Red is the mediator or polemicist, meaning that he’s a smooth talker and debater. In Shawshank he’s know as the man that can get anything for you from the outside … for a price of course. He’s a crook with a good heart and somewhat good intentions, but he confides to the prison walls to blur the lines of reality outside in the real world. Inside the prison he has value to his name and his insecurities are concealed by the opaque violence, and hard stance of Shawshank’s environment. Hope motivates him, but he does anything in his will to cloak that fact.
The thought police is the most insidious aspect of the dystopian society of 1984 because the people are so scared of being watched and accused of thoughtcrime that they lose trust in anyone and everyone around them. The thought police is used by the party to control the society and their thoughts. Anyone simply walking in the street could be a member of the thought police, so you never know who is watching you. This diminishes the bonds between friends, neighbors, family, etc. because you never know whom you can trust, and even someone you have the most faith in could be the person to turn you in.
In fact, throughout the entire film, it is probably Davis’s amicable nature as well as cool reasoning that most persuades the jury members. He approaches the case in a naive style. He uses the phrase, “what if...” and “it might be possible” when he presents his ideas. He does not try to force his opinions on the other jurors; instead he just wants to understanding the reasoning behind their guilty verdict. Another example of a power tactic used by Davis is bargaining.
Following Oscar Grant as he performed his daily routine made it very easy to sit back and pay attention to what was occurring and the inevitable that would happen in the end. Another good observation Turan makes is how the director was not afraid to portray the flawed parts of the main character. "As much as "Fruitvale Station" makes no attempt to hide these things, it is also insistent that they do not define the man"(Turan 2013). Although this was not something I realized to be true until after reading this critic, I had to concur with Turan once again. Throughout the film we are continuously shown that Oscar Grant is not a perfect
There a lot of good teachings this movie can leave to any person because, at first, it teaches that nothing is impossible and that you must not give up however difficult that thing get; you always have to have hope. Andy Dufresne never lost hope; though, having been 20 years at prison for a crime that he didn´t commit. All the people have to have hope because it will help you in the difficult times, always better things are going to come but you need to have patient. Also, it teaches how strong a friendship can be or in the moment that you least expected you know a truthful friend, in the least expected place, also. “Red” a killer who has spent all his life at prison and then Andy who is an innocent man that suffers at prison, and the only dream that these two friends have is to be free.
The trouble arises when specific individuals are taught how to stop their ideas, so they are not stolen. Leonardo DiCaprio is great as his character, but unlike numerous other films he is featured in, this is conceivably his only part where his character alone does not hold the burden of the film or bear it equivalently with one actor/actress. Instead, this impeccable collective unites to make this movie flow, just as their characters cooperate to succeed in such a distinctive theft. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, and Tom Hardy are particularly great in their characters as well. The special effects in this film were also great, which is surprising
North Korea is a modern dystopia as they constantly monitor everyone with surveillance cameras, dehumanize each and every civilian and give them no freedoms as they are forced to stand still and let it happen. North Korea uses thousands of security cameras in order to keep track of all their civilians and prevent them from escaping the country. North Koreans feel as though they cannot say nor do anything to people even if they are their close friends. It is easy to get stabbed in the back as cameras watch you’re every move. You can’t trust anyone when people are starving and will do anything to get food.
Danger of Ignorance by Kantapan Ratchapon An abstract idea as ignorance is widely used as a theme in many literary works involved with religious or politics. An Enemy of People (1882) written by Henrik Ibsen is a play about politics and social issue as corruption related with ignorance of people. Ignorance can be viewed as an infected disease spreading widely throughout the town. The ignorance, as a consequence, obstructs the town from any developments. Besides, all kind of illegal or immoral activities would remain and root deeply in the society if most of citizens are ignorance.
Today, when I try to figure out what made some experiences sweet and what made few experiences bitter, I realize that it is our own reactions in different situations. Memories become sweet or bitter because of the way we react to every situation… Therefore, there is always a race between sweet memories and bitter memories. The ratio between the two, will determine our desire to remember our past. Every individual desires to sit back, and cherish the memories of “Good olden days! !” But, whenever we remember our past, why do some devastating memories strike our mind?
Then the people too were tuned into a joke, being down sizes as “Demon, Low Castes, and Untouchables” (653) New laws were set, making the Indian people outcastes and slaves on their own land. Shambuka was one of the men mentioned in the song who tried to gain knowledge. This was unthinkable due to the new laws. “Untouchables” would not have the option to do or be anything but a manual laborer with no education. To keep the laws set, and the people living in fear, Rama had Shambuka beheaded.
