The 1960's was a decade caught between euphoric, idealistic beginnings and a discordant, violent climax.

“Amadeus” was about the life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the relationship Salieri had with him. It was meant for a general audience, however, a more mature audience would understand the film better than children would. The film’s purpose was to inform the world of the life behind the legend and get a very important point across: That image and legend is not always truth. The movie is all one big flashback, really, as told to a priest by Salieri. Salieri begins with the background on he and M

Why or why not? ‘Wuthering Heights’ holds a Chinese box structure in that the majority of it is a narrative within a narrative. Whilst this causes us to question the nature of bias within the novel, and the accuracy in the distribution of information, it also adds to the complexity of the storyline and the mystery that the characters in Wuthering Heights exude. Bronte appears to present objective observers, in an att
