The film, Reel Injun reveals a distortion of the way Hollywood sees Native American life through comedy and the real way Native Americans live which changes according to the current times. Neil Diamond sets out on a journey across America to figure out where the incorrect image of Natives arose from, all signs pointing towards Hollywood. Dozens of films recreate the way Americans believe Natives live as savages and wear costumes and decorated headpieces with feathers, but Hollywood does not show the true spiritual side and the meaning of why they live the way they do as true to their own culture and assimilated to the American culture as well. US history negatively affects Native American live which lead to the image of Natives to be clouded by imagination through film, changed the way Natives viewed themselves and expect to live, and misshaped the view we now have for Natives. Over the course of the film, clips of many western movies play which show parts of Native Americans shown as the enemies of the Americans.
Do you see people having courage in their society? Harper Lee puts courage as a central idea of To Kill a Mockingbird just as courage is a central idea in The Giver and if you have read the book then you would know that Jonas uses his courage to change society.

If you haven 't read To Kill a Mockingbird then you have to know it is a fictional story about a girl named Scout who grew up in the 1930’s when segregation was all over America. I believe that Harper Lee adds courage as a key component of the overall To Kill a Mockingbird story because courage can change a whole society as she proves in her book.

What does it mean for something to be self-reflexive? In film terms, it means that the film has a varying level of self-awareness. This film will often attempt to make the audience aware of the film creation process, taking the viewer sometime by surprise as they are yanked directly from the world the movie had started to construct. There are several movies across the expanse of genre that attempt to pull of this sense of self-reference that range anywhere from Kelly and Donen’s Singing in the Rain (1952) to Jones and Gilliam’s Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975). However, as time marches on and the “superhero” genre gains more and more popularity from the film-viewing public, a new face has taken the reigns of self-reflexive films and has completely run away from them.

86) that reinforces male dominance and female submission. As a young girl, these movies shaped my thoughts in a way that made me believe I needed a man to rescue me, protect me, make me feel beautiful and complete me. Vickery (2009) states that “romantic scripts such as ‘prince charming’ and ‘waiting for the one’ are carefully embedded within so many mediated scripts of sexuality” (p. 50).
