Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind This is the first time I watch Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and I must say it is now one of my favorite movies. It is very original, eccentric, and one of the best alternative movies I have seen so far. The mise-en-scene of the movie was very well thought of and very impressive. Charlie Kaufman did a wonderful job with the script as a sci-fi story which examines humans’ relationships and the role memory has in shaping us and its role in love and heart break. The performance of Jim Carrey was outstanding as the introverted withdrawn Joel; One of his best performances so far.
CJ 497-01W Louis Webster Antisocial Personality Disorder in Serial Killer: Female and Male Accomplices The Serial Killer Serial killing has been around since the beginning of time, but not in the same form that it is in today. While in ancient times, many killed for power, revenge, or to satisfy a blood lust, today, most serial killers use their murders as a means to achieve sexual satisfaction or to gain control over another person. Serial killers have a ultimate and common personality profile. When serial killers are profiled their reasons are behind their aggression, and it’s uncontrollable and sometimes apparent. Many types of perspectives have been suspected by researchers and criminologist about serial killers, and how each serial killer has different agendas and reason for killing.
She writes, “She laid her hands on me,/then washed out my mouth/with Ivory soap. This/was to purify, she said,/and cleanse your lying tongue.” These few lines make me think that she’s trying to describe white as the right thing. She does this again in the second stanza when she says, “I could act like my homemade dresses come straight out of the window at Maison Blanche.” This phrase makes us think that dresses from the “White House” are better than others. I think the overall message of this little girl is that she used to think that white was better. Clothes were
Three times the lethal dose, in fact. So the question we’re all wondering, is who the heck would want Cobain dead? If you type “Is Courtney Love.,” into Google, the very first suggestion to pop up is “Is Courtney Love a murderer?” Cobain’s widow is notorious for her aggressive, unstable personality and her heavy drug use. She is prone to major meltdowns and incidents where that involve her lashing out and hurting someone without warning. When observing Courtney Love’s destructive personality, it’s not difficult believe she would be capable of committing such a horrific crime.
This came to be known as the Chanel suit. The suit was usually accessorized with a long string of pearls and was called the “woman’s new uniform.” Hollywood icon Marlene Dietrich helped popularize the look with her slouchy stylish way of wearing the suit. 1931 The first wide-shouldered suits According to Vogue, the house of Rochas introduced the 20th century’s first wide-shouldered suits for women. Marcel Rochas says that his new silhouette is based on the costumes worn by Balinese dancers. 1942 Kate the Great shows us that suits are for girls too Katherine Hepburn showed us that a man’s suit could actually be quite feminine.
In his novel Hunting Humans, Elliott Leyton examines multiple murders in an attempt to explain their motives and origins, and to determine why America, in particular, has the highest rate of multiple murderers in the modern world. In general, these killers follow a common theme. They often come from the working or lower middle classes, and come to feel excluded from a class or social group that they fervently wish to join. As revenge, they act against innocent strangers, targeting members of the class or group that they feel excluded from. Though this theme persists through all multiple murderers, the term blankets both serial killers and mass murderers.
In his book “The black book of serial killers” (2), he describes and defines the two crime characteristics. He states that depending on their IQ they are either “organized” or “disorganized”. While speaking about the “Vampire of Dusseldorf” (Peter Kürten) the profiler says, “Peter Kürten is a hardened criminal whose career spans over thirty years. When he was denounced in 1930, it is because he knew he was about to get caught. Like any psychopath organized, it's him who wants to have the last word and manipulate those around him.” Indeed the principal characteristic of an organized serial killer is to control him self during the crime, to live with a partner (he asked his wife to denounce him so then she could get the reward) and to be able to the dominate the conversation.
One of the greatest overriding themes in both movies is the concept of love. In both movies the protagonist’s love interest is murdered. In Gladiator, Maximus’s wife and children are murdered under the clear direction of the antagonist, Commodus. In Braveheart, William Wallace’s wife is murdered by those in league with the antagonist, but she is not killed specifically by the antagonist in order to punish the protagonist, as in Gladiator. Love drives the main characters in both movies to accomplish their goal, which is to exact their revenge on those who have wronged them.
The date and time appear on the screen leading you to think that they are important almost as if it is a police re-construction as they are trying to solve a crime. The camera Goes from an extreme long shot to a window and peeps through to a close up free flowing through the room showing and Janet Leigh and her co-star in what would have been considered a shocking scene, her in a bra and petticoat having an affair with a married man. The target audience of this film would be horror and suspense. Hitchcock was himself a household name at this time and also had many strategies to get audiences into the theatre for instance
In McCarthy’s, No Country for Old Men, money plays a significant role when it comes to ethical decision making. In the beginning, Llewelyn Moss comes across a crime scene where drug traffickers and drug dealers are brutally murdered by a third party, in pursuit for the money.
