The Red Jacket

By Kristin Wallace - April 15th, 2010

“Rebel really belongs entirely to Dean and his iconic red windbreaker.” – Don Willmott, Film Critic
I don’t agree with Don because he never wore the red jacket that much in the movie. Maybe like half hour of the movie he’s wearing it. Its just a jacket anyway, its not like that every time you see a red jacket you’re a “rebel” or “bad-ass”, it just means that your wearing a red jacket.

But, in the end the one that was killing everyone was in fact Norman. It was an unexpected ending but he played his part really well and I never suspected him to be the killer.

The Way it's Supposed to Be

By Kristin Wallace - May 6th, 2010

Louis Sullivan said the phrase, “form follows function”, in 1896. However, the actual quote was “ form ever follows function”. The quote came from an article called, “The Tall Office Building Artistically Considered”. It’s associated with architecture and industrial design in the twentieth century.

The Bad Kids

By Kristin Wallace - May 6th, 2010

Personally I don’t think that Antoine was a bad kid. He was just a curious kid with a messed up family life. Yes, he did steal money from his grandmother but he only did it once, that doesn’t make him a bad kid. His parents fought with him a lot and they didn’t seem to like him that much, and I think that’s why he did what he did, he was rebelling against them.

Also, the form of the photo is good because it’s almost like someone or something is sneaking out of the woods. The texture of the grass and leaves in the photo really helps with the contrast.
