  1. 1. His response to the landlady regarding the 2 men, seem an odd way to respond to the fact that they may or may not be his friends - you see an under lying anger. When the camera pans to the loose moneyI felt it showed a reckless attitude an I do not care, is he possible a psycopath? He then confidently walks towards the 2 men as if to test them and show his fearlessness. 2. I find two film noir elements. Film Noir as a style and as a movement or cycle. 3. Once sound entered the film industry, I can't imagine a film without great music! In the opening scene we see some children pla
  2. 1. Alice walks into the store and greeted by her father and a customer. While she acknowledges them she is clearly preoccupied by her own thoughts. The customer continues to talk but the camera is focused on Alice's face. We understand that something is wrong. 2. The conversation continues throughout the scene. Every so often Alice looks up as to acknowledge what the conversation is about. When her father asks Alice to cut the bread, the way she slowly reaches for the knife..and all of a sudden the conversation changes to one word, "knife". 3. Subjective Sound is sound that a char
  3. 1. Character. We are introduced to many different characters in this scene. What should I observe about each character? 2. I immediately felt that he was not just another casual observer. When he met the skiers gaze, why did his facial expression change momentarily? That creates suspicion 3. My answer to the similarity and difference between the Pleasure Garden and The Man Who Knew To Much is the same. POV. In the both films, the scene is full of action. We view the audience from the POV of a character on stage in the Pleasure Garden and the POV in the film The Man Who Knew To M
  4. The effect that I experienced regarding the POV dolly shots/tracking was a heightened awareness of the mindset of the characters. Example, the boys enter the head masters office. Visually their faces reflected two entirely different feelings. One seemed frightened and bewildered the other somewhat menacing, knowing. This helped create a suspenseful atmosphere. Hitchcocks use of the POV shots/tracking is an incredible visual aid to the viewer! It sets the tone. The use of montage is very clearly used. Crosscutting between different spaces/actions. In the Ring, what her husband wa
  5. 1. By creating suspense at the climax. He achieves this by crosscutting between different spaces and actions. 2. Subjectivity. By having us view what is going on in the mind of the main character. This lures us into the psychological mind of the character. 3. First he sets up the main character ( a star) that we would view as an everyday person. We view him in a familiar setting a meeting. Simple for us to understand because we know it. Then starts the montage. The camera takes us on a tour of different rooms and the activities going on. I personally felt that the length of time w
  6. Yes I can see the Hitchcock touch! Starting with the view of the theater from backstage or the man smoking in front of a sign that says smoking is prohibited. Mysterious creates the possibility of danger. I agree on one level, but clearly, Hitch needed to hone his skills. I feel he used a bit of German Expressionism with a touch of Soviet Montage. I must admit that my silent film viewing has been limited but, YES is my answer! I had many questions that may have been answered if there was sound. In a comedic silent film, usually the actor is able to use facial expressions (exaggera
