    On September 30th I saw the preview of the production God of Carnage. It was written by Yasmina Reza and directed by Siena alumni, Shayne Peris. It was shown in the Beaudoin Theater in Foy Hall at Siena College. The play is about two married couples. The child of one of the couples hurt the child of the other one. They decide to meet to discuss what to do about the situation. What starts as a calm discussion, turns into a very heated debate. It turns into a very crazy evening for the two couples. I think that the purpose of the play is to show some great entertainment that includes a good amount of humor. The play has an interesting story, and it is funny to watch all of it unfold. As funny as the play was, there was a lot of serious situations…

    God of Carnage is an undivided play. I disagree with Archer, in the case of this play, that lacking act divisions is a problem. I think this argument can change from play to play, but for God of Carnage specifically, there are several points I can think of to defend Reza's decision. Firstly, the play itself is too short to be divided into acts. Reza also neglects shorter divisions such as scenes and I think this is because the narrative of the flimsy guise of sophistication, the destruction of…

    fought, until his last breath. He was cheeky, due to his thrashing accomplishments. Every bloodshed won, was not only devoted to his king but his God as well, ”I’d have been dead at once, and the fight finished, the she-devil victorious, if our Father in Heaven had not helped me,” (1655). He was devoted to few, but many devoted him. My almighty, dear Beowulf, devote to us all, as we shall. Hungry for zealously, every pugnacious was followed by a much greater strive. Victory after victory, his…

    REVIEW OF HACKSAW RIDGE: Good war-films can be very disturbing to watch. The dramatic realism of modern digital effects spares little and many audiences will find Hacksaw Ridge one of the most violent sensory assaults that can be experienced in a cinema. If it were not a true story that celebrates an unusual hero the film could have been accused of a glamourous display of unrelenting carnage. The film plays in two halves: the early life and romance of Army Medic Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield)…

    He is someone who is killing indiscriminately and is disobedient to his maker. The wretch after performing his misdeeds beseeches his 'God ' that "I ought to be thy Adam" but instead he is the "fallen angel" who is cast away for not adhering to the rules of society and rebelling against his creator. This reminds one of the 17th century poem by John Milton where Lucifer who was created by God is banished from heaven because he disobeys God and refuse to bow down to his commands. Lucifer as well…
