Analysis of the Lottery
The Lottery game is a film based on the brief stow of the very same name by Shirley Jackson. The story occurs in a little village, where individuals held an anniversary activity of lottery. One person in the town is randomly chosen, and the individual who got the lotto would be struck to death by stones for the sake of harvest of the following year. In my viewpoint, “The Lottery game’ is a surprise and scary story. The movie begins under a friendly environment. Individuals in the town are close and knowledgeable about each other. Before the lottery, everyone appears in a peace mind and friendly to each other. For example, Mrs.
Hutchinson gets here late, just with an excuse of “forgetting what day it was”. They speak to each other as usual give me a misconception that the lottery is an event comparable as the square dance that is welcomed and festive. Anticipate that the winner Of the lottery will get a reward, cash or something. Mr. Warner who was the oldest person in the town states with pride, “Seventy-seventh year I have been in the Lottery game.” I always believe the lotto is a pleasant occasion till the very minute Testis screams when she sees her partner choose the black dot The addition surprises me that the winners fate is death by loved ones.
With this conclusion, the movie ends up being a scary story. The film centers on the actions of each town individuals from an objective perspective to show the blind obedience, less of rationality and terrible cold of humanity of the whole town people. In this mundane town, everyone understands each other. Nevertheless, when Testis gets the black spot, Mrs. Specials informs her, “Be an excellent sport Testis.” Individuals’s reflection to the terrible thing is rather cold-blooded. This film presents a weakness in human individuals.
Lottery as such a terrible activity for many years, with no objections or concerns asked. Even somebody doubts the lotto has actually been addressed with “There has constantly been a lottery.” Even individuals might not be totally comfy with the event, however everybody still goes along with it. No one freely reveals worry or disgust toward the lottery game. Even Testis is friendly and pretending to be pleased to be present prior to she gets the black spot. I think if Testis is not the target, she will also throw the stones to the winner.
The movie shows hypocrisy and human weak point in the small town. It is awful when individuals constantly counting on the traditions, especially some brutal sacrificial ceremonies like the lottery. The vacation atmosphere and shocked conclusion of the lottery game intensify the horror of the story. The horror of the lotto is not just the cruel habits of individuals, but likewise unconcerned reflection to the victim. They feel not regret to the victim, and even thrilled when they throw the stones. The lurking evil of human kind is the most horror thing that showed by the film.
