Criminality in Movies (Analysis of Criminality Element in John Wick 2014 by Chad Stahelski)
Elements of crime in films can be found in scenes, story ideas or dialogues. The element of crime can trigger violence in the real world. The purpose of this research is to know and describe the meaning of crime as a learning medium to recognize and prevent criminal acts in the real world. The depiction of criminal elements is influenced by patriarchal ideology and extremism. This research is a qualitative research with John Fiske's semiotic analysis approach using The Codes Of Television theory. The results of this study indicate that the meaning of crime shown in the John Wick film displays and communicates four forms of crime, namely: shooting, killing, beating, and maltreating. The four forms of criminality are influenced by the ideology of masculinity and extremism. Masculinity is a cultural construction attached to men, extremism is a radical belief in a concept. The ideology of masculinity is constructed from the ideology of patriarchy and capitalism and the ideology of extremism is constructed from the ideology of fanaticism.
