The debate over which version of the movie The Great Gatsby does justice to the book has long been dominated by critics and journalists, both professional and unprofessional, in the literary world.

Fitzgerald’s novel, The Great Gatsby, tells through narrator Nick Carraway’s eyes the story of Gatsby, a rich man of immense hope who pines over Daisy Buchanan, his long lost love from before the war. Daisy married Tom Buchanan while Gatsby was a soldier because Gatsby was too poor for a socialite such as herself. The story follows Daisy and Gatsby’s brief and tragic reunion in the summer of

After the discovery of his surprising public scandal, it has become incongruous to have any kind of discussion about Bill Cosby in a politically neutral manner; even though only one year prior, hating Cosby would have been synonymous to hating the Beatles. However, what if it were disclosed that Paul McCartney had been torturing puppies for the past fifty years, would Abbey Road instantly be viewed negatively in the public eye? Bill Cosby’s, Himself, has been regarded as one of the most influential stand up specials in history, so is it conceivable to dismiss his work from the upper echelons of comedic greatness? While Himself’s grandeur shouldn’t pardon any of Cosby’s maliciousness, shouldn’t it still be appreciated as a work of timeless
Citizen Kane is an iconic movie that changed the way Classical Hollywood cinema was viewed. This film had such a high expectation around it when it was first released in 1941. Citizen Kane was surrounded with various rumours of the movie being based on the real life story of the famous newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst. However it was never clarified by Orson Welles that the movie was actually about Hearst so the movie could not just be branded a biographical movie. The genre of this film was hard for film critics and viewers to decipher.

To Kill A Mockingbird Comparative Essay To Kill A Mockingbird was published in 1960, immediately grabbing the public by the ear and showing them the dirty and racist underbelly of the deep south. Only two years later, the movie is produced, showing even more people the uncomfortable truth. As you may have heard before by the reviews of so many stories, the book is better than the movie. This claim will not come as a surprise to many, for the book is taken as a godsend to a large chunk of the population, where the movie, despite the outstanding quality for the time, is not so well regarded when stacked up against one of America’s favorite pieces of classic literature. An issue that is commonly found in the film is the lack of setup to Boo Radley’s reveal.
Ryan Bassil (2013) has argued that director Baz Luhrmann has completely missed the depiction of how F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote his novel, The Great Gatsby. As the era enjoyed social vitality, artistic and cultural dynamism, it gave rise to the name “The Roaring ‘20’s in America (IIE,2016:19), which was a time of wealth, and seemingly endless possibilities. This essay will therefore repudiate why Bassil’s statement is flawed and why Luhrmann’s personal style or aesthetic, his materials and the diegesis enhances the fortunes of the characters and intrigues his viewers and therefore augments the film entirely. Auteur theory (Sarris, 2004) is explained by way of the director as the author of the film, who gives the film its distinctive quality. An auteur uses a tool called the “camera-pen”, which is a different medium to create and adapt a story, without it being rewritten.
