Mid Term Film to Fiction

1. A static character is a character which does not change during the course of a story. Sam Spade is a static character because by the end of the book The Maltese Falcon, Spade still seeks his own type of justice and he still retains within him a detachment to the world as seen when he has the police take Brigid away at the end.
Another character that can be viewed as static is Stevens from Remains of the Day. Although towards the middle and end of the book, Stevens appears to start regretting the decisions he had made, by the end he has reverted back to his static nature. Although I think he is a flexible character in one sense, he is static because he is the same at the beginning as he is at the end.
Chris McCandless is another static character. He is certainly a round character in the fact that he has a deep, multifaceted personality. However, he is static because he retains his idealism throughout the story about living in the wild.

2.Kasper Gutman says this line to Sam Spade in the Maltese Falcon, directed by John Huston. The line is important because Gutman actually enjoys the company of Spade. However, this lines shows just how precious the Falcon is to Gutman. He had been searching for it seventeen years and its worth, even half, he said, would have Spade calling him a liar. So he had no reserves in killing a man, one he liked, for the Maltese Falcon.

3.Chris McCandless' journey structured the movie in such a way as to reveal parts of how the story ends. In the very beginning, we see McCandless being driven to the edge of a road in Alaska and start trekking through the snow. However, we're then informed of exactly why he ended up there, or the catalyst of what started the journey to Alaska. Everything in between solidified his reasoning for going to Alaska. It showed us how he hated modern life (when he's in the city), did not want to be held down by a job or be stationary in life, no matter how secure he would be (at the farm)
