In this film review, I will define social learning theory, and I will make a correlation connection between The Departed (2006) and a couple of the propositions within the social learning theory. Moreover, the values, attitudes, and culture among the characters. The definition of social learning theory will come from my interpretation from Criminology Goes to the Movies: Crime Theory and Popular Culture, written by Nicole Rafter and Michelle Brown. Social learning theory arose from the Chicago School and the Social Disorganization theory. In addition, Edwin H. Sutherland was the initial sociologists.
They cut her tongue so she can’t speak” (Collins 77). Avox is a person who the Capital considers to be a traitor or sees him or her as a threat. So, instead of killing them, the Capitol brutally cuts their tongues as a punishment. This shows how torturing the Capitol’s laws are and the fact that they try to threaten anyone who dares to raise a voice against them in the near future. Thus by imposing strict punishment on the people, the Capitol threatens the citizens to maintain their
The theory that best relates to this movie is Agnew’s General Strain Theory. I will be describing in detail the general strain theory, giving a brief summary of the film and relating the theory to the crimes showcased in the movie. I also will be talking about the other behaviors that are seen in the movie and their corresponding theory. Robert Agnew’s General Strain
Gottfredson and Hirschi (1990) acknowledged within their self-control theory that the opportunities for crime are readily accessible and crime is typically not difficult to perform. Yet, Gottfredson and Hirshi focused on the lack of self-control as the cause of crime rather than the opportunities for crime. Cohen and Felson (1979) in describing the routine activity theory, later stated that motivated offenders must find suitable targets that lack guardians in order for crime to occur. Situational crime prevention strategies were the first to focus on specific crimes, the environment and the reduction of crime opportunities. The situational crime prevention theory originated in the Home Office Research Unit of the British Government in the 1970’s (Clarke, 2018).
In the movie Scarface we view go in depth about some life events of Cuban refugee Tony Montana when he enters the United States and receives his green card. We also see what leads him to his criminal activities of becoming a national drug lord. In this film there are a number of different theories that can be applied. I will be using Cornish and Clarkes Rational Choice Theory, along with Robert Agnew’s Strain theory in order to analyze Tony’s reasoning behind committing these crimes. I will be using examples from the film Scarface in order to draw and link these theories with the film.

With violence progressing from teachings, movies and entertainment as well as environments it's important to realize there's one of two outcomes; an endless generation of people who have been taught violence and will teach others or a drive and determination to allow yourself to be better and to influence those around them in environments for the
At the beginning, a death is discovered, then the detectives begin to collect evidence and contact witnesses. Towards the end, a perpetrator is found and a verdict is passed. This familiar structure grounds the viewer and prepares them to reflect further on the issues raised in each episode. ‘Anil’s Ghost’ provides informed political reflections on Sri Lanka’s rocky past through the eyes of well-informed characters. The novel is a hybrid genre, combining crime fiction with a political, historical and social focus.
He does this by using lines such as “When you have seen vicious mobs lynch your mothers and fathers at will and drown your sisters and brothers at whim”. By using this kind of incendiary language and sentence structure he lets the audience envision how horrible it would be to see this happening to you or your own friends. Through the emotions he provokes, King is able to pursue the reader to hear what he has to say about these outrage of acts. King asserts negotiation is the best way to resolve problems, but when it was not an option on the table, he obliges to confront injustices using nonviolent direct action. He emphasized “the purpose of the direct action is to create a situation so crisis-packed that it will inevitably open the door to negotiation.
The first reason is because he is a big guy, and Curley hates big guys. The second reason is because Lennie killed his wife. It states in “Of Mice and Men” that “Curley gon’ta wanta get ‘im lynched. Curley’ll get ‘im killed.” George chose for him because he wasn’t mentally capable of choosing for himself. He also didn’t want to see him die in such a horrible, cruel, suffering
Abominable action are executed by Scar, he murdered his own brother and king to seize his position as king; he also tried to murder his nephew Simba, the heir to the throne but failed and told him to run away.

Scar believed he was entitled to perform as he pleased; his behaviour was no longer the surviving behaviour to seize the position of king. There was a food and water shortage but he responded he would rather prefer death to come along to all of them in order to stay as king, in power of the whole kingdom. His main focus in life was being king and is above every other animal in the hierarchy and he behaved as he was not even concerned about his death but only his legitimate
