Jaws Regisserad av Steven Spielberg
The visual ellipsis created far greater menace and terror, as the shark is nowhere and everywhere. The cutting (Verna Fields was the terrific editor) and Spielberg’s use of reverse zoom create a jittery atmosphere, underscored (in both senses) by John Williams’s thrumming bass, eerily vibrating through the waters, its four-note motif the pulsating heart of the film.

The camera moves in while the lens simultaneously zooms out, which creates an unsettling effect of vertigo. Brody, perched in his beach chair, appears to stay in the same spot in the frame, while it appears that the environment around him is shifting. In Jaws, this is a purely psychologically based effect, meant to represent the altered state of the character on screen.

The shark in Jaws is the shark of our collective worst nightmares, almost otherworldly in its enormity and texture. It’s also a great big phallic joke, the agent of the blowhard Quint’s destruction. The shark can mean anything you want it to mean, or nothing, and that uncertainty epitomizes this movie’s lasting appeal. Jaws is the pop masterpiece as happy accident; a parody of America’s can-do spirit that’s also, by the end, a celebration of it.

  • chanandre's rating of the film Jaws

    [Kino: DCP] (CinePop IV) Markl na fila da frente. Waited 13 years to see this film on a proper movie theater: it was Oh so worth the wait. Cinéphilia: that's the discipline. (review in progress...)

  • Kenji's rating of the film Jaws

    I enjoyed this at the cinema aged 14 and then went swimming in the scary Welsh sea. Sharks are not monsters and deserve respect, not demonisation and persecution

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Jaws

    The timeless theme of 'man versus nature' taps into something incredibly primal. Like Moby Dick, the film's generic adventure story becomes a framework for more elemental interpretations specific to the notions of fear, obsession, masculinity, etc. Spielberg's direction owes much to the influence of Hitchcock, but it's the 'Fordian' elements of the script& the well-developed characters that create lasting substance.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film Jaws

    Seen in ideal circumstances: Saturday night of 4th of July weekend, with a packed crowd that laughed at each joke, screamed at the floating head, and applauded Shaw's entrance. It still plays like a pivotal link between Old Hollywood and the modern blockbuster, proving how far an imaginative eye can elevate B material. But for the first time, I noticed how cleverly—and classically—it sketches its community.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Jaws

    Essential cinema. Still Speilberg's best film that hasn't lost any of its power over the last 35 years (!). Though it is the film that started summer blockbusters and therefore villified by some one cannot really fault the storytelling or performances here Robert Shaw is just aces here with top notch performances by Scheider and Dreyfuss. Shaw's telling of the Indianapolis sinking still sends shivers up the spine.

  • Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Jaws

    I just re-watched this film for the first time in a couple years. I used to think that it was this great masterpiece, but now all I see is mediocrity. There was no character development, most of the music feels forced and out of place aside from the notorious theme, and the scares were merely jump scares that came exactly when expected. The experience was boring! I think in general, I have outgrown Spielberg...

  • Graveyard Poet's rating of the film Jaws

    The shark and the story are silly, but the performances of Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, and Richard Dreyfuss are worth watching.

  • Kamran's rating of the film Jaws

    [REVIEW] 87/100 - JAWS (Spielberg, 1975) (4.5) With the aid of Panavision and Technicolor, Spielberg creates a monumental 70s film bringing together the epic scale of David Lean and the captivating action of Alfred Hitchcock. Jaws grabs you and sinks deep. Though psychological and violent, Jaws is somehow wholesome too, and today it is a household name. Read More: http://bit.ly/1qWs9Jn
