When talking about Billy Wilder as a director a popular, controversial topic is whether or not he is considered an auteur. There have been many critics who have attempted to prove that Wilder is not an auteur but many have fallen short on providing a strong and convincing argument. Billy Wilder is an auteur for many reasons; the most obvious reason though is by comparing his four most famous movies. Wilder was very involved in the process of making the film and was often the writer, producer and director of the film. 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.
Movement is undeniably one of the most important parts of cinema without it we wouldn 't be calling them “movies”. An often overlooked part of the art of cinema, if done well it can make a scene even more impactful and convey as much information as dialogue can about how the character is thinking and feeling. On of the elements of movement that makes it so important to the art is its ability to completely change the meaning of a scene just by changing the position of the camera. “A director can photograph the same subject—a running man, for example—in two different setups and produce opposite meanings. If the man is photographed in an extreme long shot from a high angle, he will seem ineffectual and impotent.
Django may have not had as many different closeups or different sound techniques as The Conjuring. Django was more about how fast or slow a scene would, or would it be out of focus or not. Main idea for each film was to give the audience a type of feeling. While Django had multiple shots in one scene, that was not the case with The Conjuring, as you would get one long drawn out scene with one type of camera angle which gave you that suspense feeling which is needed in horror films. More times than not it is the editing that takes more time than actually shooting the film, but many would agree there is no more important aspect of a film than the editing, because it can make the film almost come alive in a sense.
A Successful Romantic Tragedy Romantic tragedy can be a very successful genre to work with for film directors although, in some cases, the making of the film goes haywire somewhere along the line and ends up being a rather catastrophic rendition of a romantic tragedy. When I pursued a study of this genre, I found that there are several factors which can make or break a film, depending on how well these factors are used and to what extent they are thought through and developed. These areas, I discovered, are generally cinematography, special effects and the soundtrack, the plot and narrative drive, the characters and acting, the cultural discourse/s used. Discourses are particularly pertinent to this genre as the subject matter, events and characterisations are largely historical, and therefore, they automatically need to be viewed as cultural artefacts, revealing different attitudes and values to those of the modern viewer. Thus, the director of this genre must work doubly hard in order to encourage viewers to suspend their disbelief and become caught up in the drama unfolding before them.
Comparison of Ethan Hawke and Kenneth Branagh's Versions of Hamlet Modern day directors use a variety of methods to hold ones interest. Ethan Hawke and Kenneth Branagh’s created versions of Hamlet that shared some similarities, but ultimately had many differences in respects to an audience’s appeal. An appealing movie is one that has an alluring ambiance and an intellectual stimulus. With these two movie versions, a setting and a mood forced an audience to acquire specific emotions, but Ethan Hawke’s version generated emotions more strongly and effectively. 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.
Hollywood favors drama and conflict, so when an historical story lacks one of these elements, it is often simply added for the sake of appeal. This practice falls under great scrutiny by those with a serious interest in the events that these movies portray. Because the better part of American viewers expect and demand stories told with the Hollywood spin, those films that attempt to stick doggedly to the facts generally do poorly in the box-office.  Many historical films, however, have found success while staying true to the facts. These films oftentimes come from producers, directors, and actors with a genuine concern for the events they deal with.
Underneath the hilarity of the film lies a message not just about the lengths that actors will go for an Oscar but to be your authentic self and everything will work out. The movie also exploits the stereotypical American “Celebrity “. Throughout the film they poke fun at Hollywood and the actors within Hollywood. In the film it’s hard to detect reality from fiction because of the comedic element and editing choices. Overall, when comparing the film within the film we can clearly see the difference in the acting and filming choices.
The movie Home Alone follows the dramatic progression of exposition, complication, climax, and dénouement and does a great job building the many complications and main complications that led to the climax of the movie. The film uses both objective and subjective shots, but while watching an audience would subconsciously miss the fact that there are subjective viewpoint in the film. Aside from knowing that there are many conflicts in a movie to make a movie because how can a film story progress if there is not conflict. From doing this assignment, I think I can group the many conflicts in a film and point at one or two major point that construct the movie.
