The purpose of this essay is to answer the question of how accurate the Hollywood movie, Troy, really was and whether it portrayed Homer’s tragic, charming side of the story or the predicted historical side. Troy is precise in its portrayal of the setting and the intensity of the Trojan war. Nevertheless, the reason to why the war occurred has many believable theories. The story was written by a very famous Greek writer and poet, Homer, the author of the well-known Iliad and Odyssey. The source of the Movie Troy came from the Iliad, an epic poem written by Homer around 800 B.C., despite that the actual war occurred 400 years before.

Maurice Jarre, one of the most prolific film music composers in the 20th century, can very much be the guy who the past generation can trace every single tune they find themselves humming unintentionally, to quote The New York Times: "[He was] among the most sought-after composers in the movie industry." One doesn 't get that much attention unless they wholeheartedly deserve it, at least back then. Despite Jarre mainly composing for concert works, he 's mostly known for his film scores. He had one of the earliest composer/director cooperations with director David Lean, composing for most of his movies, including Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago, and the last movie Lean ever directed before he died, Ghost. He also had significant
Does Casablanca have a political message? I could agree with both, the reason why i could do so was because maybe the one who had the idea of the movie was touched by what was happening in those years and felt that creating a movie within that era could be of a symbol. I also think that the director was trying to tell people or show them that this is what life looks like, giving them time to think of what 's really happening. 2. In the scene where Ilsa tries to get Rick to give her the papers, there are several shots that focus on Ilsa as she tells Rick the truth about Paris (time code 1:23: 27).
Neither of these authors has any experience of oppressive regimes but both feel morally outraged by the Stasi and Stalin’s rule. Orwell is inspired by Stalin using the USSR. Post war Germany had the Stasi to make sure it remains a communist country and not get influenced by capitalism. The third person limited narrative favouring the point of view of Winston the protagonist. On the other hand, Funder who has a first-person narrative, but Funder’s text is polyvocal because she uses a lot of direct speech from her interviewees and she has narrative commentary which influences the perspective
For one thing, the only understanding of a political class that Ingo Hasselbach has an understanding of is his own. The neo-nazis. This is obvious because the term “Nazi” or “neo-nazi” is mentioned in almost every page of the book. Ingo Hasselbach is also bias in his writing material. Since he was a neo-nazi, he is obviously going to shut out any perspective from any other political class.
Hollywood studio style. Use this week’s films. I watched Casablanca (1942), with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. It has been a few decades since I last saw Casablanca, I tried to pay attention to the small details of filming, angles, panning and editing along with watch the lighting, of the Mise en scene. The opening introduction to the movies shows a boat and other modes of transportation overlaying a map drawing the audience to another place and time and leaving the audience on a busy street in Casablanca.
Hitler’s descriptions and ideas could potentially cause some other(s) hatred/discriminating groups to basically recreate the holocaust but instead of the Jews, with the people of their choice. The Holocaust was a very dark time and it shouldn’t have ever happened but it did and we have to do whatever we can to prevent it from happening again. If the Holocaust were to reoccur it could be much worse than it was because nowadays we have more advanced technology and weaponry. Even though MeinKampf would tell many people a lot about the history of the Holocaust and it tells the story from the perspective of the leader, it should still be banned. The Holocaust happened once and it doesn’t need to cause more chaos than it already has in the past.
Cinematography is critical to the success of any movie. Cinematography uses composition, lighting, depth of field, and camera angles to determine what the audience sees. Casablanca’s cinematography directs the audience’s attention, shapes the audiences feelings, and reveals the theme of the movie. Cinematography directs the audience’s attention and acts as the viewer’s eyes. The cinematography highlights Casablanca as a dangerous place filled with deception.
Sargent York the movie takes a multitude of artistic liberties in the depiction of Alvin York 's life. Not all of them factual though as I have already pointed out. Hollywood didn 't want to shine a negative light on the military. This movie is a pro war movie. I believe that one reason for some of these positive inaccuracies is to glamorize what happened to York, especially since unrest in Europe had began already signifying what would later become World War II.
Who was to blame for Pearl Harbor? “December 7, 1941, a date which will live in infamy…. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people, in their righteous might, will win though absolute victory.” President Franklin D. Roosevelt said this inspiring quote about the tragic event that occurred in Oahu, Hawaii. Many people have debated about who really was to blame for Pearl Harbor, could Roosevelt have done something to prevent it? Was their more to the story?
