You would want your death to be something worth dying for and not something you already know is going to happen. In the movie people look at your DNA to see what job you can or cannot have, this is wrong because the job that you would want says that you cannot have that job because your DNA isnt eligible. People in the movie "GATTACA" tell what can or cannot do. They tell you something and do everything to make sure that they are okay and they have a job.
At the end of the story Robert observes, “He is buried in the cemetery out back. Years have passed-we are living in the future, and it's turned out differently from what we'd planned” (Cunningham 242). After his brother’s death Robert is able to come to the conclusion that not everything is fun and games because every action has consequences. His big brother took many risks that eventually caught up with him, leading him to his death. Robert is left alone with the responsibility of taking care of his parents who are devastated by the loss of their first born.
Teddy promises to assist Shelby on searching the attacker while actually he just wants to use Shelby to kill the drug dealers. Gradually Shelby discloses Teddy’s attempts and is going to kill him. As a matter of fact, Shelby has already killed the attacker at the beginning but fails to remember that, resulting in his unrelenting efforts on searching that guy and sufferings from the misery of losing his wife again and again. To make sense of the story and appreciate the artistic wisdom of the film, we have to analyze the main actor’s problem of memory and his personal identity. Furthermore, we can mirror ourselves through analysis of personal identity of the main character in the film.
Finding Wyatts book makes Willa and him closer friends. Willa almost loses it when she finds out Reed, her stepfather 's assistant is the Hollywood killer when she is being kept in custody by him. She ends up finding a way to get lose and some help. That’s when Jonathan
He believed that drinking his victims saliva and burying their body's so that their heads faced his house would actually give him power. Ahmad had developmental problems around his early adulthood or Erikson's stage 6, because that was around the time his father died. The death of his father is what most likely triggered him to start acting out, because he was very close with his father when he was younger. This is also why he felt the need to take his father's advice during his hallucination of him telling Ahmed to kill all those women, because he was motivated to not let him down and wanted to make him proud. When comparing Ahmed to Freud's theory, he uses his Id to make decisions, because he was only thinking about his needs of gaining power and pleasing his father, rather than thinking about what would be
Sophocles also shows the consequences of actions throughout the whole play, to even include the messenger fearful for his life bringing the message of sighting the buried body, but if he didn’t carry the message when he tells Creon ‘I can suffer nothing more than what is in my fate’. Creon had to deal with the consequences of his actions after entombing Antigone, his son’s wife to be, his son committing suicide to be with his wife in the afterlife and then Creon’s own wife also killing herself out of anguish of the death of her second son. Sophocles wanted to show, regardless of whether you believe in the archaic gods, monotheism, or even if you believe that the rules laid down by the king of the city should be the only rules your actions in this life will always have consequences. As Oliver Taplin notes in his book Greek Tragedy in action, ‘great drama makes universals concrete, and portrays the human condition through the voice and the actions of the human
So it is acceptable to be different, people will like you for you. Teenagers should watch this movie and read this book because this is what our world may look like in the future. Technology is steadily growing and being introduced to the variety of readings and movies will prepare us and make us think critically about our world around us. Before reading A Brave New World I did not know that any of this was possible and it made me think about how much control society has over us, and the Black Mirror made me realize that this actually occurs everyday in our society. We will soon be adults in this world and it will teach us how to better prepare for the future, because as of now our society is becoming unacceptable to be an
Also, he was a successful businessman in the retailing of women and mens clothing thus explaining why he wanted his son to have a profession such as becoming a lawyer, due to the high degree of respect the job entails. (“Franz Kafka (1883-1924)”) His father would express how little fond he was of Kafka 's interest in literature rather than law by his low tolerance and short temper. Kafka believed that most of his struggles related to his romance and other personal obstacles were caused by the strain of the complicated relationship between him and his father. As he showed it in his book through his boss, which Gregor was scared of because of how badly he treated him and how he was an overbearing figure that could manipulate and affect someone just because of the power that they have over them.
Now if that person picked up the trash because its their job or their doing community service; that wouldn’t be the same thing. This means they are doing it for a specific reason, which would get them paid or out of loosing their liens from a DUI. When a person does something without expecting a consequence or any emotional feeling, it is also acting out of sense of duty. For example, if guy holds the door open for a pretty girl and no one else, he is just trying to impress that one girl. He is trying to get her to like him by pretending to be gentlemen.
I believe the book Ender’s Game is more exceptional than the film because of the development of characters and events that happens in the book, and the hardship Ender faces to become a great leader against the buggers. Throughout the story of Ender’s Game, Ender is constantly being isolated by Colonel Graff in order for Ender to think, make decisions, and respond to situations by himself. This isolation is to prepare Ender to become a great leader in battle. In the story, Graff orders to have Ender’s monitor taken out to observe how Ender responds to mistreatment from bullies.

The essay The Mystery of being in Gattaca by Dmetri Kakmi published in Issue 35 Australian Screen Education discusses the significance of Gattaca’s perfect society and why it would not work in our society. The article begins with the reason why we have insurances for unpredictable situations. In Gattaca’s caste system there is no need for insurance, because they are creating test-tube babies which have no diseases or imperfections. These are the valid humans in the movie, and on the other hand, there are in-valids who have physical or mental disabilities. The paper goes on to give specifics about Jerome who commits suicide and the director who is a murderer, but they were supposed to be perfect valids.
