There does not seem to be any loopholes or faulty pipes, There Will Be Blood is just a solid film. It is entertaining, even if it seems to be a slow in the beginning. You would watch this by yourself or with a group of friends if Netflix and chill wasn’t working out. The film does the drama genre good justice, and anyone willing to watch a bloody drama will be pleased. At the end though, is when it really starts to get good. Sunday visits Plainview one last time in a dear cry for help, it seeming that “God” could not spare his loose change for the worshiper. Of course, Plainview will not give him any money and forces Sunday to make a fool out of himself. Plainview explains to Sunday what drainage means, using the famous quote, “I drink your milkshake” as a childish metaphor. That is the best scene in the whole movie, without doubt. It really shows the merciless hatred that Plainview has for anyone that comes in between him and the oil. Remember that Daniel Plainview is an oil man and it is a family business. Remember that blood may be thicker than water, but oil is thicker than both of

    Truman Capote explores the idea of victimization in his renowned American novel In Cold Blood. The Clutters are the most apparent victims, in which they all were brutally murdered in their own home. Without Capote’s depiction of the events that let up to that heinous crime, they would be known as the only casualties. In writing this novel, Capote portrays the two murders, Dick Hickock and Perry Smith, as victims as well; not of a homicide, but of life’s circumstances. Dick was born mentally handicapped and Perry was physically abused as a child. These childhood conditions are allegedly what led the two men to commit the murder of four innocent people.…

    What does one gain from murdering a family? Capote wrote, “Then I aimed my gun. The room just exploded. Went blue. Just blazed up” (244). In Truman Capote’s “In Cold Blood,” four shots to four heads occurred in the Clutter home in the isolated city of Holcomb, Kansas on November 15, 1959. The main characters are the Clutter family, and two men named Dick and Perry. Capote’s novel “In Cold Blood” illustrates the murder of a family and the case to capture the suspects, how mental illness/psychological states control the actions of individuals, the objective yet soothing style of his writing, and an implication on how Capote views the deaths and the death penalty.…

    Based on the speech " I am prepared to die " by Nelson Mandela to be an insider or an outsider is to experience both worlds of oppression in South Africa . "The lack of human dignity experienced by Africans is the direct result of the policy of white supremacy " this quote shows that to be an outsider in a heavy population of white Africans does not receive equality factors due to that human. Whites tend to regard Africans as a separate breed : hard labor or small things such as cleaning things. Nelson Mandela was an icon to some of the black Africans because he symbolized equality and peace although some chose violence over peace many did not fully understand Mandala's idea . Nelson Mandela wanted ever…

    In Cold Blood

    In Cold Blood; a wonderful mystery novel written by Truman Capote that incorporates mind-boggling suspense and brutal detailing, I believe he did achieve his goal to be both objective and sympathetic. Capote gave not only the detailed account of Perry Smith 's and Dick Hickock 's childhoods but also the murder of the Clutter family. Smith 's childhood was very problematic and scarred by years of abuse, making us feel as if he committed the murder because of his sorrow past. “Perry had on several occasions run off, set out to find his lost father, for he had lost his mother as well, learned to 'despise ' her; liquor had blurred the face, swollen the figure of the once sinewy, limber Cherokee girl, had 'soured her soul ', honed her tongue to the wickedest point, so dissolved her self-respect that generally she did not bother to ask the names of the stevedores and trolley-car conductors and such persons who accepted what she offered without charge... Consequently, as Perry recalled, 'Iu was always thinking about Dad, hoping he could come take me away..." (Capote 161) This passage offers a glimpse into Perry 's childhood. He never had the solid upbringing or happy childhood, he was constantly miserable and in search of a father to save him from his drunken mother. This passage is meant to build sympathy toward Perry and to show that he suffered throughout his life. When he came to the Clutters they represented the life that he had always wanted, the life he hoped his father would bring him to, and the life he never had. We have pity for his unfortunate past when reading about how Perry has these recurring dreams, in which he is rescued from danger by yellow parrot, who “wings him away to paradise." By the end of the book, however, we become aware of some of Dick’s own insecurities: his failure to achieve financial security and support his first wife, Carol, and their three children, and his sexual interest in young girls, both of which he recompense for with his…

    The understanding of blood spatter patterns is not a widely recognized forensic practice. Bloodstain pattern interpretation (BPI) is commonly used in murder investigations, but could be utilized in everything from simple assault to mass murders if the number of trained professionals increased. BPI can reveal critical information into reinventing a given crime scene. Everything from the number of blows, stabs or shots a victim was given, the movement that was undergone by the victim and assailant after bloodshed began, position of objects at the crime scene and the type of weapon, if any, that was used can be uncovered.…

    Can murderers be justified by their actions and motives? There was surely a motive behind the murders of the Clutter family. Dick Hickock wanted to rob the family, but Perry Smith’s intention was yet unidentified. The Clutter case had become one of the most mysterious incidents that Kansas had ever encountered. It took many brilliant detectives from all around the country to solve this curious case. Countless numbers argued that the criminals were cold-blooded and that they deserved to be punished. Their actions couldn’t be justified; even the courts said so. But were the courts and the majority of the others discriminating against Dick and Perry? Apparently, Capote thought that the justice system was flawed and unfair on regarding this case.…
