Guillermo Del Toro loves outcasts and monsters in his work.Film director Guillermo del Toro describes Frankenstein as "the quintessential teenage book", noting that the feelings that "You don't belong. You were brought to this world by people that don't care for you and you are thrown into a world of pain and suffering, and tears and hunger" are an important part of the story. He adds that "it's an amazing book written by a teenage girl. It's mind-blowing." Professor of philosophy Patricia MacCormack says that the Creature addresses the most fundamental human questions: "It's the idea of asking your maker what your purpose is. Why are we here, what can we do?" On November 5, 2019, the BBC News listed Frankenstein on its list of the 100 most influential novels.
Yeah I think the target audience has varied and also the people writing has varied a little bit. If you go back a long way I think it was mostly to emphasise moral lessons and ideals and now it's more about escapism and self soothing and expressing fears, but the morality is still there too. But yeah I dunno.@Persephone The Dread Hmm yeah that's interesting too about the glut of redemption arc stuff. Guess more people are feeling alienated as you say, and maybe "debased" somehow and wanting to feel cleansed or at least heroic? I had the banal thought that stuff in the past was all the aristocracy writing for itself, now the stories are by and for the oppressed masses. OR they are still productions of the elite meant to keep us diverted as we roll in the muck and the mire? OR I am overthinking and making stuff up.
Yeah you know and it shows.She stopped modeling when she was 17, and worked as a waitress in a retirement community. Seyfried took vocal lessons, studied opera, and trained with a Broadway coach while still a teen. She began acting as an extra in the daytime drama television series Guiding Light. From 2000 to 2001, she portrayed the recurring character Lucy Montgomery on the CBS soap opera As the World Turns. She played Joni Stafford on the ABC soap All My Children from 2002 to 2003.
That's ridiculous though isn't it? Why would you assume someone decent at acting would just naturally be that way? It doesn't apply generally lol does it? It's an odd assumption people make about creative fields (I noticed classes in creative subjects were the worst taught in my high school and I think it's partly because of this general attitude,) but there are people who for example are absolutely **** at drawing but realise you can practice and then they've shown where they started vs where they ended up and they weren't naturally gifted but not everyone is good at self teaching.Al Pacino went to acting school, as shocking as it might sound! Not too many people would expect that someone as talented as him ever went to an acting class because it seems like his acting skills, so naturally. He revealed that he was able to go to acting school for the experience and he was able to practice in front of an audience. He said that it required a certain amount of commitment. Al Pacino is certainly one of the biggest actors in this day and age... he’s been at it for decades!
