Every film has always been open to interpretations of how they were created and to define its cinematic style. Filmmakers have their own way of making a film and creating their own piece of artwork by using specific editing sequences.Montage is when the filmmaker's production consists of a quick sequence of images in a motion picture to exemplify an association of ideas. In the film Psycho, the filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock uses montage. An example of film montage in the movie Psycho is when the filmmaker pans the camera across many skyscraper buildings, and after a series of numerous dissolves, randomly chooses to descend and infiltrate deeper into one of many windows in a cheaper, high-rise ...view middle of the document...

Faced with this spectacle, Hitchcock forces the audience to examine its conscious self in relation to the events that it had just subjectively played a role in. The master of suspense manipulates and directs the audience into identifying with the main character Marion and then with that character's timid murderer Norman voyeuristically implicating the audience with the universal, dark evil forces and mystery present in the film. Throughout the movie it clearly demonstrates the in-depth use of film montage by using numerous cuts in a scene to give the audience an idea of what's going on.Nosferatu by F.W. Murnau is an expressionistic film because of the use of art in which the intention is not to reproduce a subject accurately, but instead to portray it in such a way as to express the inner state of the artist such as using distortion and seeing what goes on inside the character's mind. One example proving that Nosferatu is an expressionistic film since in the beginning with Hutter (Gustav von Wangenheim), a real estate employee who receives an unusual assignment from his boss, the troll-like Knock (Alexander Granach). Knock tells Hutter that a new client, Count Orlok, wishes to leave his remote castle home and take up new lodgings nearby. Knock suggests that the abandoned house across the street from Hutter's would be ideal. Although we never see Knock meet Orlok in person, he becomes Murnau's institutionalized, spider-eating Renfield-equivalent. Orlok's letter of intent to Knock, written in runish occult characters, and Knock's referring to Orlok as "Master" before the vampire has arrived, make it evident that Knock is already manipulated by Orlok before the events of the film even began. The sinister in the film emerges early on in the film by seeing Vampire's influence on the characters. You can clearly see how this is distorted from actual reality.High school is a realistic film because it's a documentary of how the students were in 1968. The key focus of the film was to show the actual experience of high school during the Vietnam War. I...
