  • Heritage Film Analysis

    Heritage films refer to a period of films, initially European, that emerged in the 1980’s and 90’s. Though there is a long list of films that are classified as ‘heritage films’, this type of motion picture is not defined as a declared genre, but rather a list of characteristics declared by the movie industry that classify these films. This paper discusses the characteristics that define a ‘heritage film’, how Tom Hooper’s film The King’s Speech represents the characteristics of a ‘heritage film’, and how The King’s Speech represents an updated version of a ‘heritage film’ in comparison to James Ivory’s film, A Room with a View. Pam Cook, author of the article, Costume Drama, declares that ‘heritage films’ are created by respected film-makers, have a large budget, sumptuous (defined as splendid and expensive looking) production values and polished mise - en – scène (defined as the costume and set design found within a film), with big name stars. They included films that are adapted from ‘popular classics’ or draw on the lives of famous artists and/or monarchs. Additionally, the film’s progress in a classical narrative format. This type of progression declares that the film will contain a plot that advances in a linear format; the development of the film is often based on character-driven action. Finally, the make-up of the film is concerned with the minute reconstruction of the past, celebrating rather than critiquing the past that is being portrayed within the film. (Cook,…

  • Consequences Of Realism In To Build A Fire, Genesis Of The Tenements

    This selection was written to describe the conditions of tenement houses, overcrowded slums that filled New York City during the late 1900’s. The first sentence of this selection states, “The first tenement New York knew bore the mark of Cain from its birth, though a generation passed before the writing was deciphered.” The author means that tenement houses were “cursed,” or were terrible creations from the very beginning, but this was ignored and not tended to for a long time. The owners of…

  • My Special Place Research Paper

    Growing up in my childhood, I never really made a lot of friends. In my early years of education, I was very sociable, but to my dismay, people just didn’t seem the friendly type. I never really did feel safe in the school district. That being said, there was only one place that I would always go to relax and get the stress of my mind, and that would be my humble abode, my home. Because I walked to school on a regular basis, I always knew where to go, even during the renovations. I mean, I could…

  • Three Principles Of Persuasion: The Paradox Of Choice

Every year at the boarding school I attended, we were required to participate in the annual inter-house sport event. This event was probably the least anticipated event all year, it was dreadful and tedious as there was nothing to look forward because there was no recognition for winners and we always had to clean up the fields after the…

  • Kniffen And Glassie: A Brief Analysis

Harris had to examine the objects inside the home to negate the incorrect perception and interpretation the whiteness of the house reveals. The same process and attention that I take in the study of the houses is the same consideration I give to the objects within the home. Once I have a comprehensive interpretation of both the objects within…

  • Plot Machines-Personal Narrative

    we arrived to Dayton it was dark. Unfortunately for us, the house were we going was not in the city but the outskirts. Once we showed up at the house, we were both pretty creped out. A really run down house in the woods, on top of a hill, no trespassing signs everywhere, and only one porch light on. It was the kind of light that is plugged in, but hanging by its wires swinging back and forth in the wind. The sunroom on the house was collapsed, only two walls were able to hold the ceiling up. One…
