Arlington Road may have some similar points from Rear Window, it really should not be compared to Hitchcock's film, and definitely should not be compared to Rear Window, since they have different story lines, are from two completely different generations and two different directors, and neither one is a remake of the other. Hitchcock's style of telling a story consists of the protagonist and antagonist being everyday people, but neither one of them is inherently good or evil. Each character has good and evil traits, but what makes them good or evil in a Hitchcock film is how far they are willing to be pushed before they snap. Point-of-view shots are also extensively used to put the viewer in the shoes of the character. His films also tend to take place in everyday locale, such as Rear Window taking place in the courtyard of a small apartment complex.
Of course, it would’ve been a pain to film an entire movie from one person’s point of view, much less include narrations and backgrounds. Overall, despite the film’s outstanding ability to match the novel’s original storyline, Ken Kesey does not depict Chief Bromden’s growth in a successful, accurate, and admirable way.
The idea that Lang is not punished at the end and the blame is put on the innocent is the total opposite theme that Hitchcock relays in his films. After viewing both Arlington Road and Rear Window, I believe that Arlington Road did not live up to its Hitchcockian roots. The main reasons are because Arlington Road had characters not relatable to the masses, refrained from keeping the movie from the point of view of Faraday, and the terrorist plots were blamed on the protagonist rather than the actual villain. Overall, I felt Arlington Road was a great thriller but when compared to Hitchcock, it came up short.
The viewer will watch what is happening, trying to get a sense of the plot, but the plot, really, is unimportant. The very nature of plot demands a sense of linearity, and this movie lacks such a characteristic. However, the plot is also the most important aspect of the film, because, ultimately, almost everything each character does seems to be part of a dream in the mind of the central character, Fred Madison. Consequently, what happens is not merely manifest content to be brushed aside. Hidden within it is the latent content which will give the viewer an understanding of what is happening in the mind of this man.
For the rest of you who may not see the depth of this fantastic film, by the end of this discourse, I hope to get you to See the power and profundity beneath the surface. To make this easier, I’m going to break down the movie’s most prominent aspects. I think the best thing with which to start should be the central idea of the dichotomized equality of Smith and Neo, and of the machines and the humans. From there, we’ll consider the characters and their symbolic significance. We’ll follow that up with various philosophies offered throughout the trilogy, which is, by the way, what I mean when I say “The Matrix.” If I come up with anything else after that, I’ll edit it in.
The horror!” holds the most weight because not only does it provide emphasis, it shows that Kurtz is processing the information in front of him, albeit a little too late. In addition to my initial reading of this line, I thought about how the repetition really sheds light on how there is a constant duality of opposing forces of violence and benevolence, light and dark, colonizers and colonized, sane and insane, etc. Both horror’s actually being vocalized makes a clear distinction that they are at odds with each other while also emphasizing each other. In my most recent reading, this line could be about Kurtz being distraught over the fact that he’s done, his reign is over, making him completely selfish in his last words because he’s upset at himself that he lost control. Both of my readings can be
Scientists did find “black gunk” in the water that testing confirmed was petroleum hydrocarbons, but no proof exists that it came from BP’s well (Klein 17). It is also true that some of the marine life in the Gulf is dying.

Some symbols may be applicable to only certain people or all people depending on individual or collective knowledge and experience. The point is this is much more effective then having the character say, "I am nervous". The fact we feel slightly nervous ourselves is due to the fact that, through "wish fulfillment", we identif... ... middle of paper ... .... A particularly good example of this is Hitchcock's, Vertigo. Hitchcock shows a conscious awareness of this process and uses it to create a powerfully communicative film. Some films, however, do not use this process and deliberately negate it by calling attention to the apparatus of film and distancing the audience from the story.
They live in and on our bodies. The only places that you will not find bacteria living in us are in our blood and spinal fluid (CDC, 2013). While many bacteria are beneficial to us and we could not live without them, a number of bacteria are harmful to us and cause diseases. Bacteria reproduce or replicate in just a number of hours, which leads them to evolve rapidly and smoothly adapt to their surroundings (Emerging, 2005). Bacteria are unique because they are able to transfer genes both vertically and horizontally (Wright, 2010).
Drill can destroy habitats; disrupt animal life force people to give up their traditional way of living their lives. However, Alaska has a very poor economy and drilling there would create jobs and help to bring money back to the area. I was a congressman from Alaska I would be weighing my options, I would do a thorough study of the lands and after that I would allow small portions of drilling for oil in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). Moreover, I would be making periodic assessments of every drilling area. If indeed there is a fact proven that oil development harms local wildlife, I will then conduct re-assessment of the ANWR drilling.
