Some of his most acclaimed work has been from movies that were based on true stories. When Washington does these real life stories he finds characters that have over come many difficulties in their lives and end up winning. So by Washington starring in roles where he always ends up a winner he is creating an image in the viewers mind that he is a winner. When the audience leaves the movie they remember what great things Washington did to turn out the way he did. Many people have a hard time separating movies from the real world and some people assume the character is that person in real life Denzel Washington is the first African American male to win an Academy Award for the Best Male Actor category.
Fellini’s Departure from Neo-realism In my opinion, the films, “Nights of Cabiria” and “La Dolce Vita” to be the best films our class have seen so far. It left me in awe and absolutely stunned. They were both beautifully produced, presented well and unmistakably Fellini fims “La Dolce Vita” gives us glimpse of a filmmaker that has moved far neo-realist his roots. The “Nights of Cabiria” had many more neo-realist elements than “La Dolce Vita” and therefore was a departure from neo-realism. “Nights of Cabiria” had some of the classic elements of neo-realism showing Cabria’s poor and broken troubles, she is just an ordinary person and throughout the movie you are just simply looking into her life, also there is a feel of onset location.
.) Many would call Morricone a musical genius, and he is just that. He did an outstanding job at translating the emotions he felt when he chose music for this film. When we watch movies, the music plays a very important role in how we connect to the movie and the emotion or feelings that we the directors are trying to portray. Music was such a key component that went into making this movie.
The director of Blood Diamond directed this film also. James Newton Howard scored Blood Diamond as well. The director, Edward Zwick, asked James Newton Howard asked him to score Defiance, because he liked how well James Newton Howard scored Blood Diamond.

I am saying those people did an amazing job to make this film look like it is in the 1960s. When I looked at the dressing and makeup, I can imagine their life in the 1960s. It is a perfect match. "It’s an exceptional film, not because of its protagonists’ impressive triumphs, but because it honors their struggle"
When discussing a film, audiences will recall its story line or characters to exemplify what the film was about. With an audience so focused on narration, a film’s structure is not decided on lightly. According to Luhr and Lehman, because a film’s narrative is crucial to its success, directors “have mastered a long-established and highly profitable tradition of narrative filmmaking- the classical Hollywood style” (29). The classical Hollywood style of narration requires that a film’s “plot should have a clear forward direction” (Luhr, Lehman 29). Every event should lead cleanly into the next to join in a unified whole.
The Culture Industry and A Walk to Remember Adam Shankman’s A Walk to Remember has proved to be a favorite of audiences across the country. The movie’s legitimacy as something artistic, however, is bound to be questioned by some. As a part of the film industry, A Walk to Remember provides good means to explore the true motives of the culture industry using the opposing views of Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer and Gerald Graff. Theorists Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer would see this movie as nothing more than a new spin on the same old story. Gerald Graff, on the other hand, would commend A Walk to Remember as an art form that gives rise to many debates and arguments about the movie and that gives viewers a chance to prove their intellectualism outside of the academic realm.
“The World’s Fastest Indian” (2005) is an insightful movie directed by the world renowned director, Roger Donaldson. A character I enjoyed in this film was Burt Munro. I enjoyed this character because of his high, uplifting spirit of determinat ion. Burt Munro is important because he reveals the ideas of ‘Manawanui (Perseverance),’ ‘Realising Your Dreams’ and ‘Overcoming Obstacles.’ These ideas are seen through the film techniques: dialogue, lighting and types of camera shots and angles. Burt Munro is a character I enjoyed because of his total dedication and wholeheartedness towards his dreams, living a day at a time.
