As the play was made into a movie it had to evolve. Characters and their antics are what make a movie fun and interesting. A significant change is in the character portrayal. In the play, Parris seemed to be overly egocentric and self-conscious. He is still thus in the movie, but is more whiny, and annoyingly so.
La Haine Film Summary Director and writer, Mathieu Kassovitz’s La Haine (1995) is absolutely a must see film. It is set apart from other crime and drama genre films because of the way it is written and directed. Kassovitz covers all types of themes captured in this film, from anger and violence to poverty and injustice. The way in which the themes are captured is very different from the average theme filled movie. The film begins with three friends, Vinz, Said, and Hubert.
Each brings a freshness to these characters. Even though we’ve seen the same types of characters before, these actors makes them feel interesting and unique. “The Notebook” is a gentle romantic tale in the midst of blockbuster action films and goofball comedies. It could be argued that releasing it in mid-June is counter-programming at its best, giving adults who don’t want their senses assailed by CGI special effects a real choice at the box office. But you have to wonder if “The Notebook” would have stood a better chance of finding the right audience had it been released later in the year, when moviegoers are really ready for more intense storytelling, than during the crowded summer months.
I enjoyed the casting choices because the actors and scenery joined to convey a part of the movies theme. It discussed issues that were amenable. As stated in our text by Edward G. Robinson, “an audience identifies with the actors of flesh and blood and heartbeat, as no reader or beholder can identify with even the most artful paragraphs in books or the most inspiring paintings. There, says the watcher, but for some small difference in time or costume or inflections or gait, go I …. And so, the actor becomes a catalyst; he or she brings ignition that spark in every human being that longs for the miracle of transformation”.
Movie review: Mulholland Drive "Mulholland Drive" is a film that is hard to grasp and will be hard to review with just one viewing of the film, but I will attempt to write one. This is a film which I was disappointed in at first, but as the film went on and then afterwards, was convinced that it is a masterpiece of a film. I won't spend much time writing about the plot, but will describe briefly what the audience sees on the screen. As with most David Lynch films, it's not the plot that matters anyway. The story centers on the life of two women in Hollywood.
Its hard to say this but, I lara ferguson actually enjoyed a Jim carrey film! Unlike in his other films, I actually could look at the screen without cringing but actually laughing. I would like to say this was down to the brilliant script writing of Andre Niccol, wich would naturally
Listed in the above paragraph the first criteria (1) a genre similar to westerns, comedies or horror (2) a period tied to that era of the 40's and late 50's and (3) a cinematic style with its own unique look. It would be unfair not to mention that there are also purists out there that believe film noir cannot be in colour nor be a genre. Then, that would exclude my personal opinion, that the best film ever made other than Casablanca was Blade Runner. This brilliant film would fall short of the mark because it does not keep with the tradition of containing dark, shadowy images shot in black and white or scenes set in seedy run down city places of the 40's and 50's. Although the film does portray leading characters that are akin to Caligula or Nero with a touch of Caesar.
Each serves its purpose well; the steel frame buildings just do so with more flair. I like to think that only a good movie would still be watched after fifty-three years. But, everything good about the book is missing or distorted (plot, characters, details). The plot is too convoluted to make a movie. But the movie of The Big Sleep is still a success and, well, a good movie, just because they changed the plot and the characters.
A producer seeks to fulfill the viewers of its generation and society so he would modernize aspects of The Catcher in the Rye to be sure to make a successful film The time period of the book would still be used in the film, as done before in movies such as The Great Gatsby, to create and maintain the theme or plot setting for the movie. Clothes, slang, cars, places, walking street, subway etc The issues or actions in The Catcher in the Rye are still problems in today’s society, such as smoking, under aged drinking, education conflict, and the classic boy-girl complications that may be a question we never know. With the similarities between the 21st century and Holden’s life in the early 50s, a producer has the ability to bring to date issues such as smoking cigarettes by possibly changing the tobacco to a more relatable drug in today’s day in age such as marijuana. The producer’s creation may also consist of more sex appeal in the clothing of women
For example he was stuck in a different reality and he knew what to do and never panicked, and eventually got out because of his smarts. Crash was the best movie because the writing could be related to life very easily for certain types of people. The acting in the movie was also incredible. The class most likely agrees with me because of how real the acting was. The movie was nominated for many awards proving how great it was.
