Brave New World vs. Gattaca
We all anticipate the near future to have advance innovation and flying automobiles. Well, genetic modification is indeed advance innovation however there are negative results that occur with it. In both “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley (1932) and Gattaca (1997) is based on how genetic engineering is taken control of the world. Everybody was produced by science rather of being born and having both parents’ genes. Intelligence a personality are extremely minor in these societies, however the essential thing that matters is where you belong in life.
Nevertheless, the movie Gattaca is in the future but has an outdated style to it. From the clothing and hairdos to the cars and buildings, everything advises you of the design in the 50’s or 60’s. The director planned it to be that way simply to view how our style could return to how it utilized to be in the past. The setting of the movie sets the state of mind to be somewhat serious and thriller like. The mood of expert service would be a good example of this film. The style of the book is typically saying are we all headed to where our genetic code defines what we do and how we live.
Although the film does not have a futuristic feel to it, the plot still reveals you that the future is not that range. The primary character, Vincent Freeman, wished to satisfy his dreams and travel into area. The preliminary problem that took place was that his gene was not genetic exceptional to achieve his goal. Vincent had a heart issue that avoided him from doing huge jobs. He developed a concept to become a legitimate individual. He chose to use another person’s identity and DNA to be able to travel in the stars. Vincent uses a professional athlete, Jerome Marrow, who was paraplegic from a car crash.
Freeman changed his looks, design, and even had surgical treatment to end up being the exact same height as Jerome. He made sure that individuals would find whom he truly is. Later in the movie, Vincent’s bro searches for the murderer of an important individual but was really trying to find Vincent. They didn’t know they were brother because a while back when they were younger, Vincent’s brother was lost at sea and he have not seen him since. They reunite and realize on how various they were from each other. In a way, this film has a genre of mystery and thriller that is served.
On the other hand, the book “Brave New World” also does not truly have that futuristic feel, however you can inform it is based upon the future when you read it. The book is older, so when it was composed, it did not have the contemporary style that we use. The year is actually in 802540, which is way past the year future. The state of mind of this book is satirical and bitter. At some times, it was funny but had a major significance to it too. As you check out the book, you could observe that there would be more than something going at as soon as where the point of view turns from very first person to third person omniscient.
The style of this book isn’t anything compared to Gattaca, however it’s stating that the neighborhood is decontaminated and we are headed for the end if the community we reside in continue. In addition to, the movie Gattaca resembles “Brave New World”. Human beings anticipate other human’s lifestyle by making tests and observations to identify where they are positioned. This world seeks stability in each society however it probably doesn’t work on everybody. Having a family is not permitted to be applied in the future. Therefore, the people are separated on what specifies them like being a Delta or an Upsilon.
In which why the character Bernard is not delighted with the order of the world. He attempts to understand why specific things are prohibit from the future such as having a family. Bernard looks for the significance of life however everybody believes he is crazy from exploring his curiosity. I think that the both the authors of the film and the book planned on including such an extreme view of the future. These views of the future are in fact believable and really could be where we are all headed at to the near future.
All though all of us think of the future being a new and high tech setting, in Gattaca we can actually see the design of the 50’s and unlike “Brave New World” we can just read what it might be and picture it. All in all, both of the Gattaca and “Brave New World” are interesting and intriguing. I would advise reading “Brave New World” first and after that enjoying Gattaca since you can get an older perspective of the future and a more modern-day point of view. Genetic engineering could be our future if innovation becomes larger than it currently is.
