The third day of the film festival in Toronto has revolved around two films have in common a critical look to the so-called American dream, on which was supported the American collective imagination since the historian James Truslow Adams theorized about equality inherent in American culture opportunities. Both films (Snowden, American Pastoral) differ, however, in the diagnosis of the causes of the decline of the American dream. American Pastoral is the debut film direction of the famous actor Ewan McGregor (The Serpent's Kiss, Cassandra's Dream, The Star Wars) who handles the big-screen classic writer Philip Roth of the same title.
The novel focuses on some of the obsessions Newark writer, such as the problems of integration of Jews or deterioration of personal relationships in the context of the next generation after World War II. Specifically, it is to explore the role that the so-called cultural Marxism has had in the loss of life of American classical values, such as family or socio-political values on which American democracy has rested. One of the hallmarks of the New Left, which emerged from the counterculture movements of the 60s, has been to take up the reflection of the Italian Marxist thinker Antonio Gramsci, that the capitalist system is based rather than institutional architecture, a set of values that Marxism should subvert. To illustrate its analysis, Roth uses the character of Seymour Swede Levov, prototype wealthy Jewish family father Newark (New Jersey), whose fall into hell is narrated by Roth with great literary skill.

Move to the movies Roth's literary style, based largely in the inner monologue and the fleshless satire, was no easy task. However, McGregor gets billed a very acceptable film. The story more or less remains faithful to the literary text, with some creative liberties, and is the McGregor himself, who initially was not going to direct the film, which is responsible starring the character Swede, an exemplary parent who sees succumb all in what they thought when her daughter Merry, played by actress Dakota Fanning (Yellowbird, night moves), begins to flirt with radical close political ideas to the approaches of the black Panthers and other opposing political groups American politics of late 60. the film begins exactly as it does Roth's novel with the presentation of character Swede, the perfect son that every mother would want for her daughter through dialogue that keeps an old mate Swede institute, Nathan Zuckerman (David Strathairn) Swede's brother and which lets him know the tragic events that occurred in the.
Snowdnova story life of the talented and brilliant former classmate. From there, through a flashback that takes up most of the length of the film, we see the story of life events Swede from initial marriage to a Jew, played by actress Jennifer Connelly, despite the opposition of his father, until the first conflict with his daughter Merry, increasingly influenced by radical leftist ideas that feed social resentment and become a terrorist willing to kill for utopia in which he believes.
“Snowden” The film features strong performances by its main protagonists, especially Dakota Fanning, who is able to convey with absolute clarity all the accumulated by his character, Merry, grudges against their parents. Resentment hatred based on who she sees as exponents of capitalism: a system as unfair and perverse opinion. The film highlights the influences of freudomarxistas thinkers like Wilhelm Reich, had roots among the American youth of these ideas. The growing radicalization of Merry seems to point to the influence of his psychotherapist, who is hired to treat stuttering Merry says. In the opinion of the psychoanalyst is a manifestation of rejection of a bourgeois family model and an unresolved Oedipal conflict with his mother to represent a role of women subjected to succeed. Based on the growing suspicion of Merry creates an abyss within the family Swede, who works as a metaphor for the crisis of the utopia of the American dream.
Oliver Stone offers his personal view of the decline of the American dream in his latest film, Snowden, which tells the story of the famous CIA employee who, overwhelmed by the policy control of communications of citizens held both by the administration Bush, as the President Obama decides to desert his country and denounce the US government spying its citizens to a group of journalists from the British newspaper the Guardian in 2013. it is no secret that Oliver Stone has a very critical view the politics of his country for decades and lately he is better known as a political activist, who as a filmmaker. However, with Snowden, while clearly taking sides with the version of events of the protagonist, reflected in his book Time of The Octopus, Stone holds especially filmmaker and does so with remarkable skill, recalling at times some of his best work as Platoon, midnight express or JFK. If something stands Oliver Stone is for his prodigious mastery of cinematic storytelling, for which she is able to tell thei.!
"stories with a strong tone of investigative journalism, always ready to show all hidden aspects of the stories, often hidden behind a semblance of normality, something we see in Snowden in many sequences that develop inside offices ultra secrets, where CIA officials within the absolute bureaucratic normality, engaged in spying, not only to potential enemies terrorists, but any entrepreneur or normal citizen who may pose a potential threat to the paranoid political shift.
There is a moment in the film when Snowden starts to serious doubts about the morality of his job and his companions hide behind the pure duty, that this reminds them, much in the line of Hannah Arendt, that evil many sometimes it is hidden in the everyday banality and in the Nuremberg trials, not just Nazis, but also simple officials were convicted following orders. Undoubtedly, the film transcends the limits of the personal history of Snowden and is a denunciation of the foreign policy of the United States in recent decades, but it is also an excellent human portrait of an idealist, Edward Snowden, who is able to pay a high personal price to defend those values in which he believes. The portrait of Snowden offers the Joseph-Gordon Levitt Actor (Lincoln) is quite convincing. It presents him as an idealistic patriot strong republican convictions, leading him to join the United States Army, who has to leave after injuring a certain gravity during hard training. Driven by his patriotic zeal, he joined the CIA
in the intelligence department, where his great gifts for data encryption attract the attention of his superior dark (Rhys Ifans), master incarnating the Machiavellian head of the CIA, who sees in the perfect to promote within the CIA, using questionable methods candidate
