The audience is aware of the detrimental effects that alcoholism can have upon a person’s life. “Life with him and the loss of him twisted us into shapes that will be familiar to other sons and daughters of alcoholics. My brother became a rebel, my sister retreated into shyness, I played the stalwart and dutiful son who would hold the family together” (Sanders 743). On the other hand, the audience is ignorant of alcoholism, “While growing up on the back roads and in the country schools and cramped Methodist churches of Ohio and Tennessee, I never heard the word alcoholism, never happened across it in books or magazines. In the nearby towns, there were no addiction treatment programs, no community mental health centers, no Alcoholics Anonymous chapters, no therapists.

However, not having any civilization around you puts you at great risks, including not having anyone around incase emergency strikes, which is exactly what happened to Chris. Again, this tends to make someone believe that he would know that, and it’s because he does. Being in the top of your class for high school and college does not come out of nowhere, and common sense would tell someone that it’s not a good idea to be alone in the middle of the final frontier for months on end. That’s why inside of The Hunger Games, the teenagers selected are put in there so that they die. Given, the games never last several months long, but it shows that when put into extreme environments, you will more than likely find struggle in surviving for very
12 Mallory Knox in Natural Born Killers www.flavorwire.com When two amazing directors come together on a project you can expect something good but when those two are Oliver Stone and Quentin Tarantino, you know you’re going to have something memorable. That’s exactly what happened with the 1994 cult classic Natural Born Killers. Now granted if Mallory Knox and her husband Mickey went on a shooting rampage down your street you probably wouldn’t be admiring them but ten minutes into the movie you’ll realize that even though she’s bad to the bone and has no regard for human life Mallory is one sexy and provocative character. The satirical crime drama follows the story of star-crossed lovers Mickey and Mallory Knox played by Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis, who become mass murderers who are glorified and almost revered by the media. While Harrelson also gave a killer performance as a stone cold murderer it was Lewis, with her lithe body and teeny outfits that caught (and held) everyone’s attention.
Donnie Darko, written and directed by Richard Kelly in 2001, boasts an utterly complex plot that challenges the concept of science fiction movies, as well as the underlying themes of a classic adolescent coming of age film. Using familiar themes of alienation and rebellion and first-love, Kelly employs humor, time travel, and a six-foot-tall bunny rabbit who alone sets the creepy tone that is present throughout Donnie Darko. The cast is star-studded with Jake Gyllenhaal playing the lead as Donnie Darko, Maggie Gyllenhaal as Donnie’s sister, Mary McDonnell as Donnie’s mother, as well as Drew Barrymore and the late Patrick Swayze cast as smaller roles. Categorized as a teen coming of age slash science fiction slash horror flick, Donnie Darko is a film both intellectually stimulating as well
With a catchy name and a quirky cast, “Shattered Glass” shocks the audience with twists and turns throughout the movie. For “Shattered Glass” being one of his first well-known films, director Billy Ray, does an impressive job at making this non-fiction film entertaining and informative during the 94 minutes. His career only went up from this movie; Ray went on to co-write “Captain Phillips” and “The Hunger Games,” two of the biggest films in the movie industry to this day. “Shattered Glass” tells a compelling story of a young journalist with a bright future who threw himself into a scandalous trap to further his career and ended up getting caught in the midst of countless lies. Stephen ‘Steve’ Glass, played by Hayden Christensen, was the “younger
Breakfast Club was a very interesting film to watch. It was funny, but at the same time it contained a lot of thinking questions that we have talked about in class. Looks can be deceiving because no one has is completely good or easy. This was proven in the film when all of the characters began talking about their lives, and they all realized they all had it very hard and challenging in their own ways. In my opinion I believe I am a mixture of Andrew Clark and John Bender.
