Truffaut also went on to say that he was concerned that the film writer, as opposed to the director, seemed to be the more important figure involved in the completion of a film (Staples 2). In 1957 another French film critic, Andre Bazin, wrote an article entitled “La Politique des Auteurs.” According to Staples, it was in this article that auteur theory was first discussed in great detail (3). Bazin stated that auteurism involves “choosing the personal factor in artistic creation as a standard of reference” (Caughie 45). In other words, he believed that a director’s personal vision should be
But I believe it was enhanced by the carefully selected cast, that were more than capable of fulfilling each of their individual roles and submitting their character to the ‘grand scheme’ of things. I would suggest this production to any individual willing to sit in and enjoy a well-written
The acting is spot-on in this film. Some other interpretations of Macbeth through film, or even in a theater production, can tend to be overdramatized and can really turn you off from the film/play from the get go. This is not the case in the Goold film. Patrick Stewart as Macbeth and Kate Fleetwood as Lady Macbeth speaking these lovely verses bring just the right amount of excitement and coyness to their roles. Its elements such as this that hook you from the beginning and keep you engrossed until the very end.
He took a risk that most men would not dare take. He may have started off doing it for the wrong reasons but in the end, all went well. Petruchio did not get lucky when it came to taming Katherine; he had a method. A method that proved successful when it came to taming Kate. Toward the end of Act IV, Scene I Petruchio makes a speech that mentions how his method of taming Katherine is similar to the method of taming a female falcon.
You might ask yourself how can a man be so pious but yet have untrustworthy ways and evil qualities? Tartuffe is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, he’s really not what he portrays himself to be, but Orgon is really fooled by his great performance. When the play begins Madame Pernelle is portrayed as a very senile old lady, she is unswerving. When the play begins the family members are discussing the hypocrite Tartuffe, they see right threw his lies, but get ridiculed by Madame Pernelle when she hears them talking about him. She shows how much she is fooled by him too in this phrase: "Whatever he’s blame for deserves criticism.
In the book the characters of Atticus, Jem, and Scout have you captivated. I did not enjoy the movie because it didn’t explain things as much as I would have liked it to. Also in the movie they did not show some of the scenes which occurred in the book and I believe that those scenes are important. Overall To Kill a Mockingbird is a good book that I really enjoyed
AP : In great literature, no scene of violence exists for its own sake response, A violent scene in the novel All The Pretty Horses persuaded the reader to believe that the situation controls the character’s actions based upon it. McCarthy’s novels are filled with ineluctable evil that creates the suspense violence in the novel. Even if the scene seem peaceful and just plain situation, McCarthy always find his way to make the setting seems dangerous or evil. People’s life, people’s story fiction or non fiction, there will always be a violence in it, it is what makes the people interested, or its how they keep the story going just like how McCarthy did in All the Pretty Horses. Before John Grady left his ranch, he wanted to fulfill
Despite this, the two mockingbird figures, one being very, very white (‘Boo’ Radley) and the other being extremely ‘velvety’ dark (Tom Robinson) are not part of the normal society in Maycomb. This does not mean that they are bad, but just that the people in Maycomb focus much of what they think on the surface of the person. This can be related to Mary Shelley’s ‘Frankenstein’, in which people base what they think on what they see. Frankenstein is also a normal being, but has been rejected by society because of his external features, just like the two ‘mockingbirds’ in To Kill A Mockingbird. All of these characters are kind beings and as can be seen by Tom in the courthouse he ‘felt right sorry’ for Miss Mayella.
He also references Tarquin, a Roman tyrant, and his wolf, an animal that would alert him to any danger or threat. Macbeth’s conscience is growing more and more powerful causing him to grow ambivalent about his plan to murder Duncan. It is important to remember that at the beginning of the play, Macbeth was an honorable man who loved and respected his king, so this circumstance is extremely new to him. This soliloquy in which he deliberates over the plan shows the internal struggle that he has. He knows that what he is about to do is horrifying, which is why he implies all those evil images in the passage.
Another aspect of Romanticism that Tom Sawyer displays is his reason and logic being replaced by unrealistic and fanciful thinking: "Every animal [including rattlesnakes] is grateful for kindness and petting, and they wouldn’t THINK of hurting a person that pets them. Any book will tell you that " (140). Making the connection to Romantic ideals, Mark Twain characterizes Tom Sawyer as not discerning logically, but rather having delusions of grandeur. Through the character of Tom Sawyer, Mark Twain is able to hyperbolize the aspects of Romantic literature that he discerns to be flawed as well as create a foil for the main character, Huckleberry Finn. During the times Tom Sawyer is not present in Huck's life, Huck is able to devise plans in most circumstances even if his plans do stay relatively simple.
