One such moment would be when a girl named Vurka Salt is thrown into an incinerator pit by squirrels who deem her a bad nut, as she tips over the edge of the pit the audience is given one last look at her fearful face. The situation is on the surface is a harmless joke about how the girl is a selfish brat who needs discipline.

Perhaps it is apt then that it stands introspective of some of history’s most classical sociological theories and one of its most renowned classical theorists. For the purpose of this review, I will be analyzing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory through the lens of a Marxist approach and its two theories discussed in class readings - Capitalism and Alienation. The overall message of the book revolves around the concept of karma or ‘what goes around comes around’.

This scene features all of the main characters as they are introduced to Willy Wonka’s land of candy and wander through it, this scene reveals all of the characters personalities whilst they interact with each other. The children’s actions as well as appearance tell the audience of their personality, which leads to developing the narrative as Willy Wonka reacts to the individuals.
