Donnie Darko shows how the monstrous can be represented or misrepresented depending on the interpretation by the viewer. This is a film filled with elements of science fiction, horror and drama but does not come under one genre. Its appeal is in its eccentric way of telling a story, and its ambiguities of both the characters and the exploration of determinism and free will, sanity and insanity, loneliness and love. However it also rejects most common conventions having the main monstrous figure -Frank the bunny- also the one responsible to get Donnie (the protagonist) ready before the world ends, thus saving the original world by causing the destruction of the tangent world. It uses the story to convey its meaning primarily through dialogue and meticulous editing and leaves the majority of the interpretation of the film up to the viewer’s imagination.
There was no rating for the movie at time of release; In recent years Psycho hit the Big screen again, but with a new director Gus Van Sant decided to remakes, version of the infamous Bates motel. Therefore in this essay we will be addressing and comparing the scene, the casting, and theme in both film (Hitchcock ’60) vs. (Van Sant ’98) to show the difference and the similarities in both movies.

(direct quote they use throughout the entire movie from multiple characters). As the “world” ends, we begin to realize, all of what history has written is true, and humans are entirely at fault. Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat our father’s mistakes. I have taken quite an interest in this movie and its sociological and cultural aspects. Southland Tales tell the tale of how the world will end, maybe not as drastic as shown in the feature, but the tragic events of the human race, and our doings onto this
Could our government have masterminded this horrific crime? Actually, I believe they did, I personally believe that the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and the crashing of Flight 93 does not accurately add up to it’s ashes. On September 11, 2001 the media/government reported that terrorists hi-jacked two U.S. commercial airplanes that struck the World Trade Center. Although how could the terrorist successively pass through security and board a plane with weapons, especially after the D.B. Cooper incident?

Forcing them to work and slave away with a cut off life span of only 4 years.
As a consequence of time, the world continues to change technologically, socially, and scientifically. As do the common values and perspectives of man. Illustrations of this notion are exhibited through Mary Shelley’s novel, “Frankenstein” (1818) and Ridley Scott’s sci-fi film “Blade Runner” (1982) Both texts succeed in address contemporary issues at the time of their release such as what is humanity?, the consequences of assuming the role of God and the effects of scientific and technological advancement on society and nature . Both Shelley and Scott compose their works in a bid to warn people of the advancements at the time. This is done through provoking individuals to question and criticise the ethics and principles upheld in
DATE \@ "MMMM d, y" April 20, 2015 Dear Editor, Im writing to express my belief in why the short story “Bloodchild” by Octavia Butler should be published. Butler creates a dystopian society in which humans form together to build a little agency. “Dystopian is the complete opposite of utopian because it describes an imaginary society that is as dehumanizing and unpleasant (vocabulary.com)”. The humans ( who are referred to as Terran) are detached from earth and placed in this far away world that they have to share with Tlic ( referred to as the aliens) . The science fiction elements play a big role throughout the story because the fact that it is located in a far away world it gives this mystery that keeps you on your toes .
