“I don’t get it,” Billy said, scrunching up his eyebrows and squinting his eyes. He looked about as pensive as a ten year old could, leaning forward as he sat on the blue trunk of the Honda. The brick school building off in the distance held his gaze as it blocked his view of the sun fading into the horizon. “Billy, I told you,” Cole said, eyes closed with his head resting on the back window next to his younger brother. “I can’t take you with me.” “But I thought you were gonna.” “I said I’d come back eventually. When you’re a little older.” “That’s stupid.” Billy turned to stare at Cole like he wanted to say something else but changed his mind. He switched his attention back to the school and the sky that framed it, all pink and orange and blue. He liked it, but Cole didn’t. Cole always said the sunset didn’t mean anything if it was still over Carter, Ohio. Carter just stayed Carter no matter what color the sky was. They didn’t look much alike. Billy was a bit of a chubby kid, with a puffed-up face and short black hair. The hair was about the only thing they had in common, and even then Cole’s was curly. Cole was seventeen, but the stubble made him look older. He never seemed to wear anything but band T-shirts and torn blue jeans with pockets big enough to stash a packet of cigarettes. Billy ran around in shorts whether it was mid-summer like it was now or the dead of winter. “I don’t think it’s

At a very young age of eight, David Fincher’s passion for cinema grew when he was inspired by the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969). Born in 1962 Denver, Colorado, David Fincher moved to Ashland, Oregon in his teens, where he graduated from Ashland High School. During high school, he directed plays, designed sets, and managed lighting after school. One summer, he and a friend attended the Berkley Film Institute’s summer program, where he hoped to learn film as a true art form but instead was taught the technical production. Either way he was happy to engage is this and as his early film industry career started, he was a production assistant at his local television news station. Years went by as he directed propaganda films followed by becoming a well-known music director until his first movie feature debut Aliens 3 in 1992. However, the American director David Fincher didn’t become a modern 21st century visionary until his creation of the film Se7en (1995). The huge success from this film started Fincher’s popularity in the film industry. From there he continued to make ironic movies we know today such as: Fight Club (1999), Zodiac (2007), The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008), The Social Network (2010), Gone Girl, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

In his sophomore film, Julien Donkey-Boy (1999), director Harmony Korine tunes in to the psychotic perspective of Julien (Ewan Bremner) – a suburban schizophrenic with raisin-black eyes and detachable dentistry – and his almost equally grotesque family, in a disorderly smear of violence, incest, and finally, tragedy. The film 's fragmented narrative structure, with its grainy and hand-held visual style, shudders on to the screen in a fusillade of discursive vignettes, that reflect, not only the digital dexterity of its director, but the haunting psychosis of its titular protagonist. It is the inarticulate jumble of Julien 's psychology which is the organizing principle of the film. And, it is precisely how we as viewers identify with this character and become complicit in his pathological perspective which this essay will continue to explore.
Sunshine was pouring out from in between the buildings, casting shadows all around Ponyboy and the gang as they walked to Pony’s school. They were taking their time walking down the streets and for the first time they all were really seeing what was all around them. Memories were surfacing in their minds showing them what it all meant to them. With every step they took on the sidewalk they remembered a different memory as if they were walking down memory lane. Ponyboy didn’t think it was possible for him to be walking down this street for the last time as a high school student, but he had gone through the years with great grades that earned him many scholarships.

Sabina Berman is a notable and critically acclaimed Mexican playwright. Berman’s notable work includes her first published play, Yankee (1979). In Adam Versényi’s translation of Yankee, Berman explores the relationship between the individual and identity. Through the three main characters—Bill, Alberto, and Rosa—we see the continual conflict they face as they aspire to achieve their respective objectives: to feel nurtured and loved, to have peace and quiet, and to feel loved and acknowledged. But it is Berman’s interjection of juxtapositions that forces us to analyze the relationship between the main characters. More specifically, Berman focuses on the impact Bill has as an intruder, and how he highlights the national identity incompatibilities between North American and Mexican cultures, to expose the serious social and political problems between the nations.

When Billy was still a child his mother remarried a guy named William Antrim but she shortly died of Tuberculosis. “Antrim didn’t want the burden of raising two small boys, so he separated them and placed them in foster homes” (Brothers). “At the age of 14, the smooth-cheeked, blue-eyed McCarty was forced to find work in a hotel, washing and waiting tables at the restaurant” (“Old”).
