Do you ever tire? God, look at you, iron is what you are made of. Here we all are, half dead with weariness falling asleep over the cars and you say no landing-no firm island earth where we could make a quiet supper”(pg;839 L162-168). Many storms came and went so instead of wanting to stay there for two days, they stayed for two months.

The mystery of who Gatsby was pervaded more clearly through the beginning of the older version of the
People will always be biased from their own experiences. Especially in today's time people are racist, angry, and just do not want to take time out of their everyday lives for jury duty.

On the other hand, Selma is more complex and does not tell us about life Martin Luther King, but it is about the 1965 Selma to Montgomery voting rights marches, in which was King involved. The last film Mississippi Burning, shot in 1988 and directed by Alan Parker, is a story based on the real FBI investigation of three murders of civil rights workers-
