Arranging a nonlinear storyline, Tarantino tells of three interrelated stories of mobsters, thieves, and power that are equally filled with irony. The characters depicted voice absurd dialogue that unimaginably alters the traditional violence cliché. Strong, relatable characters are used to create a sense of reality and understanding. The film’s interest is heightened by various improbabilities and a wild series of events that only seem possible in Hollywood. Considerable time is exhibited understanding, getting to know, and relating to the characters, forming a more dramatic perception for the audience.
The film also incorporates themes of good vs. evil and right triumphing over wrong. Another explanation for the film’s mainstream s... ... middle of paper ... ...It had to be successful because of the handful of stars. Naturally people were to come and see this, as there are so many stars that the audience will like at least one to watch the film. In Ocean’s Eleven’s title sequence we learn that George Clooney is the main character as is Brad Pitt but we also learn that this is a crime film as it opens to a prison cell.
Being branded as uncompromisingly brutal this plausible plot incorporates legal terminology, reflected in the title which in turn adds to the ratiocination of the protagonist. Authentically set in the urban world with the inclusion of twists, red herrings, the need to expose villains as well as the overall contrast of good and evil this film is the ultimate compilation of deception and mystery. I stand before you in confidence to say that Beresford has created the quintessential crime film, its elements being highly accountable for its success. The director of any film is required to not only conform a captivating plotline to great screenplay but also include multimodal attributes which aid in t... ... middle of paper ... ...ent areas of crime but they do contain the common element of suspense and candidly, ‘Double Jeopardy’ triumphs in this area. With Ashley Judd being presented with the Blockbuster Entertainment Award ‘Favorite Actress – Suspense’ and the film being nominated twice for the Saturn Award ‘ Best Action/Adventure/Thriller Film’ it is fair to say that ‘Double Jeopardy’ captivated those lovers of crime instantaneously, drawing them in and making them unaware of the outside world.
In addition, the facts within the film are a vital preparation for the rest of the story. The exposition for “Tropic Thunder” is very creative yet simple and very comical. It’s an advertisement of movie trailers of the three main characters in the film. First, was the rapper Alpha Chi... ... middle of paper ... ... hell but Hollywood is even worse. 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.
For example, the tasteless perfect ending is eliminated and replaced with an unconventional one which only adds more suspense to the film. Also the main idea that no place is safe, the use of charismatic villains and a blurred line of good and evil remains intact through out this film as well. It is seen in the setting of a suburban town and even the dialogue as well. Also Lang true status remains a mystery to the public allowing him to stay charismatic, and even the protagonists use unethical means to achieve theirs goals. I believe Pellington honored Hitchcock’s classic elements while adding his own style to the film.
The film uses many Hitchcockian elements, but while imitating it, Arlington Road simply does not live up to the standards of an iconic thriller as established by Hitchcock, such as Rear Window. Alfred Hitchcock has forever left his mark on not only the thriller genre, but the entire movie industry with a list of thematic and stylistic elements that he regularly employed. Primary among these are: the restoration of moral order, the charismatic villain, the clever undermining of institutions of social order, divulgence of suspense heightening information, relatable protagonists, and POV editing. A perfect example of the Hitchcock thriller is Rear Window; and as previously stated, Arlington Road falls short in matching this. However, Arlington Road does utilize some of these Hitchcock characteristics well.
One of the most recognizable motifs in Hitchcock’s work is the concept of the audience as a voyeur to the action of the story, a theme that did well to increase the suspense of the story. Hitchcock applied this technique as a means to blur the line between those perceived as innocent versus those perceived as guilty. He engaged the audience in a way that made even the darkest soul seems slightly endearing; he made the viewer’s privy to secrets that sometimes even the characters on screen weren’t aware of. A recurring theme in several movies, such as 39 Steps, The Lady Vanishes, and Vertigo, voyeurism is perhaps best used two of Hitchcock’s most recognizable works—Psycho and Rear Window. Many believe that the role of voyeurism helped establish the success of these films.
Among his influences are French New Wave cinema and also Italian neorealism, which along with his Italian Catholic upbringing, has served as the basis of many motifs and themes within his films. His work tends to integrate the themes of Italian American identity, the Catholic concepts of guilt and redemption, modern crime, and often deals with a protagonist who is a violent outsider living on the fringe of society. He is also known for the distinctive trademarks in his filmmaking style, which often features excessive violence and profanity, long tracking shots, and voice-over narration. The Wolf of Wall Street is a black-comedy film based on the exploits and memoir of Jordan Belfort, a corrupt New York stockbroker who commits fraud on Wall Street in the 1990s. At face value, the film seems like an unapologetic bacchanalia of drugs, sex, profanity, and excess.
A combination of Macbeth’s ambition and paranoia lead to many senseless murders. He killed his best friend Banquo out of fear and he senselessly murdered Macduff’s family. The hallucination of Banquo’s ghost is a representation of Macbeth 's guilt, all of Macbeth’s guilt is manifested in the ghost. Macbeth states that he feels guilty because of the murders. “Ay, and since too, murders have been performed Too terrible for the ear.” (III, iv, 80-81) Seeing the ghost of Banquo is the breaking point for Macbeth.
Not only does the film evoke pain, worry, and cynicism, but also love, humor, and hope. Russell tackles the issues of mental illness, marital failure, and love brilliantly and with satisfying results. Russell choice of the script is the first great accomplishment because the subject of mental issues is such an unlikely source of comedy. Nonetheless, Russell handles it impeccably. Unsurprisingly, he was nominated for an Oscar in the category of best director, and best screenplay.
