Lol, I know how you feel. :uhhuh:Tully B. said:Fight Club would be soooooo good. BUT so many people do it every year for EVERY AOS. Bloody great movie but.
I really, REALLY hate Peter Skrzynecki. A couple of his poems are alright, but there is a general motif of self-portrayed hardship that gets tiresome. Such a bloody whiner. Annoying as almighty fuck.
Montage is used at the beginning of the film where Eva is recalling her life up until where it is today - growing up, someone getting shot, her father getting taken away. You could relate that beack to belonging and how the latino's dont belong in that society and how they are being alienated by the police taking the father and locking him up.Thangquangtu said:Woops, forgot to name the moive I was talknig about lol.
Umm techniques for "Freedom Writers".

A CRUCIAL scene is the one where Mrs Gruwell is handing out the prescribed texts and one of the latino boys gets up and although he is not well known in the class, still makes an amazing speech about how he doesnt have a roof over his head yet still feels like he belongs in the class "And when i walked through these gates.... I am home." Kind of like how the minor character of Jacque in as you like it makes the "all the worlds a stage speech." lol, thats my prescribed text. haha
The camera angle goes from showing the close up of the boys face, to a close up of Mrs G and then a wide shot of the class and then to close ups of the different people in the class (a person from each race - latino, asian, etc)
The wide camera angle shows how the class has come together, the different characters have come together and the races are not segregated at the beginning of the scene. Music is also playing, but im not sure what the music is.
Also, the "Line Game" is another crucial scene, showing how the students are from different races yet still have been through the same experiences.
The scene with Anne Franks friend is another good scene.
Also, maybe have a look at the Head Teacher of english and how she is constantly fighting against the class and Mrs Gruwell.
Its been a while since I've seen the film, but its my favourite film ever!
I'm sure theres more scenes and stuff, but like I said, its been a while hahaha.
Hope I've helped and not confused you!
yeah im going to use "dead Poets Society.alcalder said:Dead Poets' Society (much of Robin Williams' serious movies are about belonging - Life According to Garp)
Good Will Hunting
Meet the Robinsons
The list could go forever.
Am I right in thinking that "Belonging" is the new "Journeys" and "Journeys" have taken one? I think that is what an English Teacher friend of mine said.
Redemption looks cool.joshoh said:Redemption - Looks at the bloods and the crips, original gangs LA.
Story of Stan Tookie Williams played by Jamie Foxx
Clockwork Orange by Stanley Kubrick
Also, I like the scene where he has the three boys walk around the compound and they end up walking in step. Then he has everyone walk and one guy doesn't because he reserves his right not to walk thus illustrating the pointAndrei01 said:yeah im going to use "dead Poets Society.
It seems really good for analysing how belonging to can ultimately lead to confromity (in that it subverts it).
The rebellion that the boys show towards the end when they stand on their desks seems like a really good scene to use in order to show how rejection of belonging can ultimatly lead to something greater (if that makes sense lol)
