It is while his mind is wandering when Ted Lavender gets shot. Cross cannot help but feel responsible for Lavender’s death.

However, use of sound is particularly important to this movie.

Discuss how film codes and conventions construct a representation of the monstrous in a film you have studied Richard Kelly’s film Donnie Darko released in 2001 presented audiences with a new idea and take on the conventional sci-fi drama examining themes of time travel, reality v illusions, religion, mental illness and questioning what people believe and why. Donnie Darko exploits the innate fear of dying alone and wanting to be remembered after you are gone. The film ends with Donnie sacrificing himself for the ones he loves and by default the world, but suggests that nobody will ever know about his sacrifice. It shows Donnie’s struggle with reality and represents the monstrous in most obvious physical form through the figure Frank, a giant nightmare like rabbit, and through several other characters within the film known as the ‘Manipulated Living’, in a figurative form expressed through the tangent reality in which Donnie lives throughout most of the film. Donnie Darko shows how the monstrous can be represented or misrepresented depending on the interpretation by the viewer.

Allende uses this story to convey the message that although many people believe they can avoid and bury the memories of their painful past, the distressing truth is by evading these recollections, people become buried themselves by these same heartbreaking memories. As we begin this touching story, the point of view is first person because the narrator, Rolf’s life companion, retells the story as she watches “the television cameras transmitted so often the unbearable image…” (Allende 57). However, the point of view transitions to third person limited omniscient when the narrator reveals the inner thoughts of the main character, “Rolf Carle directed, and kept talking to her without a thought for what he was saying…” (Allende 58). Although we are told what the main character is feeling and thinking, we aren’t able to have access to all the characters’ thoughts. The third person limited omniscient point of view gives great importance to the story, because we are principally focused on the overall dire situation of the characters and the thoughts of the main character, as opposed to the feelings and thoughts of all the characters.
How does Hitchcock manipulate the audience in Psycho? In this essay, I will explain the variety of ways in which Alfred Hitchcock manipulates the audience in Psycho, and the ways in which he created such an effective film. The manipulation Hitchcock used for Pyscho began in the trailer, before the film was even screened! The most manipulating scene in this trailer is when the director gives an image that Norman Bates' mother is alive, whereas really, Norman's schizophrenic behaviour suggests his character is actually dominated by his mother. This is neither the truth nor a lie, as the mother is actually dead but not in the mind of Norman.
