As the Young Lords Party, the branch in New York, became increasingly involved in using armed movements and guerrilla tactics to make a stance in America, they ultimately reached their downfall. The new movement that Bodega inspires, however, is not one that uses weaponry to make proclamations about Nuyoricans to the outside world but one that restores the barrio from within

The Godfather The concept of Verisimilitude seemed to fail for the most part with this movie.

Specifically, in the incident where the godfather is shot at the market, he dramatically falls onto the car, stops due to gravity, then flops over a few extra times before hitting the ground and moving again once more. I suppose the intention of the actions here are to convince the audience that he is truly and surely dead. Another example would be the famous scene with Jack Woltz, who awakened with a severed head of a horse at the
