I need help with a Film question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.
Before you start writing the response, please:
Watch selections from one of the following films:
i. The Cabinet of Dr.Caligari (Wiene, 1920, Germany)
ii. The Last Laugh (Murnau, 1924, Germany)
Watch (in its entirety): The Maltese Falcon (Huston, 1941, USA)
Response (~600 words):
Take a couple of scenes from The Last Laugh or The Cabinet of Dr.Caligari and compare the lighting and shadow to scenes from The Maltese Falcon and discuss how the former influenced the latter. Include screen grabs(command + shift + 4 on a mac).
