FILM STUDIES
Safe (Todd Haynes, 1995)
One of the weakest aspects of the film is its pacing. The film feels very slow and deliberate. which can be a bit off-putting for some viewers. Additionally, the film’s plot is fairly simplistic I and not particularly original. The weakest aspect of the film is its pacing.
I most identified with the main character, Carol, because I could relate to her feelings of isolation and anxiety (Turvey et al., 21-46). Carol is very introverted and private, and she starts to experience health problems that make her feel even more isolated from the world. I understand what it feels like to be anxious and alone, and I think that Carol’s journey is relatable. Additionally. Haynes did a great job of portraying Carol’s internal struggle realistically and compellingly.
If the director asked me for one suggestion to improve the movie, I would say that he should focus on making the plot more original and innovative. While the film is well-executed, the story is fairly simplistic and not particularly original. I think the film could be improved by making the plot more complex and unpredictable. Additionally, I think that the film could benefit from a faster pace.
The film’s beginning introduces us to the main character, Carol, and establishes her as a complex and interesting person. We see that she struggles with anxiety and isolation, and we get a sense of her internal conflict. Additionally, the beginning of the film establishes the film’s setting and tone (Turvey et al., 21-46). The film is set in the 1950s, and the beginning scenes perfectly convey the era’s social climate. The end of the film ties all of these elements together and provides a resolution to Carol’s story. We see her overcome her anxieties and find acceptance, which is a powerful and satisfying ending.
I ended up in the same place as the film’s main character, Carol. I could relate to her feelings of anxiety and isolation, and I think her journey is relatable. Additionally, Haynes did a great job of portraying Carol’s internal struggle realistically and compellingly.
The film’s journey is a fairly simple one. It follows the main character, Carol, as she struggles with anxiety and isolation. However, the film’s journey is also relatable and compelling. We see Carol’s internal struggle in a very realistic and relatable way, and we see her overcome her anxieties and find acceptance. This is a powerful and satisfying ending.
The Graduate (Mike Nichols, 1967)
The film’s strongest aspect is its comic relief contrasting the more serious themes. The film is set in the early 1960s and follows recent college graduate Benjamin Braddock as he tries to figure out his life and future.
The weakest aspect of the film is its predictability. The use of comic relief is effective in The Graduate because it allows the audience to take a break from the film’s more serious themes, such as love and betrayal. However, the plot’s predictability makes it difficult for the film to maintain its momentum.
I most identified with Benjamin Braddock because I related to his feelings of confusion and uncertainty about his future. I also appreciated how the film showed his journey of self-discovery and growth.
I suggest that the film focus more on Benjamin’s inner struggles and less on the external conflict. This would make the film more relatable and engaging for the audience.
The film’s beginning introduced the main characters and established the central conflict. This made the film’s ending more satisfying because it resolved the conflict believably. I ended up in the same place as the film because it reaffirmed my belief that self-discovery is a lifelong process (Turvey et al., 21-46). I think this is an important message to take away from the film.
The film’s journey concerns a young man’s search for identity and purpose. Benjamin Braddock struggles to figure out what he wants to do with his life and where he belongs in the world. He has an affair with an older woman. Mrs Robinson, which leads him to realize that he does not want to end up like her. He eventually falls in love with Mrs Robinson’s daughter. Elaine, and they marry. The film ends with Benjamin and Elaine driving off into the sunset, symbolizing Benjamin’s new found sense of direction and purpose.
Dziga Vertov’s Kino Eye (1924)
The film’s strongest aspect is the way it captures the everyday life of people in the Soviet Union in the 1920s.The weakest aspect of the film is its lack of narrative coherence. The film is a series of vignettes that don’t necessarily follow a linear story. This can make difficult to follow for some viewers.
I most identified with the film’s protagonist, the Kinks, because they are constantly on the move, filming everything they see. I also identified with them because they constantly question the status quo and challenge authority. The beginning of the film, with its fast-paced editing and chaotic images, prepared me for the end of the film, which is similarly fast-paced and chaotic. I ended up in a different place than I started because the film led me on a journey through the Soviet Union that was unlike anything I had ever seen.
The film’s journey is through the Soviet Union in the 1920s, a time of great change and
upheaval. The film documents the everyday lives of the people living in the Soviet Union, as well as the political and social changes that were taking place.

Silence of the Lambs (Jonathan Demme, 1991)
I found the film’s strongest aspect to be the performances of both Jodie Foster and Anthony
Hopkins. They both brought intensity and realism to their respective roles, drawing me into the
story.
I found the weakest aspect of the film to be its pacing. The film felt a bit too slow for my taste, and I found myself getting a bit bored at times.
I most identified with Jodie Foster’s character, Clarice Starling (Turvey et al., 21-46). I
could relate to her determination and drive to catch the killer, even when everyone around her doubted her. I empathized with her as she was constantly underestimated and dismissed because of her gender.
If the director asked me for one suggestion to improve the movie, I would say to pick up the pace a bit. The film would benefit from being a bit more fast-paced and exciting. Additionally. I would suggest adding more development to the relationship between Clarice and Hannibal Lecter. I think their scenes together were some of the best in the film, and I would have liked to see more of them.
The film’s beginning prepared me for the end of the film by introducing me to the two main characters and giving me a glimpse into their respective mindsets. I got to see Hannibal Lecter as
a cold, calculating killer and Clarice Starling as a driven and determined FBI agent. This helped
me understand the dynamics of their relationship and how the film’s events would play out. I ended up in the same place as the film, so I was both horrified and captivated by the events that unfolded. The film did a great job of building suspense and tension, and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.
The film’s journey is one of suspense and horror, as we follow Clarice Starling as she tries to track down a serial killer known as “Buffalo Bill”. The film takes us on a suspenseful ride as we see Clarice put herself in danger time and time again to catch the killer. Along the way, we also get insight into the mind of Hannibal Lecter, who is helping Clarice with the case. In the end Clarice successfully catches the killer, but not without cost.
Hitchcock (Sacha Gervasi, 2012)
The film’s strongest aspect is its depiction of the creative process behind some of Hitchcock’s most famous films. The film’s weakest aspect is its portrayal of Hitchcock’s personal life, which feels somewhat one-dimensional and uninteresting.
I most identified with Hitchcock’s wife, Alma, who is depicted as a loyal and supportive partner throughout the film. I also appreciated the film’s portrayal of her as a strong and independent woman in her own right.
I would suggest that the film focus more on Hitchcock’s creative process and less on his personal life. I think this would make for a more interesting and compelling story. The film’s beginning is fairly light-hearted, focusing on Hitchcock’s early career and his working relationship with Alma. However, the film’s tone gradually becomes more serious as Hitchcock begins to struggle with the making of Psycho. The film’s ending is, therefore, quite dark as it culminates in the death of Hitchcock’s daughter.
I ended up in the same place as the film, which is to say, I was left feeling somewhat ambivalent about Hitchcock himself. On the one hand, he was a brilliant and innovative filmmaker. On the other hand, he was also a rather selfish and manipulative person.
The film’s journey is largely centered on Hitchcock’s struggle to make Psycho a highly controversial and experimental film at the time. The journey culminates in the film’s critical and commercial success despite its initial challenges.
Scream (Wes Craven, 1996)
The strongest aspect of the film is its ability to subvert expectations. The film is full of Styles jump scares and suspenseful moments, but it also features a clever plot that keeps viewers guessing.
The weakest aspect of the film is its reliance on shock value. Some of the scares are cheap and rely too heavily on jump scares.
I most identified with Sidney Prescott, the film’s main character. Sidney is a survivor who vis as is constantly being pursued by danger (Turvey et al., 21-46). I related to her strength and resilience in the face of adversity.
If the director asked me for one suggestion to improve the movie, I would say to focus more on the suspense and less on the shock value. The film is at its best when it builds suspense and keeps viewers guessing The film’s beginning prepared me for the end of the film by gradually introducing the idea that anyone could be the killer. The film starts with a scene of someone being killed, but the killer’s identity is not revealed until the end. This sense of suspense and mystery is carried throughout the film.
I ended up in the same place as the film, which is to say, I was still left with a sense of suspense and mystery. The film is clever and well-crafted, and it left me wanting more. The film’s journey is one of suspense and mystery. The film starts with a scene of someone being killed, but the killer’s identity is not revealed until the end. This sense of suspense and mystery is carried throughout the film. The film takes the viewer on a rollercoaster of emotions, from fear to suspense to relief. Ultimately, the film leaves the viewer with a sense of suspense and mystery.
Alien (Ridley Scott, 1979)
The strongest aspect of the film is its suspenseful and scary atmosphere.
The weakest aspect of the film is its slow pacing. I think the film is a classic and a must watch for all fans of the horror genre.
I most identified with the character of Ripley because she is the one who seems the most level-headed and capable of dealing with the situation. I also appreciated her badass attitude and determination to survive.
I suggest that the director make the film a bit more fast-paced, particularly in the beginning. I think this would help to keep viewers more engaged.
The film’s beginning does a good job setting up the premise and introducing the key characters (Turvey et al., 21-46). We see the ship, the Nostromo, and the crew going about their daily routines. There is a sense of foreboding from the beginning, which makes the ending shocking.
I ended up in the same place because I was already familiar with the story. I think the film did a good job of building suspense and keeping me engaged. The film’s journey is one of suspense and terror, as the crew of the Nostromo is slowly picked off by the alien. The film does a good job of building tension and keeping the viewer on the edge of their seat. The ending is shocking and gruesome, making it all the more effective.
Truth or Dare (Alek Keshishian, 1991)
The strongest aspect of the film is the candidness of Madonna and her dancers. The film gives an intimate look at their lives and relationships, both professional and personal.
The weakest aspect of the film is its lack of focus. The film jumps from backstage footage of Madonna’s Blond Ambition Tour to interviews with her family and friends to home movies from her childhood.
I most identified with Madonna herself. I admire her for her confidence and willingness to push boundaries (Turvey et al. 21-46). I also related to her struggles with her family and her Relationships.
I suggest the director focus on one aspect of Madonna’s life: her career or personal life. The film feels scattered and could use more of a narrative focus.
The film’s beginning sets up Madonna’s image as a strong, independent woman. She is shown working hard on her Blond Ambition Tour and making decisions about her career. This prepares the viewer for the film’s end, which focuses on Madonna’s personal life and her relationships with her family and friends.
I ended up in the same place as the film(Turvey et al., .21-46). I admire Madonna for her confidence and her willingness to push boundaries. I also related to her struggles with her family and her relationships.

The film’s journey is Madonna’s journey. It begins with her working hard on her Blond Ambition Tour and deciding about her career. It then jumps to interviews with her family and friends and home movies from her childhood. The film then focuses on Madonna’s personal life and relationships with her family and friends. The film ends with Madonna’s family and friends talking about her and wishing her well.
