THE ALL CONSUMING POWER OF GREED
Choose a director, list four movies with a common theme, create an overlying theme that serves as an umbrella to your movie choices and create a fictional film festival. Think not only about posters, but significance of location, multiple uses of ticketing, schedules, brochures and a catalogue. Also, keep in mind that this is a film festival on the go hence every deliverable must fit into one container which in turn links back to the theme.
I chose Martin Scorsese. Why? Mean Streets. Taxi Driver. Raging Bull. The King of Comedy. The Color of Money. Goodfellas. Casino. Gangs of New York. The Aviator. The Departed. And best of all, his films transcend geographical boundaries. International audiences get to glimpse into Scorsese’s interpretation of America, and beyond that, they are usually engaging and compelling stories with engaging and compelling characters.
The stories he tells are often tragedies, showcasing the underworld of society or the underbelly of high society, be they mobsters, Hollywood icons, brutes, or the rich and powerful. And there’s nothing more engaging than seeing a character rise and fall. We become enticed by their success, living vicariously through them, and then are able to jump back into our moral judgment as we watch them fail.
