Cinema can have a profound effect on its viewer,from the technique, and the way films are shot to the imagery, soundtracks and mood conveyed-- these all have a plethora of effects to captivate the audience. Art often draws upon references to pay tribute to an influence while capturing its own essence and flavor by adding its own twist to the inspiration. What better way to capture the history of modern as well as classic cinema than with the juxtaposition by one of the most iconic cartoons of all times-- The Simpsons? From Tom Cruise's effervescent, jubilant montage in Risky Business to the suspenseful, minimalist scenes from Psycho, these references best illustrate the gamut of cinema in an all encompassing plight.
What were your favorite references?
Simplicity reigns in a visceral, yet poignant films showcasing a varied sequence of repetitive tasks that serve to emphasize the routine of addiction, dependence and withdrawal in a drug abuser in Requiem for a Dream.
Personality at its best.
Villains can have duality as well, making them complex and varied versus being one dimensional. Great juxtaposition with Hannibal and Burns.
