Cutting Edges: The Wicker Man (1973)

Figure 1 - Film Poster
The Wicker Man (1973) was directed by Robin Hardy and the film genres  are drama, mystery, classic and horror. The story follows the police Sergeant Howie (Edward Woodward) arrives on the small Scottish island of Summerisle who tries to investigate the disappearance of a young girl Rowan Morrison (Gerry Cowper).

However the main character reach the town and ask the residents about her but no one responses including the girl's mother (Irene Summer)  about the missing girl. Which he tries to find some clues for example her name was found in the school recorded.

This film is super creepy and messed up because of naked women dancing around the fire and public nudity sex. " The Willow song from The Wicker Man is a soundtrack in 1973. Britt Ekland  as Willow who sings it nude in her room, and trying to seduce the main character in the next room".(Opalstardream 2014)

The May Pole Song in (figure 2) from The Wicker Man is a upbeat song showing expresses, symbiosis and the interdependence of life. "Composed, arranged and recorded by Paul Giovanni and Magnet, The Wicker Man soundtrack contains folk songs performed by characters in the film (including some by members of the cast). For example, Lesley Mackie, who plays the character of Daisy in the film, sings the opening song, and various others in the CD Soundtrack." (Froster 2008). An enchanting soundtrack is blending marvellously into 'The Wicker Man' which shows the viewer into false sense of security.

Near the end of scene in (figure 3) it shows that he found the young girl  Rowan Morrison and trying to escape from the other members but the hero was tricked from the character Lord Summerisle played by Christopher Lee and he ended up burned to death in The Wicker Man. "(Christopher Lee). The officer's unease intensifies as he continues his investigation, slowly coming to fear that the girl's disappearance may be linked in a particularly horrifying manner to an upcoming public festival. Anthony Shaffer's meticulously crafted screenplay creates a thoroughly convincing alternative society, building tension through slow discovery and indirect suggestion and making the terrifying climax all the more effective."

Cutting Edges: Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Figure 1- Film poster
Rosemary's Baby (1968) was directed by Roman Polanski and the movie is based on Ira Levin's novel about modern-day witches and demons. The film genre is horror. The film starts with Rosemary  (Mia Farrow) and her husband Guy (John Cassavetes) moving into a new apartment building in New York City.

"The use of lighting in the film and the director Polanski's  use of the warm lighting with dark undertone is seen to contribute to the uneasy theme throughout the film. Although there is  warm yellow lighting, the audience is still made to feel cautious due to the deeper tones, adding a sinister element." ( Reid 2015). (Figure 2For example the scene in which Rosemary wake up in a bed only to find she is covered in mysterious scratches.

In the film the camera shows a close-up is used when the necklace is first seen in the film and later when it is given to Rosemary.(Figure 3) "This draws the viewer attention to the object and implies that it will play a significant role in the film." ( Reid 2015)

Figure 4 - Still image

It has been noted that the character of Rosemary is dressed throughout the film in blue and white. (As the end scene figure 4). This has been done to connect Rosemary with the virgin Mary to contrast her  with the demon baby. Basically it is good versus evil.
This film received critical acclaim and rotten tomatoes give it a score of 99%
