Purpose: To show mastery of all the writing and critical thinking skills we have acquired this semester and to determine the progress we have made as writers and thinkers. Required Texts: The movie we will be analyzing in class ► Any two texts with clear relevance to your perspective on the movie (Think chapters in textbooks in your G.E. courses, Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology, Film Criticism--anything with relevance to the text AND your interpretation thereof. If you can employ theories from your class and weave them into your study--that would be fantastic.) Objective: In this five page paper, you are asked to conduct an analytical study of the movie we will be analyzing in class. Because this counts as a final exam, ensure you give this paper the time and attention it deserves. Far too many student averages have taken a nose-dive due to slothful, high-school work habits. Treat this assignment as you have all other take-home assignments and thoroughly incorporate the movie in each paragraph. Please note: Plot summaries of the movie will receive “NCR"/D- for a grade. Summaries can range from thematic retelling of the text to chronological, step-by-step "this, then that happens” narration. Share more thought and analysis than details. As with all literary analysis papers, assume your reader is intimately aware of all important facts. You highlight ONLY the most important ones and use them as vehicles for analysis. Some of you might benefit from formulating a prompt of your own on the text, and then a formal response that can serve as a thesis statement in the paper. I am happy to hear out both your prompts and thesis statements, but because this is your final exam, I have to step back and have you do the rest independently. Do not wait for the class to finish the movie to start executing your ideas! Each day, we will be watching enough scenes AND BRAINSTORMING PLENTY OF IDEAS for a great paper. A visit at TWC is not required. It is advised, though.

THE EFFECT OF ISOLATION ON PATRIARCHIAL FAMILY

2

It is patently clear that the movie “The Shining” depicts that isolation has a significant
influence on the patriarchal family. As well, it is heeded that there are supernatural entities which
considerably worsen these effects (Kubrick, 1980). For instance, Jack Torrence represents one of
the American males who has the responsibility of providing for his family despite the fact that
this role is affected by the aspect of isolation. Ideally, the integration of monotony, isolation, as
well as the supernatural powers lead to the insanity of Jack. In effect, the role of Jack Torrence as
the provider of the family. Based on this observation, this essay seeks to discuss the ways
through which isolation affects the patriarchal family and examine if there are forces which
exacerbate the magnitude of the effects.
One way through which isolation appears to affect the patriarchal family relates to the
development of insanity and neglection of families (Kubrick, 1980). Notably, Jack Torrence
standards out as one of the American males that have the obligation of protecting and providing
for his son and wife. As such he has made the decision of working in Overlook Hotel so that he
is able to assist his family (Kubrick, 1980). It is noted that this family ought to care for the hotel
during winter and have been compelled to stay in the mountainous region. Due to this isolation,
Jack realizes that his life is the same as that of the life that he had spent as a writer (Kubrick,
1980). The integration of monotony, isolation, creative frustration, as well as the supernatural
powers, causes the insanity of Jack. It is on the grounds of this insanity that Jack Torrence stops
carrying out his responsibilities as the provider and makes efforts of murdering his son and wife.
Notably, this insanity indicates the ideology of doppelganger. Regarding this ideology, it is...
