How to Analyze a Movie

A movie is a motion picture that combines acting, sound, animation and cinematography to tell a story. A good film is able to make the viewer feel and think about the subject matter it covers. A skillfully made film that does both feels and thinks is a masterpiece.

Start by analyzing the plot. Did the film have a clear and compelling plot with a climax that paid off? Did you like the way the characters were developed and how they acted together? You can also discuss the film’s theme. For example, did the film have a message or did it reflect a certain political stance?

Evaluate the directing style of the filmmaker. For example, did the director use a lot of suspense and action to keep the audience on the edge of their seat? Did he include many different characters? You should also look at the editing of a movie. This includes how the scenes were cut together and whether it added to or took away from the overall feel of the film.

The actor’s performances are another important part of a movie. For example, did the actors act well or did they fail to portray the characters as they were written? You should also analyze the character’s dialogue and if it was believable. You can also look at the costume design and set design of a movie.
