Alfred Hitchcock 50 Years of Movie Magic

His films earned him the reputation of being the master of suspense, and after viewing two of his

A comparison of Alfred Hitchcock and Edgar Allan Poe Fear, terror and suspense are the most vivid emotions created by Poe’s stories and by Hitchcock’s films. Several themes are common to both: the madness that exists in the world, the paranoia caused by isolation which guides people’s actions, the conflict between appearance and reality along with the double aspect of the human nature, and the power of the dead over the living. Not only the themes are similar in both men’s work but also the det

Analysis of the Final Scenes of Alfred Hitchcock's Notorious After viewing Alfred Hitchcock's Notorious for the first time, the film did not strike me as particularly complex. Nothing specific about the film lodged itself in my brain screaming for an answer—or, at least, an attempted answer. Yet, upon subsequent viewings, subtle things became more noticeable. (Perhaps Hitchcock's subtlety is what makes him so enormously popular!) Hitchcock uses motifs and objects, shot styles and shifting point

The mass appeal that Psycho has maintained for over three decades can undoubtedly be attributed to its universality. In Psycho, Hitchcock allows the audience to become a subjective character within the plot to enhance the film’s psychological effects for an audience that is forced to recognise its own ne

Optional Sections The idea of 'Phone Booth' came from screenwriter Larry Cohen (Q: The Winged Serpent) originally which was taken from a film that was going to be taken place entirely within a phone booth by Alfred Hitchock in the 1960s. Alfred Hitchcock liked the idea but Alfred and Larry were unable to figure out a plot to keep the film confined to a phone booth. The idea of a sniper came to Larry in the late 1990's he was then able to write the script for 'Phone Booth' in under a month. The s

Two authors best who typify a Romantic style of writing are Edgar Allen Poe, and Nathaniel Hawthorne. Both authors identify their characters through the use of creative symbolism, colorful metaphors, and the use of the supernatural in their works. Like many authors of the seventeenth century Poe and Hawthorne stretched Realism beyond the edge of reality thereby developing a style of writing which today is commonly refer to as Romanticism. The use of the short story format in both The Black Cat

Yes, Carrey refines his career playing a test-tube TV star, but only inveterate stargazers will think he's the make-or-break component. If Truman becomes a classic it'll be as a witty film of ideas that's graced with a mesmerizing visual dimension. Truman Burbank (Carrey) lives in a town of Cloroxed streets (Seahaven) where no dog would dare drop a load. Its pristine decors are as ethereal as anything in Barton Fink and Field of Dreams, two cinematic visions that share Truman's production desig

Alfred Hitchcock uses continuity editing in Psycho to establish a link
Alfred Hitchcock uses continuity editing in Psycho to establish a link between normal reality and an abnormal psychotic state. With this style of editing Hitchcock is able to make the viewer feel at ease in the beginning of the film. He then slowly introduces the abnormal side of the movie. With this editing link, the audience feels more suspense as the dark sides of the characters appear. As the film begins, Hitchcock eases in with a clear sense of reality in Marion, the young, attractive secr

A Nightmare On Elm Street Intro to Film December 17, 1999 A Nightmare on Elm Street At a time when the stalker movie had been exploited to all ends and the image of mute, staggering, vicious killers had been etched into society’s consciousness to the point of exhaustion, a new kid entered the block. The year was 1984 and it was time for a new villain to enter into the horror genre. A villain that was agile, intelligent, almost inviolable yet viscous, and by all means deadly. A Nightmare on Elm S

Phone Booth A phone rings somewhere and someone has to answer it,” a voiceover at the beginning of Phone Booth assures us. Well, unless voice mail picks up, or the machine. But we’ll ignore that because in this remarkably simplistic psychological suspense film someone does pick up. That someone is Stu Shephard (Colin Farrell), a fast talking quick thinking public relations executive. Stu plays everything fast and loose. He entices his young assistant to work for free with promises of learning th
