The most prominent resemblance between Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) and the infamous Apocalypse Now (1979) is the glimmer sense of realism thorough the movie. The director, Francis Ford Coppola has been known for his verisimilitude; effortlessly creating and directing each setting in the film looks schematized and deliberately natural. Innately, the one of the most apparent functions of a setting is to create an impression of reality that presents the viewer a sense of a real place and time and the sensation of being there. His consciousness of realism admits the great importance of an authentic setting play in making his films overwhelmingly imaginable. With a judiciously supervision from the director, numerous factors such as location and setting, costume and visual design contribute to a successful plausible film.

The novel The Great Gatsby is a classic and when any classic is remade into a movie it is easy to find great things as well as flaws. The movie does compare to the book quite a bit. The main plot of the story is not changed, as well as the big scenes within the book. In the novel Nick moves to west egg which is where he meets Gatsby this is true in the movie as well. Nick then helps Gatsby reunite with Daisy by having tea.

One could say that Joel and Ethan Coen, the directors of the movie, purposely incorporate this scene for several reasons, but the main one is to reveal and incorporate the message from The Odyssey. By having Wash so readily take in his cousin, and his cousin’s friends, the two directors wave a red flag, drawing the viewers attention to this theme. This also shows how hospitable King Alcinous was towards Odysseus. Another example of hospitality throughout the movie is found through... ... middle of paper ... ... that anyone could enjoy. By creating a story with different characters (which all blatantly stand for characters and happenings in The Odyssey), they put a twist on a classic tale, which almost all people have read, making it more desirable while keeping the archetype of the story.
