shawshank 92%

Rebecca Daly   Development of Film  Research Paper  5/1/14     Shawshank Redemption: A Reflection of its Time    Shawshank Redemption ​ is a 1994 prison drama directed by Frank Darabont. The film was  adapted from a novella written by Stephen King called ​ Rita Hayworth and Shawshank  Redemption.​  The story was published in his 1982 from King’s collection ​ Different Seasons,  subtitled ​ Hope Springs Eternal. Shawshank ​ stars Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman, Bob Gunton,  and many other talented actors. This film is a reflection of its period in two ways; it perfectly  exemplifies what effect the rise of cable TV and videos had on the film industry, and is a mirror  to social issues at the time revolving around religion and prison systems.  Shawshank ​ takes place in 1947 Maine and follows the story of a banker named Andy  Dufresne who is wrongfully accused of murdering his wife and her lover. He is given two life  sentences and sent to off to Shawshank Prison. Although he has trouble when he first arrives  because of his cold and standoffish demeanor, he begins to make friends with an inmate named  Red who runs a “business” in Shawshank where he smuggles certain items from the  outside­cigarettes, alcohol, magazines, etc. Andy asks Red to get him a rock hammer so he can  practice his hobby of rock sculpting. Over the first few years in Shawshank, Andy becomes good  friends with Red and a few other men, although he also runs into some serious trouble with some  other inmates called “The Sisters” who rape, beat, and harass him regularly. However, Andy’s  luck changes after the chief guard Byron Hadley discovers that Andy is an extremely intelligent  and talented banker. Andy starts to give financial help to the Warden and the guards and he  begins to become very favored in Shawshank.​  ​ To help Andy out, Hadley and some other guards  beat up the leader of The Sisters so badly he is left paralyzed and has to transfer to a different  prison. Andy continues to work for the Warden as well as significantly improve the prison’s  library. Over the years, he witnesses an enormous amount of cruelty and corruption among the  guards and the Warden especially. Eventually, Andy decides to escape Shawshank by crawling  through a tunnel hidden by his Rita Hayworth poster that he had been carving in the wall with his  rock hammer for the past fifteen years. He brings the Warden’s paperwork and clothes in a bag,  and the next morning goes to a bank to take out money under a false identity. Andy sends a letter  to the newspaper exposing the corrupt practices of Shawshank and leaves for Mexico where Red  meets him after he finally gets paroled.  Starting in 1975 with the release of ​ Jaws​ , the film industry began to move away from the  New Hollywood age and onto the high grossing films of the Blockbuster. Blockbusters were all  about the theme of good vs. evil and heroes (who were always white) and villains (who were  almost always of some other ethnic background). Blockbusters strived to put on a huge spectacle  and be something that the whole family could enjoy. These films were vastly different than the  previous ones of New Hollywood which were more complex and required more engagement  than just sitting in front of a screen watching a bunch of special effects and lavish spectacles.  People began to figure out that through synergy, films can bring in huge amounts of revenue.  Studios began to be integrated with media conglomerates so the number of companies that  controlled the media became smaller and smaller. According to author of The Media Monopoly  Ben H. Bagdikian:  “In 1983, fifty corporations dominated most of every mass medium and the biggest media  merger in history was a $340 million deal. … [I]n 1987, the fifty companies had shrunk to  twenty­nine. … [I]n 1990, the twenty­nine had shrunk to twenty three. … [I]n 1997, the biggest  firms numbered ten and involved the $19 billion Disney­ABC deal, at the time the biggest media  merger ever”  The film industry was becoming more of an industry than ever, and less of an outlet for creative  expression and innovation. As the 90’s began, high budget blockbusters were still extremely  prominent in the film industry, although indie films were also gaining notoriety. Directors like  Quentin Tarantino began producing extremely successful indie flicks such as ​ Pulp Fiction,  which was nominated for Best Picture along with S​ hawshank​  at the 1995 Academy Awards  (although both films lost to ​ Forrest Gump​ ). ​ Shawshank ​ did not in any way resemble the  blockbuster; it presents itself in a slower, quieter fashion and is a very clever film with a lot of  underlying messages. It requires a higher level of attention and one may need to watch it more  than once to pick up on all of its undertones. It was a low budget film that cost around 25 million  dollars, and was directed by a relatively new director. The film did not seem very appealing­ who  would want to go to the theaters and sit through a 2 ½ hour prison drama? There were virtually  no women in the entire cast, no huge Hollywood actors, no exciting special effects or intense  action scenes.​  Shawshank ​ failed to even make back its budget, grossing around 18 million at the  box office initially. Although it was nominated for seven Academy Awards, it was completely  overshadowed by ​ Forrest Gump​  and ​ Pulp Fiction.​  ​ Shawshank​  was a true underdog. However,  word of mouth began to create buzz for the film, and thanks to a shift in the media industry  Shawshank ​ made a triumphant comeback.  It is because of the rise of cable TV, videos, and the internet that ​ Shawshank ​ eventually  gained enormous popularity years after it was released. In the 80’s, the number of cable networks  began to steadily increase until the 90’s where they suddenly rose at an enormous rate. Cable  technology improved and direct broadcast satellite television provided viewers with more  channels. By the late 90’s, 98% of homes in the U.S. had one or more television sets that were  usually on for several hours a day. Ted Turner sold the rights to ​ Shawshank​  to his own network,  TNT, for a considerably lower price. Because of this, the station was able to play the film very  often, and made​  Shawshank ​ part of its “New Classics” campaign. Thanks to IMDB and other  websites that emerged dedicated to spreading the word about ​ Shawshank​ , its popularity  continued to grow. Warner Brothers shipped 320,000 rental copies of the film to video stores all  over the U.S., and it became the most rented film of 1995. In​  ​ 1999, The Wall Street Journal  Published an article called ​ Shawshank’s Redemption, How a Movie Found an Afterlife. ​ The story  explained that even though ​ Shawshank ​ won no Oscars and initially received mixed reviews and  little hype, many people regard it as one of the best movies ever made. In an IMDB survey of  thousands of people, ​ Shawshank ​ was voted the #1 movie of all time. It is pretty astounding that a  movie that did not do terribly well at the box office would even make it in the top ten movies, let  alone land at the top of the list. One answer to this can be summed up well by Tim Robbins  (Andy Dufresne):  “Why has it endured? ... The reason why it’s had a profound impact on people has a lot to do, I  think, with its spirit, and the hope within it. The idea that over a long period of time, someone’s  ambitions can come true, that resilience and persistence pay off.”   The plight of the film and its success can be compared to Andy’s plight throughout the entirety  of ​ Shawshank​ . One of the strongest messages of the film is the idea that through hope and  perseverance, one can prevail. Andy comes into Shawshank a quiet, unimpressive man who has  to endure the harshness of prison life until the day he dies. However, he continues to have hope  that he will one day be free despite many setbacks and his friends telling him that hope is a  dangerous thing. In the end, Andy finds a way to escape prison and lives out the rest of his life in  beautiful​  Zihuatenejo, Mexico. Just like Andy, ​ Shawshank’s ​ beginnings seemed rather dismal  and hopeless, however throughout the years the “little film that could” slowly gained popularity  and is now regarded as one of the greatest movies of all time.  Since ​ Shawshank Redemption ​ was released in 1994, it is important to have a basic  understanding of society and culture in the late 80’s and early 90’s. The 80’s were largely  influenced by the policies brought about by President Ronald Reagan who was in favor of tax

The Division of the G.O.C. Into Factions      The first division among the Old Calendarists occurred in 1936, when  three  of  the  seven  bishops  returned  to  the  New  Calendarist  State  Church  of  Greece.  The  fallen  hierarchs  were  Metropolitan  Chrysostom  Demetriou  of  Zacynthus, Bishop Christopher Hatziz of Megara and Bishop Polycarp Liosis  of  Diaulia.  The  remaining  hierarchs  of  the  Synod  of  the  Genuine  Orthodox  Church  of  Greece  were  Metropolitan  Germanus  Mavromatis  of  Demetrias,  Metropolitan  Chrysostom  Kavouridis  of  Florina,  Bishop  Germanus  Varykopoulos of the Cyclades and Bishop Matthew Karpathakis of Bresthena.      The second division among the Old Calendarists also occurred in 1936,  when the government‐recognized entity of the “Religious Community of the  Genuine  Orthodox  Christians”  (a  group  of  laymen  theoloigians  without  any  bishops or priests) severed communion with the President of the Holy Synod,  Metropolitan Germanus, and also severed communion with all the remaining  hierarchs of the Synod, and went off alone, forming a parasynagogue.      The third division among the Old Calendarists occurred in September  1937,  when  Bishop  Matthew  of  Bresthena  severed  communion  with  the  Synodal  President,  Metropolitan  Germanus,  and  instead  formed  his  own  party, and took over the leadership of the schismatic “Religious Community  of  the  Genuine  Orthodox  Christians”  which  had  severed  communion  from  the  Church a year earlier. Bishop Matthew left for ecclesiological reasons.      The fourth division occurred in October 1937, when Bishop Germanus  of  the  Cyclades  severed  communion  with  the  President  of  the  Holy  Synod,  Metropolitan Germanus of Demetrias, and instead joined Bishop Matthew.      The  fifth  division  occurred  in  1942,  when  Bishops  Germanus  of  the  Cyclades  and  Matthew  of  Bresthena  severed  communion  with  one  another  due  to  dogmatic  reasons.  Bishop  Germanus  of  Cyclades  condemned  Bishop  Matthew for his writings and publications, which included a statement that if  it were not for the birth of St. John Chrysostom, there would have needed to  be a “second incarnation of Christ,” and another statement that Christ’s teeth  were  supposedly  broken,  etc.  Bishop  Matthew  retaliated  against  this  by  stating  that  Bishop  Germanus  was  guilty  of  blaspheming  against  King  Abgar’s  letter  to  Christ,  and  the  response  from  Christ  to  Abgar,  and  for  mocking the “symbols of the Theotokos” that Bishop Matthew had published  in his book “Garden of Graces.”       The sixth division among the Old Calendarists occurred in 1943, when  Metropolitan  Chrysostom  of  Florina  severed  communion  with  the  Synodal  President, Metropolitan Germanus of Demetrias, due to political reasons.      In other words, by 1943, there were four Old Calendarist bishops, and  four factions! Each of the four bishops was the “president” of his own faction.  Unfortunately,  these  hierarchs  managed  to  preserve  themselves  from  new  calendarism, but they fell into the passion of factionalism, a passion that still  runs  wild  among  the  Old  Calendarist  hierarchs  even  today.  This  is  what  occurs  when  bishops  are  led  by  their  passions,  make  hasty  decisions  to  condemn their brothers, and make themselves leaders of their own parties.      In  1946,  this  factionalism  began  to  come  to  an  end  when  Bishops  Christopher and Polycarp returned to the Old Calendar and joined the Synod  of  Metropolitan  Chrysostom  of  Florina.  Soon  after  this,  Bishop  Germanus  of  the Cyclades also began meeting with the above three bishops for the sake of  reuniting all the factions of the Old Calendarists of Greece. However, he was  placed in prison from 1947 to 1949, and it was not until he was released that  he  joined  formally  with  the  Synod  of  Metropolitan  Chrysostom  of  Florina.  The only bishop who remained separated was Bishop Matthew of Bresthena,  mainly for ecclesiological reasons, but he was much more open to unity than  were those immediately surrounding him.      The  below  photograph  is  of  Metropolitan  Chrysostom  of  Florina  and  Bishops  Germanus  of  Cyclades,  Christopher  of  Megaris  and  Polycarp  of  Diaulia  in  1946,  when  the  factionalism  began  to  end  and  a  united  Synod  began to form again (with the exclusion of Bishop Matthew who did not meet  in person with any of the remaining hierarchs).      Germanus of Cyclades, Chrysostom of Florina, Christopher of Megaris, Polycarp of Diaulia
