Essay Film

Okay so some people might think it's typical that I would choose the Nightmare before Christmas as the film I want to explore in my essay but I have my reasons. Just like Edward Scissor hands there are two different sets with very different atmospheres. Most of the film is set in Halloween town which is very dark, the buildings aren't straight just like in The Cabinet of Caligari, it has a more expressive feel. In comparisson when Jack gets lost and ends up in Christmas town the atmosphere changes dramatically. Christmas town is full of bright light and colour and has an all round happy feel to it. The beauty of the film is that the sets are built from scratch, they're not CG.
