However, the lack of an explanation can make the story more personal because it is left up to the audience to make their own assumptions as to why he is being hung. Without the knowledge that Farquhar’s execution is the result of his attempts to commit crimes against the Union army, the story becomes more universal because the audience is free to make their own personal assumptions. The rest of the movie is extremely accurate to the story in most other aspects because the movie does a great job at conveying the sharpened senses that Farquhar experiences in his imagination. At one point in the story it is said that “He had been caught in a vortex and was being whirled on with a velocity of advance and gyration that made him giddy and sick”, and this passage is referenced in the movie when is shows the circular whirling that he experiences in the water. The movie also shows his heightened senses when it focuses on certain details of nature like the spider and the water snake.
Jonas is eager and excited to be able to experience new things. But The Giver must also give Jonas memories of loneliness, fear, grief, rage, and pain-all of which he has never felt in the community. Gradually, through the memories he receives from The Giver, Jonas comes to realize the various truths about the community. He realizes that it is unfair to deprive people of ever being able to make choices for themselves about their own lives. He understands that the people of
Life with talking would be probably too stressful for him. In the movie, Bromden is also depicted as a silent, which comes over very well, sometimes disinterested and foolish person. His disinterest is obviously visible, since he is pretending he is deaf and dumb. However, there are parts in the movie which represent Chief Bromden’s behavior out of the book to the fullest. Bromden is smart and knows what he is doing.
Holden’s views on the innocence of kids and innocence in general, is greatly altered by the profanity he finds on the walls. There are two contrasting details to the profanity; who wrote it and its erasability. At first, Holden is able to erase the curse word and believes a “perverty bum” wrote it, but by the end he understands that it was indeed a child and that even “if you had a million years to do it in, you couldn't rub out even half the "Fuck
The movie made it easier for people to feel for Chris because he was friendly and gentle. It allowed people to admire him for pursuing, his dreams. However, the book made it seem like he was foolish and selfish, and was caught up in this illogical mindset. “Roman, Andrew, and I stay up well past midnight, trying to make sense of McCandless’s life and death, yet his essence remains slippery, vague, elusive.”(p. 186) This left people to think that he deserved to die for his arrogance. While portrayed as a harsh character in the book, Chris’ father Walt is seen as an even harder character in the movie, they pushed Walt’s character even more, adding more tension between Chris and himself.
As our minds are unlike cameras it is difficult to recall events with 100% accuracy. Many things can influence our recollection of events. Our pre existing bias and stereotypes can colour our memories, as can information obtained following the event. Therefore our memory of events are reconstructed from various sources, thus what we think may not always be to a high degree of accuracy. When considering the role of memory in the law, the issue of the fallibility of human memory is especially important.
If you were take the narrators word for it he will lead you to believe in things that are entirely false. Humans have no way of knowing when they are being lied to, especially if you know nothing about the subject. By having narration you dont have to think too much about the information your being told because when you watch a movie you suspend belief anyway so you are more open to what the narrator is telling you. Most documentaries use statistics to prove what they are saying is true. A statistic is the collection and interpretation of masses of numerical data.
It is a little obvious to older responders that this movie would end with the hero going out with a trill of fanfare. He generally depends far too much upon the other actors for the metaphorical branch to stabilise the floundering responder. This becomes increasingly more evident if you look out for it. Unfortunately, a majority of people who watch an (‘adapted, accurate and historical film’) actually bend their subconscious mind to look for similar points of references between the two films. However this film has just the right balance of facts and entertainment to suit both the critics and also the responders.
Before watching this movie, I never knew that playing pool involved math. And by inductive reasoning, I would assume that professional pool players were good at mental math. My favorite part of the movie was when the narrator explained the shapes and the how different objects in our life were created based off of symmetry and geometry. I liked how he explained that simple shapes such as squares, stars, circles, and triangles were the basis of many of the things we see every day such as flowers. My least favorite part of the movie was hearing Donald Duck talk, just for the simple fact that I couldn’t understand him.
Everything discussed in the novel has a specific purpose and furthers the story, although the film adaptation seems to have misinterpreted many scenes. Also, there are some blatant inaccuracies. The most noticeable one is the deletion of Mr. Farraday from the novel, and replacing him with Mr. Lewis in the film. The first person point of view is central to the understanding of Stevens and the complexity of his character, which the film somewhat ruins by making him seem quite simplistic. However, the adaptation did not only deteriorate the character of Stevens, as it also portrays scenes very similar to that of the novel.
