Madness is a subjective state, it is based and influenced by personal feelings, beliefs and opinions. Madness can be analyzed in different ways and can be seen in numerous areas in one’s life. Madness could be seen when a traumatic event has occurred and in personal opinions. A book that explains madness well is Oedipus Rex by Sophocles, which includes a traumatic event that causes the protagonist to go mad. In Plato’s Ion, madness could be seen in Ion’s belief that his opinions are sane but for Socrates they seem to be insane.
There is also a small plot, the father with two sisters indentify poisonous mushrooms, and it was more of a politically mischievous joke when the father took the two sisters to identify the mushroom, especially the last one in the film, “ never tell your mather”. (The spirit of the beehive). It feels more like a different system of inclusiveness. According to the author, “A surrealist film that applies literary surrealism to the genre of films. It inherited the creation advocate Andre serving East principle, emphasize the irrational behavior of the authenticity of the dream and the significance, not coordinated image of the column of personal emotional strength and the pursuit of pleasure.” (Surrealist Film).
But while all the acting is memorable, one always thinks first and mostly of Miss Swanson, of her manifestation of consuming pride, her forlorn despair, and a truly magnificent impersonation of Charlie Chaplin. Sunset Boulevard is a great motion picture, marred only slightly by the fact that the authors permit Joe Gillis to take us into the story of his life after his bullet-ridden body is lifted out of Norma Desmond 's swimming pool. That is a device completely unworthy of Brackett and Wilder, but happily it does not interfere with the success of Sunset
I ended up not following the story very well at certain parts then I was able to follow once I knew where I was at in the story. I would recommend if you haven’t watched or read Alice In Wonderland you should watch it sometime before you go see the play. I believe that the production was trying to tell us is that we are a different person than we are yesterday because Alice thought she wasn’t capable of doing the task she was given, the reason that made her think she wasn’t able to do it was that she was making a lot of mistakes. I think the director was trying to get us to go along with the journey with Alice to know how she was feeling while going through with her struggles. Overall, I really like the ballet.
After carefully analyzing the tale "Catskin" I found that the story is more complex than I could have predicted at first. Although the intended moral looks straightforward and supported by the narration, I found examples of how Catskin behaves differently from the blameless heroine that one would expect from a fairy tale 's princess: she is the perpetrator of a fraud, she behaves like a predator only waiting for the right occasion to strike and, finally, she craves to have her social prominence recognized. The moral of the story, which initially seemed to be about intrinsic virtues eventually granting a happily ever-after, fails when the overall conduct of Catskin is considered. However, the most controversial part of "Catskin" seems to be that the story actually presents a moral. The importance of the three beautiful gowns in the recognition of the protagonist 's beauty and the eventual father-daughter reunion after such a long time since Catskin 's son was born, prove how important facades are in the tail.
They treat his death casually, concocting a chocolate pill in order to resurrect Westley, as if this was a natural solution to the problem. While this is a critical part in pushing Westley back to the path of his quest, it’s utilization of humour results in the undermining of the plot. Although the witches play a crucial role in Westley’s transformation and the continuation of his quest, their excited and corky personas divert us from the seriousness of Westley’s
In the excerpt, “Why We Crave Horror Movies,” written by Stephen King, he argues that that we all have a little bit of insanity in all of us, and we all express it in different ways, from the chills to the guilty pleasure.

Tim Burton is one of the most unique film directors in the film industry. He is best known for his peculiar, twisted style in film directing that seems attract people’s attention.

Another work of Orson Welles in the film noir is Touch of Evil that presents archetypal elements such as burnout characters, dark environments, seedy scenes, strong shadows, tragic endings, extreme camera angles, disproportional settings and props, and more. All of those elements serve one and only purpose, a bitterness of life that unworthy of celebration. These elements work together to portray the imagery of unsavory facts in one person’s life. Touch of Evil’s archetypal character of Hank Quinlan, a corrupt police officer who illustrates a perfect stereotype of noir. He dresses like a drunk, as he was, before he converted from booze to candy bars according to Tana, the fortune teller, in one of the scenes when Quinlan pays a visit to Tana’s
