The Graduate

Montage scenes explore and convey different ideology’s they can be used to show the passing of time or a section of someone’s life. Within the graduate a montage shows his internal monologue and how he feels about his situation.

Montages can also be symbolic such as what happens within the graduates montage/cross-cutting scene. The main character starts of on a water float with cross dissolves fading between each scene of him in different positions he then gets up out of the pool and walks away putting on a wet shirt, when he walks through the door he ends up in a hotel room with a faceless older women who we know as Mrs Robinson however there is confusion as we also see his mother in earlier and later shots
