Ideology l.jpg

The study of ideas, specifically the analytical study of the ideas that are held by a certain culture, class, group, or even an individual. In order to determine value system adhered to.

Three broad categories of ideology in film:

Neutral

Issues of right and wrong are treated superficially, and the emphasis is on action

Implicit

Characters may represent conflicting value systems, but these are not dwelled upon or mentioned directly. The point of view, or the theme, may be slanted in a particular direction, but it is without obvious manipulation.

Explicit

Thematically oriented films that aim to teach or persuade, they may be extremely manipulative
