Scarface 1983 Notes

Scarface PosterMy research notes on Scarface 1983..

My discussion on the 1983 film Scarface directed by Brian De Palma. The scene I intend to focus on is the final scene of the film which lasts for about ten minutes. I aim to talk about the following film structure, mise-en-scene, camera movement, sound and narrative function. A little summary and backdrop of some of the issues surrounding the film are also essential for critical analysis.

Brian De Palma’s films share the same techniques, but there are many differences. The director seems to have a passion of gangster film producing “Scarface.” (Scarface). The film conclude with main mafia gangster paying for his crimes, but in very different ways. The suspense music and film techniques used in De Palma’s film is very noticeable. One of Brian De Palma’s strongest points in his film making techniques is his ability to create as much suspense as he can.

There are some issues of the American Dream and the Cuban crime wave to consider and how they intersperse together in the film and what influence they had caused within the visual culture.

Hello all and

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

welcome to Z3bo’s blog….

 

I will start off with my hobbies and interests, these are my main interests, and a hobby in Motorsport and Sports. This began in the early age of 10, where I use to watch alot of Motorsport, and how they had the technique and skills to drive fast at a steady pace. The noises of the engines, made me feel as if I was driving around a track and going fast around the bends. I then started to seek information through the net, and talking to friends who also had these interests. I got more and more curious as to how every bit’s and peices works together, to make the suck, squeeze, bang, blow out of an engine. This is how my interest’s for Motorsport  and sports began, and still is now.

My 2 main hobbies, are sports and motorsports. Here are a few pics which I have found and uploaded. Some of the photo’s will show and explain each image.

My name is Zuhayb, also known as Zeb. I’ve been born and bred in Bristol and know every single place that exists in my City. I am a student, studying Graphic Design in University of Newport.

The reason I chose this course, because it has more practical side of work, which I intend to enjoy and feel comfortable. My designs were mainly based on vehicles, and engines. This is what I am most passionate about, and want to share my thoughts to the outside world. I have been passionate about cars since childhood, and been taught by my father. My father was an enthusiast , and there I use to watch him fiddling with the car, and repairing most things. Thats how I got more and more curious, and today I have gained a lot of knowledge, and know how to repair most parts on cars without any help.

I am a huge enthusiast of VW also known as Vee Dub. I am a member of three VWAudi forums, and currently having owned a VW my vehicle has been slightly changed by modifying it. I have based my car as a project car.
