This week we were prompted to choose which movie we wanted to watch (I like it). I choose Black Sabbath, why? because is the name of a rock bad I like. Black Sabbath is composed of three stories that I am going to reflect below by separate. However, what I could see from the three stories is that each one has a focal point.
The blue stone ring is the focal point of the first story. The dead lady that appears like smiling is super creepy, especially when she wake up,and then goes to sit on the rocker chair. I will also die of a heart attack. However, the whole scene are taken in a very sad-looking place without much color; and the ring is the only object in the story that has a really impacting color.
The second story is about a lady that keeps receiving a phone calls from a guy that is looking at her. I still can figure it out, from where or who was this guy. However, the telephone was a red, and all the furniture was oak. The telephone looked like it did not belong there because was a very strong color and the rest of the scene was more pastel like color.
The vampire story is the third story; I am not so sure about it. I think the white color of the child clothing while he has been abducted it was really bright and have a really nice contrast with the grandfather figure and the atmosphere, which both of them were really depressing, and poor in color. Another good scene is in the castle debris because we can see two tones, I mean where they enter to that scene is bright but at the other side is dark and without color. The last scene where the face of the child, father and sister appears in the window ….Amazing; it left a good impact in me.
The host in the introduction was fantastic it looked like a head floating in the air. In the introduction of the third story, the host was saying that vampire doesn’t have reflection in the mirror and when he tries to look himself up in the mirror he did not do it. It is a playful way to add mystery to his identity.
This week focus was design, but design can be anything. Design can be the most simple thing such a letter you receive in the mail, to magazine or even a textbook that you use in class. In the movie, design can be found in the clothing, furniture, scenography (settings), lighting, and etc. In Black Sabbath, I can see the director focus in accessories such as the ring for the first movie, furniture like the telephone and clothing and scenography in the third story.
