Tim Burton Style Analysis
Tim Burton Style Analysis Tim Burton has achieved such(prenominal) fame for his imaginative plastic films and his frizzy remakes of old classics such as Alice, Batman, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It is in Edward Scissorhands though, a dear story ab bulge out an outsider looking in, that Burton shows off his true skills as a director. Using point of view, setting, and motifs his film becomes non just a good movie, but an amazing classic. Burton uses point of view to show the characters vista and to fill in the missing gaps in the characters history in the bound of flashbacks.For example, one of the beginning slams in the movie show that the devout charwoman looks out the window and projects the other woman of the neighborhood flocking together, yet not inviting her to join them. It shows that the woman is an outcast, and is not included in things. Another face shows Edwards dejected face and then flashes over to a eyeshot of Kim goofing off with her boyfriend. It lets the viewer understand that Edward is interested romantic on the wholey in Kim, and thence upset that she is involved with someone else. This is a more subtle technique, and makes the scene more memorable to the viewer because they didnt come right out and say it.As opposed to telling the audience about something, Burton prefers to let them see for themselves. To show Edwards origins, Burton has Edward looking out the window and has a flashback about how he was created. Burton overly uses setting to a magical extent. Burton is an admirer of over-exaggeration, and this is evident in his distinction of the neighborhood and Edwardss castle. Whereas the community is bright a cheery, with houses of alter color and rather sm tout ensemble proportions, the castle is dark and opposing. All the houses in the community dont have more than four feet amidst them, and even the backyards are visible from the street.Burton also exaggerates the looming castles isolation by putting it on a mountain. Burton purposefully designs the community to be the homey, picturesque American dream while Edwards castle is the definition of gloom and doom. Yet when Peg first comes to the entrance of the castle, she encounters an amazing garden, much more beautiful than anything thing the people in the community could make, covering us that our perceptions arent al authoritys right. Burton often uses motifs in his movies and Edward Scissorhands is no different. Among many, one of the motifs Burton uses is conformity vs. ndividuality. Burtons movies all carry common threads, and like all of Burtons previous main characters, Edward is an outcast. He is a spark of creativity in an otherwise dull society. The citizens of the community choose to conform and the all have flat personalities. One is either a maneater or a motherly type or some other cliche, and that part seems to grok the rest of their personality. While Edward, who is so different from the way he looks to the way he ac ts, seems to be the only human character. His personality possesses many layers.The citizens also dress bright and cheery is a retro- title, while Edward with his uncontrollable vibrissa and pale skin looks like a gritty Goth. In conclusion, Burtons skill shines throughout the entire movie. Using point of view, setting, motifs, and other style techniques, Burton makes Edward Scissorhands a true hit. Tim Burtons unorthodox style gives new standards to the movie business, and delivers heartwarming stories about misconceptions and finding yourself. With Tim Burtons masterful skill and rascally humor, it becomes obvious why Edward Scissorhands is such a hit. Gigi Orphali 12-8-11 p. 5-6
