ENG 111 Professor S. Fried What Violence Can Reveal Once Were Warriors is a film directed by Lee Tamahori in 1994. The film displays many brutally violent scenes. Some examples of the extreme violence include [but are not limited to] rape, domestic violence, suicide, and murder. Each scene of violence in the film reveal more about the characters and build up the storyline, but the scene where Jake beats up Beth does this to a greater extent. In the first violent scene, we see Beth in the kitchen, frustrated during a late-night party where everyone is drunk. Jake’s hungry friend asks Beth to cook eggs, but she angrily refuses. Jake orders her to cook but she refuses again and throws the eggs on the floor. He immediately takes the situation in his own hands and beats her. She is repeatedly punched in the face, slammed into the wall and mirror, and is then thrown forcefully onto the bed where he rapes her. From this scene, we learn that Jake is a very violent and destructive person when drunk.
