More interesting to me are those less common occasions where silence is noticeable, where the fact that no one speaks becomes crucial to the viewer's experience. As Michel Chion remarks It was necessary to have sounds and voices so that the interruption of them could probe more deeply into this thing called silence. 1 The opening sequence of Howard Hawks's Rio Bravo (1959) shows Dude slinking into the saloon, his degradation having reached the point where he'd consider digging a coin out of the spittoon to be able to buy a drink. Neither Dude nor his taunter speaks all of their interactions are pantomimed. The silence rivets our attention, and it also mirrors how Dude's alcoholism has removed him from normal human communion. Similarly, the robbery at the beginning of Blake Edwards's The Pink Panther (1964) surprises and engages us with its prolonged silence, making us anxious as to whether the burglar will succeed, wondering if and when alarms will sound. When nothing is said for a...
The Dark Knight (Christopher Nolan, USA) This is a truly disturbing dystopia with an unforgettable performance from Heath Ledger. Los Bastardos (Amat Escalante, Mexico France USA) A home-invasion movie, both brutal and subtle, which subverts all the stereotypes of Mexico and the USA. The Orphanage (Juan Antonio Bayona, Spain France, 2006) A Spanish horror film that shows you need no gore and no special effects to scare and to move an audience.
As the 1990s wore on, however, it became clear that however cynical Americans may have grown about the justice system, they were even more frightened of criminals. After years of polls in which fewer than 10 percent of respondents listed crime as the nation's most important problem, it abruptly shot to the top of the 1994 Gallup Poll, with some 40 percent of respondents listing it as most important.26 The recreational use of drugs, taken for granted by a generation of upper-class college students in the 1960s and 1970s, had been stigmatized by crack cocaine, whose low street price and well-publicized rush of euphoria made it the drug of choice among the black underclass. As legislators imposing mandatory minimum sentences, and police officers under heavy pressure to clean out crack houses and preserve decaying cities moved against the epidemic with a series of Wars on Drugs, the prison population skyrocketed. For the first time since Prohibition, a large number of Americans were...
Games like The Sims highlight the fact that digital simulations are complex and dynamic systems that create increasingly convincing representations of human behavior and sociability. The Sims is one of the most popular desktop computer games and has significant proliferation through photo albums that are posted on the Web (Sims version of 'my home page'), 'skins' (character or environment texture maps that players can design and import into the game) and the development of theme-based communities in The Sims Online. 5 Many players develop Sim households that explore their own family and relationship situations and develop significant bonds with their simulated creatures. The gameplay then occupies a similar position to the observational documentary in constructing the appearance of a lived situation. Indeed Mark J.P Wolf puts forward the argument that a simulation might be special mode of documentary - a subjunctive documentary in the way that it employs simulation models to offer...
More often, however, actors tend to work closer to familiar territory. Dick Powell opted for terse thrillers and war films, such as The Enemy Below. Lawrence Olivier favored Shakespeare and directed Henry V and Hamlet. Powell and Olivier proved audacious within their familiar territory. Veering away from familiar territory can result in underappreciation and underfunding. Both Ida Lupino ( The Burglar ) and John Cassavetes ( Shadows ) developed underground reputations as directors, but their projects proved difficult to finance and neither actor could sustain a career as a director.
Action and adventure form a key component of early and silent cinema. At a relatively early stage of film history, elements of chase and pursuit were developed into basic narratives through innovations in editing, evident in such important cinematic reference points as The Great Train Robbery (1903) in the United States and A Daring Daylight Burglary (1903) in the United Kingdom. Both titles involve crime, some form of pursuit, and the ultimate capture of the thieves in question by the forces of law. The sensational appeal of crime and pursuit remain evident throughout the silent era. Film historians such as Richard Abel and Ben Singer have done much to map
When Pepel's and the Baron's separate narrative trajectories combine, the film establishes its primary emotional orientation, which more resembles the ironic bemusement of the earlier aristocratic sections. When Pepel surprises the Baron in his home, the Baron in turn surprises the burglar with the offer of food and drink. They discuss whether Pepel should accept the unusual offer, and the Baron persuades him that taking food would simply be another kind of stealing, which therefore would not violate the thief's sense of propriety. The Baron further offers Pepel anything he wants in the house, because all his belongings will soon be repossessed anyway. They sit down to an all-night conversation and game of cards as the two thieves from different classes discover their affinity for each other.
