Gangster 1 Gangster 1 Presentation Transcript

  • Film analysis Gangster Number One Paul McGuigan 2000 Being John Malkovich Spike Jonze 2000 L4yer Cake Matthew Vaughn 2003
  • Sound, editing and camera angles, movement and position – Gangster No.1
      • Birds eye view of boxers
      • Use of two-shots to display relationship between the characters
      • Close-ups used of characters and props to create suspense
      • Low angle shots so as not to give anything away to the audience – keeps them guessing and therefore keeps them watching.
    • Non-diegetic music – old music. Implies this is set in the past and creates an almost elegant atmosphere, which juxtaposes what the audience are seeing on-screen.
    • Dialogue can also be heard between the characters.
    • This film uses cuts and blurry or faded transitions. The cuts are unnoticeable and suggest a linear narrative.
  • Mise-en-scene, representation and narrative
    • This film has a gangster narrative. This can be seen from the mise-en-scene – the opening scenes focus on a smoky room full of men in suits smoking cigars and drinking champagne from crystal glasses. There is a boxing ring in the middle of the room, which contradicts the elegant, wealthy atmosphere one initially gets from the film, as do the inner London accents of the characters.
    • You can see this is a British film as the colours of the boxing ring are red, white and blue.
  • Sound, editing and camera angles, movement and position – Being John Malkovich
    • Non-diegetic sound, such as orchestral and classical music, feature in this film, as well as diegetic sound like applause and dialogue.
    • Fairly slow paced – the clips are long and there aren’t any transitions apart from cuts. This gives it a slow moving, almost depressing feel.
    • This film features mainly low angles, mid-shots and long shots. This is done so that the audience get the correct feel of the film but are not able to fully identify with the character.
  • Mise-en-scene, representation and narrative
    • The narrative of this film features a psychotic man expressing himself through the use of puppets.
    • This film uses pathetic fallacy to express the nature of the film to the audience. Most of the shots are in darkness, which implies depression and fear.
    • Non-diegetic sound, such as narration and relaxing ‘chill out music’, feature in the opening of this film. This is done to set the scene, as the audience are given no introduction to the characters.
    • This film features mainly mid-shots and long shots. This is done so that the audience get the correct feel of the film but are not able to fully identify with the character. As we are not even told the protagonist’s name, it’s clear that they are trying to keep him somewhat anonymous or are reluctant to let the audience connect with the characters.

  • Mise-en-scene, representation and narrative
    • In the opening few scenes, there is a woman with red clothes – this implies passion and danger, setting the scene for the rest of the film, which belongs to the crime and drama genre. There are also people taking cocaine, which reinforces this image. There are, however, people in suits, which connotes a businesslike, professional feel.
