Though the film seems most obviously about a child's nightmare in an unrelenting world of pain, violence, and death, Pan's Labarinth joined realism and fantasy through cinematogrsphy. One aspect that made this film different was that one side of the story, the realism, was violent, fierce, and forceful, while the other followed the main protagonist through her mystical quest to become queen of a distant world. With the use of cinematography in Pan's Labrinth, through dolly shots, over the shoulder shots and pans it connects the fantasy with the reality. Ofelia, enters the fantasy relm where the thin, pale man lives. She must retreave the daggar from one of the three locked compartments in the wall. She is introduced as a camera is following her through the use of a dolly shot the audience is seeing what Ofelia sees, the table displayed with lavish foods, in a time when food in reality is being rationed, so as the camera is following her it creates this sense of forbidden atmosphere, The thin man is at the head of the table as though he were guarding it. Ofelia knows she must not eat but through this technique, tension arises because the audience knows that she might not be able to resist.
More tension and anxiety is generated when Ofelia is face to face with this grotesque creature. With the use of this over the shoulder shot of Ofelia looking at the thin man, because she is out of focus the audience can observe the crese and folds that the pale man has, but they cannot see his hands or his lower body therefore building to the suspense.
As the camera pans out and above Ofelia head she realizes just what this creature does to small children. This slow pan action increases the suspension because it isn't until it comes all the way down and to the floor that the audience notices the piles of children shoes and Ofelia in the backgroung perhaps…...

Red Pony

...includes four stories about a young boy Jody Tiflin who lives on his father’s California ranch. Similar to Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston, the story takes place in America in the early 20th century. Each of the novel’s small town setting provides a simple yet unique economy. Through the stories of Jody Tiflin and Janie Crawford, I have made some conclusions about their specific economy. I believe that the economies of The Red Pony and Their Eyes Were Watching God contain a relatively independent economy that features many dedicated and self-employed members of society. Through the short stories in The Red Pony, Jody learns the importance of being an independent rancher who can provide for himself and his family. Although Jody is only ten years old at the start of the first story, his father Carl Tiflin believes that the most important way to mature is through firsthand experience. Mr. Tiflin asks “If you could have another horse would you work for it…?” and states that “Billy says the best way for you to be a good hand with horses is to raise a colt” (60, Steinbeck). Billy, the only paid worker on the Tiflin ranch, adds “It is the only way” (60, Steinbeck). As an aspiring leader in the business world, I completely agree with the way Carl Tiflin is teaching his son. Just like in business, the only way to get a true grasp on becoming a rancher is to actually get firsthand experience. Through the knowledge that Jody has acquired from these......

Born This Way ever changing part of society. It shapes to the ideas and interests of the people and creates a face to current pop culture. The problem with music is that certain kinds do not appeal to every person. Music is personal to the listener, and what may sound good to one might sound awful to another. In the article “Lady Gaga’s New Album Is a Pop Rapture”, author Jody Rosen offers an illustrative, interesting look at the music industry and the appeal of music to an audience. When creating a critical piece of writing it is important to be aware of the intended audience. Rosen successfully utilizes an excess of rhetorical strategies in his writing. His writing catches to the intended audience, and it is clear who the audience is meant to be. Throughout Rosen’s article, it is clear that he likes Lady Gaga’s talent and songwriting abilities, and his language and rhetorical strategies help to show his point in a great way.   When writing an article that reviews anything it is important to be aware of the intended audience. Not only that, it is equally important to successfully support the writing for the audience. In Jody Rosen’s article he clearly states his intended audience: Gaga fans. Rosen identifies his audience in a perfect manner, and his ability for description leaves the reader with a good image in their mind. Rosen appeals to this audience by describing Gaga as a music genius. He gets to the roots of Lady Gaga’s music and brings it to life off the page. With this type...

...the story it is said that, “This business of head-rags irked her endlessly. But Jody was set on it. Her hair was not going to show in the store. It didn’t seem sensible at all. That was because Joe never told Janie how jealous he was. He never told her how often he had seen other men figuratively wallowing in it as she went about the things in the store. And one night he had caught Walter standing behind and brushing the back of his hand back and forth across the loose end of her braid ever a lightly so as to enjoy the feel of it without Janie knowing what he was doing. Joe was at the back of the store and Walter didn’t see him. He felt like rushing forth with the meat knife and chopping off the offending hand. That night he ordered Janie to tie up her hair around the store. That was all. She was there in the store for him to look at.” (Hurston 55) At this point Joe has an understanding of the power that Janie possesses over people. To be more specific, her hair is a constant physical reminder of the power Janie possesses over the rest of the world and more specifically over men. Her hair exhibits the power her whiteness has and its control over other people. When Joe realizes this power that Janie has, he makes her his possession. He comes to realize just how easily this power can be taken away. Janie’s hair also represents her strength and expresses her individuality. While in her marriage to Jody, he forces her to wrap her long hair because he is jealous, as previously......

...her do all sorts of things that only men should have to have done. He was even going to make her plow the fields-a job that requires a considerable amount of strength: strength that Janie didn't have. Janie complained that nothing beautiful was ever said. She had no love with Logan Killicks. That is why she left him for a man that showed much potential to give the kind of love she was looking for. The whistling man that Janie ran away with was Jody Starks. With Jody, Janie thought that she would forever have "flower dust and springtime sprinkled over everything." She thought she'd have "a bee for her bloom". She didn't exactly find this in Jody though. In him she definitely found change and chance, but still not the love she was looking for. What Jody had for Janie was more of a lust than a love. He was very protective of her and didn't want anyone else to see in her what he saw. He gave Janie many things including lots of money, but he couldn't give her love. The little love that was there eventually died, So did Jody. Finally, Janie met up with Tea Cake. The moved together to the Muck in the Florida Everglades and lived in Tea Cake's Shanty. They spent each new day together.

...both genders. Rampton refers to the protest of the Miss America pageant in 1968 and 1969 where the women “crowned a sheep as Miss America and threw ‘oppressive’ feminine artifacts such as bras, girdles, high-heels, makeup and false eyelashes into the trashcan” (Rampton). Janie demonstrates a similar type of protest in the story after Jody dies. Then Janie gets remarried to Tea Cake and develops herself more as a feminist through the performance of task that were considered to be masculine. Janie goes in to visit her husband on his death bed. She talks and tells him how he oppressed her and wasn’t “de Jody ah run off down de road wid”. Once Jody finally does die in front of her, Janie “tore off the kerchief from her head and let down her plentiful hair” (Hurston 87). Janie is showing her protest of the oppressive clothing pieces that Jody had her wear by taking them off and letting her true self be shown and it represents the principles of the second wave of feminism. By not wearing the “appropriate” attire for a woman, Janie is showing how she is doing everything for herself and not to please men and fulfill their gender stereotypes. When Jody dies, Janie is single and rich so many men in the town try to come and marry her. She feels that she can live without a husband. But then Tea Cake comes and she ends up marrying him and moving to the Everglades with him. Janie had to learn to adapt to the different lifestyle presented to her in the Everglades and it did not seem to......

Their Eyes Were Watching God Essay

...language and power. The reader can best see the struggle between language and power in Janie’s first two relationships. In each connection between Janie and her spouse their is a common factor, control through language. In each case, Janie is presented as inferior towards her male companion through her silence and the men’s control over Janie through language. The relationship between Jody and Janie best represents this dilemma. In the beginning of the relationship between Jody and Janie, each character is perceived as equally contributing partners in the relationship through their expression of their feelings to one another. As the plot unfolds though, Jody starts to stifle Janie’s speech, when he prevents her from talking to the people of Eatonville after he is named mayor. From that point on, Hurston displays Jody as the dominant partner, while Janie is seen as recessive and follows the commands of her husband. As Jody further takes advantage of Janie and begins to verbally harass her as a power tactic, the reader observes how Janie’s hatred of Jody stems from the suppression of her individuality. Jody expands the idea of suppressing and controlling Janie through the hiding of her hair. Janie’s hair is a symbol of her power and unconventional identity. It represents her strength and individuality through her struggles and journeys in her life. The first of Janie’s struggles is revealed in the beginning pages when the community, critiques Janie because of she wears her......

Some plastic bags of groceries that she had just purchased at the Tsawassen Safeway store broke and the groceries fell out, causing injury to her.

...also pointed out how they can improve themselves as an individual, but more as a good employee for any company or business. The characteristics of each employee interviewed varied upon their feelings about their job as well as their ability at their job. When doing each of these individuals employee assessment I noticed some of them to be lazy and not content with their job and other’s that were very motivated and dedicated workers but weren’t getting the praise they deserved as employees. For instance when I did Jody Webb’s assessment I noticed that she is satisfied with her job, a motivated worker, but she doesn’t make smart decisions. Jody tends to make quick decisions without even thinking first of the consequences or the outcome of the situation. This can be bad for a company if their ideal goal is to make good decisions. Coley Boone’s assessment was little different, as he seems like an excellent employee, he is a hard worker, dedicated to his job, but like Jody wasn’t getting the necessary praise he deserved with lowered his morale and motivation to do his job properly. As far as making decisions he did an excellent job at making smart decisions and outweighing the better choice. This type of employee will make a great manager when promotion comes in a business. Now Jeremiah Webb’s assessment was quite the opposite of the other two employees. As he is motivated about his job, but is often lazy and expects the money that is reaped from hard work to fall in lap......
