A drama is a genre that explores the complexity of human nature. They often cross over with other genres, such as historical, or romance, or crime. A drama often takes inspiration from real life issues and relies on the development of certain characters. There is a focus on characters' emotional states and how they relate to others. Dramas can be quite complex, and exist to make sense of a certain situation or happening, which in turn can make us reflect on our own lives. Sometimes they are pretty intense.

What is a Greek Tragedy?

A Greek tragedy was a popular and influential form of drama that was performed in theaters in Ancient Greece in the late 6th century BCE. The famous playwrights of the time included Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides. The Greek tragedy led to Greek comedy and together the genres formed the foundation on which modern theater bases on.

What is the origin of drama?

Drama originated in Athens, Greece where hymns were sung in honor of the god Dionysus. Ancient Greece developed a theatrical culture that created 3 genres of drama: tragedy, comedy, and satyr play. By the 6th century BCE there were competitions held as part of the festivities celebrating the Greek gods. Only a small number of complete drama texts have survived today.

Standoff (Reservoir Dogs)
Side elevation of a scene in Reservoir Dogs where Mr. White and Mr. Pink are having a standoff

Towards the end of the 199 film Reservoir Dogs, Quentin Tarantino’s directorial debut, there is a Mexican standoff. The scene occurs after a planned diamond heist has spectacularly failed. The criminal gang return to a warehouse where they launch accusations and insults at each other. The scene climaxes with characters all pointing guns at one another, waiting for someone to take the first shot. Most people die, except Mr. Pink, who hides from the bullets and later escapes (with the diamonds). The scene highlights the shallow performance of masculinity.

Mr. White, portrayed by Harvey Keitel, is 5 foot 7 inches (1.70 m) tall. Mr. Pink, played by Steve Buscemi, is 5 foot 9 inches (1.75 m) tall.
