    Exploring the Dark Side: Contrasting Themes in "Blue Velvet" The subconscious psyche is one of the most fascinating and almost completely inexplicable aspects of human behavior. Even more intriguing than merely the subconscious is the notion of a darker, more repressed side that many individuals refuse to acknowledge exists within them. In David Lynch's film "Blue Velvet", the director attempts to explore the psyche of a young man named Jeffrey Beaumont, most notably the clash between his darker...
  • Our First Shot Of Dracula

    Horror films of today employ several film techniques to invoke responses from the viewer. However, early silent films relied more on these techniques because without a script, the viewer needs another way to interpret the film. The 1922 silent film Nosferatu directed by F.W.

If each shot could be individually captured in a frame, they could each display an artistic quality. The opening of this fi...
  • Apparent In Rose's Smile And Eyes
    697 words
    In this scene, Jack takes Rose up to the bow of the Titanic to show her how to "fly". They step up on the railings, and take the risk of falling. There is a parallel between this 'risk' and the risk they are taking by 'falling' in love. They are from two different worlds and are not deemed by society, suitable for each other. The main obstacle, insofar as society sees, is that Jack is from a much lower class and would never be able to support Rose. The metaphor in this scene is quite apparent: J...
