In the same way he is an incomplete politician also. We cannot justify him as a complete human being rather he can be stated as a helpless king who has declined for his stubborn nature. He is neither a hero nor a villain rather he is a victim of his self-indulgence. (Bloom. 249-150) In Shakespeare 's view, Richard is a failure as a king not because he is immoral, nor because he is too sensitive and refined for the job, but because he misunderstands the nature of kingship.
The movie review written by Roger Ebert he feels as though the story in "Central Station" by Walter Salles is not to be a heartwarming one, but a story based on a journey of two peoples reawakening. Also, he believes that the success of the money was not in the director Walter Salles ' favor, but the actress Fernanda Montenegro. She became one with her character and successfully played the role of an unsentimental person who later crosses over in to kinder person. Ebert feels the movie is not about the Josue and his struggle to find his father, but of Dora and her struggle to find herself. Central Station is a movie about the documentation of a journey between a woman named Dora who is very unhappy in her life and writes letters for illiterate
The producers, it seems while trying to make the movie fit the modern times, they cutout or changed certain things about characters, theme, and symbols that caused it to be slight different from the book. The fact is that no matter how well the movie covers the book, there will always be some noticeable difference, as Fitzgerald’s words from the book paint’s a vivid picture of the scenes, that it’s come to life in the mind of its reader. Therefore, even with a perfect design, cast, and performance, any movie version can only disappoint. One of the biggest difference can be seen in the theme representation of the American Dream. While the movie shows the achievement of the American dream, the book shows its failure.
The era of postmodernism breaks through, or rather wishes to destroy any mainstream elements which were used in the modern era. Where modernism looked towards progress and predictable solutions, postmodernism did just the opposite. When speaking of the term postmodernism and film, films usually leave the audience unsettled through its fragmented, ironic and disjointed narrative. Many other characteristics such as the blurring of boundaries between truth and fiction, and the manipulation of time and space are elements used in postmodern film. Postmodern film, putting the focus on the liminal space1.
Film is inextricably intertwined in today’s culture, both as a means and as an outcome.

Not every movie producer
I’m not a fan of Ghostbusters or Star Wars. I don’t enjoy their movies. Did you feel your blood and mind automatically react to the opinion without thinking? Did I trigger your defense mechanisms to defend these movies and block out your other mental processes from the raw emotion I brought out of you from this statement? Using these emotional trips is the first step in getting your attention to a story or rumor.
Other than the blunt shock factor of murdering a man in front of a crowd to draw the audience in, this scene doesn’t particularly have any realistic or unique qualities. As White states in his review, “The measure of Lynch’s failing can be taken by the triviality and meaninglessness of the pop references throughout Wild at Heart. It’s a postmodern world Lula and Sailor inhabit, all right--decentered and disgustingly fake” (14). This scene, like most others in the film, lacks any realistic aspects of American culture; it relies only on an in-your-face excitement and symbols of pop culture that may grab the viewer’s attention, but ultimately falls short of being meaningful. Sailor’s Elvis-impersonating character and the wistful, over the top passion between him and Lula are not enough to symbolize American culture, as they are intended.
Mark twain demolished coopers romanticism in his novels. Cooper’s tone was also criticized as being reactionary, romantic and pedagogical in tone. Sydney Krause States that all of the harsh criticism and the bad talk about Cooper is not the words of a person with good judgment. She is not saying that Mark is wrong, but that he is over stressing the criticism and even though she does agree with him in some ways Cooper is still an amazing writer (“James”). John McWilliams also believes that Mark twain‘s attack on Cooper is not justified.
Poe, like all other romantics believed that one of the major aspects of beauty lay in strangeness. His characters were gloomy and they remained aloof from the society. In fact Poe himself was a loner and had less to do with the society. Poe was never accepted in his society as he was the son of travelling actors, Mr. And Mrs. Poe. The polite society of the 19th century America was very much against the professional actors and hence they did not have much respect in the society.
Creon almost seemed like he wanted Haimon to be angry so he put Antigone in the vault. He couldn’t see that Haemon was in love and Antigone was just trying to honor the dead because of his hubris. Creon also says, “My own blind heart has brought me from darkness to final darkness.” This shows he knows he didn’t use his intelligence to solve his problems. He was already heading the wrong direction with his pride and it finally was too much. Creon’s hubris has not let him effectively deal with his
