  • Film Dead Man Walking
    1,121 words
    The Power of Visual Imagery The film Dead Man Walking successfully uses a variety of effective imagery techniques to draw powerful emotions from its viewers. Much of the films success is due to the director Tim Robbins as well as the cast. Before seeing the film Dead Man Walking, I never looked at the actual people involved in the process of capital punishment. I looked at the issue itself and not the people who are part of capital punishment. Robbins successfully personifies the issue of capita...

  • Life Over A Meaningless Existence
    462 words
    Some might say that life is defined by the choices we make. But, what if you choose your life into a meaningless existence, an existence where the only satisfaction you have is injected through the end of a hypodermic needle. Trainspotting is a British film, which ponders such an existence with a rather non-judgmental light placed upon the use of heroin. By the end, you might find a somewhat deeper meaning of life, or at least a definition of what life should not be. Trainspotting is a dark come...

    "Butterfly Effect" was perhaps one of the best films I have ever seen. I found it mysterious, interesting and fascinating. I wanted to write my reaction paper about "Butterfly Effect" because of the similarity to the film we saw in class called "Donnie Darko". Both films investigate the issue of destiny thoroughly. Both film had a male character that has memories, dreams or black outs which make them at first confused. But later on, they realized the power they have in order to change their dest...
  • Connie Leaves With Arnold Friend
    912 words
    Suspension Without Suspense Though the film Smooth Talk maintains considerable fidelity to Joyce Carol Oates's, Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been, the written form on which it is based, a single yet critical difference separates a literary masterpiece from a cheap flick's misguided interpretation. The main pitfall of the film adaptation is that it portrays a concrete ending, effectively negating the possibility of alternative conclusions, an intentional device employed by the author. Cons...

  • Joy Luck Club The Film And Book
    938 words
    The Joy Luck Club The film and book, The Joy Luck Club, directed by Wayne Wang and written by Amy Tan, respectively, although still depressing at times was a nice departure from the blunt death and destruction featured in the works we discussed the first half of the semester. The stories of the eight women hit very close to home for me because I also have a love and hate relationship with my mother who lived a much different life growing up than I did. The film and book are a beautiful celebrati...
  • Mr Gittes
    733 words
    Chinatown and J.J. Gittes As a classic detective movie, Chinatown involves a hard-boiled setting and a private investigator. The story takes place in Los Angeles, California during the 1930's. The mood of the film is typical of that of a detective story, and the gradual discovery of clues completes the films mysterious atmosphere. Though the detective myth is at first followed, Director Roman Polanski quickly deviates from the typical story line. Instead of gaining more control over the situatio...

    Matt Cowell Film Noir Sept, 28th 2003 Dr. Greta A. Niu "The Lost Weekend" Film Noir or Not Though "The Lost Weekend" is considered to be film noir, there are major differences between it and other classic film noir movies. What makes The Lost Weekend a film noir movie? As we have seen The Lost Weekend has no femme fatale, no mystery, murder, private eye, and none of the leading ladies is particularly sultry or sensual. However as I analyzed the film there are many key areas in which The Lost Wee...
  • Sexual Theme Of The Film
    1,087 words
    At first glance 'Closely Watched Trains' could appear to be to be a losing fight against adversity, which inevitably it is, however there are many moments and hints at liberation and the endeavour for freedom within it that give out hope. It takes place in occupied Czechoslovakia, and our protagonist Milos, who becomes a dispatcher's apprentice, is more concerned initially with his journey to sexual awakening. Oblivious to the war he encounters a world which is frustrating and ultimately leads t...
  • Detective And The Bad Guy
    693 words
    The Big Sleep" directed by Howard Haus is definitely an example of film noir. Throughout the movie I noticed dark shadowy images where the protagonist and the femme fatale would exchange witty dialogue. The film held all the major aspects of a film noir, except for maybe one. Heavy music floods your ears while dark rainy pictures take over the screen. Whenever Bogart is driving somewhere or searching for something the picture turns significantly darker and adds more shadows. When Bogart stakes o...
  • Guido Benigni
    1,165 words
    Life is Beautiful Roberto Benigni's moving film, Life is Beautiful, is a film that is set in a concentration camp and combines comedy with the seriousness of the extermination of the Jews in Nazi Germany. Benigni's task in making this film was significant, by taking a tremendous risk, making a "comedy about the holocaust", and the fact that he pulled it off so well, despite the expected controversy it has aroused in some, is downright miraculous. The film's plot structure can be divided into two...
