The use of weather compliments the mood of the scene, as it then begins raining heavily. Later in the movie, the protagonist is exploring the mansion in Manderley, she is constantly been put in the shadows and the use of film noir emphasises the fact that she is concealed from the truth and she is always unaware of what is happening around
English half yearly speech: All texts, regardless of form or composer, inherently presents different voices in their composition which are created by expression of their mood and emotions towards a specific situation. The texts that will be used to effectively convey this concept are “ The life and crimes of Harry Lavender” by Marele Day and Charlie Chaplin’s speech in the movie “The Great Dictator”. These two texts will be used to demonstrate textual conventions and language with different voices and how these two texts uses voices to critique the importance of distinctive voices in defining and developing characters. In “The Life and crimes of Harry Lavender” the composer uses the voice of Claudia Valentine in the detective genre to convey the idea of gender roles can affect the detective genre. Marele Day deliberately places Claudia within the detective genre to subvert the masculine dominated stereotyped role of the male protagonist to an empowered female detective, reflected in her personality shown when she says “I was changing cars more often then I change underwear”.
Distinctively visual Question: how composers use distinctively visual techniques to create meaning in texts. Distinctively visual technique holds great ability to convey powerful message through the text to the responders. This is evident in the play “shoehorn sonata” as its composer John Misto explores the horror of war and the importance of friendship during the invasion of Singapore in 1942. Similarly Nick Ut’s photograph “The Napalm Girl” illustrates the brutality of human conflict in the Vietnam War as well as the innocent civilian that is mercilessly treated. Both texts demonstrates the atrocity that war brings using visual techniques although they rely on different ways to convey their message.
Texts are often influenced by the values and attitudes of their authors, and always reflect the time in which they are composed. Christopher Isherwood's novel Goodbye to Berlin (1939) and Bob Fosse’s musical Cabaret (1972) are both texts that explore the economic, social and political unrest and internal decay of Berlin in the 1930s. Inflation, World War 1, the failure of the Weimar Republic and a hedonistic society form the context of Isherwood's stories. In contrast, Fosse transforms Isherwood's stories into another form of entertainment, Hollywood musical, and demonstrates how a shift in context to a 1970s audience with a post-holocaust retrospection accounts for a shift in values. An inverse relationship is developed between the two texts, which establishes the notion of the Nazis' rise to power and the pursuit of a decadent lifestyle Both Goodbye to Berlin and Cabaret reflect anti-Semitic values and the rise of Nazism in Berlin in the 1930’s.Goodbye to Berlin was written at a time of political and economic instability in Europe, particularly Germany.
Katharine Gallaher Ms. Dumas English IV 29 August 2011 Comparison Paper There are several similarities between the novel “1984” and the movie V is for Vendetta. The greatest one to me is that both Winston and V look to the past to guide their future actions. In “1984” Winston uses the past as a goal of what he wants the future to look like and it provides motivation for him to continue with his rebellion. In V is for Vendetta it is more obvious that V is basing his actions off the past and is using the date November the 4th as motivation and a reference for his actions. Smaller similarities that occur are ones such as vaporizing and black bags.

I am going to look at if a film portrayal can be a truthful representation of a historical period in time using Pride And Prejudice as an example. When looking at the text in comparison to the 1995 mini series by the BBC it is apparent that the 2005 film has taken a very different approach and represents the lifestyles and environments extremely differently. I am going to attempt to prove or disprove that a film can or cannot give an accurate historical representation of the period and form some sort of conclusion from it. I firstly began by looking closely at the opening scenes of each of the films and the differences in the representations. Reviewing the opening sequence of Pride And Prejudice (BBC 1995) we begin with a ‘misted’ camera shot panning over elegant embroidery and refined materials to a classic piano soundtrack, connoting elegance and class as the camera slowly pans through an array of pinks and creams, the materials are lavish and very expensive looking, again connoting class and elegance and establishing ideals for the opening scene.
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. By exploring their opposing arguments with respect to A Walk to Remember and the movie’s historical context in romance films, one can reach a conclusion about the effects of the movie on audiences and whether or not these effects are considered positive or negative. A Walk to Remember began as a novel by well-known author of romance novels, Nicholas Sparks. It was written in 1999, and Sparks shares that there was a rather strong inspiration behind the writing of it. Sparks loosely based the novel off of the life of his younger sister, who developed cancer at a young age (Sparks).
The affect of Weddings and Funerals in Friedrich Durrenmatt’s “The Visit” and Federico Garcia Lorca’s “The House of Bernarda Alba” Weddings and funerals are of great significance naturally in one’s life, as they mark a begging and an end to one, respectively. Durrenmatt and Alba have used and manipulated the values of both, to their own dramatical benefit; one in order to criticize the conformist time and the capitalist economy that domineered at that time (1956) and the other to portray the oppression on sexuality. Where through his use of impressionistic style writing, he was able to portray that the eminence of life can be disvalued in the presence of great financial possession. This technique is being functioned through his two main characters; Claire Zachanassian and Alfred Ill. At the beginning of the play, Ill’s town is of great anticipation to Claire’s arrival. Claire has been a former resident of this town and shares mutual clandestine history with Ill. With the introduction of this character, also comes the introduction of the two main subject matters; weddings and funerals.
Atwood reveals Offreds 'state of mind' through the use of flashbacks. These flashbacks are the most intricate in the 'Night' sections of the narrative. One of Offreds battles in the novel is to survive in the political climate of her dystopian society, and also survive psychologically. 'Night' is explored as a time where Offred is free from the constant conspiracy and surveillance of her society. Here she is free to reminisce on her life before Gilead and her time as a handmaid.
