The use of the color in the settings, make the film very unique in a very good way. For example all of the houses are colorful. The buildings and houses are very well placed throughout the film. The bright colors and well placed houses make the scenes and the overall movie unique. The bright colors make the movie memorable, because bright colors stand out more than other duller colors. Another example of the films features that make the movie memorable are the characters. The characters in this film wear very flashy clothing, which shows the audience that the characters have
Overall I found the movie to be quite interesting and exciting at times but a bit slow in others. The story itself was very clear to me and didn’t cause any confusion. It had a good flow also, just as you were on the verge of falling into boredom with a scene they switched it up on you to keep you
The opening scene of the film utilises multiple aspects in order to display the hopeless that looms over the dystopian world that the audience is presented with. The film uses a mix of both visual imagery to show this along with verbal features in order to convey this to the audience.

In “How Technology Has Changed Romance” written by Breeanna Haire, she talks about how technology is redefining what romance looks like for younger couples. Haire goes on to talk about different dating apps, such as, Plenty of Fish and OKCupid. She says, “Since the early days of the internet, we’ve used tech as a tool to broaden our prospects for meeting others and finding romance’.
During Gus Khazeni’s presentation of his new dating app, “LuvLuv’, to the circlers he makes the argument that dating is inherently more successful when a person knows everything about his partner, their likes, dislikes, allergies, etc, so that the user won’t make an “ass” of himself and will be able to “find love and produce grandchildren” (Eggers 121). The idea of the app is to equip a user with so much information about his partner so that he will make all the right decisions, thus the the date will be perfect and his partner will see him as “sensitive, intuitive, decisive,” and perfect (Eggers 120). Francis and Mae become the guinea pigs for the app during the presentation, and prove the app to work properly as it quickly and efficiently
In her essay, “Digital Dating: Desperation or Necessity?,” Christine Hassler defends online dating from the negative stigma associated with the trend. Despite negative opinion of those who meet their significant other online, Hassler discourages her readers from allowing potential shame result in missed opportunities. Due to the internet’s increased importance in forming connections, digital dating should be utilized as a tool for finding relationships and becoming acquainted with like-minded strangers. Critics can no longer interpret online dating as a last resort for desperate elderlies because of the ingenuity of recent websites (Hassler). Overall, Hassler’s definition of online dating as a tool accurately portrays its practicality; however, her essay does not fully describe the escalated use of the internet among singles or successfully depict its disadvantages, such as the bias she addresses.

One aspect of the film that I really enjoyed was the costumes. The costumes played a big part in the social statuses of the characters. For example, when the audience is shown at the movie premieres, they are all wearing lavish and stylish gowns that sparkle and
The clumsy haphazard shots add to the mysterious and asphyxiating atmosphere that Krokia has undoubtedly tried to create. The cinematic elements expertly influence the audience, simulating their desire for drug fuelled parties and hauling them along on the boy’s emotional ride. This is accomplished using long pans to juxtapose the short and irregular drug induced party montages. Krokia takes his audience on a journey of terrifying highs and the dreariest of lows. The slight colour cast that has been added to the film, pays homage to the time in which the original story took place, while also appealing to film lovers and hipsters alike. Director Krokia, made sure to display his technical prowess throughout the film. This was demonstrated during the sluggish party scenes. The lights are dim and the smothering atmosphere is worsened by the heavy haze of cigarette smoke hanging in the air. The soft beat of 40’s jazz music carries the scene as the world halts for Carr and Ginsberg to control. Seemingly never-ending pans, and echoing vocals add to the mood of solitude, isolation and
You walk out of your car and look to the diner, the brightness hurts your eyes. As you walk toward the restaurant door your heart begins to pound like a drum. The waiter glances at you and asks for your name. You say “Marin Luiz Benitez” and he looks in the reservations book, he nods and tells you, “Ahhh yes here we go your date is already inside.”
It seems as though the director didn’t rush the short film, which allowed for more of a narrative to build. If this were simply a monotonic conversation between the two, I feel as though it would’ve lacked emotion, and I would have been completely disengaged.
At the beginning of the movie we are shown an opening sequence introducing the main characters in the movie. We are briefly introduced to each character’s situation and the goals they are trying to achieve but we soon
Sales in her writing explores many premises presented in the essential nature of the outside culture of today’s online dating manners. Sales write’s of the in’s and outs of why online dating has created a sort of “Dating apocalypse” in the culture of today. Assuredly she explicitly states,“Dating app swiping has been jocularly incorporated into advertisements of various products to the nod to notion that, online, the act of choosing consumer brands and sex partners has become interchangeable”(2). Prior to the internet dating culture, much of the relationship that took place were very serious and not seen as a joke, not many “hookups” were taking place. In many ways that idea has
At some point in our lives where we are searching for that special someone. The methods of going about dating have changed quite dramatically over the years. Going out has grown from traditional dating, to internet 'dating', to group dating.
