The costumes reflect on the personalities of the individuals. For example, Edward is driven and persistent, sometimes even stubborn; whereas the people of Spectre are of a pastel-coloured nature, meaning that they are naïve and secluded, closing themselves from the tainted reality. Edward is adamant on leaving Spectre because unlike those people, he wants to explore and find a place where he can strive and bloom. As Edward continues to thrive and accomplish after leaving Spectre, the viewer can see that Spectre crumbles from the pressure of the outside world. Burton uses the colours of the costumes to
Therefore, even though Brave New World is a very stable society, it still has some flaws. Citizens in Brave New World are living happily and peacefully without any conflict. In this world, everyone has a job and does not need to worry about being unemployed, as the population is “permanently limited to no more than two billion people”. Brave New World is also a stable society, since “Community, Identity, Stability” is the World State’s motto. There is no competition within castes because each member receives the same food, housing and soma rationing as everyone else of that caste, so there is no jealousy within the society.
The traditional, restricted ideals of Pleasantville imitate the nature of all items having no color. Everyone, everyday follows a typical routine that is accepted by the old American society. Therefore the black and white colours in the early part of the movie were introduced to be a symbol of firmness, dullness, and conformity. Black and white life is straightforward and simple. As the plot progresses, certain traits of Pleasantville begin to gain color and cease to be depicted in black-and-white or grey.
This film is very personal to but not to one person. The story is about Thierry’s experiences before, during, and after filming street artists. It also makes it more personal because throughout the movie we are shown scenes of an interview of Thierry commenting on his life. At the same time this movie is personal to Bansky because this is all happening because of him. Not only would this story not have been told without him but he is the antagonist of the story, setting everything in motion once he comes across Thierry.
Women aren’t all stay at home mums, and not all of men have a job or a family. These are examples of stereotypes families as seen in common suburbia. The street in which the movie is set in is the type of neighborhood you would expect to see in a children’s picture book or a fairytale. The houses are lined up fittingly and everything seems almost plastic, like somewhere where Barbie and Ken would live. The houses are all a pastel colour and as you see when you get further into the movie there is nothing extraordinary about them.
The only flaw is the dark, not-so-happy secret that they all share. In order to maintain this happiness, there must be one who suffers, specifically a child. The child is treated worse than an animal, and is often treated as if it were an act in a freak show. The people of the town know of the child and most have seen it, but the fear that their happiness will be taken from them prevents them from acknowledging that anything is wrong. There are a few individuals, however, who have acknowledged the inhumanity going on, and they are the ones who walk away from Omelas.
The family's rich friend Rajat Kapoor, has been found guilty of raping Aditi’s cousin when her cousin was a child, the wedding planner has a secret love with the maid and so on. All of these complex human relationships make this whole story seem very authentic. It leaves us with deep thoughts about different cultures and different attitude about social class. One thing that intrigued me so much was the different attitudes on sex or emotion between different classes in India. In the movie, we learn that the wedding planner is a poor and unsophisticated person who is from the low class.
In the biopic The Social Network directed by David Fincher there are various ideas portrayed which challenge society’s common values. These are inclusive of the belief of everlasting friendship, what you see is what you get and perception and social class don’t matter. The film contrasts these general issues and shows the audience that they are not always true through a range of visual, aural, mise en scene and editing techniques. The idea of friendship being forever lasting is heavily challenged through techniques such as composition, dietetic and non-diegetic music and the overall fragmented nature of the film. The first instance of this is shown at the beginning of the film where Mark and Erica’s relationship falls to pieces.
The only main exception to that would be the priests and the higher officials. The way that this society can have these opportunities and this equality is by having very little differences between people. Every person has a very similar home and keeps the home in a good condition, as well as gardens that they all take much pride in (More 31). A major reason that equality can happen is because they all have no money. This lets no person be richer than the next and eliminates the poor and beggars.
This tells me the “individual in society” in certain groups the person has a certain role to play and this certain role does not cross. The high standards in ones family create lines and boundaries as the way you act around family. Another example that I did was when I was with my close friends of mine whom I have known from high school, I started by responding in a defensive way and being very opinionated to every suggestion and comment they mentioned to me and sometimes defensive to situations in which there was nothing to be defensive about, like I was being attacked by all of them. This was very difficult to pull off because these close friends of mine have known me for many years and they know that I am never like this. During this time I thought I was not doing a good job of persuading them because this is so far from the real me that they would not take me
