The third and fourth stanza show him becoming much more loose in his presentation of thoughts, while also having a lot of slashes. In these lines, he is describing the different places in which people gather together to watch the stickball team and the Saturday evening gang-fights. The use of the slash in these lines seem to show clearly here that he isn’t always certain if particular things are supposed to go together, thus giving space between those thoughts and also giving what seems to be alternatives to the ideas presented previously. Although there is a very similar sense in which these two places provide a disconnect from society to watch these forms of entertainment, both serve a different purpose and thus are given space to allow themselves to live within their own being. The humoristic tone also becomes a bit more frequent within these stanzas as he provides the self-deprecating name of the stickball team, being “‘the new york junkies’”, a play on words of the name New York Yankees.
“When you teach your son you are teaching your son’s son.” Imagine not being allowed to eat your dinner because your alcoholic dad decided to stay at the bar all day, and not fitting in at school.This is how it is for Manuel (Manny) Hernandez the main character and narrator, of the novel Parrot In The Oven by Victor Martinez. I can relate to Manny’s narrative because of his struggles with fitting in and his dad getting arrested, but I can not relate to having an alcoholic dad. Manny Hernandez and I both have issues fitting in. Manny tries out boxing in order to fit in or to be one of the cool kids.”he made me his equipment manager and handler,”(Martinez 119). Lencho made Manny feel he was somewhat important.This relates to my own personal life because I have issues fitting in and finding friends that I can trust especially now that I am in High School.
While you're walking down toward your dumpster to throw your trash think about how much food is going to waste just because it's a day over the expiration date. The essay “On Dumpster Diving” by Lars Eighner comes from his book Travels with Lizbeth. In this essay Eighner speaks about his journey throughout his life living on the street and having to join the dumpster diving family. Although the term dumpster diving for him proved to be inaccurate because he lacked the ability to lower himself into dumpsters. He prefers the word “scavenging” when referring to what he does to obtain food and daily necessities.
The movie and story have a few key similarities. One similarity of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow movie and writing is the names are the same in both pieces. This helps the person either reading or watching the Legend of Sleepy Hollow to understand what's happening. Another similarity from the writing to the movie is the type of character. For an example, Ichabod Crane is a static and round character because we know a
Even in the middle of the madness there remained a true and natural beauty, and it took my mind away from my current situation.”(Beah 59) Ishmael manages to take his mind off of what he is experiencing and focus on the natural beauty around him. This shows the magnitude of Ishmael’s innocence before becoming involved as a soldier. Ishmael is at the army’s current base and is reflecting on his feelings about the enemy. He angrily thinks how, “Whenever I looked at rebels during raids, I got angrier, because they looked like the rebels who played cards in the ruins of the village where I had lost my family. So when the lieutenant gave orders, I shot as many as I could.”(Beah 122) The pain and sadness Ishmael first felt after losing his family has morphed into uncontrollable anger after becoming a soldier.
This shows the audience that the Truman show was made so that you get different angles of cameras in different situations, like in the part where Meryl was about to “Dice me or slice me or peel me so many choices.” When Meryl says “do something” right the camera she was talking to Christof. Or when Truman and Marlon were talking and Trueman’s dad shows up they show a camera looking up at him from the waist up. But in Christof 's world all the cameras look normal there are no weird angles.
Smith shows next to no physical camera movements in scenes and just maintains long takes that talk about any action that could be shown. The use of two-shots, sometimes three shots, over the shoulder interactions and a shot reverse shot are the cornerstone in 95% scenes of a Kevin Smith movie. We can also always expect a montage of establishing shots depending upon where the scene is taking place right at the beginning of the film, almost as a Smith calling card. The only instances we get to see a handheld or a tracking shot is when it bears tremendous weight to the story. There is an ideal representation of this in the second act of Chasing Amy when Holden admits his love for Alyssa and she exits the car into the rain.
It switches from room to room with little movement. Although the angles were not extravagant, for this particular movie i feel as if they didn't need to be. Most of the story came from the actors and the dialogue shared from one another. Overall the cinematography was done well in my opinion, and was not to annoying or crazier than it needed to
Cameras contribute to this form as they are used to capture life as it is happening. In this genre of film, the camera is not meant to be an object that interferes with the life it is capturing, rather one that observes. By being an object that only observes, it gives meaning that life would continue, with or without the camera there. “…documentaries usually claim that those events did take place in such a way, and that the images and sounds on the screen are accurate and relatable. They speak about actualities and show us people who in some sense share-or once shared-the world we live in,” (Spence and Navarro 13).
