Read Chapter 7 in Timothy Corrigan’s book A Short Guide to Writing About Film, Mark Conrad’s essay “Reservoir Dogs: Redemption in a Postmodern World” on pp. 101-116 in your text The Philosophy of Neo-Noir, and Greg Tuck’s essay “Laughter in the Dark: Irony, Black Comedy and Noir in the Films of David Lynch, the Coen Brothers and Quentin Tarantino,” pp. 152-167, in your text Neo Noir edited by Mark Bould, Kathrina Glitre and Greg Tuck, and my essays “The Nature of Surrealism” and “Ultra Violence in Neo-Noir Film” in Documents; then watch Quentin Tarantino’s neo-noir films Reservoir Dogs (1992), Pulp Fiction (1994), and Kill Bill Vols.1 and 2 (2003-2004) and write a double-spaced 3-4 page Critical Essay (CE-3) in which you compare the way the surreal images and use of ultra violence in these four films demonstrate/reveal how the physical and emotional cruelty, suffering, and brutality experienced by those who do not conform to the “norms” established by the dominant ideology of traditional realism precludes them from living “normal” or “real” lives as “real” people — again, see my essays “Ultra Violence in Neo-Noir Film” and “The Nature of Surrealism” in Documents for more on this subject. This is what my professor wrote, the things my prof mentioned will be 3/3 and half pages long, I need you to seperate this questions from the essay that I am going to mention belove, but it is related and those has to be 1 page. Again, I need you to seperate those two things with a title, but they are the same topic. Thanks The great physisist Stephen Hawking, who died recently, once said, “The opposite of knowledge is not ignorance; it is the illusion of knowledge.” Neo-noir film exposes the illusion of knowledge that is the basis for traditional realist thinking. The director Quentin Tarantino challenges the illusion of knowledge of traditional realist thinking in his films by presenting an existentialist world view that reveals the way the patriarchal social order diminishes the individual freedom and personhood of the men or women being portrayed in his films, exposing the illusion of knowledge/reality that people who hold this world view live with. One example of this is in the opening scene of Reservoir Dogs when each of the men who will participate in the jewel heist is forced to give up his real name and identity and take a new name like Mr. Brown, Mr. White, Mr. Pink, etc. that hides who they really are and gives them a new identity based on their “color,” a superficial identity, which matches their superficial identity in this new world/view. What I would like you to do in this forum is select one of the three Tarantino films you have watched so far and tell me what other examples you have found in this film that demonstrate the way traditional realist thinking diminishes the individual freedom and personhood of the men or woman (as in the case of “The Bride” in Kill Bill), and how this example challenges traditional realist thinking
