For their dystopian ideas they both made them having some kind of rebel, who believes in more than just black and white or normal. They saw more to life and tried to make it better. The movie “The Giver” and the book “Anthem” both had a dystopian lifestyle, because they both had rules to follow and was under control by the upper class. The book “Anthem” by Ayn Rand was a good book. This book was all about a lie of a life.
Twelfth Night surrounds itself with stories of love, but not all of them end with positive outcomes. The definition of tragedy written by Oxford Dictionary as: “A play dealing with tragic events and having an unhappy ending” (Oxford Dictionaries), and of comedy as: “A film, play, or broadcast programme intended to make an audience laugh.” (Oxford Dictionary), helps to differentiate between these different outcomes of love, some as tragic and others as positive or comedic. Keeping these definitions in mind will help to further develop the lack of comedy and presence of tragedy that surrounds the sub plot concerning Malvolio. Nancy Lindheim continues to broaden the themes produced in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Lindheim’s Rethinking Sexuality and Class in Twelfth Night, notes that “critics of course usually recognize that marriage is the desired closure for comedy”, (Lindheim, 680).
The story of Romeo and Juliet is a typical love at first sight plot but includes various other aspects that make the story interesting and different to other movies or stories with the same basic plot line. For example, there are many outside complications that are stopping them from pursuing their love as well as a surprise twist at the end to conclude the legendary play. Zeffirelli and Luhrmann decided to go in two completely different directions with how they were going to portray the tragedy that is Romeo and Juliet. Zeffirelli decided to go down the classic route and put the entire play, including original script, on screen with a few line changes. However, Luhrmann decided to modernise the story has much as he could by changing the setting and having the actors portray the characters in a different style compared to the play.
It keeps the watcher outside the world which helps us learn the life lessons instead of empathizing with the characters in which was present in Macbeth. The reader could feel the guilt and anger that was going through Macbeth’s head as well as in Lady Macbeth’s. Both the play and the movie might have great similarities, but each has its own unique way to deliver the message to the reader/viewer. The philosophy in Throne of blood takes us well over Shakespeare, but they both serve the purpose of the story perfectly. Both Macbeth and Throne of Blood are unique in their own way, whether it’s the way the characters react, or to the themes.
However, consistent among them is a portrayal of Bottom that extends little beyond his foolish and beastly nature. However, in his film, Hoffman abandons commonplace interpretations of Bottom in order to create a complex and dynamic character through which the audience finds empathy and compassion. Hoffman achieved this task of breathing new life into Nick Bottom through his use of thematic elements, costume design, and character
Twelfth Night, does in fact corroborate with the idea that comedy is innately and “ultimately conservative” despite briefly “delighting in a topsy turvy world.” Many do argue that as most dramatic comedies, Twelfth Night, is of a more progressive nature, which as many playwrights constricted by the strict social rules of there time, Shakespeare aimed to critique society behind this guise of comedy. Shakespeare uses Viola as his symbolic green world in Twelfth Night, Thus causing chaos to ensue in Illyria. When dressed as Cesario, Viola holds the power and freedom of speech of a man,leading to her androgynous attractiveness to Olivia and thus catalysing the comedic plotlines of the play. The Topsy Turvy world of Shakespearean Comedy lends more space to create humour, the inversion of expectation and the creation of a subversive comedy in his characterisation and the use of social taboo is what makes Twelfth night’s conservative nature diminish. However “Ultimately” as in the end of the Green World and the play, Twelfth Night’s finale can definitely be seen as “ultimately conservative”.
Weirdly enough, part of the immersion we want from a film is to make us not notice we are seeing a film. We like getting into its fictional world and looking through the characters’ eyes in a way that feels natural, even in the wildest and craziest stories. When we talk about great films, we get into abstract territory: technical, original, controversial, or just fun. Entertainment is key, and while a lot of times comedies lack deep characters and are filled with generic storylines and clichés, writer/director Wes Anderson comes to prove us all wrong. He presents his story in a way that it lets you know you are watching a work of fiction, more in the fashion of a moving painting than traditional film some might say.
In the previous acts the audience enjoys Shakespeare’s witty sense of humor. If we closely look at the previous scenes, Act III, Scene IV-V, we noticed that they do not do much for the advancement of the plot specially considering that the last scene was purely for
R&G Are Dead (A Discussion of Messages and Themes Present in the Film, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead) When it comes to influential literary works, there will always be spin offs or imitation from later authors. Sometimes these spin offs can be of high quality, or other times low quality. The constant imitation of stories related to Greek Mythology, Shakespeare, and the Bible display the cultural significance of texts such as these. Possibly the most widely famous play of all time, Shakespeare’s, Hamlet has earned a great deal of attention and study. As a result of this, a play was made much later to analyze the off screen actions of flat characters.
when the ending is taken in light of Miss Prism’s commentary, one should start to wonder what Wilde is trying to say in ending his play in such a clichéd manner. Though the main characters’ actions portray them to be scatterbrained and foolish, taking trivial matters seriously and serious matters trivially, they haven’t necessarily done anything terrible, as their actions do little to harm others inside or outside of their social circles, and they haven’t done much good, either. Not only does Wilde’s ending follow the “rules of fiction”, he follows these rules so judiciously that Earnest takes on the air of parody. Earnest’s plot follows an outline of a cheesy romance story—two or more individuals fall in love at first sight, some conflict
The book was more believable than its film adaptation because the movie’s alternate ending warped the main message, directorial choices changed the story’s credibility and its ending was illogical. First and foremost, the film’s alternate ending warped the main message. To recapitulate, the protagonist was Jerry
In Conclusion, The film “The Great Gatsby” symbolizes a distortion of the actions and events surrounding the three main characters of the novel; Daisy, Nick and Tom. Although Baz Luhrman 's dramatized approach to "The Great Gatsby” is more entertaining and hence more marketable it takes away from the originality of the novel and underscores the complexity of its characters and themes. It is this complexity that has made “The Great Gatsby” a masterpiece and the movie 's failure to properly depict these complexities is one of the reasons why I found Baz Luhrman 's interpretation disappointing. To the ordinary audience, the movie 's aesthetic grandeur may be enticing, however for a person who genuinely enjoyed Fitzgerald’s work the absence of abstract
