His characters range from dark and scary to hilarious and downright bizarre, and his ability to transform himself into anyone and create such obscure and weird characters is amazingly remarkable. While many actors only stick to what is comfortable for them, Johnny Depp is able to go above and beyond with each role he receives. Actors like Jennifer Aniston or Adam Sandler tend to have very similar characters in every part they play (D'Arpino 2). You often know what to expect from them. Johnny Depp, on the other hand, is able to always surprise his audience and leave them on the edge of their seat.
This gave the film suspense which was much needed for the story. Clearly, both directors used the setting and the mood to play with particular emotions of the audience. However, Hawke was more creative in his methods and he created a non-traditional setting and mood that related more to a modern day audience. For example, Hawke focused on the mood by choosing camera shots during Hamlet’s soliloquy that... ... middle of paper ... ...ter development was sophisticated and artisitic. In this version, the audience was absorbed with Hamlet’s character.
He has revolutionized the motion picture industry with the films he has directed. Scorsese has a unique approach in directing his films. Lastly, Scorsese’s favorite actor to star in his films is Robert DeNiro, who is by far my favorite actor of all time. This topic holds much value to me because movies are an escape from reality that I enjoy. I do not believe many people realize how influential movies and all other media are.
Furthermore, films at the time would con... ... middle of paper ... ...ound allows the audience to reflect and reassess it's opinions. As I have shown you Hitchcock utilises a plethora of techniques to create tension and suspense. Some of these techniques are complex and purely subliminal, these techniques are particular to this film and not at all transferable. Other more overt but equally* less complex techniques such as his use of shadow are more revolutionary because they have been transferred and applied to the entire horror genre. It is because these techniques have been used and evolved upon so much that audiences of today don't always experience the suspense and tension of audiences of the time.
Mel Gibson has absolutely made a name for himself both as actor and a director. He is able to tell a story from a point a view that many people try to shy away from. In my perspective, Mel Gibson is a outstanding film director. His ability for mixing the right comment in films does made a backlash at times as seen with the Passion of the Christ. But nonetheless, creates an epic movie that is sure to be talked about for years to come.
He is arguably the best Auteur in the film industry so far. His attention to detail, and obsession over perfection is what makes him great. He holds himself to such a high standard. Not only can he be considered a cinematic genius, but he knows how to get people to do what he wants. In film, having the vision is only half of the battle.
At some point in a director’s life he/she learn different tactics from their colleagues and soon they become each other’s rivals. With no malice just a simple competition on who could make films more realistic, more intriguing, and more appealing to the audience. Two directors who were in friendly competition were Alfred Hitchcock and Fritz Lang. Two of the many films both directors were known for were “M” directed in 1931 by Fritz Lang and “Psycho” directed in 1960 by Alfred Hitchcock. Which although directed in different times both showed a very important similarity, that being the targeted audience; Lang and Hitchcock were widely known for their thrillers.
The book has several parts that can bore the reader, but Goldman is able to make the same moments entertaining on screen. For example, there is a humorous scene when Woodward and Bernstein finally catch a break and get an interview, only to realize they are interviewing the wrong person. Goldman does an exemplary job of using these subtle moments of comic relief to break the intensity of the overall story. They aren’t overly used, which could’ve made the movie too ridiculous. These moments are used just enough to keep the overall tone of the film serious.
History films have often been criticised by academics and journalists as inaccurate depictions of the past. Yet there is no denying the fact that blockbuster history films are increasingly influential in shaping our understanding of historical people and events thanks to the accessibility of the medium. Producers of these films often take liberties with facts to tell a more dramatic, engaging and entertaining story. They have a basis in truth but are greatly influenced by the writers’ and directors’ desire to envelop the audience in the story and to entertain. They focus the visual and auditory senses of the viewer on the subject being studied creating a stimulating and forceful impact on the viewer, therefore engaging their interest.
Few actors such as Johnny Deep, Helen Bonham Carter and Christopher Lee conformed to his standards and repeatly collaborated in his films. Tim Burton has an unusual visual style of characters, props, and setting that stand out in his film in an exaggerated manner. When Tim Burton writes his film, his style becomes more distinguished and striking. He creates characters from his own life experiences, such as Edward Scissorhands who represents him in his childhood days. His films shows his true colors as a person and his style continues to influence many who undergo similar experiences.
