Gran Torino | Task 4

Gran Torino is a movie about an old man named Walt Kowalski. His wife recently died, and he now lives alone with his dog in a neighborhood with a high population of Hmong people, which is a people from Vietnam that fought with America during the Vietnam war. Walt has an attitude towards these people but that attitude towards the Hmong changes throughout the movie.

 

At first, he has a negative outlook towards them. as he shows in the film by insulting them and how he treats the gifts he receives from the several families after he saves the neighbors daughter. Throwing them in the trash and generally not accepting them. But after he is invited to a house party with the neighbor and he gets to know them somewhat better he starts opening to them a bit more and eventually even accepts some of the gifts they bring him.

 

After Walt gets the neighbors son Toad (Thao) to help him out it shows quite well how his attitude to these people changed. At the start Walt likely despised the boy for trying to steal his car. But he decides to give the boy a chance and eventually starts forming a bond with the boy and become good friends with him, even helping Toad get a job. His behavior to the Hmong in his neighborhood is much friendlier at the end of the move than at the start.

India as an English speaking country

India was once a British colony and during that time the English language was introduced to the Indians, so they could communicate with British officials at the time. English becoming so widespread around India during the time turned It into their second official language alongside Hindu.

 

Although English is quite widespread in India there are very few that can speak I fluently, as a lot of the speakers have a heavy influence from their accent or speak partially broken English with words from Hindu thrown into the mix.

Spotlight

Task 3: The way the movie showcased investigative journalism gave me some insight in how much work goes into big cases like these. Several weeks even months of work goes into creating one in-depth case. The movie showcases the challenges a investigative team meet when trying to unveil potential controversies like the case with the catholic church.

 

Task 6: The conflict of the movie is about an investigative team that are trying to get information about a priest that was sexually abusing a child. This research led them to find more priests in the catholic church that had sexual acts with children. When the team decides to print the story, they get phone calls from several people that tell their experiences with sexual abuse from priests.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist. Book and Movie comparison

Recently I have Read The Reluctant Fundamentalist and watched the movie adaptation of it. The book and movie play out quite differently and I wanted to express my thoughts on how each of them presented the story.

 

First thing I noticed the movie doing differently was how it handled the characters and the location. It gave the American an identity as a writer that came to interview Changez. The setting was also changed quite a bit. It still took place in a restaurant/café, but the circumstances for the discussion was different. Instead of Changez coming up to the American for conversation it was changed to a interview where Changez told his story in order to convince the agents from the US to not have him as a suspect.

 

The movie also made some drastic changes closer to the end. Instead of it ending with Changez escorting the American back to his room with some people the American suspected following them. It ended up with a riot outside the building and rescue team sent to rescue the American and one the people in the crowd getting shot by the American.

 

The movie followed the story of the book for the most part with some changes closer to the ending. But it doesn’t really have the character building of the book. Erica in the movie seemed to be just a love interest for Changez very different from the important role and development she had in the book.  The movie did some things right but dropped the ball a bit at the ending. Of the two I would prefer reading the book.

The reluctant Fundamentlist – Character

The reluctant fundamentalist does not have too many major characters. There is the main character Changez who is telling the story. The unnamed American at the cafe he is telling the story to. Erica who is the love interest in changez’s story and Jim who got Changez into his workplace.

 

Changez

Changez comes off as someone that really likes to talk at the start of the book. As he does start telling the stranger a story of his life and how he came to where he is and his experiences in America. At the same time, I think he is very controlling of the situation as he is very forward with what he says to the American which strikes me as him having a very dominant personality.

Erica

Erica is a writer and a love interest in the story. She also suffers from some mental issues that stemmed from the death of her old boyfriend Chris. In the start of the book she comes off as a happy and social person. But as the story goes on her mental issues catch up with her after 9/11 and start affecting her greatly.

The American

The American so far is just a stranger that Changez decided was going to be the listener to his story. He can be looked at as sort of self-insert for the reader to immerse themselves in the book.

Jim

Jim is more a minor main character rather than a true one. He is the man that got Changez his job and I think he serves as a sort of idol and motivator for Changez.

Journalism and Democracy

Democracy is an important part of global freedom and an important aspect of democracy is ones right to say what they want. This is very important among journalists because some of them do extensive research and reveal things some groups want to remain a secret. These groups may decide that a is journalist close to reveal their secrets and get rid of them.

This is what happened to Slovakian journalist Jan Kuciak. He was found with his fiancée in their apartment, both dead with visible bullet wounds. He was suspected to be killed by a branch of the Italian mafia called ‘Ndrangheta. They are suspected because he was working on a story about ties between the mafia and the Slovak prime minister. Soon after this was reported the Slovak prime minister resigned.

eat democracies are facing. People being silenced so they can’t say what they want to say.
