual Suspects, both had similar themes and were different at the same time. I felt the common themes that stuck out to me the most in both movies were devising, karma, power and deception. Examples from both movies can be used in order to prove that these four themes exist. However, the dialogue, philosophy and the conviction represented in both movies were dissimilar. Devising was a major theme in both movies because every single detail was planned thoroughly.
Rochaster is a significant character in the film because he is one of the main characters. In the 1943 version of the film Orson Welles plays his character and in the 1996 version of the film William Hurt plays Mr. Rochaster. Orson Welles’s performance as Mr. Rochaster seems more realistic, Holden agrees with this idea: Mr. Hurt 's subdued, introverted portrayal is out of sync with the rest of the film 's tone of discreet grandeur. In two earlier versions of the story, Rochester was played by Orson Welles and George C. Scott as a more ominous patriarchal figure… Instead of conjuring thunderstorms of half-suppressed emotion, his face registers a wary, embittered angst.”(Holden) In the old version of the film we see that Mr. Rochaster as an earnest person as Orson Welles’ interpretation but Hurt’s interpretation of Mr. Rochaster is more like a kind person in this case we could say that 1943 version of the film did better than the modern version. Characters, plot of the films and visuals in two different versions of Jane Eyre movies are compared and which one is depicted these aspects better than the other one is shown.
In films made by a director labeled as an auteur, spectators are able to associate the films together and may already harbor certain expectations because of the identifiable pattern and trends each of the films posses. In earlier accounts of the term, an auteur was studied through something called an auteur theory, which identifies the director as the primary author and creator of his or her film. A well-known auteur that is commonly referred to when discussing its concepts is Alfred Hitchcock. His films contain similar structures and motifs, which manifest the authorship he takes in the films he would make and produce. Hitchcock proves to be an auteur and a renowned “master of suspense” because of his employment of continuity editing
It 's the rawest way i 've seen the message everything happens for a reason put out in the world. Both the movie and the book have put me in a very emotional state. First the book then the movie is the order i found makes more sense. I recommend them both for
H. Lawrence occupies an ambiguous position in British culture, simultaneously associated as he is in the public consciousness with the realms of high art, popular romantic fiction and soft porn.” (Taylor 105) It is why his novels were of a huge importance when it comes to film adaptations, since they were created boldly, without a censure, exploring the relationships between men and women, and even some homosexual and bisexual. The ambiguity is a product of the history of the publication of his books and journalism. It is reproduced each time one of his novels or stories is translated into a stage play, a radio play, a television play, an audio tape, a film or a video. At the same time, it is that ambiguity which makes the play, tape, film, or video commercially viable.” (Ibid) The ambiguity of Lawrence’s works that Neil Taylor discusses in his essay is the ambiguity related to the previously mentioned topics that were developed in his
In the films Juno and The Limey they are both extremely different but both have the sense of drama in the movie with the certain effects added. The camera shots and they way they have edits the film and lighting gave details in the story which is trying to show a bigger picture. In this essay I want to focus on the angles of the camera and the lighting and how they are the same and how they differ. In Juno they use the angle of the camera to really focus on certain points of the story. A scene I want to first focus on is the scene from Junos point of view while she is driving to go interview the people who will be adopting her baby.
2 / 12 Although the novel and film differ slightly in regards to the plot the same cinematic techniques are used. I will firstly discuss the cinematic techniques used in the Bertoluccis film which has made the film all the more intriguing such as style, lighting, flash backs, camera angles........................ 3 / 12 Structure and the language of literature and cinema Il Conformista is narrated in a flowery style, where Bertolucci expresses his most inner thoughts mostly through the means of mood and visuals Like the tremendous fascist architecture constructions and the workplaces of authority that contain towering corridors that make visitors seem completely insignificant. The cinematic technique that I particularly thought brought the film to life was Bertoluccis use of flashbacks. They add
Stories have been told, and passed through from one generation to the other making it the main way of communicating our understanding of particular values, attitudes and beliefs. Films are the contemporary version of stories. We can now observe the values, attitudes and beliefs in much more detail than ever before with clearer pictures, more detailed and vibrant colours. The Power of One is intendedto confront the audience of the horrific times when racism was so brutal and unfair to those who are from different cultures. The film The Power of One is based off the book written by Bryce Courtenay and was then directed by John G. Avildsen.
