Byron Hadley, the main antagonist would be described as a brutal and heartless man who is quite a sadistic who thinks nothing of delivering beatings to the prisoners. ‘If I hear so much as a mouse fart in here the rest of the night I swear by God and sonny Jesus you will all visit the infirmary’. This character causes the relationship conflict with the prisoners due to authorities and dominion. What on the surface might seem like a depressing story about a man in prison, in Shawshank Redemption Andy’s situation is filled with personal challenges and one's will to overcome impossible odds. Also what is utterly distressing about this film is

In the April 21st entry in the diary found to be John Wilkes Booth’s, he writes, “And why; For doing what Brutus was honored for, what made Tell a Hero. And yet I for striking down a greater tyrant than they ever knew am looked upon as a common cutthroat...” (Goodrich 556). His actions would soon lead to acts of violence spread across the entirety of the country and set the tone for the years to follow. Mob violence became commonplace North and South alike where men were beaten for the slightest show of gratitude towards the death of Lincoln. Even at the hands of a policeman a man was clubbed and sentenced to six months in jail for exclaiming, “Old Abe, that son of a bitch, is dead, and he ought to have been killed long ago” (Goodrich 227).

Preminger early on in his career un-fazed by the mammoth aura of the Hollywood studio machine wouldn’t be cast aside and would vent his fury when he deemed appropriate. An attribute which would see him lock horns with Fox studio executive Darryl F. Zanuck and result in him slamming the door abruptly in his face. A similarity which draws resemblance to the character in question in Anatomy of a Murder in which Ben Gazzara’s insolent Lieutenant Frederick ‘Manny’ Manion is on trial for the killing of a bar tender who raped his wife played by Lee Remick. Initially reluctant, James Stewart’s Paul ‘Polly’ Biegler is charged with the task of defending him and hopefully ‘getting him off Scott-free’. However the ambitious prosecutor Mitch Lodwick who plays everything by the book and with the additional help of the ruthless Claude Dancer (George C. Scott) are determined to cloud the issue of the rape story and stick solely the murder story.
All of the scenes that involve political chaos, such as the protests on the streets of Turkey, feature the color red and blue painted all over the picket signs and baseball caps. By repetitively placing these two contrast colors side by side in the protests, Akin wants to reveal the relentless tension between the two nationalities. The transcendence of political conflict to personal conflict is also shown through the scene where Ali entered the Red Light District in the midst of a political protest in Germany. There, he meets and lives with Yeter, a prostitute. During the time they are together, a small fight occurs that causes the accidental death of Yeter.
Her belief becomes real in the next few minutes when two other black men carjack them. Another example from the movie is Cultural based theories of prejudice. The character Farhad believes that since he is Persian he is being persecuted against and cheated, because he believes that everyone who is middle-eastern is not welcome in America especially after the events of 9/11. When he was in the gun shop, and the owner of the gun shop was rude to him, he becomes angry and makes a scene, based on the listed beliefs and fears that he has. Another example is when Farhad calls for a locksmith to fix his shop door.
