Kanye West’s song ‘Blood diamond’ shows his own self conflict with the diamonds.But the sad fact remains that may it be 15 or 1, still, there is that percentage which means conflict diamonds are still being mined and that somewhere, in a dimly lit cave in Africa, blood is being used to fuel the laborers that fuel the unending conflicts that plague their nations.’ How when I know what a blood diamond is…” The music video of this song also shows how children are forced to mine the rough diamonds in small dimly lit caves.If there are no conflicts, then there would be no need for blood diamonds in the first place; outside of the mining camps and warlords running these camps, who else are involved in the blood diamond business?(2006) Blood Di...

In addition, during the film, we witness a procession of men with green blindfolds shooting with automatic weapons and chanting the words Allahu Akbar as a prelude to the revolt in the Bexhill camp.Symbolically, desperation is represented by the logo of the film above: a fetus inside one eye shedding a tear, the color red possibly reminiscent of blood.In addition, Map of the Problematique, by Muse, and Hoppípolla, by Sigur Rós, were used in commercials and trailers to promote the film but were not used for the film itself.This spirit was, moreover, taken up on the French poster of the film and in other places of the film with letters cut out as if they had been drawn using stencils.With the film premiering on Christmas Day in the US, Kee...

However, this is nowhere close to the case of Arlington Road, which ultimately kills off its protagonist, frames him, and has his child handed over to the alleged terrorists.But in the end, the similar editing techniques, plotline, and thematic elements are only the coincidence of a shared genre.Overall, while Arlington Heights may have possessed a great deal of elements popular to the Hitchcock-styled film, its ending is the final word on deciding that it is not so.Andrew O’Hehir, with his frankness and brutal word choice, appears to have jumped too quickly to a conclusion in deciding that Arlington Road was meant to mimic Hitchcock’s style.Movie critique Andrew O’Hehir suspects that this is the case with Mark Pellington’s production, A...

Prominent in the film is the glorification of Christianity at the end of the film.The film aims to remind America that the social problems it faces now is intertwined with its spiritual and moral struggle.Upon a closer look at the film, it is hypothesized that the film reflects America’s struggle with its own national identity – in relation to its history of imperialism and militarist culture, race and multiculturalism, and conservative theological roots.That the film ends there does not account for the equally brutal nature of subjugation the Natives endured under colonial rule.Hence, the theme that came out of the film was not the critique of empire as Gibson had envisioned, but the emphasis on the barbarity of “others,” and the need t...

All and all, I loved every hour of Saving Private Ryan.As a platoon movie, Saving Private Ryan is engrossing, with some sharply written conversation and brilliantly executed scenes of danger and violence.Captains are usually portrayed as rock-hard and without emotion.There are moments in this film where I thought, what was about to happen couldn’t happen in a Hollywood movie, let alone a Steven Spielberg movie and then, unbelievably, it happens.Such as, realism, formalism, and stereotypes to which built a good foundation and created a good movie.

An officer is passing though on the way to another camp, tells of how he sabotaged an ammunition train by luck using matches.The first film (released in 1953) is Stalag 17, a film about American prisoners of war being held in a German prison camp.Audiences had never seen anything like it: vaudeville routines played against spurting blood, fueled with open ridicule of authority.Some of the hilarious scenes in the movie are; they sneak a microphone under the bed of Major “Hot Lips” Houlihan, and broadcast her lovemaking to the entire camp, a tent that is pulled away from the showering Major Houlihan an attempt to settle a bet about her being a natural blonde, they drug a general and photograph him in a brothel, a Last Supper parody where a...

All together I believe that Eden Lake does strecth quite far to prove that it is a typical British Horror film because we see alot of British themed stereotypes, the typical British location, the slightly typical story line and so on.However this also contradicts what a British Horror film is because we don’t see the normal story line to a film.Whereas we see the other characters in the film such as Brett, Cooper, Paige who are in the lower class of Britain not have these luxuries.The characters within the film also show the difference between certain classes within Britain.So as the film evolves and we realise that Brett has been a sufferer of child abuse because of his father, making the audience realise this is why Brett is capable of...

The very first aspect of 70’s disasters cinema that neatly fits into camp is the weak, barebones characters the films general supply us with.A genre like the disaster cinema of the 1970’s perfectly fits into camp for three major reasons, the paper thin/stock characters, the setup/execution of the disaster itself and the hammy acting or dialog found in the movie.Perhaps the main factors that can make a genre and cycle like this turn to camp is the fact that the characters are generally paper-thin or stock, the setup/disaster can be ridiculous, and the hammy acting/dialog changes the emotions of the audience.If a film can’t be taken seriously than many audience members will find the film begins to divulge into the camp territory.Due to the...

He was then sent to a concentration camp in 1937, stretched on a rack and whipped.Using the propaganda to gain supporters and the police to keep things in order Hitler had created what he had hoped for; a country under his complete control.A revolt would have occurred without the police state though, but it was the propaganda which told the Germans that the police were fair and it permitted the Nazis to carry out their horrific acts.It was the last chance before being sent to a concentration camp or labour camp.Hitler targeted Jews on a night called ‘the night of the Broken Glass’ similar to ‘the night of the Long Knives’, following the death of a nazi official, 91 Jews were murdered, 191 synagogues were ruined, 7000 businesses destroyed...

Cultural responsiveness is evident at various points throughout the scenario and the teacher demonstrates this when she attempts to include all cultural groups in the camp concert.The teacher did, however, collaborate with a parent and invited them in to help with the preparation of the camp concert, promoting the concept of Whanaungatanga (M.O.E, 2011).In critique, I also feel that the teacher could have used the humanist approach in her classroom management skills to ensure that the Somali girls have a better understanding of what a recreational camp entails.This would have enabled me to develop a supportive relationship, perhaps giving the girls the confidence to approach me with their concerns and allowed me to alleviate their fears ...

Many French or French-speaking singers could be qualified as a camp: Amanda Lear, Armande Altaï, Arielle Dombasle, Mylène Farmer but also France Gall, Sheila or Sylvie Vartan.However, a significant number of French works, artists and cultural practices express a camp sensibility as described by Anglo-Saxon cultural critics.In 2013, Slate J. reporter Bryan Lowder described the movie Gravity as a future camp classic.For example, the movie Mommie Dearest is a classic camp thanks to its ironic interpretation of it within the gay male subculture, while the John Waters films express a camp sensibility.The concept of camp is little known and rarely used in France, whether inside or outside the gay community.

The “tragedy” and the “horrors” are finally less important to us than concern for the “normal men” who commit crimes in the belief that anything is justified in such “abnormal situation.” .The cut to the follow on scene – the one where the film argues was the turning point for Morant’s “changes” from a normal man to a “madman,” is the one in which he discovers Hunt’s “mutilated body.” The “revenge” which follows suddenly seems normal since the Boers were held accountable for his death.It never says shooting unarmed prisoners of war acceptable.The “war crimes” in the film are not presented in particularly shocking ways.The whole argument of the film is that “war changes men’s natures”, and that its barbarity makes judgement impossible.<...
