There are some sections that will be analyzed here, such as genre, year of production, general theme, main characters, plot, setting of time, setting of place, economy sector in the movie, and education sector in the movie.
In addition, there are some reasons why I choose The Soloist and Alangkah Lucunya (Negeri Ini) to be analyzed. Firstly, both of them were released in near year. The Soloist was released in 2008 while Alangkah Lucunya (Negeri Ini) was released in 2010. Thus, the global condition that happened when both of the movies released is the same. Secondly, both of them are tell the viewers about social reality that happened in the US and Indonesia. So, we can compare and contrast it easily. At last, we can compare and compare these movies based on some sectors that appear in both of the movies, such as economy, education, and religion sector.
The genre of The Soloist and Alangkah Lucunya (Negeri Ini) are different. The genre of The Soloist is based on true story drama while the genre of Alangkah Lucunya (Negeri Ini) is satire comedy drama. Although they have different genre, but they show the same general theme in the movies.
Year of released
As I said in the beginning, both of the movies are released in near year. The Soloist was released in 2008 while Alangkah Lucunya (Negeri Ini) was released in 2010. Thus, the global condition that happened when both of the movies released is the same.
The Soloist and Alangkah Lucunya (Negeri Ini) are movies that have same general theme, which is social reality that happened around us. The directors of both movies can make the viewers realize that even the street life can give us some inspirations.
The main characters in these movies that are Steve Lopez in The Soloist and Muluk in Alangkah Lucunya (Negeri Ini) are educated people. In both of the movies, we can see exactly whether the character is educated or uneducated.
The plot of these movies is the same. Both of the movies did not run as a flashback, but they run as a daily life.
Setting of Time
We can see the setting of time of The Soloist exactly on 2005, but we cannot see the setting time of Alangkah Lucunya (Negeri Ini) exactly in what year. But, it seems that Alangkah Lucunya (Negeri Ini) did not take a setting of time of past because the situation that appear in the movie show that it was happened in a modern era like when the movie was released.
Setting of Place
Most of the setting of place that appears in both The Soloist and Alangkah Lucunya (Negeri Ini) is in the street. It seems that it is because these movies are telling the viewers about social reality that happened in the street.
Economy Sector in the Movie
The economy sector that appears in these movies is the same. They show about the life of low economy people that struggle to survive in big cities.
Education Sector in the Movie
As I said on the main character analysis that we can guess and see exactly who is the educated people and who is the uneducated people. Besides, these movies tell us that people at that time think that educated people must have a great job and if it is not, they will stamped as well as uneducated people. The point that distinguish these movies is in The Soloist, the reason why the educated character did not get any job is he suffered an illness while the reason why the educated character hardly get a job in Alangkah Lucunya (Negeri Ini) is the work chance that available in the city where he lives is very limited and so hard to catch because so many people are finding a job instead of making a new job at that time.
