Friar Lawrence’s Tattoo in the Movie!

This going to be a short piece of error in the movie! As you can see on the left of you can see Friar Lawrence’s tattoo! A Friar has a tattoo! A man of God should be praising God, not getting tattoos! My guess to why the tattoo is there because it is of Jesus’ cross. Baz Luhrmann should have thought how important God was in Shakespeare’s time and interpreted a Friar back then but more ‘down to earth’ if I should say. It would have been more suited for the Capulets and Montagues boys to have tattoos!

Thank you for reading and I hoped you enjoyed it!

God in Romeo and Juliet!

This not really a interpretation of God but how God is used in the play, written by William Shakespeare!

In the 1500-1600 England was a very strong Christian country! Everyone had to be Christian or face the consequences! The play of Romeo and Juliet completely takes out God. In the play there were many references to God but Romeo and Juliet both killed themselves!!?? This is means that a person has no belief in God and life! Christianity believes that committing suicide is the most sinful thing a human can do. Even killing someone else is considered a smaller sin than killing yourself. So why did Shakespeare even think of putting sinful actions in the play. Well my guess is that it contributes to the ‘tragedy’ of the play. Not only this structure of a play changed the world because so many plays have copied this, it might have influenced a slight of doubt for Christianity in England!

Next time I will talk about how God is used in the movie or if God is even used in the movie!? Thank for reading!!
