The plot? In a dystopian future, firemen patrol the cities looking for books to burn. Books provoke ideas, curiosity, dissent and imagination, the film's fascist state believes, and so all books are gathered and incinerated at 451 degrees Fahrenheit. Anyone possessing a book is placed in a mental institution. Guy Montag, his name recalling a character in Kafka's "The Trial", is one such book burner, though he also lives a secret life in which he passionately reads books. Gradually these book awaken Guy's curiosity. Around him, everyone's popping pills, watching reality TV, waltzing with interactive media and living in a depressingly grim techno-daze (Bradbury's novel is said to have even predicted the invention of the Ipod or Walkman). Surely, Guy thinks, books are a means of fleeing this dreary reality? A means of provoking some form of change? Surely. From here on, "books" become Bradbury's blunt metaphor for any and all "knowledge". But this is a knowledge less suppressed by the state than it is rejected (made clearer in Bradbury's novel) by a hedonistic populace which instead seeks incessant pleasure. In a sense, the books are not ignored because they are burnt, but are burnt because they are ignored. Late in the film, the authorities learn of Guy's book reading transgressions. Like Antoine in Truffaut's "The 400 Blows", Guy thus flees, escaping to the woods where he finds a rebel faction in hiding. Here, each person has committed a different book to memory. They are the guardians of knowledge, the elite minority who preserve texts which have otherwise been lost. Like Bradbury's novel, Truffaut's film is implicitly about the post-literate generation and the death of books at the hands of New Media (the television, internet, the cinema etc). The film begins with television antennas, text-less opening credits, the alternating colours of the visible light spectrum (or old cathode tubes) and features scenes in which books are literally swallowed by TV sets. The "fire engine" of the book burners is itself a Hollywood mobile camera crane/truck. What the film thus charts is man's transition into the post-literate age and the death of both orality and literature. Of course, like Bradbury's future, our Western present is one of criss-crossing multimedia. Writing and reading are still of value, but only in so far as they facilitate the manipulation of other media. The post-literate society assumes traditional literacy skills, but the typical post-literate is a passive literate. Books are read, provided they hook dwindling attention spans or plug directly back into New Media, either via form (ebooks, ipads) or content (celebrity, actor biographies etc). Mentioned also in Bradbury's novel, but not the film, is the idea of a rise in "noncombustible data", a term Bradbury used to refer to an increase in any information that is incapable of producing reflection, analysis, contemplation, comparison, and/or an understanding of how a political, social, or economic system works. What Bradbury essentially predicted was the information age, an age in which everything is accessible, but the sheer volume of information, both junk and otherwise, not only makes fishing a burden, but precludes the need to find, master or apply this information. Truffaut's film was ignored upon release and today still has a poor reputation. This is largely because Truffaut revokes your typical science fiction aesthetic and instead channels, firstly, the retro aesthetics and production design work of 1950s "classic" Hollywood scifi (see "Forbidden Planet"), and secondly, early 50s Hitchcockian opera. Indeed, "Fahrenheit" is one giant love letter to Alfred Hitchcock - of whom Truffaut would publish a book on a year later - with its pounding Bernard Herrmann score, grand emotions, sweeping orchestrations, snappy cutting, bold colours, "Spellbound" inspired dream sequences, 360 degree spins and punchy, whiplash-like camera work. In addition to this, actress Julie Christie plays a pair of double roles (like Kim Novak in "Vertigo") and actor Oskar Werner becomes your typical Hitchcockian running man (as an Austrian outsider who hid from the Nazis, Oskar's real life echoes Truffaut's film). Truffaut even films some sequences backwards, to give the film a dreamy, surreal edge. So at its best, Truffaut channels the baroque, bombastic tone of Hitchcock, which is why "Farenheit" tends to be liked only by those intimately familiar with directors like Hitchcock or Brian De Palma. Like "Fahrenheit", Hitchcock's later films and De Palma's own oeuvre are similarly shunned. There is a perception that this aesthetic style – expressionistic, dreamy, operatic – belongs solely to a naive era of cinema. It can not slip past the late 1960s. Today's rise in rationalism and the corresponding rise in insincerity negates Hitchcock's brand of deadpan, sincere expressionism. Though prophetic, Bradbury got two big things wrong. The intellectualism and bookishness that he celebrates was always marginal and elitist. The post literate society simply forces this elitism to take a different shape. His big mistake, though, was in assuming that a future state would ban all art. Today's reality is not the barren, censored, repressed world of Bradbury, but the cultural overload, media-saturation and hyper-hedonism of "A Clockwork Orange". Put art everywhere, give it to everyone, commodify everything and everybody, and you effectively neutralise art, books, objects and people. This is what German philosopher Herbert Marcuse, in his book "One Dimensional Man", called "repressive desublimation". Marcuse saw that postmodern capitalism had "internalised" critique and would increasingly resemble a perverse hybrid of Soviet-style totalitarianism and US-style consumerism. In this world, commodities, art and objects are not just a means of distraction, but the "Ideology" itself. In a world where nothing is repressed, where certain forms of desublimation (freedom) are encouraged, and where everything theoretically can be yours, attention is drawn away from the oppressive and authoritarian character of society, and there becomes no practical grounds for rebellion. Meanwhile, books are everywhere, but nobody reads them. 8/10 - Worth two viewings. 14 May 2020 Works Cited More...

Categories: Quidditch matches are played over an oval-shaped pitch, with a scoring area at each end consisting of three hooped goal posts, each at a different height. Each team is made up of seven players, consisting of three Chasers, two Beaters, one Keeper and one Seeker. The job of the Chasers is to keep possession of the scarlet Quaffle, a leather ball passed between players. They must attempt to score goals (worth 10 points) by throwing it through one of the opponents' three hoops. These hoops are defended by the opposing team's Keeper, who ideally tries to block their goals. Meanwhile, players of both teams are attacked indiscriminately by the two Bludgers. These are round, jet-black balls made of iron that fly around violently trying to knock players off their brooms. It is the Beaters' job to defend their teammates from the Bludgers; they carry short wooden clubs, which they use to knock the Bludgers away from their teammates and/or toward the opposing team. Finally, the role of the Seeker is to catch the Golden Snitch. This is a small golden ball the approximate size of a walnut. The winged Snitch is enchanted to hover, dart, and fly around the pitch, avoiding capture while remaining within the boundaries of the playing area. Catching the Snitch ends the game and scores the successful Seeker's team 150 points. As the team with the most points wins, this often guarantees victory for the successful Seeker's team. A notable exception is when Bulgaria Seeker Viktor Krum catches the Snitch for Bulgaria during the World Cup Final in Goblet of Fire, while his team are still 160 points behind Ireland (their opponents), thus making his own team lose by only 10 points. • Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists (2016) Both the chapters and the contents or topics of each chapter can be moved a bit.

Additionally, a chapter such as that of transition metals, usually taught late in second semester, could be easily moved up to fashion a different sequence.
