Not exactly how it happened in the book... In the novella, George had such a hard time and a battle of morals before he had actually shot Lennie... In this scene from the movie, it gives the sense that they could’ve run away to yet another place like that had ran from Weed to Soledad. In the book, Curley, Slim and Carlson etc was close behind, and there was no way they could’ve ran. Lennie was a great friend and company to George, of course being difficult but he never intended in being so, do you think he’d shoot him so easily? Yes, he murdered Curley’s Wife, but he didn’t mean to. A quote from both the book and move could suggest this ‘I done a bad thing’ and how he feebly covers up the body. This covers the idea that Lennie is still nothing but a mere child at mind and doesn’t grasp the concept of civil society at the time. This could also be used to say that he didn’t mean to kill the mouse nor his own puppy. (However, the puppy’s death could’ve been a foreshadow of CW’s death later on in the chapter). In addition, George relayed the entire, or nearly entire, story of their own little American Dream, almost allowing Lennie to have that one good, happy and hopeful thought he had carried through his working life before he had died.
A beautiful quote from before Lennie died that was heart-wrenching to Read was
“Me and You” (Lennie)
“You and me” (George)
That would’ve been an amazing thing to of had in the movie. Overall, however, this movie is absolutely amazing, and like usual, nit everything is carried over from book to film.
I think George was reminded
Of the pain when that guy said : I should have shot my dog , not them , he was mine, I should've been the one who done it " * or around those lines
I think he wanted to be the one , so he knew it was done properly and for closure
Everyone is saying his death was rushed, but I understand that if I was in George's position I would want Lennie in his happiest moment and get over with it quick. George was probably thinking "just do it, just do it".
Nonononono no no-no no this ain't it. Uh uh he didn't just shoot Lennie in the head like that. He held it off and let Lennie have his last words ya know. He finished by reassuring Lennie that he wasn't mad at him and never was and that they where gonna go and build their life real soon. He was saying goodbye and didn't just cut Lennie off. They really just butchered the scene like that...the build up of how sad this moment was. Ugh smh this is why y'all always read the book before watching the movie especially when it's a classic.
Men and women have at their disposal an array of resources for generating greater knowledge of truth so that their lives may be ever more human. Among these is philosophy, which is directly concerned with asking the question of lifes meaning and sketching an answer to it. Philosophy emerges, then, as one of noblest of human tasks. According to its Greek etymology, the term philosophy means "love of wisdom". Born and nurtured when the human being first asked questions about the reason for things and their purpose, philosophy shows in different modes and forms that the desire for truth is part of human nature itself. It is an innate property of human reason to ask why things are as they are, even though the answers which gradually emerge are set within a horizon which reveals how the different human cultures are complementary.
Philosophys powerful influence on the formation and development of the cultures of the West should not obscure the influence it has also had upon the ways of understanding existence found in the East. Every people has its own native and seminal wisdom which, as a true cultural treasure, tends to find voice and develop in forms which are genuinely philosophical. One example of this is the basic form of philosophical knowledge which is evident to this day in the postulates which inspire national and international legal systems in regulating the life of society.
Nonetheless, it is true that a single term conceals a variety of meanings. Hence the need for a preliminary clarification. Driven by the desire to discover the ultimate truth of existence, human beings seek to acquire those universal elements of knowledge which enable them to understand themselves better and to advance in their own self-realization. These fundamental elements of knowledge spring from the wonder awakened in them by the contemplation of creation: human beings are astonished to discover themselves as part of the world, in a relationship with others like them, all sharing a common destiny. Here begins, then, the journey which will lead them to discover ever new frontiers of knowledge. Without wonder, men and women would lapse into deadening routine and little by little would become incapable of a life which is genuinely personal.
