For example, when a group of men mocked Pat by calling him “coocoo bird,” his mood, unrealistically, was unchanged. Normally, this mocking gesture would instigate an aggressive outburst. Lastly, it is misleading for the movie to portray this character with bipolar I disorder as someone who can alleviate his negative urges solely because he befriended someone who is capable of distracting him from his harmful temptations. This disorder is more complex than the movie suggests at times. In reality, the large time frames when Pat would act normally would most likely be due to his medication, which they eventually stopped showing him
He starts out in his normal life where things go wrong for him which is his status quo. Then he acquires assistance and his call to adventure from a note and a babylon candle left by his mother. Tristan then goes on to have many trials and conflicts until he reaches his crisis and the villain is defeated. This is an example of a classic Hero’s Journey cycle in action Another way Stardust connects to the classic Hero’s Journey is through the various archetypes that are present throughout the film. It possesses all the basic archetypes such as the hero (Tristan), sage (Captain Shakespeare and various other characters), and villain (Lamia).
Although both the play and the movie is dramatic, the movie was more dramatic. When Mercutio died, it was a lot more dramatic than in the play, when Tybalt killed him he looked like he regretted it a little and Mercutio didn’t want help from Romeo when he tried to help him walk, he kept pushing him away. The love between Romeo and Juliet was more immature than in the play, even the movie made it seem more immature than in the play. Even though they both cared for each other greatly, their love seemed a bit childish. Their love is more of a flight of fancy than serious, they tried to be serious but that didn’t work well.
When their husbands would leave, they would have to feel lonely while the Husband could go off and cheat. For example, when odysseus left Penelope all alone, he went out and cheated on her with Calypso. Although many people believe that Homer presented woman positively, the characters the Sirens, Scylla and Calypso actually suggest the opposite. First of all ,Homer portrays the sirens as manipulative. When Odysseus returns to Aeaea, he stays with circe for the last time.
In all their films, Valentino’s character begins the film damaged in some way, either losing someone close to him or losing a vast fortune (Slater 100). In some films, such as The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and The Young Rajah, Valentino’s character rejects the advice of male figures to seek material wealth and instead relies upon the guidance of female figures to find spiritual peace. In other films, such as Camille and Blood and Sand, Valentino’s character gives in to his greed and desire, and in doing so alienates himself from the woman he cares about. The message Mathis is trying to send is clear: masculinity founded on selfishness and violence can only stifle relationships and lead to isolation, whereas rejection of those evils led to inner peace and satisfaction (Slater 100). In all the films, however, Valentino’s character struggles to find his identity, and in some he dies without ever truly resolving his internal struggle.

Shape-shifting does seem to extend beyond a simple deception but remains within the realm of manipulation. Where shape shifting is concerned “not even the boundaries of species or sexuality are safe” (Mapping Trickster Characteristics 36). This is the case in the twentieth tale of the cycle in which he transforms himself into a “very pretty woman indeed” (Winnebago Trickster Cycle 135). After having done so, he marries a chief’s son. Not only is this a story concerning the transformative nature of
Shakespeare uses the character Juliet to show how reckless young people can be. He shows this by using Phoebus from Roman and Greek mythology. “Gallop apace, you fiery-footed steeds, Toward Phoebus ' lodging” (Shakespeare). Phoebus is reckless and rushes into things just like Romeo and Juliet did. Romeo and Juliet met one day and then got married the next they were reckless about their love and life not getting the chance to know each other first.
The film, Annie Hall, was released in 1977 with Woody Allen as the cowriter, director and main actor. In this essay Annie Hall will be analysed with regards to how the film subverts typical romantic comedy expectations. Annie Hall could be seen as a conventional romantic comedy in the sense that the typical character traits have been implemented, for example boy meets girls, the main couple break up and get back together, the man chases after the girl to win her back, as well as flashbacks of memories incorporated.
