Catch Me If You Can is an extremely compelling film, filled with humor, suspense, and numerous twists and turns that will keep one's eyes fixed at the screen from the beginning to the end, and one that I had really enjoyed as well. The producers of the film had more than successfully portrayed the true life story in a way that manages to captivate audience as well as express the shrewdness of the actual Frank Abegnale in real life. From this movie, one can learn that sometimes mischievous and impetuous of one's teenage life, as well as necessity, hard work, and determination can lead to true passion, the key to success in the real world. Do not be mistaken, but this story is not one that urges to express moral, business and ethical virtues that one needs to possess in a business-like film. It is a story of a desperate man who lied and impersonates himself to get money and jobs for a living.
With a judiciously supervision from the director, numerous factors such as location and setting, costume and visual design contribute to a successful plausible film. Francis Ford Coppola relies heavily on the personification element of the film to establish a deep emotional connection with the viewers. His two films, Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) and Apocalypse Now (1979) drawn the viewers into the protagonist’s point of view; making it exceptionally personal. Coppola opts to choose the narrative structure, to create a sense of eyewitness mannerism of the events of the story to the viewers. The narrative structure is beautifully exemplified in both films, where the protagonists (Jonathan Harker in Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Benjamin Willard in Apocalypse Now) sway the viewers through their constant subjective narration.
This quote does two important things for the character of Somerset. First, it verifies our ideals of Somerset from the previous scene. His eye for detail entails us to conclude that he is a very skilled detective. It also shows t... ... middle of paper ... ...t coincide with the final ending, creating symmetry that the audience can readily grasp, unlike the storyboard ending. The idea of original sin lies within the characters themselves, forming a bond with the audience that it depicts.

Screenwriter William Goldman utilizes his own different techniques that keep the story grounded while also keeping viewers interested throughout the film. These techniques include simple opening and closing credits, a subtle use of music, use of real news footage, and a proper balance of drama and intensity. Goldman’s brilliant use of these techniques paid off and lead him to win several screenwriting awards for his work. All the President’s Men is a film that focuses on simplicity and realism. This is evident from the very beginning of the movie.
Also, these movies had extremely different uses of music and visuals, but both movie versions incorporated them well for the ambiance it tried to obtain. Finally, both movie versions drew characters to captivate the audience; however in Ethan Hawke’s version, the characters were used so effectively that it was easy to feel involved with them. While both these versions of Hamlet had a captivating ambiance, Ethan Hawke’s version was more appealing due to the intellectual incentive that it offered. Setting and mood are methods of direction that can change a film’s ambiance and bring on an adundance of intelligent thoughts. Hawke and Branagh both reproduced Hamlet with a setting and mood that were both appealing for an audience.
By being so involved he was able to make scenes his own, especially since Wilder wanted every detail of the scene written out in the script. He also has similar themes of cynicism towards different elements of human nature but would lighten the mood of the film by adding a comedic element to the scene. Wilder also enjoyed pushing the boundaries of screenwriting and to be able to get an approval from the Production Code Administration, he had to add comedy to the script. Another reason that proves Wilder as an auteur is through his work with famous actors and actress. Wilder had a knack for dealing with difficult actors and was often able to make them who he wanted.
“Bowling for Columbine is the right movie at the right time, and if it were seen, it could change America,” Montgani proclaims. It will bring you from laughing to tears with the amazing footage on an extraordinary journey in search for answers that will never exactly be found. Bowling bears a few messages that are most definitely worth considering. Even if everyone doesn’t agree or see things the way Moore does, he digs up questions that are worth asking and certainly worth pondering. Any film that can create such a mind boggling journey deserves a merit.
But the majority of the movie was shot in a way as to lead us to believe that it is Hugo Cabret’s story. Unfortunately it is not. He is merely a medium Scorsese uses to divert one to the history of cinema and make one admire their dream like quality. Here, he resorts to the aid of technology, and the result is quite stunning, one has to admit. The drawings which become animated when the cabinet falls from Isabella’s hand, letting the papers fly, and the dream within a dream sequence, are all effective in capturing the dream like quality of films that fans of Melies admire.
For example, Leonardo Dicaprio’s character of Gatsby was focused on emotions. I enjoyed that Redford was very calm and cool about everything and the way he approached the character but, Dicaprio made such an open and outgoing character which made the movie more entertaining. DiCaprio captured Gatsby’s intensity and charm and brought out the crazy mood swings and took his character and the audience to a more emotional place. Both Robert Redford and Leonardo DiCaprio had their own way of approaching the character and really selling Gatsby but Leonardo DiCaprios was better. Another reason I prefer the 2013 version of the 74’ is because of the bond and friendship Nick Carraway played by Tobey Maguire and Gatsby had MaGuire was able to bring a true and strong meaning to their friendship that made his and Gatsby’s bond feel organic and real and you were able to see that clearly unlike with Waterston where you just saw the friendship and didn’t feel any emotion.
