Watching The Trouble with Evan was very difficult. There were so many things this family could have done to make things better, but every time they tried they just kept falling into their own ways. Insecure disorganized attachment was quite apparent between him and both of his parents. His parents had the tendency to verbally abuse him quite a bit, yelling things that most people would never imagine yelling at their child. Other times it seemed the mother would be frightened of Evan and his behavior. One of the main things that really points to it being disorganized attachment is the fact that both parents verbally abuse him. At one point in this documentary his father even blows cigarette smoke in his face to try and get his point across. …show more content…

Moore also had an abundance of psychological factors influencing him. He was raised in a single parent household. His father (Bernard) was absent for most of his life, and the three times that Mr. Moore encountered his father, Bernard was drunk and did not know who Wes was nor did he care. “Findings indicated that boys and those from single-parent families engaged in the highest rates of problem behavior” (Griffin et al., 2000). His mother, Mary, worked in order to support the two of them, and as a result, Mr. Moore was often left unsupervised.
Throughout “Stories We Tell” there are many questions and uncertainties pertaining the truth behind Sarah Polley’s biological father, and the affairs that her mother Diane may have been involved in. As we get deeper in the story we found out there have been multiple accusations of Diane being with other guys during her unfaithful marriage with Michael. The real question is who is the creator of this documentaries, Sarah Polley’s, biological father and why did Diane hide such a colossal secret from her family? From the dinner table jokes of Sarah being adopted, to the friends views of Diane 's affairs, there should have been more certainty from an earlier time to who her father

This leads to a lot arguments and debates with her dad; it is like they are rivals trying to prove who is right and wrong. This differs from Manning’s issue of trying to understand his dad.
The film 13th directed by Ava DuVernay targets an intended audience of the Media and the three branches of the United States government with an emphasis that mass incarceration is an extension of slavery. It is intended to inform viewers about the criminalization of African Americans and the United States prison boom. 13th uses rhetorical devices in its claim to persuade the viewers by using exemplum in the opening seconds of the film. President Barack Obama presents statistics, saying “the United States is home to 5% of the world’s population but is home to 25% of the world’s prisoners.” Also the film uses a hyperbole in talking about the movie Birth of a Nation produced in 1915 which portrays a black man as a violent savage who will kill white women.

O Brother Where Art Thou? is a film that will take you on a perilous journey with Ulysses Everett McGill and his simpleminded cohorts. This film may be set amidst the early 1930’s Great Depression era, but it still has a Homer’s Odyssey feel to it.

Family is one of the most important parts of life growing up. A strong family is what growing children need to be successful and have a bright future. Growing up in a family that is weak, does not have strong family ties and is violent leads to problems for the children and the parents, which is seen in Hillbilly Elegy and Evicted. Violence in families can affect children greatly, it can lead to second generations of poor communication between spouses and can be overall unhealthy for those living in that environment. J.D. Vance is immensely affected by his mother 's violent outbursts and multiple relationships.
One of the best usage of sound design as a tool of storytelling has to be in the first sequence of The Exorcist. As a horror movie, which as a genre builds itself on the vicarious experience it provides, uses more complex patterns of sound design templates to enhance the adventure of watching the movie. Throughout the first scene, Ken Nagle lays what the audience will be the experiencing through the duration of the movie with sound design; the duel between good and evil. The Exorcist’s first sequence, the audience can hear the digging sound of the workers, which resembles the heart pounding.
But now his father was not showing sympathy by the way he reacted to the was his son walked into the room of his parents screaming at the top of his lungs. His father shouting at him to get him to notice his mistake then ripped the tape out of his head with anger, pulling 60 hairs out of his scalp. And after all of that, he decided to make the situation worse to start disciplining his son by hitting. This to me shows how none of the charters in the story show sympathy and are all selfish. If I was in the father 's son shows being screamed at and also being hurt I would feel desperate, hopeless, but jealous.

In 2015, HBO aired a six-part, true crime documentary series titled, The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst. Writer and director, Andrew Jarecki, examined the details of three crimes associated with Durst, including the disappearance of Durst’s first wife Kathy, the murder of his dear friend, Susan, and the murder and dismemberment of his neighbor, Morris Black. While the mini-series was met with acclaim, many – including myself – criticize The Jinx for its storytelling approach. The series seemingly blurs the lines of storytelling – for entertainment purposes – and journalism; raising many questions regarding ethics. Initially, Durst approached Jarecki regarding an interview after he saw All Good Things, a film Jarecki had released
