...Oliver Stone’s USA Wesley Kostovetsky 3070 Spring The History Behind Oliver Stone’s Success Oliver Stone is called by many a historian. Some call him a cinematic historian. Others call him a type of public historian. Oliver Stone likes to refer to himself strictly as a dramatist and in some cases a docu-dramatist. Whatever title chosen there is no doubt he has a made a huge impact through his films; though some may argue in a negative way. Oliver Stone has written and/or directed films about the Vietnam War, Kennedy’s assassination, Nixon’s presidency, Wall Street, the military dictatorship in El Salvador, and many other subjects. Stone’s expertise in film lay in what most “Hollywood executives prefer to avoid. Historical and political cinema is supposedly deadly at the box office.” Stone’s films are known to make audiences “uncomfortable” and cause “controversy”. Through four essays, including one written by Oliver Stone himself explains the reason why his films have made huge impacts and controversies; as well as, the differences between written history and history on film, and the life experiences leading to the creation of some his films and his connection to them. Since the beginning of his career Stone has been “viciously attacked” by critics about his films. The main argument by critics of history films is that they are too fictional for a number of reasons. Though containing “numerous authentic elements” and details the invention of scenes, dialogue,......

In Cold Bood Essay

...In cold blood was written by Truman capote in 1965 detailing the brutal 1959 murders of Herbert clutter, his wife and their two kids Nancy and Kenyan clutter. Truman capote tries to remain unbiased, in his book In cold blood by attempting to counter his affinity to the killers (i.e. Perry and dick) but when you read this novel his bias becomes apparent due to his disdain for the death penalty. Shown by pointing out his belief that dick and Perry’s trial was unfair and unjust it begins with capote pointing out the killers defense lawyers lack of enthusiasm. Dick hickock’s involvement in the clutter murders began when he solicited Perry’s help in planning the crimes, so he is the mastermind of this heinous crime and is just as guilty, if not more guilty than Perry. In the novel dick is the first person to come up with the plan. While in prison dick came up with a plan to get a lot of money (a cinch he called it) while talking to Floyd wells one of Herbert clutter former employees. He heard that Mr. Clutter had a safe filled with thousands of dollars it was then that he came up with a plan to rob the clutters and start a new life in Mexico. Dick said to Floyd wells he’s going to (splatter hair on them walls) leave no witness. This show that dick premeditated this crime having come up with this plan in prison and show that he is the architect of this crime. And this voids dicks excuse that he shouldn’t get the death penalty because he didn’t pull the trigger because while he......

Two Birds with One Stone

...Elyse DeLaney Professor Kate Kelly Religious Studies October 28, 2012 Two Birds with One Stone: An Essay of War and Compassion in Three Vonnegut Novels It is only the dead who have seen the end of war. -Plato Vonnegut prides himself on writing novels with science fiction elements and three of his novels, Player Piano (PP), God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater (GB), and Hocus Pocus (HP) are prime examples of war and compassion. Vonnegut’s critique of war reveals that he considers compassion to be the most sacred aspect of human life. In Player Piano, the novel’s protagonist, Dr. Paul Proteus (PP 23) is forced to choose between the successes of his company or become the leader of a rebellion against the machine society. People are slowly, but surely, being replaced by machines and artificial “workers,” such as automated tellers at banks and self-checkouts at groceries. Vonnegut uses this movement of mechanization in the 1950’s and responds to the dehumanization in this novel. Machines and computers have eliminated the need for industrial laborers after the Second Industrial Revolution and society is then split into two unequal classes: manager and engineers of the machines and the rest of the population that live without happiness or dignity. The two unequal classes is just one example of war in Player Piano. The two populations live in segregation, with the north side of the river saved for the upper class and the south side of the river, or Homestead, are......

The Stones Cry Out Themes Essay

...The Stones Cry Out: Analytical Essay In Hikaru Okuizumi's book, "The Stones Cry Out", we follow a man named Manase through his life after the war. Although this seems like just a look on a mans life, there are many themes that tie us in. Hikaru uses many literary elements to develop those themes. Four of those elements are complication, false assumptions, flashbacks, and foreshadowing. Although there are many key themes, the two I noticed the most were the psychological effects of war and family complications due to the loss of a loved-one. Complications are defined as obstacles that increase tension. In the beginning of the book, the complications would be when Manase is faced with his memories of the time he was in the cave with the captain during the war, "He did not want to remember-Manase understood that very well. Even though he could taste his fear, he needed only to remind himself that he was lying on a soft mattress, not a cold bed of rocks."(28) The effects the war had on him were so immense that every night he would have nightmares of it. As this quote states, he didn't want to remember it. He would imagine those times in the war and the dreams seemed as real to him as the day they happened, that's why he needs to constantly remind himself that the war is over. When something is believed to be true; however is not true. An assumption isn't what's said, it is what is behind the words. This is the definition of false assumptions. Though Hikaru......

The Stone Boy

...An essay of - The Stone Boy by Gina Berriault. In some communities things stay in the same repetition as it always has done, and they do not follow the development of society. Their behaviour and their way of thinking are old and out-dated. In this particularly society the priorities are to live an easy quite life, and they are not interested in learning about the world outside their fields. They have to go to school, get a job, get married and then start a family of their own and in South America this is a typical way of living.

The Stone Boy - English Essay Assignment

...The Stone Boy Tragedy is something that any human has to face in life. During these moments of intense emotion, humans come together in unity, to cope with whatever distress they face. But what happens if one human is left out of the flock, to attend himself when tragedy hits? The text revolves around this theme of neglect, and how a person can become afraid and want to alienate oneself from the ones who should be close to them, if they aren’t cared for when tragedy occurs. The setting of the story “The Stone Boy” by Gina Berriault is on a farm in the countryside, the place is isolated, which fits into the theme as a symbol for alienation. Arnold lives here with his parents, older brother Eugene and older sister Nora. One day Arnold accidentally shoots and kills Eugene when his rifle gets jammed in a fence wire. Instead of going back to his family straight away, he goes picking peas for an hour. After he has told his parents what happened, he isolates himself in a barn before he’s taken to the police by his dad and uncle. Because he doesn’t run straight back home after the accident, the Sheriff speculates him being a sociopath, which his uncle takes note of. He is overlooked by his family, and rejected when he tries to talk with his mother one the night. It all ends with him leaving the house to retrieve a newborn calf. The narrator being 3rd person and bound to Arnolds’ point of view is significant in the regard that it tells us how he feels, and what his thoughts......

In Cold Blood Character Analysis Essay

...In Cold Blood Character Analysis Essay Perry Smith Is one born a murderer or does one become a murderer? That is the question that Truman Capote tackles in his non-fiction novel In Cold Blood. In his 1966 novel Capote relates in detail the true and horrific murders of four members of the Clutter family in 1959 in the town of Holcomb, Kansas, but more specifically focuses on the murderers, Perry Smith and Dick Hickock, and their motivation to commit such a cold blooded crime. Out of the two, Perry Smith is the most complex character who displays a natural ability to kill, but who also has been shaped to become a murderer, making a more “likable” character than his co-murderer Dick Hickock. In the first part of his novel entitled The Last to See Them Alive, Capote gives the reader hints that Perry Smith is indeed born a natural killer. When he was jailed in the Kansas penitentiary “Perry described a murder, telling how simply for the hell of it," he had killed a colored man in Las Vegas - beaten him to death with a bicycle chain” (Capote 54). After hearing the story his future partner in crime Dick Hickock “became convinced that Perry was that rarity, "a natural killer" - absolutely sane, but conscienceless, and capable of dealing, with or without motive, the coldest-blooded deathblows” (Capote 55). Perry Smith certainly proved to be “that rarity” when he cold bloodedly killed with a single shot in the head Nancy, Kenyon, Bonnie Clutter, and cut Herb Clutter’s......

In the text, The Stone Boy by Gina Berriault, we follow a boy who behaves exceptional calm, after he killed his brother. But do you really have the tools to tell, when a person is feeling stung just by observing his way to conduct? Places in the text including the grown-ups reactions on the incident and their way to handle the situation, tells us that no one really discovers the course of pain he is going through. On a little farm in the country, two brothers are going out for picking up peas. One of the boys Arnold decides to carry a rifle with him for the purpose of hunting ducks by the lake. On the way over a wired fence at the way down to the lake, a shot was unfortunately fired from Arnold’s rifle. The bullet had hit the other brother, Eugie.

He got an uncle named Andy who is more like an enemy rather than a friend for Arnold. ‘’You don’t want him?’’ is Andy’s reply to the sheriff when he tells him and the father to take Arnold back home. It doesn’t seem like uncle Andy together with the distant father really cares about the little boy. Before the accident Arnold behaves just like you could......
