The paper is an amazing piece as it approach the thesis and topic in a rather natural tone. For a movie review, it’s very important for the writer to approach the topic in a fair fashion so that the reading won’t feel offended or forced to read the idea behind the story.
In academic writing, one of the common issue I ran into is that sometimes when I need to quote something directly, I had to spend some words to explain why the quotation is relevant to the topic and when my writing skill is limited, the quotation lost its power to persuade to reading. In this article, however, paraphrasing is largely used to directly apply the write’s idea with the quotation. In chapter one of the articles, the author used this technique quite a lot in the introduction paragraph because it draws attention to the reader while also put forward the idea directly onto the plot. However, when we jump to the main part of the article talking about the commentary on the relationship between theater and film. The author started using quite a lot of quote to speak about his idea.
The paper’s literature review is in the middle of a second where the author used a large portion of the quote directly out there and then analyze it sentence by sentence. It’s powerful because we see the whole picture of the quote while also noticed the author’s point. Again, in a film review, this is probably best way because it give the viewer insight of the author and the quotation and we can relate them together very well.
