The paper "The Hunger Games as One of the Most Interesting Films of the Twenty-First Century" is a great example of a movie review on visual arts and film studies. The Hunger Games is one of the most interesting films to have been developed in the twenty-first century. This is mainly because it has ensured that a significant number of themes and issues that affect the world today are dealt with comprehensively. The world within the Hunger Games can be compared to that which takes place in autocratic countries in the world today where the leaders have absolute authority over all individuals in society. Furthermore, it should be noted that like these countries, the society within The Hunger Games is divided into the wealthy, or elite, and the poor, who are the masses that live in the twelve districts. The result of such a situation is that the former do as they wish while the latter are little more than slaves for the wealthy. The relationship between this film and the real world is the main reason behind its selection for the review.The Hunger Games is a film that deals with the lives of individuals from the twelve districts of Panem who are forced to compete in games whose results are often fatal as punishment for a rebellion by these districts against the government of Panem that had taken place decades before. The games can only have one winner and this is the individual who will have survived all the other contestants in the games. The main characters of this film are shown as individuals who are willing to do their best to ensure their survival, to the extent of forming an alliance against the other contestants. The most significant of these individuals are Peeta, Katniss, and Rue who, despite being wary of one another in the beginning end up forming a fast friendship that proves pivotal in their participation in the games. Katniss and Peeta create a role for themselves where they pretend to be in love with each other to make sure that they are not only popular with the audiences of the games but also to gain more donors. This seeming budding love between these two individuals is considered to be an act of defiance against the government because it has never happened before during the games. The death of Rue marks a turning point in the games because Katniss and Peeta end up becoming more defiant towards the Panem government and this creates a situation where they force events to ensure that they not only gain public sympathy but also make sure that they are eventually declared joint winners of the games.
