  • Lumiere Brother's First Ten Films
    456 words
    Documentary Films A peek at the Lumiere Brothers A documentary usually captures the truth on camera. Louis and Auguste Lumiere projected the first film for a paying audience in March 1895 called Workers leaving the factory. Then later on the brothers screened ten films. Their films showed events in their everyday life and of their children. Throughout the filming of this documentary the voice over of Bertard Tra vanier is heard. At the beginning the film looks similar to a slide show, a series o...
  • Film Noir When Borde And Chaumeton
    5,054 words
    Forty years after Raymond Borde and tienne Chaumeton defined the challenge, critical commentators on film noir continue to grapple with it. Ironically, American writers did not immediately take up consideration of this indigenous phenomenon and the question of its "essential traits". Only gradually in a frequently cross-referenced series of essays in the 1970's did they begin to express themselves. There are now a dozen full-length books in English concerning film noir and undoubtedly more to fo...
  • Johanson's Discovery Of Lucy In Hadar
    588 words
    Evidence and Interpretation in Paleo anthropology In a search to find our ancestors, several anthropologists have found evidence to support their conclusions. In the films about Don Johanson's discovery of Lucy in Hadar, one may be very intrigued by the first film but very disturbed by the second film. I was very intrigued by the findings of the Australopithecines. The idea that Lucy, the skeleton found in Hadar, Africa, was closely related to the human species was amazing. Lucy was bipedal and ...
  • Rosemary's Baby
    1,322 words
    Roman Polanski incorporated religious themes into his films, "A Knife In The Water" (Poland 1962) and "Rosemary's Baby" (U.S. 1968)". A Knife In The Water" contains some Christian imagery that is not incorporated into the plot or theme of the film. In contrast, the central theme of "Rosemary's Baby" is religion. I believe this difference illustrates the fact that Polanski desired to make a radical religious film but was unable to do so until he came to The United States. "A Knife In The Water" i...
  • Danish Television And Film Companies

    I. DANISH FILM It was in June 7 1896 when Danes saw cinematographic pictures for the first time at the Haymarket (Town Hall Square now) in Copenhagen, but the first cinema (Kosmorama) was not opened until September 17, 1904. At that time it was usual to have a pianist playing while the film was shown because of the noise from the projector. Peter El felt (1866-1931) is a film pioneer in Denmark with some films about Greenland and royalty. Ole Olsen created Nordisk Film Kompagni, the first Danish...
  • Perfection In The First And Second Movies
    668 words
    I came into the theatre expecting. Expecting what? Well, everything. It is not that I had heard friends or other movie reviewers raving about the film, it was because I had seen the first two movies of this series myself. Not many films can challenge the brain in such an obscure manner as this trilogy does. As Keanu Reeves stated, "The first film was about birth, the second about life and the third about death". Many of us didn't even understand the first film yet loved it because of that. As we...
  • 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...
