    Days Of Heaven Analysis

    • 780 Words
    • 4 Pages

    The film I have been assigned is called “Days of heaven” and it was directed by Terrence Malick. Days of heaven was released September 13th, 1978. I wasn’t very fond of Days of heaven, because although the art and scenery of the movie are well crafted that is not all it takes for a movie to be perceived as good. Unfortunately, due to the lack of dullness of the story itself I cannot acclaim Days of heaven a good movie. The film in my personal opinion is very bland and boring, despite the beautiful scenery and clips, which I must add can get a bit repetitive. The love story is cute, but it is not strong enough to carry a continuing focus for the, often times I was easily distracted, which is why I can’t quite say that I like the film. Nevertheless, the films artwork and scenery are fantastic and should be praised for that factor solely in my opinion. On that note, Days of heaven hold five important features in my opinion, these features represent the ideal I declare most relevant about this movie; the beauty and artistry depicted in the film. The first term is kick off, this term means the beginning of photography in a film, in my opinion Days of heaven began…

    Tree Of Life

    • 679 Words
    • 3 Pages

    Terrence Malick’s film The Tree of Life uses a unique mixture of linear and avant-garde techniques to prove his philosophy that everything in the universe is formed through both nature and through grace. On one hand, the film explores the dynamics of a family living in 1950’s American Suburbia, yet it also explores the vastness of the universe, from its mysterious creation to its glorious demise, and countless moments in between. Though a linear Hollywood film might make these events out to be…

    When watching and listening to the music in the film it reminded me when I would go to church and would sing songs in church. It seems like the director who is Terrence Malick choose a lot of religious music in the film. I think that God is in the music, but it never actually in the film Tree of Life.

    Dunkirk Movie Themes

    • 683 Words
    • 3 Pages

    I have to agree. With Dunkirk Nolan seems to have found the missing ingredient: that of distilled emotion, which he offers here with virtuosic flair. There is this point in the film where the aggressive strings and menacing percussion of the soundtrack stop abruptly and we hear an arrangement of Nimrod. The effect is more than soothing for we, the viewers, can identify at least with something human, something that seems to belong to our world. The use of soundtrack in Dunkirk is in fact so…
