Different perspectives-visual and mental require you to

Film and the novel: As the lecture this week points out, and I have been ranting about for two weeks, “Watching a television series is a different form of analysis than say, reading a novel. In this unit, you should concentrate on the differences between the novel and the series, as a way of forming your own perspective on how these popular forms operate.I have also posted an announcement about novels and the films or television series made from them.Different perspectives–visual and mental require you to analyze the material in different ways.This is one difference that will carry over to disciplines in other ways, terminology, vocabulary, need for research and support. Remember that Schmid is a non fiction book. Does it have research support? How does the vocabulary differ from film and novel?Weekly Comparisons: -the serial killer at the heart of Jeff Lindsay’s (Dexter novel and the TV series Dexter unashamedly depicts a serial killer as “hero.” How does the novel/series help us see Dexter Morgan in a more complex way than the previous units’ serial killers? (The Silence of the Lambs and Mr. Brooks)To answer this question, look very carefully at the way the novel/series depicts the violence on the page/screen.** Just how carefully must the crafting be – the editing and camera work — to pull an audience towards “accepting” a serial killer as their hero??Think about dream like series and the shifting of perspective.Violence: In the novel, Dexter’s ability to kill is passed off–much as we saw in Mr. Brooks–on a Dark Passenger.Be sure to think about what you have seen and discussed so far as you respond to the genres of Dexter.At first, when Dexter stabs his victims, the camera editing hides the actual murder.Compare this to the end of the first season when censorship falls away, and the entire brutal sequences of carnage and stabbing and murder are on full display for an audience. Why? Has the series been prepping us, developing our own blood lust a bit, so that near the end of the series we’re more wrapped in the violent episodes–perhaps in a very dark way, enjoying the kill scenes visually — as emotional catharsis?At stake: here is the idea that Dexter’s evidence is ironclad. The justice system might fail, but facts are facts. Is there a problem here with Dexter’s philosophy of evidence always speaking the truth? Does he really know better than all the judges, lawyers, and police that have worked on the investigations?Also at stake, is Dexter’s code: the set of rules laid down by his father, Harry Morgan. The rules allow Dexter to only kill certain people, in a certain way, always under controlled circumstances. Is this level of control one way to help us accept the killings as necessary?
