Law and Legal Procedures

WITNESS
FOR THE PROSECUTION
(1957, USA)

Director: Billy Wilder


Starring: Tyrone Power, Marlene Dietrich and Charles
Laughton
Description:
A courtroom drama film with comedy elements, based
on a short story (and later play) by Agatha Christie dealing
with the trial of a man accused of murder. Witty, funny
and engaging, if not thrilling, this film is a pretty loose
adaptation it took the characters, the case and the twist
from the story but the rest is made for the film. It depicts
a lot of British criminal court procedure and legal issues.
Pronunciation Notes:
Mainly British English carefully articulated by both
American (Tyrone Power as Leonard Vole) and British
actors (Charles Laughton as Sir Wilfred Robarts, Elsa
Lanchester as Miss Plimsoll, John Williams as Brogan!
Moore, etc). Marlene Dietrich as Christine Vole has a
German accent. Una OConnor as Janet McKenzie
speaks with a mock Irish accent.

A Watching for the Story


It is rather easy to follow. The speech is a bit fast at times but
all the actors articulate very distinctly. With any level above
Intermediate you should try and watch in English at once. If it
goes hard use subtitles so that you could enjoy the twist.

B Watching for the General Vocabulary


Fill the gaps with one or two words from the film:
1. And yet you came to this particular travel agency with a
_______ brunette?
2. Come, Im sure you dont wish to suggest to the jury that
you were _______.
3. I dont know if I can afford it. Dont worry, well work
out something, like an _______ plan.
4. If you want the _______ on that German bag, get

DOGMA
(Catholicism)
(1999, USA)

Director: Kevin Smith


Starring: Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Linda Fiorentino,
Alan Rickman
Description:
A hypothetical!scenario comedy film revolving around
Christian mythology. The film follows two fallen angels,
Loki and Bartleby, who, through a loophole in Catholic
Dogma, find a way to get back into Heaven after being
cast out by God. However, as existence is founded on the
principle that God is infallible, their success would prove
God wrong and thus undo all creation. The last scion and
two prophets are sent by the Voice of God to stop them.
The film is abundant in travesty, mockery and obscene
vocabulary. But there is nothing actually obscene or
pornographic in it. Particularly devout Christians may find
it blasphemous So, please, read carefully the disclaimer
below.
Pronunciation Notes:
A mixture of various American accents, most of them
not very difficult to understand.

A Watching for the Story


It is reasonable to start with subtitles, even Russian, with
good translation, and switch to the English ones when feeling
confident.
Reading these captions in the beginning of the film is most
essential for taking it the right way and enjoying it.
Translate the text below.
Though itll go without saying ten minutes or so into
these proceedings, View Askew would like to state
that this film is from start to finish a work of
comedic fantasy, not to be taken seriously. To insist
that any of what follows is incendiary or
inflammatory is to miss our intention and pass undue
judgment; and passing judgment is reserved for God
and God alone (this goes for you film critics too...
just kidding)
So please before you think about hurting someone
over this trifle of a film, remember even God has a
sense of humor. Just look at the Platypus.
Thank you and enjoy the show.

C Watching for the Specific Vocabulary


(religious)
Fill the gaps with up to three words from the film:
1. And that, my friends, is called _______. A black man
can steal your stereo, but he cant be your _______.
2. Are you gonna listen to this shit? Thats what people of
Antioch said right before they stoned my ass. You were
_______? Thats one way of putting it.
