There are countless songs in the world that people listen to, but do not understand. Even if they hear the song on the radio every morning, or it is the number one song on their playlist, they may not truly comprehend the song unless they carefully listen to the lyrics. “Billie Jean” is an example; thousands of people around the world dance to the song in parties and listen to it in the car, but don’t know what the performer is singing about. “Billie Jean” is a song about a man who is accused of having a child with a woman.

During the opening scene in Kevin Spacey’s Acting MasterClass, you see him doing impressions creating humor and at the same time telling the audience how making his mother laugh was how he got started to long path of acting. As you progress through the ad he is commentating on the points of acting with inspirational music captivating the audience to make them listen to express oneself and ideas that many actors go through. When we look at Werner Herzog’s Filmmaking MasterClass ad, we see similarities in the theme for inspiration using music, but also shows his emotions to those he has taught. In the background you would see old films and how he ties that with the idea that film is like treasure. To the end he almost riles up the audience in a climax of words that drive many filmmakers to the beauty of film, capturing moments through a lens to express to the whole

The music chosen by Gil Junger is molded on the narrative themes. For example he manages to share his vision of Kat through the use of two songs at the beginning of the movie. As a car appears at the beginning of the film and the teenage girls in it start to sing along to the song “One Week” by the Pop/Rock band Barenaked Ladies, which is all male bad, whilst Kat listens to “Bad Reputation” by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. By using this strategy, Junger managed to show the audience Kat`s character and also, the contrast that is between being popular and unpopular. The use of Joan Jett and the red vintage sports car that Kat drives helps the audience understand just how much she cares about how other perceive her and the power that others might

Furthermore, both composers demonstrate a profound transformation of self as a ramification of the implementation of these renewed perspectives. In The Motorcycle Diaries, Guevara’s use of diary entries which segue linearly, chronicles the effects that his continued exposure to the widespread poverty had on his burgeoning social conscience and ideological awareness as it highlights the significant transformation from the laid-back youth who was “feeling uneasy…because…(he) was particularly jaded with medical school, hospitals and exams” to the powerful revolutionary who had become aware of the corruption in his society, evident in use of epistolary when he relays his discoveries to his mother, “ There is more repression of individual freedom…The atmosphere is tense and it seems a revolution may be brewing”. With growing socialist sensibilities, Guevara’s first-hand experiences of the US backed political oppression of the communists crystallised his desire to transform himself into a “sacred space within which the bestial howl of the proletariat can resound.” His animalistic imagery powerfully signifies his radicalised self-perception as the embodiment of the universal Marxist struggle against capitalism and his dedication to an improved future for the Latin American proletariat, thus indicating a profound transformation of identity and resolve. In contrast to Guevara’s linear progressions, it is the significant contrasts between the opening and ending of the film which

American novelist and poet Ernest Hemingway’s social commentary about parental pressures leading to mental illnesses, is an issue impacting youth today which demands our attention and greater community awareness. His illustrious poem Advice to a Son will be analysed, resulting in a comparison of other sources from pop culture which similarly complement and explore this confronting youth issue. The poem essentially highlights the influence and strain parents have on their children to reach unattainable expectations, sometimes leading to the diagnosis of a mental illness. Advice to a Son is about the dangers of parental demands, rather than ongoing encouragement. Hemingway could not have known the extent to which this topic would become in youth today.
The third paragraph includes crucial details that shifts Dillard’s experience with the show onto her audience. She begins with the inversion, “I saw from the ground a dozen stunt pilots;” used in order to upset the pattern of reading the audience is accustomed to. By creating the inversion, the audience is forced to read slower, and therefore think about the sentence longer. In the same paragraph, Dillard also creates a long sentence that uses multiple semicolons. She writes, “They...straightened out; they did barrel rolls, and straightened out;” in order to represent how continues and fast paced Rahm’s performance was.
