    778 words
    The Two films we have studied recently 10 things I hate about you and Ferris Buellers day off deal with certain issues relating to youths of today's society.

Film techniques such as the use of dialogue, soundtrack, costuming and camera angles help portray the characters image. The film 10 things I hate about you is a story about 2 completely opposite sisters Bianca, popular and vain and Katarina Str...
  • Film In Detail

When the announcement was made that Tom Cruise would star as Lestat, I had deep reservations and severe criticisms. So did many many of my readers. I talked openly about this. A curtain thereafter divided me from the entire production, and with reason. Nobody likes to be criticized, and that includes movie p...

    333 words
    Does anyone really like to be stereotyped? Does anyone want to be looked at and automatically judged just because of the way they look, by their skin color, their hair type, or even the type of clothing they have on? Finding Forrester is a film that in my opinion perpetuates stereotypes. The entire film is based on significantly different racial opinions, opinions of different writing styles and stereotyping of different people in general. Race is a huge issue in the film and many stereotypes ar...
  • Sant's Film The Reality Of High School
    1,606 words
    Gus Van Sant's Elephant was at once critically praised and denounced by both film reviewers and film goers alike. The cinematography takes you on a waltz throughout a seemingly typical day at an unnamed high school, stopping through the journey to focus on the stereotypes of school. The jock, the quirky artist, the clique d girls, the skateboarder, they are all represented and representative of his film. Van Sant created a film, seemingly without a staunch opinion on the horrors of the Columbine...

  • Brando And Taka's Romance Scenes
    507 words
    Sayonara h This film is now one of my absolute favorite old movies, right alongside with Gone with the Wind. The film's focus on the taboo's of interracial marriages, while an eye-opening subject in the 60's, the film was not shy showing the audiences that love overcomes all, and when two are in love, all things are possible. Throughout the entire film, I never once felt the romance scenes were "played out" or unusually depicted. This film truthfully allowed me to understand how love doesn't loo...

  • Utopian Worlds On Film
    1,506 words
    Film is known to be the construction of images projected in rapid succession onto a screen to create the illusion of movement. However, this may be the technical explanation for what is happening but film stretches far beyond imagination and it is probably the most powerful medium of communication that the human mind has conceived. One of the great gifts of the cinematic experience is escapism; the opportunity to seek temporary respite from the high and low dramas that fill up our days and to lo...

    People Magazine Vivre Sa Vie Let's Rate It: Vivre Sa Vie, a film coming just two short years after Godard's highly regarded Breathless, is a stark and moving cinematic work which shows, in 12 chapters, how the life of Nana spirals tragically downward from her days of Paris window shopping to street prostitution. The film, which includes an interesting blend of intimate close-ups, gangster shootouts, and French existentialist ideas, captures all the important elements and informal liberties of th...
