Over the last 50 years, there have been momentous strides taken in the world of film. Directors have served to pioneer and popularize new styles, and furthermore, the cumulative effect of such vast influence has served to rapidly evolve the film industry. In this project, I took the decision to select five films, all of which have been produced in the last 50 years, and analyze their use of technique and storytelling. After the separate analysis of each film, this documentary serves to illustrate how the works of directors of the past indirectly inspire clever minds of the 21’s century in their creative process. The five films selected were “The Godfather 2” by Francis Ford Coppola, “Bladerunner” by Ridley Scott, “Pulp Fiction” by Quentin Tarantino, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” by John Hughes, and “Kids Turned Out Fine” by modern artist Dexter Navy. Each of these films holds their own place, some serving as examples of masterful character illustration and storytelling, and others showing how directors completely disregard the predetermined format of their industry, opting for more non-traditional methods of storytelling. At the end of the documentary, it is hoped that the viewer will observe many aspects of the latter four films, applied (both obviously and unintentionally) throughout the last film of this series. In this way, the chronological order of this documentary serves to illustrate the cumulative effect of these revolutionary creative decisions on the cultural landscape of film.
