We can learn in the movies effects of cross-cultural risk and how people manage to negotiate. We can learn and follow up certain country risks- also known as political and economical risks that some certain countries encounter nowadays. Some scenes can create stereotypes that can affect managerial tasks, company activities in a way that they are unconsciously create a fixed thought in our mind about various ethnicities, countries, traits and etc.. In my opinion watching films cannot be an effective way of learning how to do business abroad because movies are a representation of ones thought or impression of how certain meetings and events are done and therefore they could contain stereotypes, cultural metaphore, and
Comparison of Vigne’s Film Version with Davis’s Interpretation of the Martin Guerre Episode It is very interesting to note that Martin Guerre’s scandal represents a complicated enigma, especially in the sixteenth-century as it has been said “truth is stranger than fiction”. Therefore, this case grabs many artists’ and historians’ attention to reflect it into literature and historical works. Many works have been written to describe this incident, including but not restricted to Davie’s book and Vigne’s movie, the two works will be examined in this research; they are based on a famous case of the identity theft that took place in the sixteenth-century, France. The film was produced in 1982 under the title Le Retour de Martin Guerre
Segal vehemently disagrees with the movie, saying that ““Stonewall” is uninterested in any history that doesn’t revolve around its white male, stereotypically attractive protagonist.” (Segal 2015). Basically, the Hollywood production of Stonewall was historically inaccurate for the price of the deep embedded racism within their company, and the erasure of the transwomen of color who had lead LGBT to their liberation were ignored. Marsha P. Johnson had been the one to throw the first brick. In David Carter’s book, Stonewall, he agrees saying that Johnson “really started it” on the in initial night of the first protests. Not only Marsha had been erased, her friend and fellow trans activist, Sylvia Rivera had worked beside
The use of censorship is significant in the novel, which is due to the government's role in people’s . As a way the government censors what they feel is not acceptable, they burn books which is illegal to own, to remove them, if any person such as the old lady that will not give their books, they are killed with the books that are burned. Uses of censorship in the novel prevented many people to have the different mindsets in that society, which reinforce the government's role in the way people perceive their information. To prove the concept, a character from “Fahrenheit 451”, Captain Beatty asserts, “We must all be alike. Not everyone born free and equal, as the Constitution says, but everyone made, equal.

Sanya Sethi Do the benefits of decriminalizing drugs outweigh the disadvantages? 2000 words Do the benefits of decriminalizing drugs outweigh the disadvantages? By Sanya Sethi Introduction ‘I’m a recovering drug addict and know that drug addiction is an illness, it’s a disease, so by criminalizing that you criminalize a huge percentage of the population. You malign them and stigmatize them, you generate more crime, you create a criminal culture, and speaking from the perspective of a sufferer it’s simply not helpful’. (Russell Brands) We have fought a long and hard war against drugs for decades now, but we still have not been able to win the battle, and if Russell Brands is to believed, the solutions we are adopting
Author Alex Leptos interviewed many different people at big film companies about the issue of too many white people in Hollywood movies, and he says that, “Another thing is the issue of modern Hollywood fearing that casting a lesser-known, non-white actor may attract less viewers and therefore bring less profit.”(Leptos) This quote means that if you put lesser known actors in a movie it may now get as much viewership. So they sometimes cast them because known white people are gonna to get more viewership than a not-known colored person. This means that the film company will get more money if they cast a well known actor. For example, in the film, Ghost in the Shell, Scarlett Johansson got the part instead of a Japanese actor. The situation made lots of headlines, leading to more publicity for the movie, and they have Scarlett Johansson, who is a very well respected actor, which people may go see the movie just because she is in it.
Much like the 70s, although the movie was a realistic depiction of what could happen if stockbrokers grew to become too ambitious and greedy, it still failed to cause a substantial change on the target audience (stockbrokers) went about their business. While sequel was released in 2010, Variety Magazine made a comment about the original film which sums it up pretty well, it reads, “intended as a cautionary tale on the pitfalls of unchecked ambition and greed, Stone's 1987 original instead had the effect of turning Douglas' hugely charismatic (and Oscar-winning) villain into a household name and boardroom icon -- an inspiration to the very power players and Wall Street wannabes for whom he set such a terrible example.” Taking into consideration that this quote does imply change, the impact it had was still very minimal. It may be that the movie gave inspiration to aspiring businessmen, but the movie did not cause change, it
For the past decade, democracies have been idealized as the superior political system, especially by the Western world and therefore lack ambition to improve. Since the tensions between non-democratic and democratic states have disappeared after the fall of most communist countries, the “West” and democracy was perceived as the superior, “winning” ideology. In my opinion, this perception has led to an irrational respect as well as blind obedience to political leaders. Therefore free hand is given to democratic states and their leaders as they find world-wide support. Whistle-blowers, leaking secret information about unethical actions of governments and organizations, are modern “institutions” setting necessary limits to the actions of political actors in the western world.
However, instead of promoting illicit drug use, the show actually portrays the use of illicit drug usage in a negative way. It sets a precedent for cop shows to follow suit in the negative portrayal in the use of illicit drugs. However, as media continues to evolve, the contents we see on television and the cinema have evolved too. Television and movie producers today are faced with intense competition to produce box office hits to generate the most possible income. Responsible media reporting are often replaced by what the audiences want to see instead of what the audience should see.
