BLADE RUNNER The Cruellest Cut by Elaine Lennon Introduction - Genre Genre films are Hollywood's lifeblood: they define American cinema as we know it. These are standardised films made to type engendering a disciplined framework not only in an aesthetic sense for filmmakers but also (and crucially in an industry renowned for its flops as well as its hits) economically, guaranteeing repeat success with the mass audience. A genre film (like any other kind of film) has a social and cultural function, sometimes aligned with the myths of the past, perhaps even reducing them in importance. The Great Narratives of the West (typically Judaeo-Christian belief systems) are now rivalled in the cathedrals of celluloid that we call the multiplexes. It could be claimed that generic forms transmit ideological precepts, be they social, political or whatever, either imposing values or questioning pre-existent ideas.
Limitless director Neil Burger has worked with the music industry directing music videos and producing commercials for MTV. Neil Burger directed the Films Interview with the Assassin in 2002, The Illusionist in 2006 and The Lucky Ones “in 2008. His most recent film to direct is Limitless in 2011 based on the novel The Dark Fields by Alan Glynn. The film Limitless is about a struggling writer named Eddie played by Bradley Cooper. Eddie takes a pill by the name NZT that allows him to access one hundred percent of his brain power.
Sin Nombre In Cary Fukunaga’s film, “Sin Nombre,” the audience engages in the tormenting but inspiring story of a young Honduran girl and a Mexican ex-gang banger trying to illegally trespass borders into the United States. The film portrays two parallel stories that tie up at the end of the saga. On one hand we have Willy; a young man who belongs to the feared gang of the Mara Salvatrucha in Honduras and recruits a little boy, Benito. After the little boy is initiated, the rest of the members including Willy beat him up. All covered in blood Benito still smiles to his commanders as a demonstration of strength and satisfaction to the “Mara’s” admission.
However the choice that has been made is to cover and contrast two of the maybe more interesting portrayals in the history of film making regarding the Virgin Queen. With the first account and portrayal I have chosen Derek Jarman’s nineteen seventy eight, what could be described as a “cult” classic, and semi-regular of late night slots on BBC2 throughout the nineteen eighties, “Jubilee”. A film that can be thought of as a punk classic due to its subject matter, cast, timing and general feel. However, it can also be said that, despite its punk credentials, Jubilee, although never a mainstream film, may not be the punk masterpiece it is sometimes thought of. The latter and second choice of film is “Elizabeth R”, nineteen seventy one, a heavyweight period drama that the BBC were, and still are, so good at.
It is seen through the use of characterisation. Throughout the movie Bender is portrayed as a nasty criminal who smokes drugs and destroys everything. By the end of the movie he becomes nicer and gets to know the rest of the people he has detention with. He also falls in love with Claire, the princess of the school. Characterisation is used to portray the theme of rebellion, camera angles is also used to portray the theme of rebellion.
Even without seeing publicity material, the PG certificate and the choice of teen favourites Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder for lead roles evidently suggest that this is a film aimed at the teenage market. The casting of Vincent Price as the inventor is an allusion to the horror genre, a little joke which, unfortunately is appreciated by
Thornhill is mistaken to George Kaplan and brought to Leonard Townsend. As the movie proceeds, Thornhill attempts to find the secret of Townsend’s interest in Kaplan. Then, he goes out of the city to look for Kaplan in order to extricate the murder he accused of committing. A young, beautiful, blond girl, Eve, helps him to escape from police. The two fall in love without Thornhill’s knowledge that Eve is Townsend’s agent and seduces him to get into Townsend’s trap.

Furthermore, research on multiple personality disorder (MPD) (now known as dissociative identity disorder) showed that people attempting to feign MPD would often report having two stereotypical good versus bad personalities, while true sufferers of MPD normally report having “a tetrad of personalities” (Kluft, 1987, p.112). This was accurately shown in the movie, as Stampler’s malingered personality of Aaron was clearly meant to be the “good” personality, while his true personality of Roy was the “bad”
How violence in entertainment affects our society by Andrew Bogucki This was a paper that I wrote for school pertaining to the topic of violence in entertainment. Excessive violence in movies has become a popular trend with Hollywood directors lately. Vivian C. Sobchack, author of "The Postmorbid Condition," wrote "Instead of caressing violence, the cinema has become increasingly careless about it: either merely nonchalant or deeply lacking in care. "(Sobchack 378) The violence displayed in these movies, such as the Kill Bill series, attracts a large audience worldwide because the viewers are guaranteed to see adrenaline pumping action and gore. Thane Peterson, author of "Too Much Kill in the Kill Bills," states "Kill Bill: Vol.
