Warren Buffet - Warren Buffet Warren Buffet of Berkshire Hathaway and His Investment Strategy Warren Buffet is arguably the most successful investor of all time. His initial investment of $105,000 in the beginning, ultimately grew into a $16 billion dollar fortune made from his trading company, Berkshire Hathaway. If you had invested $10,000 in Berkshire Hathaway when he took over the company in 1965, it would be worth $22,000,000 today. Warren’s stockpicking prowess however, is what he is know for and is also why Berkshire Hathaway has had a returning average of 24% a year for the last three decades....

...Giancarlo Diaz 10/23/12 English 101 Rough Draft Tom Twyker is a world famous filmmaker. He is best known for his two films “Run Lola Run” and the film adaptation of the book “Perfume” by Patrick Suskind. These two films that he wrote, produced, and directed have won many awards worldwide. His newest release “Cloud Atlas” is set to come out in theaters this winter, but luckily for me, I got to see a prescreening of the film earlier this summer. As a result, I had one crazy night. One day during the summer, my good friend Daniel gave me a call. He called to invite me to a prescreening of “Cloud Atlas.” I said yes without having any idea who’s in the film and who made it. I had no clue that Tom Twyker, one of my favorite filmmakers, was involved in the film. I was just happy to go see a free movie screening. When I went online to do some research on the film we were going to watch. I found that Tom Twyker’s “Cloud Atlas” is an adaptation of a novel by the same name from the author, David Mitchell. It is an exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution. I was so psyched to see Tom Twyker’s name attached to the film. On the day that the prescreening was showing, I met with Daniel at his house. We printed out the tickets online, and then quickly left the house to drive to the movie theater in...

However, he finds it extremely hard to live under social pressure that he faces at home and at school. Ludovic’s family tries to ignore his female-oriented games at first. As Ludovic’s mother Hanna (Michele Laroque) says that at the age of seven he was like any other child searching for his identity and individuality.

Run Lola Run Analysis

...film together. This what makes a film artistic. Unfortunately Tom Tykwer’s Run Lola Run does not make the cut as a successful film due to the fact that it leaves the audience in confusion the characters are underdeveloped, the film is trying too hard to use different art forms that ultimately become a jumbled mess, and the plot doesn’t really make sense if it is just watched from beginning to end. Characters are very important in film, they are what make the movie. Characters t are memorable and enjoyable loathsome and...

...RUN NR. 1 Begin Chapter 10-- First ambulance driver, distracted, almost hits plate glass window. Lola runs past.  Lola Running Manni at window Split Screen (first time we see this technique) Manni POV with Lola in distance / Lola POV with Manni in distance All in the same shot!!!! Skim when he is starting robbery Then magical scene at the window, because he could not hear her voice in reality—but her voice gets through. They have a conversation. Will you help me? Can’t we just get out of here? You see the shit I’m in. Why didn’t you wait for me? I did. You got here too late. Then torch song by Dinah Washington as they escape the bank. No other sound! Circling camera, like a roulette wheel, as they are trapped. Why does Manni choose to throw the bag high into the air—and have such a mean expression on his face? His CHOICE leads to cop firing gun accidentally because cop is distracted.

Run Lola Run Essay

...what will happen in their near future. According to Run Lola Run by Tom Tykwer, the movie shows that love, fate, and death can lead to unexpected changes throughout a person's life. In a person’s eye, love is based on sacrificing their own lives for another loved one, so that their loved one would not be harmed by future events. An evidence for that would be that in the three different scenarios,...

Run Lola Run

...The film ‘Run Lola Run’ directed by Tome Tykwer depicts various themes associated with mise-en-scene. Each theme provides unique elements to the two major components of mise-en-scene; design and composition. Every scene is characterized by urgency, and by creating this mood, the film is able to convey a feeling of expectation through hinting at things to come. It is through expectation that, time, setting and character relationship are able to govern much of what unfolds during the course of the film. Time seems to be a major reoccurring theme in Run Lola Run. The film emphasizes time constraint with every scene. Among other themes, the effect of time interaction is depicted in photographs of future events to take place in the lives of the people Lola encounters. The attention paid to time is evident in the constant reference to clocks; and the scenes depicting Lola running around the city only add to the pressure of making the twenty minute deadline given to Lola’s boyfriend Manni by his boss Ronni. The fast paced music compliments the tension faced by the Lola and Manni and grabs the viewer’s attention. The upbeat music never lets the audience forget the main characters goal of coming up with 100,000 marks within the allotted twenty minute time span. One specific instance occurs when a close up of Lola’s face as she’s thinking about various people to ask for help cuts to a shot of a ticking clock. The sound of the clock along with a visual of her father shaking his......

Run Lola Run

...In the film Run Lola Run the flow of the movie relies heavily on how quickly the shots move from one thing to another. The editing in the first ten minutes alone conveys to the audience that this film will revolve around rushing around, going fast, and as the title suggests, running. The fast moving editing techniques are well used to express the importance of time and how it matters. The opening scene is an array of memories about what just happened mixed with the current time frame of what is happening. The arrangement of these shots and the pace at which they evolve helps set the audience in a mood of urgency and gloom. The montage sequence links the story Manni is telling Lola, showing it as a single, continuous episode. Each cut falls perfectly into line with the dialogue as it is spoken allowing the audience further insight to the story line. The editing done is very precise and builds to a climax that really pulled me in. The tempo increases and increases, building a heightened sense of desperation. Then suddenly Lola screams and the action comes to a screeching halt. A quick cut to a turtle crawling across the floor emphasizes just how slowed down everything just became. The sounds put each cut on another level of amazement. At the 5:08 mark a heavy bass, techno genre song starts to play quietly. Between cuts you start hearing a slight noise like something is rushing by your ear. The continuity of each of their voices as they go from their location to the others,...

Movie Analysis: Boyhood And Stand By Me

...For the family life cycle assignment, I chose to watch Boyhood and Stand by Me and both were very interesting to watch. The fact that Boyhood was filmed over twelve years was fascinating to observe and to be able to watch the main characters grow throughout the movie and watch the transition of each life stage was also very interesting and informative. Specifically, I chose Boyhood as the movie for this project because it was filmed over such a long period of time and I thought this would be the perfect movie to help describe the first three stages of the life cycle. When the movie first began Mason was six years old and when it ended he was a little over eighteen years old, which shows the ideal times of development through the stages. Stand...

The Bard & Co - Book Review

...THE BARD & CO Book Review - The Bard & Co: Shakespeare’s Role in Modern Business Editors – Jim Davies, John Simmons & Rob Williams Published – Cyan Books Year – 2007 Place – London No author perhaps has had the kind of influence Shakespeare has had on our lives in different forms. This book is another example of Shakespeare’s influence, this time on the business world of today. Twenty six contemporary writers have paired with a Shakespeare play and one of the lead actors of the First Folio list to give us this delightful new insight of the play and the role. The book is a delightful collection of essays on Shakespeare’s role in contemporary business world. That we have very little biographical sketch to go by demands that “imagination has had to work harder than memory”. And given the “breadth, vivacity, wit and life” of Shakespeares’ plays and their performances, one cannot help but imagine that those actors would be chuckling in sotto voce behind their masks, at our attempt “to capture some sense of their lives and their contribution to the world” It is fitting that a book on Shakespeare’s role in modern business should be introduced by Dominic Dromgoole, the artistic Director of Globe Theatre. According to him, the theatre actor is the most impermanent of all artistes, considering that once a play is over, there is no remanence of his work except the printed “dramatis personae at the beginning of the published play”. He bows in obeisance to that “mysterious...
