    Violence and sexuality are usually the theme for action movies. In Hitchcock's Psycho, violence is brought out as a substitute for sexuality. Norman Bates uses violence to release his sexual frustration. Two clues in the movie to support such an idea are: taxidermy and the shower murder.

Hobbies are usually regarded as innocent activities of casual interest, designed to help...

    Babylon Revisited by F. Scott Fitzgerald This Story was intriguing to me for several reasons. Fitzgerald gradually unwinds the plot, posing new questions as he goes. Charlie seems to be someone who has experienced the best as well as the worst in life and it has made him a stronger person. However, his time revisiting Paris proves how ones past can come back to haunt you. It seems this might be a fairly typical story in the era of the stock market boom and the infamous crash. In this story Fitz...

    The play I decided to write about is On Tidy Endings. The new resolution I have in mind is a more negative aspect towards both characters, which are Marion and Arthur. Arthur decided to file a lawsuit against Marion for the apartment because she wants to sell it for the apparent reason that she wants Arthur out of her life and eventually he won the case. Since Marion had HIV and she was in a depression because of losing the case, she decided to murder Arthur out of vengeance because of losing bo...

    Prisoners of Love "On Tidy Endings," Harvey Fierstein's 1987 drama about the beginning of the "Gay period" (1086) and the AIDS epidemic, focuses on two different lifestyles that are affected by the death of a loved one and the coping that goes along with it. Using a Cultural Studies approach, one can see that one's culture, background, and "value system" (Lynn, 113) play an important role in understanding and accepting the text. To understand and accept the text, one must first place it in histo...

Because his mother which is a figment of his mind or imagination dose not exist for she is dead and Norman had to have made her up. The fact that his mother might have helped him develop the split personalities, by the way she treated him might be a possibility too but he manifested his own thoughts. The idea that Norman Bates mother committed the crime seems to be irrelevant she is dead and there is no way she physica...
