Although I want to say the movie was better just because Leonardo Decaprio was in it. In my honest opinion, I don’t know why Decaprio won an Oscar for this movie rather than all the other amazing movies that he’s previously acted in, such as Titanic, or the Aviator. His acting is always great, but I think he won the Oscar for the sake of winning it, because it was due time. He was nominated many times before, but for some reason failed to win.

We see the use of pace when he dissects the interaction between the women carrying on a conversation about apples and dinner plans during his film. While in previous paragraphs, Lopate’s main focus is his sequential approach to chatty moviegoers, by using the story about the women, he is able to transition to an observance of occurrences that he encounters in the movie setting. In the final paragraphs, Lopate seems to have a moment of aggrandizement, where he synthesizes that “to refuse solitude is to violate the social contract that should be written on each ticket stub.” Finally, he attributes the people 's talkative tendencies to a fear of solitude, and an erosion to what it means to be a member of the public.
