At first The Crucible seemed a little dry and complicated because it was during the Puritan time period and opened with girls dancing around the fire as if they were possessed. As we got further and further through the movie I started appreciating the complexity of the storyline.
Thats another reason why I loved it so much. It was because it wasnt predictable and that describes a good movie in my opinion. John Proctor is definetly my favorite character because of his aloofness from the community and being an individual. Showing that there wasnt a need to be extremely religous to maintain the characteristics of a good man besides the fact that he slept with Abby.
Actually John Proctor was so developed that he didnt seem like a character from the book. Arthur Miller brought the character to life. Everything he said and did was believable. That was also because Daniel Day- Lewis played him and most of his interpretations of characters are spot on. Overall, The Crucible made me realize how ridiculous black listing someone because they were a communist was.
