However, when they see Othello’s rash reaction to the handkerchief in the ownership of Cassio, the audience begins to ridicule Othello and other characters who have also succumbed to Iago’s lies. The chicanery and elaborate scheme of IAGO enabled him to outsmart his
Fight Club, starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, was directed by David Fincher and made in 1999. The two scenes analyzed in this paper will show that the male body is used as a commodity and therefore falls into a Marxist theory. At the same time, the male body becomes the object of the masculine gaze and can be analyzed using a psychoanalytic tool. The Narrator initiates a sexual desire for his alter ego's body, and therefore for himself. Fight Club reveals, through a Marxist-psychoanalytic reading, that the Narrator has homoerotic tendencies, is narcissistic, and unstable both mentally and physically.
This animalistic imagery shows that not only is Othello being dehumanized by Iago, but Desdemona is as well. Since both characters are not viewed as human to Iago, it shows that he is more willing to embark on manipulative acts upon them. His detachment towards the characters then drives him to do sinister deeds on to them, ultimately causing his downfall. Emilia, Iago’s own wife is another character to which he is detached from. In Act Five, scene two, Iago kills his wife for telling
The concept of psychopaths and sociopaths in Western society and culture is not clearly defined, and covers a great range of character, attitudes and behavior. This range includes everything from someone who is introverted and not socially adept to mass murderers and cannibals. Characters of psychopaths in early films were often created without a real understanding of psychopathic personalities. They were often portrayed as caricatures, being emotionally unstable, sadistic, sexually compulsive and with an urge to engage in random violence, murders, and destruction. This was often accompanied by bizarre mannerisms, such as giggling, laughing, or facial tics, often creating famous but unreal characters.
Villains often play a vital role in contrasting the protagonists, which brings upon sympathy towards the protagonists. In The Stranger by Albert Camus, society directly criticizes Meursault 's actions and beliefs, evoking Meursault 's sadness in the story. While in The Meursault Investigation, Merault is the antagonist of the story because he kills Musa, Harun’s brother. Meursault indirectly provokes Harun’s anger and fuels his ambition for his actions. Both stories present villains differently, where society is directly criticizing Meursault’s beliefs and actions in The Stranger while Meursault is indirectly hurting Harun in The Meursault Investigation.
ATTWN and Saw prove that humans actions have consequences. There are several similarities but one similarity between ATTWN and Saw is they both show manipulation. Both storylines share the idea of a mastermind who manipulates the other characters.

Satire has tremendous power. People feel frustrated and annoyed when others directly criticize them. Nevertheless, satire is much more terrifying because it is a type of implicit criticism. In the meantime, satire can also be a thought-provoking humor which may make people laugh at first, but after they understand the underlying meaning of the satire, the laugh will be full of tears. This paper will demonstrate how authors use the language of satire to expose and criticize social issues in the society.

William Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew” has had many art forms based off of it, for insistence “10 Things I hate about you”, directed by Gil Junger is one of them. While the plot, characters, and some themes are similar there are also many differences between the stories, allowing the audience to interpret the stories differently. The main characters in both “The Taming of the Shrew” and “10 things i hate about you” are very similar, yet so different. Katherine, known as Kat in “10 Things I hate about you”, is short-tempered with a shrewish type behaviour. Katherine is seen as abusive and mean in both stories, but when taking a closer look most of her behavioural issues seem to stem from her insecurities.
This essay will be discussing the work of Luis Buñuel, one of the most famous art cinema directors. One of Buñuel’s most successful works was; ‘The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie’. Buñuel’s hatred for the bourgeoisie is very clearly shown throughout this film with the characters experiencing nightmarish dreams and constantly being interrupted before they sit down for food. Each character within the film represents something that Buñuel disliked about the upper class in society such as drugs, money, and adultery and so on. Buñuel did not want society to become like the aristocracy in society.
