Paula Castellanos # 4 Ms.Farmer 3rd Period In the movie Edward Scissorhands, Tim Burton uses eye line match and non-diegetic sounds to emphasize and develop Edwards’s emotions and feelings through the film. When Edward is hugging Kim he wants to touch her face and her body but he can’t. The director uses eye line match during the flashback between Edward’s face and his hands to show how much he wanted to become a normal person like everyone else. It makes the audience feel sorry for him, but it also reflects the sadness that has been always with Edward’s character. As another example when Edward was trapped in Jim’s house he was trying really hard to open the door but it was impossible because of his “condition” , Burton also uses eye line match during this scene between his hands, the lock’s door and his face to highlight how different life is for Edward even in the smallest details.
Erickson's Stages of Psychosocial Development In the movie Ordinary People, the character Conrad shows signs of having missed a stage in Erickson’s stages of psychosocial development. The relationship that Conrad and his mother have is very unusually and could explain a lot of why Conrad puts so much of the guilt of his brother’s death on himself. It’s possible that when Conrad was a little boy his mother spent more time with his older brother and didn’t really pay much attention to him or certain tasks that he accomplished. This stage would be Initiative vs. Guilt.
Sweeney's observation that Gregor fails to maintain critical social relationships which advanced his transformed state helps to clarify how Gregor's predicament was exacerbated by the loss of status within his own family. Sweeney maintains that Gregor's “decreasing contacts with his family have eroded his sense of being a person. (149)” This observation along with the concept that Gregor rationalizes as a cognitive human yet reacts instinctively as a bug provides clarity and allows readers to better understand how the narrator constructs the story. Throughout Kafka's novel it is difficult as a reader to understand exactly how Gregor has transformed because he seems to still be able to rationalize and reason like a human. Sweeney points out that in the first section of the novel the narrator says, “if Gregor had only been able to speak to his sister and thank her for everything she had to do for him, he could have accepted her services more easily; as it was they caused him pain.
If their mother was still alive they would not have to hide from their father. Brian on the other hand attributed his experiences to the fact that life was harsh on him and he could not forgive the people in his life that hurt him. This was in the beginning of the movie. An example of this is when he refuses to visit his mother during the weekends and speakes rudely to his mother on the phone. Later on in the movie , after mixing with Rohana and Rohani he forgives his mother and goes to visit her.
American independent film is somewhat of a mystery to many American’s these days. A majority of the movies American’s view today, are the ones that tend to do the best in the box office and when they are released on DVD, are those made by major Hollywood directors and writers with the big name actors. Many of them have a similar story line: boy falls in love with girl, boy loses girl, boy fights to get girl back, and they live happily ever after. They are there mainly to entertain people with their graphics or special effects. With those films, there is not much a message, it is something we see time after time, and people do not leave the theatre saying “Wow!
He tries on multiple occasions to fit in with her family, something he never tried to do with his own parents. Gogal becomes very attached to Maxine’s parents, who were a key element in his changed behaviour and the result of the avoidance of his own parents and their traditional ways. “Gogol had several affairs in his life time that sometimes his parents did not support…” (100).

He chooses to do things by himself and tends to hide his personal affairs from his parents.

When someone has committed to spend their life with another person, they have two people to care for, themselves and their partner. Even though I believe marriage is a beautiful experience, it can make one forget about themselves and their life aside from their wife or husband. I know firsthand, that this can have drastic consequences. A few years ago my dad was diagnosed with diabetes and instead of treating it as recommended; he ignored the issue until it significantly affected his family’s life and himself. Because my dad was too busy raising and caring for his own family, he did not give himself enough attention and as an effect to his diabetes, he became extremely violent, which almost caused my parents to divorce.
In the beginning of the story Max doesn’t appreciate the benefits he has. He doesn’t appreciate his family, mostly his mother, either. That leads us to the main theme of the short story “you should appreciate what you have”. In the beginning of the story did Max argue with both his mother and the drivel in school, but in the end he did actually receive more knowledge. Max thought about Ishraqi not even knowing if her parents existed, and then he resolved not to argue with his mom for once.
