The Works of Dylan Thomas Thesis Statement: Dylan Thomas, renowned for the unique brilliance of his verbal imagery and for his celebration of natural beauty, applies his own unnecessarily complicated and obscure style of writing to his poetry, stories, and dramas. I. Dylan\'s obscure poems contained elements of surrealism and personal fantasy, which is what draws readers to them to reveal the universality of the experiences with which they are concerned. A. 18

Part of the underlying theme of this movie as explained by Truffaut himself is, ... to portray a child as honestly as possible...(Writing About Film, 1982).

Freuds Oz: Freudian Views In The Wizard Of Oz Freud\'s Oz: Freudian Views in The Wizard of Oz The film The Wizard of Oz is definitely about the concept of returning home. This is made clear throughout the film. Dorothy\'s entire time in Oz is spent trying to get back home to Kansas. Then when she gets back home she tells Aunt Em that all I kept saying to everybody was ‘I want to go home.\' This fits perfectly with the time, 1939, that The Wizard of Oz was produced.

More surprising is the fact that this still unnerving horror classic was directed by Alfred Hitchcock, a filmmaker who never relied upon shock values until this film. Here Hitchcock indulged in nudity, bloodbaths, necrophilia, transvestism, schizophrenia, and a host of other tabo

Citizen Kane By Orson Wells Citizen Kane By many, Citizen Kane is one of the greatest films ever made. Orson Wells, at age 25, directed, produced, and starred in this film. Citizen Kane is a memorable film for countless reasons. The film brought about controversy because it fictionalized the life of William Randolph Hearst, a powerful newspaper publisher. The film draws remarkable parallels with his life and his relationship with his mistress. There is also speculation that the film is loosely b

Analyzing Moulin Rouge
Analyzing Moulin Rouge
Analyzing Moulin Rouge Moulin Rouge is celebrated for its art direction, music, and performances. One of its biggest endeavors is the set design. With a combination of real sets and computer generated images, Moulin Rouge manages to showcases a 19th century Paris, France as a world of moral decadence but undeniable beauty. The set design further pushes the message of France, at this time, being a place of plague, poverty and sin; but also a place of art, music and beauty. In the introduction of

The cinematography is stunning. Citizen Kane is about those images that we all reflect and project, the sum total of which -the impressions we make on other people- are all we that leave behind us. That central, unsolveable riddle of personality is at the core of what makes Citizen Kane so endlessly watc

His choice of black and white film for 1960 was regarded within the film industry as unconventional since color was perhaps at least five years the new standard. But this worked tremendously well. After all, despite the typical filmgoer\'s dislike for black and white film, Psycho is popularly heralded among film buffs as his finest cinematic achievement; so much

Mise-en-scene Mise-en-scene is the principle by which a piece of film will derive its meaning wholly from what happens in the single shot and not from the relationship between two shots. For example the director might include shots with various composition, angle, depth, movement, and lighting. Citizen Kane has many good examples to show Mise-on-scene usage. The scene that I believe is the most significant and powerful mise-en-scene that I have this seen this semester exists in this movie. This
