Improve your thesis statement based upon any innovative ideas that you have come up with. Write an introduction to contextualize that thesis. Make clear in your mind that you quote and paraphrase appropriately from the work you are analyzing refine your transitions throughout your analysis add or delete material as required to perk up maturity of points and to keep away from recurrence.
Initiate with reading about the object that is under analysis. This will facilitate you in getting familiar with the angle to follow. The overall gist, impressions, and feelings are frequently conveyed all through the initial reading.
7) I do not believe Teddy has any children because he never mentions them in his verbal narratives. To quote myself, Remember, he only mentioned his wife specifically amongst the four people that died in the fire at his apartment. Who on earth wouldn&rsquo t say that their children died in the fire as well?
Dr. Cawley mentioned some psychopharmaceuticals that Andrew or Teddy received during his treatment. The film is shot in 7565 and the plot probably took place in the era after lobotomy has been widely replaced by psychopharmaceuticals.
I have to wonder, why did you waste your time searching for a Shutter Island movie review if you didn t care about this movie? Why bother commenting at all?
So let us consider that Teddy is a pyromaniac. Teddy is thus the pyromaniac who set his apartment on fire, a fire that proceeded to kill his wife. Quite reasonably, he carries an immense amount of guilt for the death of his wife, which is why he soothes himself by saying that 8775 it was the smoke that got her, not the fire. 8776 Perhaps Teddy is not an actual Marshal. More likely, he is in reality only a World War II veteran-turned maintenance man who burned down his own apartment building. In which case, what is he doing on Shutter Island? It could be for any number of reasons. If he is just a pyromaniac, perhaps he was taken to the island the first chance they got: when he was caught for committing arson.
As a professor of media studies, I must commend Wistful Writer on his analysis. While it is not necessarily by the book and whlie it is not focused enough for an academic paper, it certainly is the most enjoyably comprehensive layman-esque analyses that I have read. It is, as claimed, backed up with plenty of evidence.
Thanks for writing and sharing that link, I ve read that and found problems with it, hence the reason for my article.
I encourage you to read more carefully. I provide many pieces of evidence that do have nothing to do with what I think of the movie: read the list of suspicious quote from the ScreenRant article:
This is not so clear. When he is getting angry at Dr Cawley for his lack of cooperation, he says, 8775 We 8767 re going to file our reports and hand it over to , 8776 fumbling with the correct government agency that would be in charge: Dr Sheehan finishes his thought, saying that the report would be given to 8775 Hoover 8767 s boys 8776 (the FBI). Unusual for a law enforcement man who 8767 s been on the job for a while, I 8767 d say. Yet earlier, he was able to identify MI5 and the OSS as intelligence agencies.
Another visual theme in Shutter Island is the white flash. It happens when Teddy is sleeping in the orderly bunk, where we first see the warden (played by Ted Levine). Teddy goes to sleep and has a crazy dream. Then he 8775 wakes up 8776 in the same room he fell asleep in and sees his wife. We see very quickly that Teddy is actually just having another dream: he 8775 woke up 8776 from one dream into another one. When he really does wake up, it 8767 s a white flash of lightning that wakes him. Later, when Teddy spends the night in the cave with Rachel Solando, he also awakes with a white flash. These white flashes are a reminder that Teddy is not experiencing true reality.
you are correct that they are saying that teddy say things that he did not say really. you questions are good ones i will have to think about this more and watch it more. thanks for writing this it is very helpful. sorry for my english is not good my friend show me this maybe i should tell him to express on this for me hahaha
ummm.. why would a highly intelligent and decorated war verteran come home and become a maintenece man and why exactly would she have given him the tie? In the lighthouse scene Laeddis claims that he is a Federal Marshall and the Dr. says.. you were but not anymore. This movie is about mental illness, not conspiracy theories!
So let s try to bring this thread out of the schoolyard where we just say No, YOU RE wrong! and into the college classroom where we respectfully point out the flaws in each other s work, shall we?
So this historical inconsistency warrants the following questions. Did Scorsese swap the signs (I assume the change was intentional because it is too obvious to be a mistake) only because the Auschwitz sign is the more recognizable one and therefore enhances the idea of the place being a concentration camp in the general population? Or did Scorsese do it to highlight the idea that Teddy 8767 s knowledge of the Dachau concentration camp is a fictional construct that is based on fragmentary information and not a firsthand account?
Some may interpret this to the benevolent reality that surrounds and traps him. This is a convenient explanation, but let 8767 s take a closer look at what water actually does in the film.
