Alfred Hitchcock — auteur Alfred Hitchcock — auteur What are some of the key stylistic features that identify Alfred Hitchcock as an auteur? Answer via the analysis of two or three Hitchcock films from different periods. The ways a film stages a shot, arranges a sequence, executes a scene, is almost directly linked to the director —- Auteur Theory Sarris, The Auteur Theory was developed by a French screenwriter named Francois Truffaut.
The auteur theory suggests that a director can use the commercial apparatus a filmmaking in the same way that a writer uses a pen, or a painter uses his paint.
Alfred Hitchcock plays this idea up in most of his movies where he make sure that he appears on screen in a brief cameos spot.
And what is even more interesting, is a symbolism behind certain cameos that reflects larger topics. The cage birds are no longer caged. Sarris, Technical Firstly, a great director needs technical competence and elementary flair in cinema.
The master of film language, same as novelist must have master of written language Sarris, If there is no mastership of technical, then not an auteur.
Technical- Mis-en-scene Look at hitchcock and technical competence with mis-en-scene cinematography editing and sound, so technically in the mis-en- scene which will relate to the style and personal meanign also the underlying meaning later on, in technical elements of Hitchcock ….
Women are almost always blonde: Technical element of sound: Secondly, the distinguishable personality is another a criterion of value to seen as an auteur. Over a group of films, the signature of style as recurrent characteristis Sarris, The films has the sense of belonging to the direcotor, that means the clearly relationship to the director by the judege of audiences in a way.
So once again, with censorchip and getting Personality and style of Alfred Hitchcock: One of the more problematic aspects of auteur theory is the question as to what constitutes personal style: Parallel comparisons between characters, sometimes being the wrong person.
So you have domineering and very intrusive mothers. In addition, Hitchcock embodies tons of sexuality in his films. For exmaple, the cigarette smoking at the beginning of psycho and Marion crane is standing around in her bra at the beginning this was extremely risky and pushing the boundaries of censorship to the almost boundary you could be.
Same thing happening in the birds where Melanie Daniels walks up into the attic and she becomes trapped and she must then be saved,so its constantly happening where women are always trapping the male then they get themselves into trouble and they have to be saved by the male that they were often trying to trap.
Also, transference of guilt, this can be seen in psycho from hte mother on to Norman Bates, and the same thing happening in the brids as the transference of guilt goes on to Melanie Daniels.
The third one of the auteur theory interior meanning, the cinema as an art. This deals with elevating cinema from a low art to a high art. And the director walks in with this kind of attitude towards life, an attitude towards the world and lifeand by seeing this attitude by creating this meaning by understanding this meaning, we can create a higher element of art, this can be seen through the technical level and the personality and style of the director on screen and that transfer meanning.
And even through the director may not have intended the meaning, it is the responsibility of the viewer, critics, and theorists to uncover meaning. Interior meaning in Hitchcock: Women cannot be trusted and may even represent castration this is the stuff written by Laura Mulvey, thus they should be tamed before they take control Sarris, So with Marion Crane we have to kill her because otherwise she will take control of us and we will become castrated.
In vertigo, you cant trust the main character the female, she has to be controlled because she is literally keeping Jimmy Stewart under a spell.
So women are never trusted in Hitchcock films,and they go so far as taking away all masculinity from the male. Interior meaning also in Hitchcock is about voyeurism and by being voyeuristic gives you power, and watching someone gives you power and by having that power to tame and repress sexuality.
The cinema is voyeuristic. Look at it and at the end of psycho you see the car coming out of the water and you know that Norman Bates it can.
In Hitchcock, evil is always present and cannot be completely ridden from the world. So in Hitchcock it is a responsibity of the male the protagonist male to take it upon oneself to move forward to fix things if anybody else tries to do it they are incompetent but if you do it.Feb 17, · When Marnie first came out, Alfred Hitchcock was firmly wedged in the center of a war between enemies and acolytes.
