In this essay I will write about the American gangster film GoodFellas (1990), directed by Martin Scorsese. In GoodFellas, Martin Scorsese explores the life of former mobster and FBI informant Henry Hill. GoodFellas is the true-life account story about a half-Irish, half-Sicilian kid growing up in New York, idolizing and working for the local mobsters and eventually becoming one of them and rising up in the ranks as he grows older. In the following essay, I will explain how the editing and cinematography was used to influence the audience’s perception of the film. Throughout the whole film, almost every location the mob occupied or visited was always dully lit to dismiss any beauty of the location.
1. What is the significance of the title? In the begining of the movie there was crime scene which shown a car crash, the word "Crash" is symbolic for the culture shock we experience when in our everyday lives we "crash" into people from many different races, religions, and nationalities. The movie brings out the assumptions we have about ppl from different cultures with whom we interact in the course of our daily lives. 2.
There is an invitation of college teens Jimmy Lane and Bill Harper to Mae’s apartment with a motive of alluring them to the drugs circles. It prompts Jimmy to drive Jack to get additional refer from his boss. As Jack alights, he gives Jimmy a joint, which makes Jimmy drive with madness and run over a pedestrian who later died from injuries hence the name reefer madness. To reduce complication Jack had a promise to
So I get to my seat, put the drink down, gave her the pop corn, I’m in relief, now I can just cruise. Right before the movie starts, a couple walks in, they look like they’re in their 40's. It kind of bums me out, but wait, they manage to sit right behind me and this girl even though there was probably another 150 seats open. We’re like whatever, we don’t need to move. All of a sudden, I start hearing them take their shoes off, and I think they kind of flung them off and it hit my chair, but it didn’t really bother me.
Kelvin Hernandez Mexican Cartels Lure American Teens as Killers LAREDO, Tex. — When he was finally caught, Rosalio Reta told detectives here that he had felt a thrill each time he killed. It was like being Superman or James Bond, he said. Gabriela Maldonado, whose son Gabriel Cardona became an assassin for a Mexican drug cartel as a teenager. “I like what I do,” he told the police in a videotaped confession.
The Rocky statue isn’t a work of art, or “an expression or application of human creative skill”, but merely a movie prop. Therefore the placement of the statue at the Philadelphia Art Museum isn’t the most appropriate location. The Rocky statue shouldn’t be near the museum. Although it is a statue, it is not considered an aspect art, because it holds more of a popular movie prop background than history. A museum holds art that is meaningful, expensive, rare, popular, and objects that are to be admired and observed.
Another racial stereotype that happened in the movie is when Cameron and Christine, a black couple, are driving home from a party and a white officer pulls them over for driving “while black”. He pulls them both out of the car and searches them. Officer Ryan makes them both stand next to each other, so Cameron can watch how Officer Ryan searches his wife. Officer Ryan runs his hands up Christine’s legs and pretty much violates her. Cameron didn’t want to do anything because he
After finding out that one of the suspects was detained, I would take each witness over to the squad car and let them have a chance of seeing if that is one of the suspects. (Without the suspect seeing them of course). This would also determine whether to make a preliminary arrest and would also justify a search of the suspect’s car and property. While still at the liquor store I would view all surveillance videos and try to see if the suspect detained is caught on videotape or at least try to see if his height and build match Next, what I would do is put the suspects in a lineup and have the witness/victim make a positive identification. Before the lineup is done, whether physical or photo, you have to explain to the victim/witness that the purpose of the lineup isn’t only for identification but to also exonerate the innocent.
To this can be added two key forebodings. One happens in the rest house scene: after the physical fight, Jake jumps on Evelyn’s car that is being shot from the back as it rolls away; this happens again in the final scene of the movie, but with fatal consequences. The other is also related to the final scene in the movie: after Jake has followed Evelyn to her other house where she keeps Katherine hidden, he surprises her in her car and during the dialogue, Evelyn leans on the steering wheel activating the car horn. This is the sound that denounces her death in the end of the movie; a motionless Evelyn is leaning on the steering wheel again and a prolonged car horn sound is heard. These forebodings are like hidden
