Film Elements Analysis
Choose a pair of films to review from the options below. Compare and contrast your chosen pair examining the directors use of the film elements we have discussed: Narrative, Cinematography, Editing/Montage, Sound Design, Mise-en-Scene, Genre, and Director Style. In doing this analysis, we accept the basics of the critique – that everything is in the film on purpose to make a point or statement, or effect the viewer in some way; and that the film can say something about who the Director is.
