Analysis of the Lottery
The Lotto is a movie based on the short stow of the same name by Shirley Jackson. The story happens in a small village, where individuals held an anniversary activity of lottery game. One person in the town is arbitrarily picked, and the individual who got the lottery game would be struck to death by stones for the sake of harvest of the list below year. In my opinion, “The Lotto’ is a surprise and scary story. The film starts under a friendly atmosphere. Individuals in the town are close and knowledgeable about each other. Prior to the lotto, everyone appears in a peace mind and friendly to each other. For instance, Mrs.
Hutchinson arrives late, just with a reason of “forgetting what day it was”. They talk to each other as normal offer me a false impression that the lotto is an occasion comparable as the square dance that is welcomed and festive. Expect that the winner Of the lottery will get a reward, cash or something. Mr. Warner who was the oldest individual in the town states with pride, “Seventy-seventh year I have actually remained in the Lottery.” I constantly believe the lottery game is a pleasant event till the very minute Testis screams when she sees her hubby pick the black dot The inclusion surprises me that the winners fate is death by family and friends.
With this conclusion, the film ends up being a scary story. The movie centers on the actions of each town people from an unbiased point of view to show the blind obedience, less of rationality and vicious cold of human nature of the entire town individuals. In this ordinary town, everybody understands each other. However, when Testis gets the black spot, Mrs. Delicacies informs her, “Be a great sport Testis.” People’s reflection to the harsh thing is quite cold-blooded. This movie provides a weak point in human individuals.
Lotto as such a horrible activity for so many years, with no objections or questions asked. Even someone questions the lottery game has actually been addressed with “There has actually always been a lottery game.” Even people might not be totally comfortable with the occasion, but everybody still accompanies it. Nobody openly expresses fear or disgust toward the lottery. Even Testis gets along 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 toss the stones to the winner.
The movie shows hypocrisy and human weak point in the village. It is horrible when individuals always depending on the traditions, especially some ruthless sacrificial ceremonies like the lottery game. The vacation atmosphere and surprised conclusion of the lottery intensify the horror of the story. The horror of the lottery game is not only the cruel habits of individuals, but likewise unconcerned reflection to the victim. They feel not guilt to the victim, and even delighted when they throw the stones. The prowling evil of human kind is one of the most scary thing that showed by the movie.
