  • Robert De Niro: Film Analysis

    In the film, Robert De Niro, a well-known actor, plays the realistic monster tremendously. De Niro’s actions time and time again in the movie display non-human characteristics to entertain the viewer. Despite James Berardinelli’s review of “Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (United States, 1994)” (page. 1) , where he states “the creature seems almost the more “human “ of the two”, I personally think the monster portrays less human characteristics then Victor, as Victor shows human errors time and time again. Kenneth Branagh portrays the character of Victor Frankenstein, perfectly as he shows distress and emotion to what the monster has done to him. Helena Bonham Carter acts as Elizabeth and masters the character of Elizabeth. Bonham Carter’s emotion towards Victor really helps the viewer connect with the film. Overall I think the actors and actresses do a great job in “Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein” of showing emotion and pity towards other creating viewer sympathy. Kenneth Branagh mastered Mary Shelley’s novel of Frankenstein into a film. Branagh made the film intriguing through brilliant script and settings. In my opinion I feel that the 1994 film of Frankenstein and the novel are very similar except with a major plot twist at the end in the film. Although the film entertained me and got the plot…

The same masochistic tendency can be found in Raging Bull (1980), when Jake La Motta (played by Robert De Niro) submissively takes relentless beating from his opponent yet still…

  • Symbolism In Goodfellas By Scorsese And Anothe

    Nouvelle vague, and lifted to an even higher level. This resulted in the presence of mystical gaze in some of Scorsese’s films, but also in characters that were not traditionally clear cut. Even though he made films which could be considered progressive for its time, his female characters are very shallow, and show very little change in comparison to the average Hollywood film. Therefore, there is the absence of the male macho gaze, when talking about the male protagonists, which was present in…

Furthermore, he captures the personalities that he is projecting,…

  • Goodfellas Film Analysis

    “As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster. To me, being gangster is better than being president of the United States.” It is the first voice over line from Henry in Goodfellas; and it also sets the tone of the whole film. Martin Scorsese builds an incredible but also cruel gangster world in 146 minutes. Scorsese tells us a story from the angle of the most basic and lowest level gangsters. It is also the same story-telling angle in Mean Street. We can feel the main…
