In many ways Grace is seen as an unpleasant character. In “The Others” Grace is seen as a very religious person who believes god and the Christian scriptures (the bible) shouldn’t be questioned. When Ann starts asking questions about the doubt of god and the afterlife (heaven and hell) Grace doesn 't find it acceptable.. Grace shouts at Ann “God would never allow such an abomination” then separates Ann from Nicholas. Ann is made to read the bible as her punishment and restore faith.
Chapter 3- Analysis of Character Trait, recklessness Grace has had a problem with being very reckless. Throughout the book, you will see examples of Grace acting without thinking, and usually getting in trouble after. Most of the recklessness had to do with catching the scarred man, but I noticed that some of them had to do with other things as well. Something I noticed about the other times that Grace was being reckless that didn’t have to do with the Scarred Man was just Grace being the hero.
Samuel Johnson once said, “Self-confidence is the first requisite to great undertakings.” It is apparent that self-confidence is the key to success, but maintaining that self confidence is a tool that less possess. The question is not whether someone has the ability to maintain self-confidence or not, but rather, how influential is self-confidence in the development of one’s life? The very answer to that inquiry can be found in Barbara Kingsolver’s novel, Animal Dreams in which characters can be found to be intensely affected by their own lack of self-confidence. Although, many believe that self-confidence plays a tremendously important role in the development of a person, some would argue that self-confidence is but our imagination; and the real problem lies within one’s personality and beliefs.
Yes, I do believe that that Dogville is an exploration of subjective feelings and ideas. Which it all comes down to Tom and his ideas. I believe that Tom took advantage of Grace’s current need and issues for his own gain. Yes, he confessed to Grace that he was in love with her on fourth of July and she thought she felt the same way too.
In today’s age, cinematographers, directors, editors etc have the technology at their fingertips – special effects, CGI (computer generated technology) and equipment such as green screens. As North By Northwest was released in 1959, limited available technologies meant that directors had to make scenes look as realistic as possible. An example of this is scattered throughout the film. Green screens had not been invented when the film was released but an invention called rear projection allowed for the illusion of a moving vehicle. Rear projection was created by using a plate made of a strip of film.
Within accordance to Kenneth Robert Jenkens’s novel, The Wilmington Ten, Khalil Gibran Muhammad’s Introduction in The Condemnation of Blackness, Stanley Nelson 's The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution and Damon Davis and Sabaah Folayan Whose Streets?, the interpretation of African Americans being treated unfairly within the court system is clearly portrayed. From the aspects of having an unfair trial, to police brutality, to even murder, racism is a problem that has been going on for various years, that just continues to happen. The Wilmington Ten were a group of teenagers who were wrongly incarcerated in 1971.
In the movie we know that Spooner is not trust in those robot, Spooner is haunted by the fact that a robot chose to save him, and not a young girl, from a sunken car because strict logic dictated that he had a greater chance of surviving and contributing to society (Tom Neven, 2004).

For many, we take great advantage of our lives. We are able to walk or drive to a nearby store, grab a carton of milk for two dollars, and drive home within an hour. For others, they do not get such a luxury. We can see these hardships through photographs taken by Jennifer Natalie Fish. She has spent most of her life, twenty-five years to be exact, photographing the lives of many domestic workers and how they live their life every day.
Prior to this class I did not know the severity of just how deadly eating disorders were. Growing up you heard about eating disorders and there may have been a few girls in high school that you knew were suffering from an eating disorder but that was the extent of what you knew. The fact that 8 million people are affected by an eating disorder is a staggering number that should alarm parents and peers alone. But although it affects this many people and has the highest mortality rate among psychiatric disorders it is rarely talked about until it hits close to home.
To be highly involved in the production of a film and/or TV show. I would prefer a higher position of leadership such as being a director. I love the notion of conceptualizing an image, carrying it out and making it a reality. Cinema is something that brings joy to a wide variety of audiences. People form connections and bond over something as simple as being a fan of the same TV show or movie.
