The play was not an emotional play, but an intellectual play. It caused the viewer to think about the existentialist nature of Brecht's writing and the underlying meaning of the play. Although I have studied existentialism and followed the play intently, I still could not fully understand what Brecht was trying to say through Baal. M...

  • Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

    Response Paper I have been a fan of martial arts movies since the late Bruce Lee so I figured Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, even though it was the winner of four academy awards, would just be another attempt to make a poor example of a kung fu movie that lacked culture and poor acting.

Eastwood has crafted a very hard movie to sit through, with its very limited comedic relief and depressingly dark atmosphere.

There are many flaws with this production and the directors views of how the events happened. Hamlet was acted out very well in this production. There a...
