Chandler produces the classic detective novel through his use of conniving criminals, corrupt police, and characters that are slighted by the actions of those in their lives. The novels chief detective, Philip Marlowe, is unable to eliminate every criminal that crosses his path, much to his dismay. Although most of the offenders are apparent from the beginning of the novel, some are not revealed until towards the end. Consider mob boss Eddie Mars; well known by the police officers, along with his hitman Canino, yet no one seems to do anything about it. The absence of action is not a result of ineptitude; it is merely from the mob having control over everything, spanning from bootlegging to covering up murders.
While The Heat is a comedy, the overly unrealistic scenes in the movie are a turnoff. Examples of the overly unrealistic scenes in the movie include, when Agent Ashburn and Detective Mullins interrogate criminals, and when the two charge a warehouse with no backup. The movie has choppy scenes that hold no significance for the overall plot. Although the scenes add humor to the overall movie, the scenes seem out of place and do not relate to any other significant event. The other major weakness in the film is an overused trope: “enemies to friends.”
He is partnered with the Sheriff 's son Danny. Throughout the movie mysterious “accidents” keep happening where people turn up either missing or dead. This sparks curiosity in officer Angel because he believes these are no accidents but more of a murder. Nobody in the task force takes him seriously and they all turn a blind eye because the Sheriff gives orders to hid the real evidence.
The Trio, regularly hold up gas trucks at gunpoint, robbing the driver and giving away tanks of gas to the neighborhood and later disperse some of money to the younger boys. The majority of their crimes are not serious and the trio spend a large portion of their time recreationally using marijuana, and avoiding jobs. The notable difference between the trio and the later developing gangs is the Trio’s crimes involved merely the threat of physical violence as they largely abstained from seriously hurting people. The Trio decide that to gain enough money to escape the favelas, they need to move onto bigger crimes, like robbing a rich man’s house. Instead, the Trio use Shaggy’s little brother, Lil’ Ze’s idea to rob a motel, the last act the three of them would complete together.
However, in the midst of all this chaos, one man known only by the name V dares to stand up to the government and is labeled as a terrorist. One night V rescues a mild young
When we compare all these three movies, Bullet in the Head has more concern about social problems because it indicates Vietnam War and its consequences. For example, it criticizes militarism because in the movie soldiers (especially non-Americans or Vietnamese) kill people without any reason and violate them. The most crucial scene about the corruption in the system is robbery scene because when two friends burgled the jeweler, military forces came and gather gold from jewelry. Then, kill the owner and moved on. Therefore, this scene is a big reflector for the society and corruption.

The smile is the fake happiness created by Mildred to make herself believe she has a great life and nothing to complain or worry about. Under the thin layer or happiness she puts over herself lies the true feeling she buries away to never see: sadness and emptiness.

Mildred knows, deep down, her life is insignificant, but her fake happiness over shadows the pain too much to know the truth within herself. When the pain inside acts on Mildred, she subconsciously takes over 30 pills in an attempt to commit suicide.
Many people, like myself, believe that police officers do not always get in trouble when situations like police racism or brutality happen. They do not think about getting in trouble because most of them literally don 't at all. When cops get caught for illegal actions they are just going to get in trouble by there own friends on the force, just to be put on paid leave. Not being caught is a big issue and is mainly why cops think that they can do whatever they want and completely get away with it. In many
Police officers are not racist; they are doing their job.. The case of Abner Louima is a case when police were racist. Louima was a security guard at a nightclub when a fight broke out. He intervened and broke the fight up although when police arrived, he was arrested not the brawlers. Once at the station, he was forced to strip in public

Compare and contrast at least three female characters from the American films that we watched in the second part of the course, and analyze issues of femininity and Italian American ethnicity that emerge from the corresponding films. Review the article by Laura Mulvey and look for examples where the female characters are either granted or denied a narrative power through the usage of POV shots, camera looks, sound, or other storytelling techniques discussed throughout the course." This paper will show how the ideas of femininity and ethnicity shaped the way in which women were expected to behave in Italian-American movies of the 1980’s. It will consider their relationship with the prominent men in these movies, and how different expectations
