For all you guys believing that there is another film out there that is superior to Forrest Gump, you’re off-base. OK, fine, I’m a fangirl about the film. However, I have realities to back up my case. Hold tight, and you may just turn into a devotee (in the event that you weren’t at that point – in light of the fact that hey now – the greater part of the world is as of now in concurrence with me on this one, right?)

Presently before I get into the narrative of Forrest Gump, I’m going to nerd out on a couple of components of the story that back up my case. For all our mental stability, I’ll attempt to restrict myself (I could presumably discuss the greatness of this film for quite a long time, so the pleasure is all mine).


Gracious, and… If you’re one of the crackpots who hasn’t seen this film, (embed facepalm emoticon here), help yourself out. Heads up. Truly. It’s worth the effort. What’s more, this blog won’t do it equity.


Contingent upon your insight into story components, you may definitely realize that the three fundamental sorts of contention that are available in the story are: man versus man, man versus nature, and man versus self. Another, more improved approach to putting it is the “outer versus interior” struggle. Forrest Gump hits on every one of these like no one’s business. I’ll point these out more in the “Character Transformation” area. Hold on.


In this classification alone, Forrest Gump would likely still win the best film at any point grant. Subjects are “a fundamental subject of a conversation or a common thought in an imaginative work.” (Thanks, vocabulary.com). All-inclusive subjects are topics that would sound valid for individuals all over the planet – like love or enduring – and for the most part center around human instinct or the human condition.

A portion of the UTs that are available in FG are beating hindrances (“run, Forrest, run!” – which proved to be useful over and over), finding love (“I’m not a savvy man, but rather I understand what love is.” – Forrest to Jenny, the two of them battled to track down adoration and acknowledgment in their lives), and life and passing (each character confronted with death has a one of a kind viewpoint, and Forrest makes his own decisions about existence and demise eventually – re: Lieutenant Dan’s predetermination versus Momma’s crate of chocolates).

I could talk SO MUCH MORE about these subjects and how they are worked out in the film, yet I’ll determine more about both struggle and widespread topics in the “Character Transformation” segment.


Compassion (characterized by vocabulary.com) – is “the capacity to relate to another’s sentiments.”

Okay, you all. This is a major one.

Sympathy is my main thing in being a narrator. Regularly I get to assist with building extensions to assist with interfacing individuals on a more profound level. Compassion helps patch errors and hold nothing back from individuals who are not the same as we are. It’s genuine.

Forrest Gump takes a person that is a cultural pariah and makes us love him. We interface with his sentiments and experience, despite the fact that a large portion of us won’t ever encounter his battles and by. How would we foster this association? The film acculturates Forrest Gump as somebody who is like us.

He needs exactly the same things that we need and battles with a portion of exactly the same things that we battle with. The film likewise provides us with a brief look at a new world, the battles of Forrest that we can’t connect with, to expand our viewpoint into this other human’s existence and experience. By showing us that Forrest is like us, we gain sympathy. By showing us his interesting battles, we additionally gain sympathy.

Furthermore (ideally) our lives were affected subsequent to watching the film to be seriously understanding and tolerating individuals like Forrest, individuals, not the same as we are.

What’s more, I’d be totally crazy to not specify that Tom Hanks, the entertainer who plays “grown-up” Forrest in the film, is one of the key reasons that our benefit of sympathy is fruitful. He is a trustworthy and magnificent entertainer who can convey so much in his voice and non-verbal communication. (Side Note: It’s quite easy for “Forrest Gump” to be the best film ever with the best entertainer ever, Tom Hanks. At the end of the day, I don’t think the race is questionable, however, track down me assuming you think anybody comes near this super gifted, adaptable, motivating creation.)

Instances of compassion go crazy all through the film. With characters who are single guardians, misuse casualties, and war survivors and that’s only the tip of the iceberg – you make certain to find a person who shows you something about the human condition and opens up your heart.


Another explanation Forrest Gump is the best film, ever, is that it can contact the most stretched-out crowd. Regardless of what sort of films you like, odds are good that your #1 class is integrated into this film. (Indeed, with the exception of Sci-fi, there are still a few pretty cool special visualizations in FG.) Forrest Gump has love, show, humor, experience, war, sports, history, business venture, and legislative issues. It’s in a real sense jam-loaded with kinds.

For the good of quickness, I’ll zero in on one that I think makes this film stick out. History.

I’m one-sided in light of the fact that I love history, however, hold on for me. I’m going to nerd out for a sec. This film works really hard bobbing from miniature to large-scale stories, involving history as a repeating theme and story gadget to move things along. Miniature stories center around distinctive individuals, while large-scale stories center around higher perspective accounts.

Forrest Gump utilizes history to hop between the miniature and full-scale stories and to provide us with a set of course of events, political environment, and American culture all through the order of the film. While Forrest is portraying his life, he discusses his relationship with commonly known authentic figures or occasions.

He alludes to JFK’s death, the coordination of dark understudies into a southern school, the conflict in Vietnam, and Chinese Communism, and that’s just the beginning. Goodness, and he showed Elvis how to move, gave John Lennon the lines to his “Envision” tune, unintentionally revealed the Watergate outrage, and was an early financial backer in “some natural product organization” (Apple).

All through the film, we figure out how Forrest played a part in America’s set of experiences and culture. We likewise get a decent visual visit through the country during Forrest’s three-year run-a-thon. Darn, the present FG discussion is making me need to watch this film once more. Like, presently.


At last! The segment has shown up for discussing character change. In many films (perhaps all motion pictures?), no less than one person goes through a change. Be it physical, social, profound, or philosophical, the person goes through a change that shows the development of some sort, as a rule, to improve things. We should jump into a portion of the changes that FG characters went through. (Whoopee!) I’ll restrict myself to three in light of the fact that – we ain’t got the day in and day out.
