    to life on the screen, and allow the audience to relate to that character’s emotional state. Additionally, there are instances where the film music tries to do the opposite and play off of another character, and against the protagonist’s inner thought and feelings, but still allows for the protagonist to express themselves fully on the screen. Such is the case of the film, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. The majority of the music in this film, specifically the opening of the film, is the antithesis of what Gilbert is actually feeling personally.

  • The Pros And Cons Of Paid Surrogacy

    Paid surrogate motherhood has become a subject undergoing intense research and scrutiny in recent years because of multiple cases, including baby M and many others.

To start I will defend paid surrogacy,…

  • Gender Stereotypes In Peter Pan By J. M. Barrie

    “Stereotypes do exist, but we have to walk through them.” This quote once said by an American actor, Forest Whitaker, supports the idea that stereotypes which define a person’s gender are incorrect in reality. In these gender roles men are confident and calm during difficult situations, but in reality this is untrue and men are not always confident in tragic situations and sometimes act irrationally. In society the perfect man should not be able to sew because a woman’s job to do housework, like…

  • The Innovator's Dilemma Essay

    One key lesson I learned from this course is that companies focusing on both sustaining and disruptive innovations can become successful industry leaders. In Chapter 7 of The Innovator 's Dilemma, Harvard professor Clayton Christensen expounds upon the power of disruptive innovation, which arises in what industry incumbents have overlooked as “unattractive or inconsequential markets” (Christensen). These types of innovations can, over time, expand and capture more market share, displacing titans…

  • Analysis Of Interpreter Of Maladies By Jhumpa Lahiri

    The Cultural Divide In Interpreter of Maladies, Jhumpa Lahiri emphasizes the divide between Western and Hindu culture through contrasting imagery of the sari and revealing clothing worn by Mrs. Sen, Mrs. Das, and Mala in the stories “Mrs. Sen’s”, “Interpreter of Maladies”, and “The Third and Final Continent”.

  • Klosterman's Theory Of Voyeurism

    It is fascinating to find that things that apparently seem to be so different can be developed in such way that they sustain the same point of view. If we think about the career of a very tall, basketball player; people attraction to voyeurism; the career of a country music singer who beats records in discs’ selling, and the use of laugh tracks in comedy sitcom, it looks like there can not be a strong connection between them. Now if we consider that the public is looking for this basketball…
