Jessup, Lt. Kendrick takes Daniel, Joe, and Sam on a tour around the base and through Santiago’s room. Daniel starts to suspect that there is more to the case than what he initially thought when, in response to being asked whether he thought Santiago was murdered or not, Kendrick says, “Private Santiago is dead and that 's a tragedy. But he 's dead because he had no code. He 's dead because he had no honor.” Later, as they all sit at dinner with Colonel Jessup and other military officials, Danny thinks that he can sneakily smooth talk Jessup into giving up information.

Chaos at the Do Lung Bridge Apocalypse Now showcases the story of Captain Willard and his mission to assassinate rogue colonel Kurtz while emphasizing the overall themes of the insanity of war, the desire to escape its terror, and the overall loss of morality one experiences during warfare. These three themes are demonstrated in a variety of ways at the Do Lung Bridge in what is regarded as one of the most significant scenes in the entire film. The scene at the bridge first fades in from black to reveal an anxious Willard trudging along a trench followed by a dazed Lance, tripping on the last of his acid. The scene is shot so that the cameras are deliberately level with the crouching soldiers and film close to the characters’ faces to help the audience feel as if they are actually in Vietnam looking at Willard and the other troops in the trenches. As Willard and Lance continue along the trenches, gunfire and bombs detonate in the
Explore the ways in which Miller presents women in ‘A View from the Bridge’ A view from the Bridge by Arthur Miller is a modern tragedy set in Brooklyn around the 1950s. The play centres around Italian immigrants and American values and way of life, focusing mainly on Eddie Carbone and his family and in particular his relationship with Catherine. Whilst Miller presents women as having stereotypical supporting roles, which was rather typical in the era set in as women were perceived as the weaker gender. In 1950s America, which was just after World War 2, it was common to see that people were strictly adhering to their stereotypical roles in society and tried to make a perfect life for themselves. He also depicts the unhappiness and frustration they experience which ultimately leads to rebellion against societal norms.
.When the Magistrate takes the Colonel to the visit the captive barbarian son and father, he is the only individual talking between the parties.

The son does not respond to him, but stares at the Colonel even though he can not see his eyes.
As the book progresses, more and more characters end up dying, increasing fear with the remaining airmen after every death. The attitude of the officers counteract this, most of them being indifferent to the survival of themselves or their men, generally only caring about their reputation; Lieutenant Scheisskopf “cared deeply about winning parades” (Heller 71) and Colonel Cathcart “was overjoyed, for he was relieved of the embarrassing commitment to bomb Bologna without a blemish to the reputation for valor he had earned by volunteering his men to do it” (Heller 120). Heller characterizes officers as men who disregard the lives of others by using them as chess pieces in a game of chess they do not want to be a part of. One method that represents the commanders disregard for life is the raising of flying missions by the orders of Colonel Cathcart which acts as an impassable obstacle. Most of the officers in this story view Yossarian as crazy and paranoid but as the book progresses Yossarian is represented by the desperate survival of human nature while the commanders are painted as antagonists who needlessly push their men into dangerous situations.
According to McClintock (2011), this fresh angle in approaching the war, as well as the commercial potential of presenting the exotic female community, appeals to Zhang Yimou greatly, and he changed the film title from The Heroes of Nanking to The Flowers of War. In the church where two groups of women seek sanctuary, “good” and “bad” women are divided by a set of cultural signifiers: blue cotton uniforms versus rainbow-hued silken Cheongsams; choral music versus dirty jokes.
