I made sure that I was using my bed for sleep only. During the week I left my apartment to go do my homework in the library instead of sitting on my bed and doing it. I also moved my TV to the living room, so I wouldn’t have the option to lay in bed and watch it. When it was time for bed, I put my cell phone on my night stand right after I set my alarms. I set my alarm for the same time every morning, and I tried my best to get to bed at the same time every night.
That definitely calms me down. Besides my fucked up family life, my life has been decently boring. I bet I was the only 17 year old girl who has never been out of Los Angeles, never been to a fair, never done alot of stuff, really. It is like an endless list. My highschool life was pretty boring so I am hoping my college life will be better.
Furthermore, there are many problems associated with an English director appropriating Gandhi’s story, a story that Gandhi did not necessarily want told, and using it in an overarching narrative of anti-imperialism. Although Attenborough clearly had very good intentions with his film, the real Gandhi, not the idealized one so often depicted, has so many contradictions and complexities associated with him that it is nearly impossible to accurately capture who he was and everything he stood for in a film.
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.
They can find no reasonable solution for the conundrum presented by his actions, so brainwashing is the only way out in the eyes of the government. It is my personal belief that extreme punishments for the actions of violent criminals have not been a decent deterrent for their continued actions. If society can find a way to learn from the lessons of our history and the visions presented by Kubrick, there may actually be an intelligent solution to the problem of crime. The assertions of Vincent Canby were dead on in their description of this film, and I agree wholeheartedly with him. The next step in this process is identifying the overall messages and learning from them, only then will there be any resolution to the problems of law and punishment.
Given the especially large number of students you see each semester, I don't expect any recollection of my presence in your COMM150 class-- I certainly wasn't an exemplary enough student to have left any lasting memories (which is both good and bad). But I wanted to share with you a small anecdote, because four years later I've realized that your class served as an important catalyst in the development of my critical thinking abilities. As a freshmen at the Altoona campus, I took your class on a whim because I needed a Comm class. Of course I was 'confident' (re: cocky) in my abilities, so I didn't study for exams and ended up in a bad place part-way through the semester. That's when you offered an extra-credit assignment that required an analysis on Do The Right Thing.
Coppola makes alterations to Heart of Darkness to achieve his own personal point that is very different from Conrad's, but his point is still not completely clear. Coppola's opposition to the war is obvious but he throws in a lot of other elements to try to add even more onto that. Coppola uses Kurtz to examine the importance of not judging, "The Hollowness of Men", and the Christlike figure of Kurtz himself. All of these are great ideas, but the ideas are just scattered throughout the movie and show no cohesiveness. However, one can still appreciate Coppola's thought-provoking ideas without completely understanding what they all mean.
I believe it caught him off guard because we never addressed the conflicts in our relationships. Everything that we had not discussed led up to this moment. A week goes by and we did not communicate, face-to-face or by text. I thought long and hard about what I wanted to do in this relationship. I talked to my friends and they said I should give him another chance and see if things change, so I did.
Revenge is a natural human response that we think will help us; however, many times it ends up hurting us. Based on my findings, revenge is viewed as acceptable, but experts say it can also be detrimental to those seeking retribution. All of the critic reviews commended director Martin Scorsese for his excellent movie Cape Fear. Revenge was mentioned in the reviews, but never expounded upon the subject in terms of whether it was acceptable or not. An assumption can be made that since the movie was praised, and no comment was given to the subject of revenge, it is an acceptable part of human nature.
Only dull machinery remains. This machinery is then capable of great inhumanity as it follows the scripture of its truth. Alcoholics can beat children, Capitalists can ravage countries, and Nationalists can fight wars (religious or profane) to exterminate other ethnicities.
