    In order to fully understand a serial killer and murderer, one must be able to examine them personally. We must be able to look into their past and see what shaped them into who they are as a person. Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka were a married couple that committed heinous crimes together. They would kidnap girls before raping them, and often times, killing them together. Paul was a serial rapist before meeting Karla. However, none of his victims were found dead before her. He was the rapist, but she was the one that pulled the trigger, metaphorically. What made them this way? In the case of this couple, there were many crucial points in their lives that caused them to become the hardened individuals that we know them to be today. Whether these points were caused by family issues or issues within their own psychological development is a crucial point in establishing who they are as well. When discussing the turning points that led to Paul becoming a criminal you must first delve into his family, his young life, and his backstory.

This most likely led to some resentment on the part of his mother due to the conditions of her pregnancy. His mother was not a…

    1. Would you agree that Beckett’s Waiting for Godot perfectly encapsulates all the uncertainties of modernity? Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot belongs to the Theatre of the Absurd. The absence of a meaningful plot, of objective dialogues and of absolute certainty is the state of absurdity. Beckett utilizes absurdity to play around with the concept of existential nullity which saw man trapped in a hostile world. Human life is meaningless and this created a sense of alienation, despair and…

    In this film, Laura (1944) we are introduced to a group of corrupt and fittingly shady upper-class social order types.
