  • Makers Of The Movie
    1,054 words
    The Last of the Mohicans By James Fenimore Cooper The book, Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper was very different from the movie Last of the Mohicans in terms of the story line. However, I feel that the producer and director of this movie did a good job of preserving Cooper's original vision of the classic American man surviving in the wilderness, while possibly presenting it better than the book. The makers of the movie Last of the Mohicans preserved Cooper's central ideas and themes...

    Monster's Ball Monster's ball really doesn't give much sound at all. Instead of depending on sound or tone music the movie express' the emotions of the characters by showing more face close ups and body movements. The viewer is made to sense and feel the emotion of the character just by the acting that is being done. For example when P.
