Cinematographic films are always the object of study and analysis. To make an essay about them, the first thing is to identify the cinematographic genre to which it belongs, the context in which both the film and the story it relates come into being.
In the same way the theme of the work must be plated, if it arises from a script adapted from a literary work and mention the Director of the film.
The following example shows us how to make an introduction to an essay about a movie.
Example of an introduction to a movie rehearsal
The film It premiered in 2017 is a second adaptation of the novels of the same name by the acclaimed writer of the horror genre Stephen King. The first adaptation was made in a mini series.
This version of the novel taken to the big screen is directed by the Argentine Andrés Muschietti. It is inscribed under the genre of the Thriller for its total handling of terror and the very well achieved suspense scenes throughout the film.
The central theme of the film is the same that is narrated in the book, a group of children from the town of Derrie in Maine (USA) are attacked in different ways by a something, a thing, an It (that) that assumes different characteristics throughout the film, including the macabre clown on the promotional cover.
The thread of the film is fear, the terror that children feel each one to very specific things and that will be used by the agent of evil to terrorize and persecute them.
In itself beyond the great way of presenting the artistic elements, the central theme in itself studies the paralyzing power that can exert fear over people and the strength that arises in the individual when he decides to face his own fears.
How is the introduction of a book made?
Generally the books usually present a short introduction on the central theme that will be raised in it. They seek to awaken the interest of the reader to buy the book, but do not address forceful arguments or advance conclusions because the idea is to catch the reader with the unknown and generated suspense.
The introductory approach to a book contains in essence the topic to be addressed, the time it took for its work, the vicissitudes that were passed to finish it and delves into the reasons that justify its development.
What is an introduction to a book?
The introduction of a book is a brief presentation that accompanies some books and that is located in a section at the beginning of the text. It describes in a very brief but argumentative the content of the book and the reasons that led to its realization.
To have more clarity on this point and to see how an introduction to a book is prepared, let’s see the example below:
Example: Book: “Theory of objectivity“
Objectivity is, for some, relative, for others, a duty and for the scientist the only possible way to carry out his work. The literati, for their part, objectively consider their own subjectivity, not to mention the psychological area, with so many theories for the study of mental health and relationships but always subject to the way of thinking of the specialist who attends a case.
In this book “Theory of Objectivity” we have tried to elucidate a little about the reality of objective thinking in the fields of human knowledge, science, art, religion. We will review the theoretical assumptions that under a Phenomenological vision offer authors such as Bachelard and we will even walk the paths of Heidegger’s hermeneutics in an attempt, as we have already said, to objectively approach objectivity.
The questions that we set out to initiate are the following: Can the human being, a thinking, changing, influencing being, be completely objective? Does not his objectivity depend on his formal studies, his personal training since childhood in terms of family, social, religious and cultural? And being so, is man being subject to his own way of understanding reality and his own way of thinking, is not his objectivity then a form of pure subjectivity?
No doubt many more questions will arise throughout this work but we are sure that it will be the reader’s objectivity that ends up giving us the answer.
