Freedom!?!? I’m looking for a little bit of Shaw shank redemption Josh Date Religion 1. How does the movie illustrate internal and external freedom? The movie illustrates internal and external freedom by showing how Andy not only feels free but showing how he is free even though he is locked up in prison. The film shows Andy working on the rooftop with his fellow inmates.
Andy in his escape venture needed an alibi; he needed to create an alias to protect his true identity as a man in need to escape. Andy created the timid, kind and outgoing man that performed bank advice and was well liked throughout the system through this he was able to evidently execute his plan without anyone even suspecting that mild mannered Andy Dufresne had escaped the walls of Shawshank Prison in 1966. “Courage is grace through pressure.” Ernest
He is powerful, clever, and determined in everything he does. Odysseus shows his cunning throughout his various adventures. One example is the way he escapes from the cave of the Kyklops. When asked his name, he deludes the kyklops into believing his name is “Nohbdy”, This way, when the kyklops cries out for help, the others hear that “Nobody’s tricked [him],” and walk away (Homer.157). In order to leave the cave, Odysseus has to again prove how astute he is.
But now as he holds up the Arkenstone he is able to prove to himself that truly he has become a burglar. This represents slyness because he is going behind Thorin’s and the other dwarves’ back by having the Arkenstone and also not saying anything to them. “But I suppose I must tell the dwarves about it---some time. They did say I could pick and choose my own share; and I think I would choose this, if they took all the rest!” (pg. 257).
An illusion of the creation of a human life is being meshed together in this distinct piece of work. It is a portrait of an artist fighting solely for freedom using the power of music as his weapon. The tiny pictures that make up this portrait are in both color and black and white and together show inspiring details from the life of Robert Nesta Marley. Masses of colorful records, which represent the lyrics intended to motivate listeners everywhere, make up the darkness of Marley’s dreadlocks. His dreadlocks are a mark of freedom and represent the Lion of Judah.
“His judgment cometh and that right soon” and to wait for it with patient hope is the crux of the message of the film, “The Shawshank Redemption”. Frank Darabont, the director, uses such powerful themes to masterfully develop the antipodal characters of Andy Dufresne and the warden Samuel Norton, as well to rouse overwhelming feelings in the audience. He achieves this through the use of deep symbolism together with effective cinematography, music and lighting. “Hope is a good thing and good things never die”. Andy speaks out every prisoner’s deepest thought in this quote.
The writer of this article talks about how the basement isn’t just a hiding place for a Jew or a refuge to learn but it is a place to rebel against authority when Max transforms it into a setting for creative/political activity by painting over Hitler’s Mein Kampf erasing Hitler’s authority and becoming his own authority. Maslin, Janet. “Stealing to Settle a Score with Life.” New York Times, Published by Janet Maslin, Monday 27 March 2006. Wednesday 30 April 2014. This article is a review on the book itself; however the article also talks about important points involving the main character Liesel Meminger “the book thief” and how they dealt with life during the war.
Some of the techniques used to show this are lighting, narration/voiceover and costume. Lighting is a very important aspect of the movie regarding the idea of hope. Lighting is important because it shows how the idea of hope is shown throughout the Shawshank prison. For example, when we see Shawshank prison, the lighting is very grey and dark with lots of shadows to suggest that there is no life or hope in the prison. The shadows along the building tell the audience that the men inside are trapped and aren’t free.
The flying buttresses provide a sort of playground for Quasimodo as we see him swinging down the side of the building but it also gives the feeling of his own personal prison because he can’t escape outside of the bars. Notre Dame also is a very dark cathedral though it does have windows. This reinforces the concept that it is not a place to live, and dark is associated with evil, which the town tries to make Quasimodo out to be. Whitney Studdard, however, would look at the importance of the architectural features and see how they revolutionized architecture whereas Worsley would see them as a nice backdrop for the movie and use them to set the scene, while not focusing on the historical significance. All of the pillars in the Cathedral are
Through the prologue of Goodbye Lemon , Davies wants to convey to his audience that you can bring any character to life through writing. Jack had brought Dexter back to life (as Jack states in the last line of the prologue) although he did not have any memory of him, other than the fateful day Dexter died. Storytelling is vital here because people often twist their memories as they write, because they want to get a point across to their readers. Jack tries to bring back memories of who Dexter could have been by writing different scenarios, thus bending his memories in order to find out something about his brother who he does not remember. That which is demanded by ethics greatly
