The fictional world is full of chaos, as people tend to prefer unstable theories to countless philosophies. Specifically, there is a literary shift from linearity and order to randomness and fragmentation. Consequently, Postmodernist writers understand that their works are subject to interpretation; however, they believe that the flexibility of understanding in texts is the basis for the development of innovative ideas in society. Moreover, Kurt Dinan writes in a nonlinear, flexible fashion by writing with a component of Mystery. Subsequently, the reader can make different predictions on what will occur throughout Don’t Get Caught, and the ability to predict and analyze uniquely is one of the principal ideals of Postmodernist literature.
The Giver and other dystopian novels like Fahrenheit 451 have some similarities and differences in the story line. First, The Giver and Fahrenheit 451 both share the fact that people are being controlled on the amount of knowledge that they know. Additionally, both societies have no idea of how they came to be. On the other hand, in The Giver Jonas slowly starts to realize that something about him is changing because he can see the color red but, in Fahrenheit 451 Guy Montag just wants to take a risk because of his curiosity. Second, in Fahrenheit 451, Montag is a “firefighter” except, in his society he starts the fire instead of putting them out, while in The Giver the jobs/assignments are practical for everyday life in the community.
These stereotypes can carry positive or negative connotations, reflecting traits that we either admire, or deplore (Hurn & Tomalin, 2013). Often these stereotypes are not based on personal experiences, but rather they are acquired from the media or inherited from our own social groups (Scharrer & Ramasubramanian, 2015; Hurn & Tomalin, 2013). District 9 not only displays how stereotypes are created, but also how they can be overcome. As the film is fictional, the viewer has few preconceptions about the aliens in the film. It is only when they are introduced through the film that we gain an understanding of the creatures.
When reading a few of Flannery O’Connor’s stories, one cannot help but make a connection with her intensive stories and those of a television show. Both take mostly everyday people and exaggerate them into an absurd nature. Her stories and television shows use shock factors to draw in readers and viewers, respectively. While television shows tend to vary in themes and messages, Flannery O’Connor’s short stories tend to be focused on a few limited messages and themes. Television shows are mostly mindless channels of entertainment, Flannery O’Connor uses her characters not only to entertain, but to also cause readers to reflect inward and think.
With the actors and the film choices, these helped diversified messages to dip into the film. Even though the film was mainly focused on the Prospera’s revenge and reconciliation, Taymor also brilliantly convey other small themes to the audiences as the tools to carry out the film. Such as the magic, which Prospera an Ariel tormented Antonio’s group, and the love with Ferdinand and Miranda, which lead to comprise with Alonso and Prospera. Furthermore, Taymor expressed usurpation, and treachery of Caliban and Alonso’s servant in a more absurd way than the original play, which I think it was one of Taymor’s dramatic choices in the film. Whereas “Much ado about nothing” is totally explicated in comedy, and love, albeit some treachery, reconciliation are in the film.
Bier’s works are probably equally, if not more, influenced by her family background. Born to Jewish parents in 1960, Bier feels that her cultural backgrounds lends her strength, especially her family values, which is often reflected in her films’ characters. In her first film Freud Leaving Home, the manuscript was by Marianne Goldman, who was Jewish-Swedish, and narrates a Jewish family facing and trying to deal with love, sickness and death, and also sets the table for discourse regarding what it means to be Jewish and the associated cultural stereotypes in the eyes of both the non-Jewish and the Jewish themselves. Bier has a very strong opinion of the Jewish culture herself, and is interested in using the film medium to explore the Jewish

Controversial themes have long been a component of memorable film. These particular films touch on topics audiences might have typically found taboo or litigious, often dealing with ethical and social affairs. A prime example of this is the 1997 sci-fi film Gattaca. In a nutshell, Gattaca is a tale about a genetically caste era featuring modified humans and technologically reinforced discrimination. This world is no longer prejudice against class, gender, or religion but rather on DNA itself.
Fictional narratives that are designed to evoke a feeling of melancholy or thrill in audiences are those that I believe to most embody my directing style. Stories that explore real world issues and are grounded in contemporary society are my preference. More specifically I strive to tell stories that mesh elements of reality with surreal and unreal elements. My want and my desire is to direct narratives that are as captivating story wise as they are visually. I hope to one day use my artistic license as a director to mold fictional worlds in the world of film and television that will amaze and engross
In this essay Peter Moss argues that television news are an interesting and instructive example of our current condition of culture, embracing both the modern and the post-modern. He uses textual analysis to indicate that while the methods of news presentations and the details of narrative structure may be relatively complex, many events in political and social history are theoretical with the imperatives of this medium’s entertainment principles. For mass commercial television news productions, the cultural judgments that must lie behind the selections pose cultural and social dilemmas. However Moss argues that for individual members of the audience, the surfaces of social and private life are constantly changing, and by eschewing placements
