I’m going to be analyzing these techniques in the films; “El laberinto de fauno,” “Tesis” and “Te doy mis ojos.” Alejandro Amenabar used a lot of these symbols and objects to represent hidden meanings throughout his thriller piece about snuff films. He uses a lot of visual objects, colors and symbols in order to add to the excitement of the film as well as add to the viewer’s anxiety during the dark and “creepy” scenes. He uses clever camera angles and lighting in order to create an ominous feeling throughout the film. This is including the point of view shots and his uses of shadows ... ... middle of paper ... ...st control over Spain which is represented by the tree. So it’s stating that the oppressive party is killing their beautiful country of Spain.
“Give the audience pleasure, the same pleasure they have when they wake up from a nightmare.” This unusual statement made by Alfred Hitchcock, accurately represents a major theme in his style of film. Hitchcock, otherwise known as the master of suspense, incorporates multiple factors into his works, which have now become known as Hitchcockian elements. For example, Rear Window, a story which takes an average, small town, condensed neighborhood, and places a murder scene in the middle of it all demonstrates the Hitchcockian idea that “no place is safe”. The film takes place in L.B. Jefferies’ apartment, where Mr. Jefferies, an injured photographer fears he has witnessed a murder and spies on his neighborhood to put the pieces together.
I would like to inform you about the reasons of his ascention to the title Master of Suspense. Let us talk about how Alfred Hitchcock created Suspense and shock through disorienting the audience. one of the most important elements of suspensehe used is the right Position of the Camera to provide the appropriate perspective upon which the audience will evaluate the characters.

Often one wonders how the great minds of our time were inspired.
And the blood makes us assume that she is dead, without even showing the body. He builds suspense without showing the specific details of a scene. Plot Twists Hitchcock uses plot twists in his films to give the viewers the idea that something going on is happening, but in reality, it’s not. For example, in Psycho, Norman Bates’ mother really turners out to be Bates himself. And for Dial M for Murder, the key that was left on the stairs was used to help the detective catch Tony.
Wilder takes ownership of his works and each one of his films reflects off of each other in some way. An auteur is an “author” of their work and they have certain characteristics that help to define that it is their work. Wilder enjoys mixing cynicism and comedy in not only his characters but also through the theme of the movie. Wilder’s talent with being able to work with famous yet difficult actors and actresses is another reason to call him an auteur. He was able to create unique characters that no other film had.
Shortly afterwards, Alicia and the other agent T.R Devlin (Cary Grant) found out the Nazis are developing a nuclear project. Meanwhile, Alex also figure out his wife is spying on him. Thus, he gets lost in that situation, because he might be murdered if his colleagues knew he is a betrayer whose wife is an agent. Therefore, he seeks help from his mother, and figures out a solution: to make Alicia die slowly and without other people’s suspicious. The conversation ends with an incomplete sentence of Alex’s mother who says, “She could become ill and she may ill for a time, until…” Thereafter, a poisoning plan is practicing on Alicia without her awareness.
‘Das Leben der Anderen’ (The Lives of Others) is a striking example of how a director can convey narrative links within a film by employing various styles and film techniques. The Lives of Others relies upon these visual means to assist with the telling of the story as much as it relies upon the script. In this selected sequence of the film, several narrative links are drawn here to form the conclusion of ‘Operation Lazlo’. These narrative links are further cemented by Donnersmarck’s use of various lighting styles, diegtic and non-diegtic sound, revealing camera shots and intricate mise-en-scene. In order to analyse this sequence, the narrative links that are drawn here must be addressed.
Some people that not account the story through the aspects of war and history may see this movie as a fiction movie due to its beliefs of people getting brainwashed or maybe a drama due to the ending. Others may see this movie as a threat to the president at that time, because one of the murder tentative was at one of the presidential candidates in the movie, which ended up to be a murder to the mother that was hypnotized her son and her elected husband. In details, Raymond (the son) was brainwashed by the Soviet Union and surprisingly his mother was also working with the Soviet Union. Indeed, the outcome finished with her assassination giving that it was an anti-communist movie from the
Gatsby’s death. Every alteration made was for a reason. Mr. Luhrmann made these changes in order to keep the viewer intrigued in the story. Heightening Mr. Gatsby’s death was a key asset to the movie that strengthened the relationship between the viewer and Mr. Gatsby. Many novels are transformed by Hollywood in order to make a film that appeals to the audience.
The use of these common patterns and themes enriches the movie and its plot that is brought upon to the audience. It’s these details that many readers and viewers absentmindedly overlook in stories and movies. Each movie is creatively constructed and produced to entertain the audience and allow them to interpret the film in their own, unique
