Film analysis of Casablanca (1942) One of the most debated topics in recent history questions if Casablanca is the best film of all time. The film was originally released in New York in late 1942, and then nationally in early 1943. Given the time period and the plot, many found this film to be controversial, yet informative, as the movie follows the story of a group of refugees during World War II. With any discussion, criteria must be set to determine this answer. In this particular review, I will discuss why I believe Casablanca is the greatest film of all time and why.
Relationships between Romeo, Juliet and the Friar are some of the most potent and detailed in Romeo and Juliet. The story would be completely different without them. Another way that fate has contributed to the overall depth and genius of this story, is how the reader interprets the word. Fate also means the end or death of someone, and Romeo and Juliet’s fate has forever changed the lives of the Montagues and Capulets, disintegrating their rivalry. Change is one of the big themes in Romeo and Juliet, and fate plays right into that theme making it very noticeable and potent.
The dialogue and lyrics are straightforward and full of ironic elements, which bring a lot of fun to enjoy. The transition from lines into a song is pretty smooth. For example, when Shrek is “hurt” by what Fiona says and his anger reaches a climax, he naturally starts to sing to express his emotion. In addition, the music, which embraces several styles such as pop, rock and jazz, also add dynamics into the show. So in sum, the writing of the show is appealing.
The comedy wanders around the difficulties and ironies of love as it provides a very accurate description of a relatively common situation that many people experience. Shakespeare excelled in delivering a piece that is comedic, relatable and unpredictable in its essence. As I progress through this essay, I will analyze one of its’ major themes, which is the controversy of love and how it involves some of the characters in the story. Love is often called the most beautiful sentiment a human can ever feel, yet, very often it can cause so much pain and despair, causing it to be very controversial and
The dialog is exceedingly significant to the overall plot as it establishes Olivia 's love for 'Cesario ' and an inkling to Cesario 's loyalty and love for Orsino. Viola 's description of what she would do if she loved Olivia as Orsino does attracts Olivia attention and affection. Viola 's lines to Olivia of making "a willow cabin" (1.5.271) at the gate and writing songs of "contemned love" (1.5.273) to sing them "in the dead of night" (1.5.274) conveys an agonizingly desperate love that should be pitied. She wants Olivia to know that the extent of Olivia 's
Boss’s love is so grand; he is so infatuated that it is embarrassing. Boss starts the poem with, “grand…would you mind terribly, my groundling…” He identifies his lover his groundling. Although, in many contexts this might be offensive, perhaps it is his love language. One definition of groundling claims it is a theater goer that sits in the pit below the stage. Perhaps his love is so grand it’s like a musical or play that he is putting on just for her.
In all most every dialogue between Mia and Sebastian there is a conflict, a misunderstanding between them. Therefore, the writer plays with our emotions by giving us pretty musical relationship and then cold-hearted miscommunication between them. The screenplay’s main objective is to see how both, Mia and Sebastian, believe in reaching their dreams. The writer wants us to connect with them through romance, yet that’s not the point the screenplay is trying to address. In page 94 of the screenplay, we can see a montage of their lives together.
The Dark Side of Hollywood “Crazy Sunday” by F. Scott Fitzgerald was published in 1932. Fitzgerald is most known for his novels, in particular his novel The Great Gatsby. He is most known for his use of a lot of symbolism, his incorporation of events of his own life, and his common themes such as a poor boy falls in love with a rich girl and the American Dream. The autobiographical part of “Crazy Sunday” is how he moved to Hollywood, did some screenwriting, and once went to a big Hollywood party where he made fun of a movie producer. Fitzgerald mostly writes about the 1920’s and the Jazz Age.
The mood shifts from "It 's funny… It 's very funny. And it 's a lot of fun, too, to be in love" to "I think [love] it 's hell on earth" (Hemingway 35). Within this quote the topics of war and relationship are simultaneously taking place, Jake, who is handicapped, has an internal war going on that prevents him from pursing a relationship with Brett. Not only did the war affect him physically but likewise mentally, these flashbacks keep him awake and lead to sleepless nights and inexpressible personal tortures. All things considered the constant ideas of war and relationships are spread throughout both readings in various ways and all play a crucial role within not only the plot but character development.
Many of his poems used a magnificent rhyme and rhythm pattern that captures the audience in a way that singing a song does in the modern world. In his poem “Paul Revere’s Ride” he uses different elements to pull in the reader. Symbolism is mostly noted in this poem, and in the poem says “The fate of a nation was riding that night" this pushes the American audience into thinking that they too are fighting in the war. Longfellow creates this dynamic setting by using every American’s inner patriotism to get the reader to engage deeper into the story. Further in this story you read “And the spark struck out by that steed, in his flight”, giving a great example of metaphor.
