Nineteen Eighty-Four, Part Three, Chapter Five In this extract from Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell creates a scene of terror and suspense, which induces feelings of horror and revulsion in the audience. Orwell incorporates ideas such as the fear of the unknown, the fear of “the worst thing in the world”, and the fear we feel when we know that unthinkable horrors are about to occur. Through Winston’s eyes, Orwell also shows the physical reaction he has to the rats, and his final feeling of hope, and in the end, relief as he avoids the rats. Another idea explored is the knowledge Winston has that he will be unable to fight what is coming. Orwell portrays all these ideas through his vivid use of vocabulary, through repetition, short sentences, alliteration, and imagery.
Racism, an institutional ideology In 2006, the movie Crash presented many challenging portrayals of racial and ethnic issues. Crash is set in Los Angeles and portrays the ways in which people often show evidence of racist behavior, even while shielding themselves from the same kind of conduct, during confrontation. They do so when apprehensive and insecure: when discouraged with tribulations beyond their control, when threatened with a loss of self-esteem, and when frightened that racial others may extricate them from their place in the social structure. Racist behavior is an easy response because racial categories were fabricated to present superior and inferior status. Race is an influential idea and a continuing concept, made-up by society.
An analysis of cinematography and sound from the 1996 film Scream The film is introduced by a blood-curdling scream when is played out over the film’s title. This is an immediate reference to the title, the word ‘Scream’, and instantly introduces the genre of horror to the audience. This slightly heightens the tension, as the audience now get a feeling that Wes Craven, the auteur, will not mess about when playing out dramatic and suspenseful sequences throughout the film. Following this, a harsh phone call interrupts the scream and brings the audience to reality, to focus on what is actually happening. This is followed by a rude cut to a phone to really pull in the audience and grab their attention, and makes them wonder about what is going on, and even ask questions of who the characters involved are.
David Denby creates a strongly negative view of a popular movie. He first builds a strong ethos via a wide range of background knowledge, builds the common ground between readers who might holds different views and him through logos, and uses great connotation and influential vocabulary and metaphors to validate his illustration by pathos. In terms of ethos, with valid academic background from Columbia College and Stanford University, David Denby is a well-known film critic of the New Yorker. His identity suggests his authenticity in film reviewing and background in the film industry. For instance, he mentioned in the second paragraph that, “The ‘All about Eve’ business with dancers preying on one another was retained from a discarded screenplay by Andres Heinz, who worked on the final version of ‘Black Swan’ with Mark Hyman and John J. Mclaughlin.” By showing the audience insiders’ insights from the film industry, Denby shows his familiarity with
She responded mostly by interrupting his questions to let him know that she has the right to be “pissed off” at the world’s current situation due to these idiots and morons. This is where her passion about the argument really shows. She was legitimately infuriated at these people just by talking about them and their beliefs and actions. The whole lecture, movie and all, was very interesting and eye opening. I learned a lot about the truth about fracking and also about the sort of battle between people like Ann McElhinney and environmentalists, which is currently raging on.
These distinctly visual elements pull the audience into Nicks mind and allow us to connect, and feel his panic and rising anxiety. Nick has
“I was looking for realism all the time”. This has been superbly done through a variety of cinematic techniques. The use of the shaky camera, and the camera following the actions and movements of the soldiers above and under water, really included the audience as if they were there, beside the soldiers and experiencing the horror and confusion of war. “I wanted to hit the sets much like a newsreel cameraman following soldiers into war”. The sounds of the heavy artillery, bombs exploding and screaming of the soldiers throughout the battle also add to the horror.
The filmmaker incorporates many suspense techniques in Eye contact. One of them being the cliffhanger at the end of the film which adds suspense by keeping the audience wondering what the fate of the main character will be. The film uses an abundance of camera angles to help contribute to the suspense. My favorite instance of this would be when the camera would zoom into the characters faces while also intensifying the music to add a dramatic effect. However, the part that created the most
Firstly, I would like to examine William's use of grammar and punctuation and how it is effective at creating dramatic tension. Throughout the scene I noticed the frequent use of exclamation marks in the dialogue. These are used to demonstrate when the characters were speaking loudly and with authority making other characters uneasy thus creating tension. “Naw! We gotta have odds!”, “Catch!”, “Bowling!” The exclamation marks suggest that Stanley often likes to make his point in a booming and confident manner.
The Sixth Sense M. Night Shyamalans “The Sixth Sense” is a suspense film that is about a child with a special, but scary gift to see things others can’t. With the clues given, you can tell this movie will have some heart racing parts and parts that will make you tear up. With symbols and clues throughout the film you really have to pay attention to what is going on so you can know what is going to happen later on. In the opening credits the tone in the music is a minor key, which portrays a kind of sadness and then switches over horror as “The Sixth Sense” appears in the credits. The credits at the beginning of the film kind of manifest onto the screen in a ghost like way, to show the movie will be scary.
