The song opens with the line “I am the voice inside your head / And I control you” (“Mr. Self-Destruct”) and continues to describe the antagonist as the dark force that causes the character to use drugs and sex as a means of escape; establishing the character as severely mentally unstable. The second song “Piggy” the person in a relationship with the protagonist leaves him for someone else, at a point when he needed them most. He lashes out at the person calling them a “pig”. The break up callouses the character as he says “Nothing can stop me now / Because I don’t care anymore” (“Piggy”); this is the first sign of apathy in the character.
On this essay, few selected scenes that show or portrays them as part of this cinema will be discussed by focusing on Editing, Endings, Location shooting and Sound/Music used to show that both these films were part of this movement. 1. ENDING If we look at both films endings, is totally what we are not used to everytime we are watching a movie/film. Let’s take Bonnie & Clyde for instance; the surprising element before the end of the movie on their journey, as audience we expect a happy ending of them going away from all what has happened and what they did. But unexpectedly its ending is totally brutally violent and what we didn’t expect for a love and crime movie like Bonnie & Clyde.
As shown the word” Awake, Awake” Is used, which ironically foreshadows that Macbeth will sleep no more, just like the voice had told him just after he had killed King Duncan. Macduff is devastated and alarmed, with the words “ring the alarm bell”. It foreshadows Macbeth’s decline into madness when he kept on hearing a bell just after he had killed King

Ben’s outlook on life changes with the accident. After the accident, he decides to drastically change the life circumstances of seven strangers, the last of which requires his own life. One of the questions the movie raises is why does it take something so drastic and devastating to alter Ben’s perspective on life. When he figures out his personal mission, he ignores the laws of man, fully personifying the top of Kohlberg’s stages, and carries out his mission until it untimely leads to his own demise. This film is geared toward the realm of individual ethics and individual choices.
Fight Club is about an insomniac‘s ‘chance’ meeting with a soap salesman who changes his perspective and philosophy on life. Together they form a new, shocking form of therapy which they call Fight Club “hence the title” to channel their primal male aggression. The concept quickly catches on, with underground fight clubs opening in every town. All this happens until one of them spins out of control in a downward spiral towards what looks to be oblivion. During this essay I’m not going to give away the ending or any of the main twists in the story because I couldn’t bare to be the one to ruin the experience of watching this movie in complete shock and surprise for the first time as the events unfold (and I seriously recommend watching this if you haven’t yet) but I’ll be discussing the many themes, elements and techniques that this movie withholds.
Theo, the lead actor, watches the news of this occurrence on the TV in a café. As soon as he leaves, a bomb obliterates the café. Being the last functioning nation in the world, Britain has closed its borders and is engaged in a war against those who support immigrant rights. This exemplifies the realism and practicality of the plot of the film. The humankind has faced an atrocious crisis posed by Mother Nature; the reality of this is only further dividing the nation.
McMurphy revitalizes the hope of the patients, fights Nurse Ratched's stranglehold on the ward, and, in a way, represents the feelings of the author on society at the time. Before R.P. McMurphy arrives, the ward is your basic average mental institution. Men line up to receive their medication, they do puzzles and play cards, and the evil head nurse and her muscle, a group of big black fellows, carry patients off to be shaved or for electroshock therapy. The people can't do anything about it, though.
If one country is threatening another country, then they go to war and attempt to kill each other off. The movie, “A History Of Violence” portrays the idea of humans being inherently violent through the actions of Joey/Tom and his acquaintances. In one of the opening scenes, there are two murderers that enter Tom’s Diner at closing time. The men attempt to take everyone in the restaurant hostage and seconds before the raping of the waitress, Tom smashes a coffee pot on the face of one of the murderers and shoots and kills both of them. As the murderers were preparing to kill everyone, Tom attempted to talk to them and alleviate the situation to avoid anybody getting hurt.
In the novel, as well as the film, Fight Club was no longer enough for the narrator, or Jack in the movie; thus the creation of Project Mayhem. The narrator explains that “the goal [of Project Mayhem] was to teach each man in the project that he had the power to control history,” (Palahniuk 122). Project Mayhem encouraged the men involved, or the “space monkeys,” to cause destruction to their communities to set themselves free of society; that only they themselves can determine who they are and what makes them happy. In Bulent Diken and Carsten Bagge Laustsen’s article entitled, “Enjoy You Fight! – “Fight Club” as a Symptom of the Network Society,” they state that Fight Club and Project Mayhem “functions as a line of flight from the stratified society,” (350).
