Analysis of a Scene in The Moulin Rouge

- Cinematography is the art or technique of motion-picture photography. The Moulin Rouge is a visually striking film, which incorporates brilliant elements of cinematography. One scene in particular that captures the brilliance of the cinematographer is the scene within which the “Unconscious Argentinean” takes it upon himself to explain the situation with an incredible, tango, adaptation of The Police’s song “Roxanne.” The lighting and other elements of this are gorgeous, as they eloquently convey the dark emotions of the situation: “Jealousy, anger, betrayal.” The different elements of cinematography, specifically, color, lighting, and the use of camera angles, bring to life the emotions, a...   [tags: Cinematography, Moulin Rouge]

The audience finds comfort in this pattern of reoccurring themes, character tropes, plot progressions, and general elements.

- Analysis of The Stepford Wives Mildly diverting is about the best that can be said for The Stepford Wives, a remake so pointless it could be about as entertaining as daytime tv.. Adapted from Ira Levin’s chilling novel as a comedy, as opposed to the nifty 70’s thriller which made the title a household phrase, the makers have missed out one crucial ingredient: Laughs. Nicole Kidman (Moulin rouge, practical magic) plays Joanna, a burnt-out TV executive who gets fired from her job and is driven to the 50’s suburb of stepford, where rich, style-free, god awful men live with impossibly beautiful and servile women....   [tags: The Stepford Wives Movies Film Essays]

This is a very unique way of upholding Nick’s narration as it parallels the problems that Fitzgerald himself went through, but it makes a contrast between the Nick we see on screen and the one we read about. The fact that he is in a clinic is absurd on its own, implying that he was much more submissive and vulnerable to the unruliness of the city that he had left behind than Fitzgerald had let on, completely incapable of moving on from the past (which sounds just like another character that he was very closely associated with, does it not?); this messes with things a bit, for there is not any room for two tragic heroes, both with a fatal imperfection in this storyline....   [tags: lavishness and opulence, fitzgerald]
