You confuse the objective analysis and the subjective opinion.
because saying you believe something was symbolic of X isnt subjective......................
First you must analyse the movie and in this proces you reach the conclusion that the tunnel scene in Skyfall is rebirth. Then you can - next paragraph in you film school paper - express whether you like the themes that thus are shown. Clearly your professor have pointed that out to you.
noo......................... have you ever taken a film class or have any formal education???
you would analyze different elements (including ones i mentioned in my other post) and argue why they back up your belief that the tunnel scene in SKyfall is rebirth
THEN there would BE NOT DO YOU LIKE IT SECTION. because its a freaking analysis, not a blog....
its like writing an essay about some political event then writing a paragraph about "well did you like it"
You seem like a person who is strong on opinion but weak on analysis. Too much opinion is really a downward spiral even if I share your views on politics and religion.
you literally just said in a film essay, you would write a section saying if you "like the themes". you have 0 credibility.
Marnie has zero subtext since everything is explained. The Birds, on the other hand, is loaded with narrative symbols and subtext.
Marnie has zero subtext............... hahahahahahahhahaha my prof that gave me a 90 on the essay disagrees.
as well as all the other film articles i read from reputable sources..
But again, you didnt see it, so its not there. and everyones wrong except gorgs
If a mountain side is enough for you as a symbol (of what?) you should and could aim for deeper and more complicated values in cinema because it's there. Maybe when you grow older you will appreciate those things. The tilted mountain side in Brokeback Mountain is what I think of now in that beautiful film because it was so illustrative to the narrative but it really didn't add anything to the story, it just reflected it.
never said a mountain side is a symbol. god you are dumb arent you??
However if you stick to Wes Anderson, Hitchcock and Tarantino, you have a chance of coming out all right. The other movies you write about here and in your former profile will get you nowhere.
hitchock, tarintino, Scorcese and Wes ANderson are my favourites.
but again you just showed how inept at actually analyzing films you are..
if half the film textbooks i read were about subtext and symbols, the other half was about the things i mentioned in the post above..
and yet you choose to ignore a massive element of cinema...
Then you can - next paragraph in you film school paper - express whether you like the themes that thus are shown.
never going to forget this gem hahahahahhahahahah. professors wanting you to write if you "liked something" in what is supposed to be a formal and scholarly essay.
We are taking about two different kinds of subtext.
I mean subtext, where there is a whole different kind of story told than the immediate narrative. The Birds is a great example.
Marnie however only contains symbols (e.g. the purse) that supports the narrative story already told, so calling it subtext would be an exaggeration - it's more fitting to call it symbols. It's one-dimensional. As Braad Thomsen, Hitchcock, p. 243, writes (my translation) "Marnie has both technically and thematically been criticized for being so naive that it borders on amateurism. ... There is no doubt that Hitchcock ... takes the privilege ... to tell a story as simply and directly as possible, to get bluntly down to business".
The reason I would place Skyfall in the first category is that those themes are not really part of the immediate story. Like Liman's Mr & Mrs Smith that really is about marriage, just covered in an assasination movie.
It's really shocking that the level of film school is as low as people not being able to interpret a metaphor as clear as rebirth in a tunnel sequence.
I'm not educated within cinema, even if it's a hobby that takes up far too much of my limited spare time, but in my profession as a lawyer, people also all the time mix their own opinions into what the law say. But I am a professional, so in taking about law matters, I really don't care who is good or bad, I am just interested in what the law says about it. And, about movies, so should you, besides working on how you address people in public internet fora.
