Considering the social research the elimination of the basic principles is against the idea of positivistic approach. Also, this leads to some problems in terms of ethics related with the process of the research which are affiliated with circumvention and concurrence. In this paper, I will try to analyse this problems of the research and discuss the scheme enfolded in the movie. The movie Kitchen Stories lack the efficiency and capability of the positivist approach when we look at it in theoretical perspective.
Opposers would say the theme of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is people are scared of change but things always change. Ray Bradbury writes, “A time to break down, and a time to build up.” This evidence is coming from Montag’s thoughts from him and the outsiders are heading towards the destroyed city to make it new. They want to change the way things are run and have literature be apart of everyday life instead of it being illegal like it was before. This theme doesn’t work for Fahrenheit 451 though because the cause of the change is people standing up for what they believe in.
Forcing people to follow a societal norm is detrimental to the health of the mind and body. The struggle between conformers and non conformers creates a schism in society. In the novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Ken Kesey asserts the overarching importance of individuality through the use of a conflict between the patients and the nurse as a microcosm of society. In the novel, the delusions of the narrator create a surreal world that reveals a strong message on the nature of conformity.
As a child, he also lost power over his own life when he was unconscious after being pushed in a pool. “ Little Billy was terrified, because his father had said Billy was going to learn to swim by the method of sink-or-swim.” (Vonnegut, 43) Billy is scarred by this and this made him give up on living, helpless to live and he contains a lack of motivation as he states “ it was like an execution.” (Vonnegut, 44) Billy even states he does not want to live, but simply does . " She made him feel embarrassed and ungrateful and weak because she had gone to so much trouble to give him life, and to keep that life going, and Billy didn 't really like living at all."
I’m not a fan of Ghostbusters or Star Wars. I don’t enjoy their movies. Did you feel your blood and mind automatically react to the opinion without thinking? Did I trigger your defense mechanisms to defend these movies and block out your other mental processes from the raw emotion I brought out of you from this statement? Using these emotional trips is the first step in getting your attention to a story or rumor.
In the novel, One That Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Ken Kesey sheds light on one of the world’s best kept secrets; the mistreatment of the ‘mentally ill’. Kesey proves that anyone capable of free-thought or having any form of diversity is seen as ‘broken’ and is forced to undergo certain treatments to fit expectations. From lobotomies to electroshock therapy, anything is fair game when it comes to treating those deemed as mentally ill. Bromden, the protagonist in One That Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, views the society he lives in as one that is brutal and oppressive. The hospital he lives in is seen as a ‘mechanic’s shop’ for those that don’t fit right in with the rest of society; a prison for displaced souls.
Kesey uses varations on drugs, sex, and violence to unravel the path for the plot. With the setting being in a psychiatric ward in Oregon, I can just imagine the lack of sanity and the aroma of paranoia that float around the asylum. Kesey, during the time period of the novel, was working a shift at a mental facility in California. Therefore, the novel is just a reflection of his experience. I take into assumption that he conversed with the patients and witnessed the ways of the institution.
Although he eventually grew tired and lost the final battle against Nurse Ratched, he ultimately won the war for the men. He gave them the freedom to rebel against Nurse Ratched and leave the ward, and he also helped them rediscover their sexuality. I saw his influence as most prominent during the fishing trip, in which he left the men to fend for themselves and provided little guidance, and during the final drinking party. However, after a thought-provoking discussion with a few of my classmates, I realized that the issue was a lot more complex. To apply the “winning the battle but losing
As far as the characters of both the novel and the film versions of Fight Club are concerned, we could easily see that some aspects of main characters in the novel, especially Tyler Durden and Marla Singer, are slightly modified in the film version. Fincher’s depiction of Tyler in the movie is closer to the popular culture, while Palahniuk doesn’t favour a popular character as he intends to create a more non-capitalist character. In this sense, Fincher’s manner as a director could be interpreted as a betrayal to the source material. What’s more, Tyler’s portrayal in the novel is more rebellious and chaotic; nevertheless, he isn’t that much impressive in the movie. In other words, Fincher tones down the extent of Tyler’s violence and his approach to capitalism both of which are the main interests of the novel.
Lockwood and Nelly Dean. This gave the film a credible source of emotions and information. Excluding the two narrative perspectives, allowed for unbiased point of views, as the film director also came to the conclusion that they were not credible as a narrative voice. In fact, according to Neville, “the camera lens is not suited for an unreliable narrative perspective.” It would have been unreliable for Nelly Dean and Mr. Lockwood to explain the story as they detested Heathcliff and would have portrayed him in a negative light as seen through their quotes from the novel, “"Hindley hated him, and to say the truth I did the same,” "gipsy," "wicked boy," "villain," and "imp of Satan.”
Social class theme reduction resulted in the removal of Ewell’s position hierarchy. A major theme, such as social class was not emphasised in the film. Perhaps it was because of the limitation that Robert Mulligan had adapted, or possibly he was not planning to dig deep with such an explicit theme. However, decreasing this theme disadvantages the viewers from witnessing the Ewell’s appellation, which is white trash. Unlike the book, the social class was heavily implied in Maycomb.
Ken Kesey’s figurative language in his novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, illustrates that a broken individual can be made whole again. Throughout his life, Bromden has always been assumed to be deaf and dumb. When he speaks to people, their “machinery disposes of the words like they were not even spoken” (181). Here, Kesey’s metaphor represents the effect that Bromden’s words have on a mind plagued with societal expectations. Bromden is a large, Native American man that does not conform to the mold set by the Combine.
Because the hospital ward, in Ken Kesey’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, complies with the restrictions of Nurse Ratched, McMurphy is seen as a manipulative instigator. Nevertheless, rebellion, such as McMurphy’s, is required for the powerless to free themselves from damaging constraints. Particularly, as Bromden realizes his increasing mental clarity (e.g. his improved sight), he gazes out the hospital window. Because the glass is covered with a metal mesh, Kesey implies McMurphy’s rebellious nature plants the seed for the patients’ freedom. At the window, Bromden notices, he “still had [his] eyes shut…like [he] was scared to look outside” (141).
Commonly the protagonist of a story is the hero, showing the typical characteristics of bravery, strength, and ingenuity, while always undertaking dangerous tasks to help others. However, there are different kinds of heroes, who range in their attributes. An anti-hero has both good and bad qualities to their character and generally has moral flaws. The personality of anti-heroes is more of a villainous nature and is the character of a story that is more relatable. R.P. McMurphy from Ken Kesey’s One
