Cinema and Drama Questions and Answers
In the movie I Am Sam, it is obvious fairly early on in the movie that Lucy is developing quite normally. What things do you think Sam has done as a parent that might have actually fostered her cognitive development? If the incident with the prostitute had never occurred, do you think child and family members services would have ever paid any attention to Sam and Lucy?
In a dystopian film, which is better, truth, or happiness? In dystopian films like 1948, THX, Soylent Green, The Matrix, War of The Worlds, etc., the common idea of a dystopia is shared, with human civilization in bad shape. In these conditions, do these movies portray it as better to have truth or happiness? If you know the truth you may be upset with the terrible word you have found out that you live in, and if you are ignorant to the truth you will be happy with the unrealistic life you live. Which is better? I'm trying to think of a thesis on dystopian films, and I think that the portrayal of truth over hapiness, or vice versa would be a good route, but I need some help. Any ideas on dystopian films would be much appreciated. Please Help
