Ben Bridges Eng. 115 4/14/08 Across the Universe I found myself sitting there watching this movie, just drawn in by the music, characters, and the messages being given. “Across the Universe” was a very well crafted film. It was a film that allowed you to enjoy it and also learn a little. It displayed messages that gave lessons and points of view of the 60’s and the war. This is a good film to tie in with the Beat Generation and can easily be compared with poets Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg. It was a powerful film that clearly displayed its values and its reflection on American culture. “Across the Universe,” a film by Julie Taymor, had a lot of values being displayed. They fit right for the time setting of the movie, which was the 1960’s. The values included freedom, peace, love, and happiness. The value of freedom was displayed all throughout the film with scenes of the characters rebelling against the regular standards. Also, freedom is displayed in how they just live life to the way they want to.
