This well-written novel was not cumbersome in appearance or in the actual reading, and that is a slight shock considering the topics it covered. One of the reasons this book had so much power first in Germany and (luckily) many other countries was that it plainly but truthfully ... ... middle of paper ... ...rtistic expression,” (42). His understanding and usage of this method is phenomenal. Obviously others of the day thought so too because the story was rather quickly made into a movie. This was the time period when Hollywood jumped on classic books and fantastic new ones entering the literary scene in order to ensure public attendance.
Scorsese stated in an interview, “I felt empathetic for the character, overwhelmed by the nature of the story.” (Wong). Scorsese has often been hailed as the greatest living American movie directer, and has been in the film making industry for over forty years. He describes the process of translating the mood he experienced in himself to the big screen as constantly having to “choose, select, emphasize certain visual elements and sound.” (Wong). Scorsese recalls that he turned to a few other select films for inspiration and reference while creating Shutter Island. These films include Samuel Fuller’s Shock Corridor from 1963, Otto Preminger’s Laura from 1944, and Jacques Tourneur’s Out of the Past from 1947 (Wong).
He likes to show the audience the tragedy that is going to occur, before the characters that are going to experience it know of it. His films are well received by worldwide audiences and critics everywhere and his movies have stood the test of time. Mark Pellington is a new director who hasn’t had even close to as much success as Hitchcock. His directing style seems to be much more modern and incorporates many different styles and angles. Arlington Road, directed by Mark Pellington, does not live up to the likes of a movie such as Rear Window, directed by Alfred Hitchcock because while they are similar in plot, they are far too different in themes, and directorial approach.
The movie holds true to the novel with this scene. The movie and novel compare as well with Daisy running over Myrtle and Gatsby taking the blame. I feel that the director wanted to keep the authenticity of the great writing so he kept the important details and brought the story to life. The novel and movie do have many comparisons but like any remake the novel contains more detail. In the movie there are some extremely different events than in the novel.
The quirkier the characters, there will a more favorable response from the audience. Characters much like the Sprezzatura, are popular with audiences of any culture. However, sometimes these foreign comedies do not translate over to the typical Hollywood audience. Many times, the United States tries to create the same success that movies have overseas, domestically. By recreating famous foreign films for United States audiences, success comes over art, and fails to connect with audiences.
Hugo: A Title Forgotten By Amala Benny Hugo by Martin Scorsese , based on the novel ‘The Invention of Hugo Cabret’ by Brian Selznick, has enthralled viewers around the globe with its technical brilliancy, stunning visual effects and its moving tribute towards the origin of cinema. The opening scene is a testament as to why the movie was awarded an Oscar for cinematography. The transforming of the intricate clockwork mechanism into the beautiful streets of Paris was simply breathtaking. But where it emerges victorious warrior in the arena of visual effects, it turns out to be a cunning con artist in playing with our expectations. The movie explores the dream like aspect of cinemas and hence is a bit dream
Though I believe Steinbeck does an outstanding job in the novel to set the reader’s imagination on many aspects such as the time period, what George and Lennie look like, and how other characters interact with George and Lennie, I found that Sinise does an unbelievable job at visually setting each scene just as Steinbeck meant it to be. In the movie you can actually see and hear things that you probably would not catch on to in the book. For example there are the facial expressions from the talented actors and actresses. The music soundtrack of “Of Mice and Men” is very well composed. At the very beginning of the movie, a spirited mood was set in the audience when we saw Lennie and George running away from these men who were chasing them.
He dealt with issues which crop up in every day life, and many films have been made either about or including Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" is just one example. The reason films are made with them in, is because people like the idea behind the story, that it is somehow possible to change your appearance and do evil things. These are the reasons why "The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" will always be a relevant text in today's life, and in the future.
People during this time valued the escapism movie provided. More than that movies maintained the social reality at that time. Movies were realistic of the... ... middle of paper ... ...ction code like the depression was a thing of the past. Ratings such as NC-17, R, PG-13 and PG became the new regulating code for production companies. From the description of both of these codes, it seems to only be used as a censorship for movies.
Michael Chrichton indefinitely tops this long list of authors. Crichton's novels cover many subjects such as genetic engineering in Jurassic Park, sexual harassment in Disclosure, or Japan's threat to America in Rising Sun (Denby 12). I think that it is this wide variety of subject matter that keeps his readers coming back for more. Crichton's biggest success by far was the novel Jurassic Park. This book made a sales record in both the novel and on the screen (Turan 11).
