The Shining Analysis

 

Introduction

Stanley Kubrick’s the shining was released in 1980, but has rinsen to popularity and investigation in the last few years.

Most noteably in the 2012 documetary room 237, which explored multiple theories around the meaning of the film.

Since information for this film was gathered from enthusatic bloggers a lot of information already exsits on this film, espically around interpretations of the apollo moon landings, holluacaust, native amercia and numbers theories.

So my aim with this video is to add some strength and evidence to a theory which is less explored in room 237, the ideas of History repeating itself and jack being a sexually abusive father.

BLUE VALENTINE - Film Analysis from MUST SEE FILMS on Vimeo.

Blue Valentine Analysis

Derek Cianfrance describes his first feature as form over content, meaning the style played a bigger role in the film than the story did. Brother Tied was his first film and has yet to be distributed. In this analysis I aim to show how he has used form and filmmaking choices to support the narrtive and performances in this film.

Derek Cianfrance went on to make The Place Beyond the Pines, but struggled for 12 years trying to make Blue Valentine. Named after the Tom Waits album. He wrote 67 drafts of the script, drew over 1000 stroyboards and wrote a manifesto.

As well as persitence and passion through throse 12 years he designed a manifesto which is basically the rules for the process in which he would make the film. We will breakdown the rules he chose and discuss the results.

Blue Valentine is a film of duality.

Inception - Film Analysis from MUST SEE FILMS on Vimeo.

Inception Analysis

 

Introduction

 

Spolier

 

Christopher Nolan’s Inception is an impressive piece of filmmaking. A well crafted puzzle which is delibiratley ambigious. Its story supports multiple interpritations of the films meaning.

Most theories can be traced to the take on the final scene, I aim to show a range of theories starting from the most obvious to more complex and hopefully help you see this film differently.

Interpritation 1

Alfred Hitchcock had a great quote that by starting a film with disorientation it leads to paulsability. On 1st viewing Inception is so intense with story, pacing, action and emotion that it rarely stops to let you ponder over meaning. It is therefore no surprise that some...

Blue Velvet Analysis

 

Spoliers

 

Introduction

David Lynch’s body of work shapes him as one of the strangest and most influential film directors. A great beleiver in discovering ideas through transendental meditation, he has the ability to communiate ideas through various elements of form, music and visuals. Making the meanings of his films always about discovery and never surface level.

Stanley Kubrick was also a beiliver in using cinema this way. Quote.

 

Opening

 

The opening moments of the film tell us everything we need to know about the films themes. The colour blue represents ‘secrets’ and...
