Project #74969 - journal: one page, 3 paragraph essay

crisis point in film and theatre can simply be described as a moment toward the end of a film when the protagonist has few options left (often two "stand and fight or run away") and must make a decision (this is similar to Syd Field's Plot Point).  This decision will lead the protagonist into the climax.  Often the limited options are results of the character having made several decisions before this point that have eliminated all other avenues.  An important key is that this moment usually finds the protagonist at his or her lowest--all is lost--and this causes them to be thoughtful and reflective.  However, another scenario is that the protagonist has accomplished his or her goal and now must decide whether this goal was all they thought it would be.    

This is the case with the clip below.  In the film Up Carl has finally achieved his goal of honoring his recently deceased wife by transporting his entire house to Paradise Falls.  This is the fulfillment of a childhood dream.  But the cost to accomplish this goal was his abandonment of a young boy scout, a talking dog, and a mythical creature named Kevin in their time of need.

Here's the qustion (after viewing the video and reading the material for the week):  Think back to your movie-going experiences of the past... how often have you seen this moment--a crisis point?  Do any examples come to mind?

  1. Read the description of a "Crisis Point" and background of the film Up
  2. Watch the clip
  3. Read the question (copy it for pasting if needed)
  4. Enter the forum
