The techniques have a variety of purposes, such as demonstrating Teddy’s power (or lack thereof) and his feelings. A low angle shot near the beginning of the film establishes Teddy’s supposed dominance and power on the island. After searching the room of the missing patient Rachel Solando we see Teddy keeping a piece of paper for evidence while Dr Cawley, the psychiatrist running the asylum, is situated behind him, giving the impression of less control.

It is expected that medical practitioners should abide by these code of medical ethics, it is an obligation on the part of medical practitioner to fulfill certain rights and expectations of the patients. But there is fast spreading professional misconduct amongst the medical practitioners. The unethical practice has gone to a level where the basic purpose of medial profession i.e. service to humanity fails.

Although he unites with the nature, he is not “wholly involved in Nature”, and “[he knows himself] as a human entity” (180). That is, Thoreau harmonizes with the nature and becomes a part of the nature; however, he does not lose his independence. He wants to improve himself as a human, and the unification helps him to do it. Thoreau believes that the nature is basically higher existence than human. It has purity, nobility and freshness.

Introduction Existentialist is a philosophical view that focus on reality and what is real against what is imaginary. In this school of thought philosophical views are born with more focus about humans and their existence in comparison to things that might not exist or have never been proved scientifically to exist like ghost and spirits. Existentialism believes in the right to choose and this freedom of choice leads to reality of choosing something that exist. Finding the real meaning to our life is part of existentialism. With this initial introduction on existentialism we move and analyse its major strengths and weaknesses in the next few sections followed by what 's appealing and discouraging about Sartre 's point of view about existentialism.
Dranitsin, the restraint leads to low morale in the internal order of hospital, but "to give freedom for the patient within the institution, treat him as a human being and fulfill his desires is actually the true humanity, which would not at all be disturbed by the fact that, if necessary, a strait waistcoat could be applied" (Dranitsin 1887, c. 437). Another psychiatrist from St. Petersburg, P. Y. Rosenbach supposed that abandoning physical violence would undoubtedly be an ideal, which all the psychiatrists should strain after. However, he was surprised by "the claim for the absolute deployment of the non-restraint, exposed by a number of psychiatrists, mostly in Western Europe, as an obligatory clause for a model of a psychiatric institution" (Rosenbach 1887, p. 438). Based on his observations of the foreign experience of psychiatric hospitals in Berlin and London, the author wondered what was better on this model: “The absence of any confinement, but at the same time locking the wild half-naked patients into small isolated rooms with stone floors, covered with decomposed urine?" (Rosenbach 1887, c. 438).
