In the movie Casablanca the use of Hemingway’s code Hero is used to show the aspects of film noir. The film noir shares characteristics with Hemingway’s code Hero like the disillusionment of society and the darker aspects of the human condition. Items from the code that are used in the movie is the idea of a man’s man in Rick Blaine and that he is always in control of the situation. The trait a man’s man is used to show the ideals of film noir in that it similarly has to do with lust and drinking. Rick is the Hemingway Hero in this movie because he truly is a man’s man.
The next day, she disappears and Jeff notices that her husband is acting strange and suspicious. Jeff’s curiosity ends up putting his life and others in danger, as the murderer realizes that Jeff knows what he has done. Hitchcock used many different film techniques to make Rear Window. Such techniques included camera angles, wardrobe, facial expressions, use of sound and lighting, the placement of the apartments, and the partial view through the windows. However, use of sound is particularly important to this movie.
For example when Oberst says "Don't give me any of your lip black boy" Virgil is more harmonious when reacting. Virgil in the novel is also more modest then that of the movie. His arrogance and self image in the movie lead him to be demanding and react with greater force. For example when Virgil is done looking at the body the first time he hands a white man his coat to deal with, showing that his conceitedness leads him to act insistent. Also he deals with racism differently.
These layers of suspense greatly add in looking into Tom’s head and understanding if Tom can comprehends the peril he put himself into. In the end, Tom brought the entire ordeal upon himself. Had he decided to not be so greedy and selfish, he would have gone out with his wife and enjoyed the night, rather than experiencing one of the most horrific events of his life. Instead, he finds himself on this narrow little ledge, very much regretting the past few decisions he had made. The author does a great job of making this apparent, and chooses to show it through irony, cause and effect, and suspense.
In the original film (Hitchcock) the old dark and colorless film, the creep music provide the viewers an idea that something wicked is about to happen. Therefore again both directors did provide enough action to carry over to each scene. In the remake the casting was truly wrong; For instance the infamous character Norman Bates, the psychopathic motel owner was played by fast talking, macho man Vince Vaughn. In the remake the Norman appears to be more of a sexual predator, whom would actually please himself as he watch Marion through a peephole in the shower scene; which gives the audience a different point of view about this film and van sant character Norman. However in the original version Anthony Perkins plays Norman Bates, who truly fit the character with calmer attitude, and good boy looks as Norman.
Less Is More In the film down by law, Jim Jarmusch as a director makes many unconventional choices when it comes to film mechanics. The classic field of view rules are broken, camera angles and distances are often obscure and the stylistic touches go along way in story-telling and conveying emotion and meaning. The specific scene that this essay deals with takes place in New Orleans Perish Prison. Jack and Zack (two wrongfully imprisoned men) are sitting on bunks across from each other. Both are bruised and frustrated due to a fight between them in the prior scene.
The only way he can demonstrate his feelings is by being angry at the world and mean. He says, “when petitioners came to my desk for information, I snarled at them and felt indescribably happy whenever I managed to make one of them feel miserable” (85). We can see that to the narrator making people feel miserable is a way to get a reaction from them and it is also empowering to have people have such a stronger reaction toward him and the things he does. Throughout the story, we can see that the unnamed narrator of Notes from Underground has trouble communicating with people. We can see this when he invites himself to the party his old school friends were throwing to a person whom he did not even like.
“He shouts, ‘Rhinotomy!’ Then he places a steel saw under his nose with the jagged edges facing towards it. His lips, black as his arms, tremble, which makes one think he is smiling. Then his arms move vigorously, with each movement he shouts desperately ‘Rhinotomy!’ As the jagged edges edge themselves into the nose, fresh blood begins seeping out” (Yu Hua 362). Being persecuted during the Revolution, he is unable to assimilate the terrifying memories into his experience which results in a lingering of his traumatic experience, and only through the practice of masochism can he free himself from the nightmare. Freud defined the term ‘traumatic’ as ‘any excitations from outside which are powerful enough to break through the protective shield’
The close-up shots in particular create suspense by manufacturing a sense of confinement/imprisonment for the characters, as well as the viewer. Hitchcock targets gender ideology in his films by plugging into man's supposed fear of being feminized. As such, Hitchcock often deals with male characters who are feminized/emasculated in some form or another. For example, the protagonist in Rear Window, a photographer, is confined to his apartment after breaking his leg taking an action shot at an automobile race. Questions of gender arise when analyzing Jeff's new passive, immobile role — one that is quite different from his prior role as that of an action photographer.
