The original script remained the same for the movie adaptation. However, even if we say that both adaptations are pretty much the same, there will be revisions, small or big, just like any other typical stage play turned into film. The opening scene is one of the key points which makes the film version outstands the play version because of visual effects that is implemented to the movie. Censorship played a significant role in altering the image of the play that is why original screen is different from play due to regulations of Motion Picture Association of America. The film version has less exposure of the issue when it comes to bisexuality and child exploitation compare to stage play version.
The Handmaids are resorting to using butter as moisturizer to maintain their beauty. All the while grasping to the thin thread of hope that is left. The Handmaids want sex to not just be sex, but to be making love with passion and desire. For some the hope fleets and they end it all because it is easier than facing reality. Feuer has to say, “Atwood's point is that the truth of human individuality and (only through this individuality) human connectedness is absolute, inviolable” (4).
The opening scene where there is a gun fight between the Montagues and Capulets was ridiculous and was nothing as to with what was written. Once seeing Franco Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet, my mind was blown because it was how I pictured it when reading the play. It was geared towards Shakespeare’s time with the props, clothes, and scenes that Zeffirelli had chosen to use. Even though these two films are about the same play, the ways the directors choose to film them make each one a unique film. Such as Zeffirelli uses a more realistic feel as to Luhrmann who uses a postmodern feel in his.
It more becomes a man/ Than gilt his trophy. the breasts of Hecuba/ When she did suckle Hector, looked not lovelier/ Than Hector 's forehead when it spit forth blood/ At Grecian sword contemning” (1.3, 36-40). Volumnia believes that Coriolanus being bloodied is more lovelier than a mother breastfeeding her child. This is an incestuous thought that Volumnia is fantasizing about. Just as she did before with thinking about Coriolanus as her husband, she is now saying that she would get more pleasure from seeing Coriolanus bloodied than him performing the action of sucking on her breasts.
This pre-Hays Code gangster film also contains a cry for political and social change regarding the way in which the federal government handles crime. The earliest to be compared, this film employs all of the characteristics of classic Hollywood style, as well as setting the mode for subsequent films of this type. Melodramatic in nature, gangster films use conventional characters such as heroes, heroines, and villains often placed in narratives that include predictable plot elements such as improbable reversals of fortune, accidents, and last-minute rescues. These characteristics can be identified in both Scarface and Martin Scorsese’s The Departed. Upon completion of critical analysis of both of these films, it may be recognized that Scorsese employs the use of allusion to previous works known in the art, and in particular, The Departed may be seen as paying homage to Scarface: The Shame of the Nation.
What was regarded serious in the past becomes mockery nowadays. William Shakespeare, one of the greatest English play writers, has a profound influence upon different societies globally since the fifteenth century, for his plays inspire many contemporary artists to present new scopes reflecting their societies. Considered as one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies, Macbeth has a completely disparate interpretation in the movie Scotland, PA, which translates the original play into a black comedy. A Scottish royal and general, Macbeth the protagonist undergoes a demonic transformation in personality, in which he unethically takes the crown by murdering numerous characters. The director of the movie alters the plot while maintaining the basic semblance of power, ambition, and masculinity from Shakespeare’s work.
Say that she frown, I'll say she looks as clear As morning roses newly wash'd with dew ...If she deny to be wed, I'll crave the day When I shall ask the banns and when be married" (II, i). Petruchio plans to win this woman over by simply confronting her temper with flattery. Of course, the infamous Kate lives up to her reputation and is every bit as cold and difficult as Petruchio has been told to expect. After observing arguments, base insults, and even a blow inflicted upon Petruchio, the audience begins to lose faith in Petruchio's unusual methods. This extremely clever gentleman, however, will not easily give up such a dowry.
The Cambridge University Press audio version fits into a Aristotelian Tragedy or Revenge Tragedy, and provides a classic interpretation of the play. The movie Hamlet directed by Kenneth Baranagh also fits into these two interpretations however the omission of Fortinbras, results in the Denouement and the restoration of order is not addressed. This affects the meaning of the play as it portrays the sense that the play hasn’t quite finished as not everything has been resolved. A Freudian interpretation will dramatically alter several relationships affecting the meaning of the play as other changes are needed to be made to compensate these relationship changes.

Techniques Used to Direct Two Film Versions of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet Having watched two different film adaptations of 'Romeo and Juliet', it is clear to see that the two directors, Baz Luhrmann and Franco Zeffirelli, have used a number of different techniques, quite differently at times, to put across their particular interpretations of the play. These methods and different interpretations are very obvious if you should study the same scene as portrayed in each film. We looked at the introduction and the opening scene of each film to compare the differences between them and found that the differences, though some were more subtle than others, were obvious. Whilst Franco Zeffirelli's adaptation uses far more traditional techniques, Baz Luhrmann used a far more modern approach to the production of the classic play. Zeffirelli's film uses the original concept of the film; it sticks to the original setting and structure of the play, keeping the originality at a maximum.
Are the tragedies from shakespeare different from the tragedies before William Shakespeare started writing them? William shakespeare’ two best tragedies are Macbeth and Julius Caesar made an impact because of the way Shakespeare came up with his ideas, real life events impacted his imagination. In 1599 Shakespeare wrote the tragedy of Julius Caesar. And in that time it is believed that the tragedy was written for Julius Caesar himself even though he was dead also to tell the story of his assassination the impact may have also be caused because of the them he used Public self versus private self of julius caesar. But in 1606 The Tragedy of Macbeth was written for King James the first this made a bigger impact because it used three themes of Ambition, kingship,and evil.
