If the author provides examples of what someone said long ago, the readers captivated with his examples because things and people were different back then. His ending idas are not clear for the readers to his final statement and their final take on the article with construing examples and surprising thesis statement all the at the end of the article. He talks about how technologies overflow an individual 's perception of reality and then he puts his main idea the end saying no one can achieve personal authenticity (5). It seemed unclear and sloppy because the reader might not get nothing from the article. It would have made more sense if u had the thesis at the beginning but not end to prove his
Franco's efforts to restore Spain, consist with those of a totalitarian leader. Totalitarianism by the definition is the character or quality of an autocratic or authoritarian individual, group, or government with absolute control. The public, aware of the failure of human and governmental values in the war, were drawn to extremist politics. Francisco Franco brought major key features found in totalitarian ruling to Spain.

Self-centered behavior prevents progress because nothing is done for the greater good. His solution calls for a new age of thinkers all together. He writes that the “tempo…is much too slow and sleepy for the more impatient ones”, referring to the avant-garde, that has the ability to emerge from the masses and create new art and philosophies (62).

Branagh’s version of Henry V may have taken a major step toward through screening more skeptical response about war compared to Olivier’s version. However, some limitations can be identified through pluralistic viewpoints he takes regarding the issue of war and power mechanism; specifically, the interpretation of Henry V as a heroic leader, though he regards the innocent sacrifices of war as a necessary evil, indicates the irony of Branagh whose original intention is to create realism theater (Jackson, 2007: 241).

Thus, in bringing Shakespeare’s plays to modern film audiences, it can be evaluated that the two versions have achieved both artistic and commercial successes, greatly influencing the contemporary society and
