The movie focuses more on McMurphy as a christ symbol or hero instead. Another aspect the movie loses is Chief's “foggy” hallucinations. The combine is completely lost and nurse ratched’s seemed less evil in the movie as she did from the book. I wish that these scenes were incorporated but with the change of character point of view I can see why it would be hard to conquer such effect. Both the book and movie got to this point by Formans decision to change perspective from Chief to McMurphy.
I was a little upset that Rahim Khan didn't tell Amir that he knew what happened to Hassan. He only said that "there is a way to be good again". I felt that the movie didn't properly portray Amir's guilt over this situation, especially since it was such an important aspect in his life - it shaped the man he became. Also, I felt Amir's time with Sohrab before heading back to America was too brief and too easy. In the novel, they really struggled with many things - the adoption process, Sohrab trusting Amir and most importantly, Sohrab's attempted suicide.
At one point in the film, the audience was supposed to feel sympathetic towards Grendel because of his pain from hearing the loud noises coming from Herot. However, in the poem, I felt no sympathy for Grendel whatsoever because he wasn’t a childish monster, he was the ruthless demonic beast he was supposed to be. Another example is Wilglaf’s role. In the poem, Wiglaf played a huge part because he is this brave warrior who was Beowulf’s right hand man. In the movie, Wiglaf only had a small role which doesn’t make sense because later on, Wiglaf becomes the King of Geats.
It leads to a lot of confusion when he talks to a great number of the people he encounters throughout his journey to find Wellington’s killer. The first notable instance of this is when he cannot empathize with the fact that his father finds Christopher’s “detecting” unacceptable and possibly harmful to the family. However, this characteristic is integral to the story and its development because if he’d understood that nobody wanted him to snoop around there would have been no substance to the novel – it would have ended right away once his father told him to stop investigating. This also really ties in with the fact that Christopher requires order in his life. This characteristic causes him many difficulties in such a chaotic world.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (Ken Kesey versus Milos Forman) Cinema is the produce of a movie as an art. However, the art of cinema can often vary from the original plot and message the storyline tries to convey. For instance, the 1975 film verson of the novel “One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest” greatly varies from the novel. In order to better represent the message that Ken Kesey’s depicted in the novel I purpose for the character portrayal of Bromden to have a greater role since it focuses on the transformation of character of the men and give a greater emphasis on the theme of societal structure. Firstly, by portraying Bromden to be a more dominant character Chief Bromden acts primarily as a narrator who describes external conditions rather than his own psychology.
One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’ (One Flew…) was made in 1975 by Warner Bros and was directed by Milos Forman, based on Ken Kessey’s novel by the same name. It is one of the best films which fits into the drama genre and was made in 70’s American society. Changing self plays a very important role in One Flew…. These are That Billy Bibbit ceases to stutter towards the end of the film, the nurse loses her power over the patients, Chief Bromden goes from pretending to be deaf and dumb to taking an active role in the ward, McMurphy (McM) changes from exploiting the patients to giving his life for them. This is conveyed in the film by the use of dialogue, camera shots and various techniques.
I think that the movie was good in concept but it was a slow movie to watch due to the lack of immediate action. Although not everything in the movie was bad. Even though the movie had a slow start and was lacking in color it had a good plot. The story of a small town boy becoming a war hero is very popular and can be a great success. The movie could have improved by providing more realistic explosions in battle and if the actors talked slower and more clearly so the audience might understand them better.
McEwan tells the story through his first person narrator, Joe. His ideas come across as contrasting, maybe hinting at his future lack of structure as a result of these events and the trauma they cause. The first sentence in the chapter is ‘The beginning is simple to mark,’ however in this chapter alone there are many theories and ideas thrown out there despite very little information being given away. He explains this by saying later “I am holding back the laying information”…”because this was a time when other outcomes were still possible”. With this, Joe describes many things in his current situation such as his girlfriend and the different settings in a large amount of detail, however, the one thing he does not describe once and the reader is given no information on is Joe himself- this could have a deeper meaning in the sense that Joe may be a man who always thinks about other people (however this may be contrasted with his deep sorrow and feeling of selfishness for releasing the balloon).
Why was Friar Lawrence blamed? There are many people to blame for a majority of the tragedy that happened in Romeo and Juliet. I personally think Friar Lawrence is most to blame. Although he was only trying to help the young couple out, he should of thought about what the future would bring. He also did not tell anyone about them getting married, which was a really bad decision.
I also tried my best to eliminate other external barriers like bad lighting as he mainly depended on his sight so I made sure nothing would interrupt that. It was essential that I also showed a lot of empathy towards him as losing your hearing is a very depressing process to go through alone. However, when assisting Mr P to the hospital the interaction with him in Group was a lot more difficult than on a one to one basis. This is mainly because when there’s a lot of other people around it makes it harder for him to focus on only my actions. While speaking to the doctor it was very hard for Mr P to understand or hear what was being asked or said.
