As the movie poster from Citizen Kane says, "Everybody 's talking about it, It 's terrific!" Though, what exactly is it that makes Citizen Kane the best movie of all time? Many, such as the New York Times on its debut in 1941, have acknowledged that "Citizen Kane was "one of the great (if not the greatest) motion pictures of all time" (qtd. in Brown). The movie is even in many top movie lists in rather high-ranking positions. The story is about a reporter trying to figure out just what the word "rosebud" meant to Kane, as it shows many flashbacks to Kane 's life as well.
Although some defender argues that people do not judge a race by the things they see in a movie, I couldn’t disagree more. A movie or a TV show gives these certain characters a voice, and if they themselves are accepting the negative things, then others will. In that situation it causes fear. I strongly believe the entertainment industry uses race and ethnicity as a leverage for more
This film so impressive on many levels, from the very beginning to the shocking ending, this is a filmmaker’s delight, and visually stimulating for the audiences. Storywise, once you get through the convoluted plot, there comes a greater impact, a stunning cinematic masterpiece from one of America‘s greatest directors, Orson Welles, directing one of his last Hollywood films. Recapturing the marvel and talent displayed by Welles’ best and early film, the infamous Citizen Kane (1941) made almost twenty years before. Welles skillfully weaves the camera and actors through a maze of shadows, sounds, and light. The opening sequence of Touch of Evil (1958) is magnificently done, orchestrated in a clever, artistic crane shot, that follows the action
A famous writer named Rockwell saw consumerism not to be working against Americans but for it. Even using it as a way of propaganda by saying it could “equate consumerism with patriotism,” and therefore help to better America (Palmore, Haley M). Rockwell states “To be against commerce is to be against life itself”, In other words, if someone was completely against consumerism then there would be no room for the ideas of improvement in the country (In Defense of Consumerism). While consuming books are also seen as consuming knowledge, this isn’t always the case and can be twisted in many ways simply for a suppliers benefit, rather than the benefits a reader may get.
No one in our modern society speaks the way they did in Elizabethan times, so modern audiences watching play productions of Shakespeare’s work will most likely not comprehend or enjoy the actual play because the language acts as a barrier. But the many aspects of film can help break down that barrier. With the help of cinematography and special effects, directors like Baz Luhrmann can provide modern audiences with an easy and in-depth understanding of the play that they may not have cared about learning in high school. Additionally, appropriations can help introduce modern audiences to Shakespeare’s original plays. Some audiences may enjoy movies like Warm Bodies and feel inclined to read Romeo and Juliet after.
Thomas Nagel brings up the point that many people have an “natural conception of the distinction between fighting clean and fighting dirty” (Nagel 125). This distinction extends to war as well. It is intuitive that during wartime, warring parties should not be able to go to extreme lengths to further their cause. Though morality does shift during wartime, there are certain boundaries that cannot be crossed by the groups at war. What exactly these boundaries are, and how to enforce them, is a source of controversy.
In the early 1900’s European countries began competing and with that they were also building strong army’s and navy’s. After a while, the United States got involved and were in need of the people’s support. It took convincing but once people got on board with the idea of going to war, war fever in the United States was at an all-time high. The United Nations had not yet been established which meant conflicts were not getting resolved. This was unlike anything the U.S. had done before.
Jack Massey Makenna Green Comp 1 7/13/2016 “The Whites Of Their Eyes” In The Whites Of Their Eyes Stuart Hall goes on to talk about certain race constructiveness in the media. The article then begins to talk about how the media poses a representation of multiple ideologies, and how these ideologies define race.

Films and media have been a source of entertainment since the 1800s. Everyone has some exposure of media through news and entertainment, and we see how people perceive others around us. Some concepts, a most prominent one, coined “whitewashing”, is heavily in films and develops heavy prejudice towards other races aside from the more dominant white population. Whitewashing began during the early development of films across the United States, the castings of white actors and actresses gaining controversy and were heavily criticized. Whitewashing was considered offensive to others, because of the amount of it that was done during those times.
Propaganda In Society “A widely held belief is that propaganda is a cancer on the body politic, which manipulates our thoughts and actions and should be avoided at all costs” (Welch 1). This quote is showing how the are good things going on and people are not seeing the bad things happening at the same time. Propaganda is a persuasion technique that has been used during a time of war as a way to persuade young men to join the war efforts. During the time of the Civil War many men and boys joined the war to help out with fighting. Some of the people who joined the war, joined because they only saw the glorious side through the use of propaganda, and were not exposed to the realities of war.
Propaganda can encourage citizens to help out with the armed forces. It also caused women to work at factories to help make things essential for the army. Some of the main types of of propaganda are posters and movies. The most popular type of propaganda were posters because they are easy to place around the area. Propaganda encouraged more racism, and also helped mobilize the nation.
